In MMDS we were given a client to produce a website for, in my case it was the Pine Rivers Veterinary Surgery.

Two new useful tools I learnt for this project were the Mootools JS framework and the CodeIgniter PHP framework.

Early logo designs, though a simpler 2 colour design was used because these were perceived to be too detailed and too "swiss"

Examples for Mootools and Google Maps will be added in separate posts for better indexing.

I know it’s been a while since my last post but with uni ramping up I really didn’t have time to write anything new, however, I do come back with more info and ramblings to share.

First up, you can now follow me on twitter.

Secondly, this semester saw me undertake MMDS1400 at UQ which was an intro to web course. The next post will include details on that project.

and lastly, the UQ ICC website is nearing completion for a semester 2 release date. The final choice for the development was influenced by what I had learnt in MMDS. It will involve a PHP MVC framework called Codeigniter and UI enhancement covered by an open-source framework Mootools.
