Hi there, my name is Rick. I'm an Interactive Developer currently interning at Firstborn in New York. Below you'll find a few of my personal en professional projects.
For his first solo album, music artist Pete Philly wanted to give something back to his fans. The concept was to release a track every week for 14 weeks, accompanied by a super slowmo hi-resolution video. His fans could then download the high quality MP3 and easily share the music on Facebook, Twitter and Hyves. A custom Facebook player was created to enhance the sharing experience.
The site has won multiple awards, such as the 'FWA: site of the day' and the 'Red Dot: best of the best'.
I frequently visit 22tracks.com to discover new tracks, but struggle to add songs to my personal playlists. Thatís why I created the 22tracker. This Chrome Extension adds a bar on top of the 22tracks site. It searches the songs on The Hype Machine, Soundcloud and Spotify, providing users with links to the specific songs so they can add them to their playlist. Additionally it allows last.fm scrobbling.
To promote the 2010 World Cup from a Dutch perspective, five young Dutch artists created an art piece to portrait their love for football and the Dutch team. The website served as a platform to showcase their work. Visitors were also able to vote for their favourite artist through Facebook, Twitter and Hyves.
This site was built to promote the 2011 G-Star global women's night. Women all over the world were able to locate their locale party, register their attendance and come back afterwards to see if they made it into the wall-to-wall interactive gallery.
Momkai Maido was developed to improve project timetracking. By creating an AIR desktop application, co-workers always have their time tracking within reach. Maido makes time tracking easier, more intuitive and faster for co-workers.
