About this Project:

This project was what I created for a coding competition in an internship with AMERICA ON TECH.

We were given the task to create a website for a fake mock client and they gave us different company names, which mine happened to be "Tech Arts NYC".

This was intended to be a group project but I was the only one to contribute to the making of the website and my teammates just helped me present it. This website took 3 months to make and all the buttons except the contacts section, works and leads to another page. The content on this website was completely made up by me. I presented it in December and gave 3rd place to 80 other groups. The purpose of the website is placed in the about section on the website.

More About this Project

When u hover over the fading images it pauses from moving if u want to look at an image for a longer period of time before it fades.

Click all buttons to see the additional pages they lead to. In order to go back to the main page used the "<" at the top of the website or computer.

Lastly this is a MOCK website meaning it's a made up unreal website so the content on the page is fake and made up but the website itself was made by me.

WOW! This site is beautifully made. I love how interactive it is. You have a lot of professional level skills when it comes to web design - keep at at! I would love to see this website become more responsive to screen size, but I know you were working with limited time, and a smaller than expected team. Overall, this is an excellent site - very modern and fresh feeling. You have a future in building digital products for sure!

I love the little touches you put in such as a functioning term of conditions, the mouse-over content, and error checking in the payment form. Website building is one of those things that sound simple but to make a great end-product takes months of hard work, staring at StackOverflow and continually adjusting pixels in CSS so that the text will fit in a box the way you want it to (I may or may not be speaking from experience).
If I were to offer some feedback it would be to slow down the animations so that the artwork can be taken in and be less "flashing".
Overall I think you did an amazing job at creating a functioning product with retro-futuristic vibes. As someone who is passionate about technology, I love your idea of combining it with performing arts. Reminds me of a dance group Light Balance that was on America's Got Talent in finals that did this. There's a lot of potential in merging the technological world we live in to create great works of art.
Given how little time (and resources) you had, your project was great and you should be proud.

Great job building an interactive website. I would love to see it focus a bit more on user-centered design (which is hard to do with a basic prompt) so you could focus on the content that matters most to a user. I really loved the interactivity and web design, and how the website is navigable through the various buttons and channels. Overall great job, you have a bright future ahead in web design!

Thank you for a record-breaking 14th anniversary event! Comments are officially closed until next year.
