This was a very fun project to work on.
In response to many video parodies and tributes found online, Les Stroud tasked me with creating this portal for people to share either videos they created or found online.
I did all the artwork and programming on this project which included a custom built content management system for handling submissions, managing contests and many other features.
As the resident “web guy” for Les Stroud Productions, I was tasked with maintaining and improving upon the flagship website for Les Stroud.
Built on WordPress this site has seen many changes since I started working on it and is a great example of a “working” site. Many website are built and then left alone but this site is constantly evolving.
Whether it be the addition of jquery scrollbars and lightboxes, HTML 5 video fallback for iOS or Flash video on the homepage (with graceful fallback of course) this site is always looking to provide it’s visitors with a great user experience.
The original artwork was done by Luke Despatie & The Design Firm.
