Web Design

I Hate My Brain - May 2018

I Hate My Brain is my individual senior project for the New Media department at UNC Asheville. I Hate My Brain is a website created to portray my experience struggling with anxiety during several different points in my life. The site uses video and text-based elements in order to convey specific events in my life and their repetitive nature. This project was created using HTML5, CSS and Javascript programming skills.



Latin American Corruption Crusade - May 2018

Latin American Corruption Crusade is my group-based senior capstone project for the New Media department at UNC Asheville. Latin American Corruption Crusade is a website that uses video and text to portray a myriad of social issues in Latin America, focusing specifically on corruption in the government. This site is meant to provide information about Latin American social issues to those who may not be aware of them. This website was a collaborative effort between fellow UNC Asheville students Alex Fresa, Sean Katzman, and myself.



Stockopolis - May 2018

Stockopolis is a web design project that is intended as an exercise in nonlinear storytelling and web navigation. The site is a choose-your-own adventure story involving branching pathways.. The site uses stock photos for the story’s characters, poking fun at the absurdity of the nature of stock photography. This project was created using HTML5, CSS, and Javascript programming skills.



Access Denied - March 2018

Access Denied is a web design project with the goal of making use of an online network. Inspired by the FCC’s repeal of Net Neutrality in 2017, this website is designed to become more and more unusable and difficult to navigate the more the user navigates through it. This project was created using HTML5, CSS, and Javascript programming skills.



A Feast for the Eyes - May 2017

A Feast for the Eyes is a web design project meant to provide people learning to cook (college students, recent graduates, etc.) with simple recipes that rely on visual and interactive communication. This project was created using HTML5, CSS, and Javascript programming skills.

Interactive Installation

The Center for Food Porn Rehabillitation - December 2017

The Center for Food Porn Rehabilitation is an interactive installation in which participants pretend to cook using mostly inedible ingredients in order to cure them of their addiction to food porn and cooking shows. This installation was created in collaboration with fellow UNC Asheville students Forest Gamble, Klesa Colgrove, and Molly Sheehan.

Beauty - October 2017

Beauty is an interactive video installation in which participants enter a space with three video channels while wearing light-refracting glasses and headphones with audio. This installation was designed to cause each person who entered the space to have their own unique experience, tying into the theme that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. This installation was created in collaboration with fellow UNC Asheville students Alex Fresa, David Eron, and Molly Sheehan and was installed on the UNC Asheville campus.

About/Contact

About Me:

My name is David Jordan and I’m an interactive designer from Cary, North Carolina. Through the five years I’ve spent at the University of North Carolina at Asheville, I’ve not only been cultivating my interactive design skills, but I’ve been realizing my artistic vision and establishing my aesthetics as well. After going through my undergraduate career, I’ve discovered that I tend to create work that falls into three different categories that tend to mix together.

The first of the three categories I classify my work under is my work dedicated to raising awareness for issues of social justice. I tend to make pieces relating to social issues not only using artistic design, but commercial design as well. Major works of mine that fall under this category include I Hate My Brain, Latin American Corruption Crusade, and Access Denied.

The second of these three categories is my work in which I rely upon abstraction, both in imagery and design. My use of abstraction stems from a desire to create things that are new and previously unseen. Major works of mine that fall under this category include Access Denied, Ritual, and Beauty.

The third and final category which I use to classify my work is the work that uses elements of humor. I often use humor because I think that when done well, humor can enhance the previous two categories I’ve mentioned, particularly the element of abstraction. Major works of mine that fall under this category include Stockomon, Access Denied, The Cream of the Crop, and The Center for Food Porn Rehabilitation.

In my future endeavors as an interactive designer, I hope to involve these creative elements into my work in one way or another.
