I developed Rocketship‘s new web site from scratch using php and wordpress. Rockership is an industrial design studio located in the heart of Provo, UT. Rocketship has designed Provo Craft’s Cricut, Philip’s GoLite Blu, and the Jet Boil. With Beth Robertson’s designs, I was able to launch a clean new version of their site in December 2008. Rocketship wanted many custom features.

Aspire has revolutionized the way youth sporting pictures are taken. Providing a green screen allows the players and the parents to design their own posters, shirts, and even trading cards. At Rain I was the primary Flex developer for Aspire’s product designer. The designer allows users to design custom posters, shirts, trading cards, team pictures, blankets, and other products.
After being in beta since July 2008, we released the major release of Aspire in September, 2009.
Aspire’s business model is unique. Aspire does a photo shoot, uploads the green screen photos, autogenerates all products for each player, and then sends the player an email letting them know their account is ready. The user can then login and customize their own products.
“Trading cards are a top seller! Nowhere else on the planet can one design and order a trading card this way! We greatly appreciate the awesome tool you have created.” – Chris from Aspire
At Rain we developed Logomaker, a do-it-yourself logo designer. When a client would come in for a custom logo, designers would come up with many variations and then the client would pick one. Instead of throwing away the variations, Logomaker decided to reuse these assets with an online do-it-yourself logo designer.
I had the opportunity of working on the ask a friend feature and also the credit card authentication process through flash. I learned a lot and was able to deliver what was required.
