2012 campaign application built for Colenso BBDO.
This application scans a person's Facebook page and determines what crimes they might have committed in other countries simply through listing their occupation, gender, relationship status or liking posts that an oppressive regime may deem offensive. The application then lists what the punishment for that 'crime' is likely to be in particular countries.
The application is part of a new branding for the organisation, which has the tagline 'Protect the Human'. The idea is to show New Zealand Facebook users what it's like to live in countries where even joining the social media site is a crime.
2012 fundraising campaign website built for Colenso BBDO using the Zend framework and Facebook API.
The aim of the application is to send a breast cancer awareness message out to every woman in New Zealand by sharing a music video featuring prominent NZ musicians and actors.
Visitors are able to login with their Facebook account and see which of their friends haven't seen the message yet, and one click sends a message to these friends via their Facebook inbox.
So far over 750,000 kiwi women have been reached.
I built both the frontend and backend of the application.
Inspiring you to bake, create & celebrate.

V decided to overhaul the V Republic and create the V Ecosystem - a new website to collect all their activities on one page.
Our solution: a scrolling site comprised of distinct sections each loading content in post format. The backgrounds of each section are animated as the page scrolls to add 'V Energy' to the experience. As new V projects arise they will be added into the Ecosytem.
We integrated the V CRM database with the site so that V members can login to comment on posts, update their preferences and enter competitions.
The site is also extended on Facebook via 3 page tab apps - 'Latest posts', 'Competitiions' and 'Join Us'. 'Like' functionality is also provided throughout.
The site is Flash free and built in HTML5 to be optimized for mobile and search engines. I used the Twitter Bootstrap as a CSS base, employing their responsive framework to simplify the site on mobile devices.

The person with the most 'likes' at the end of the promotional period will have their story shared on TV ONE.

This is a collaborative project by our team formed during the yMedia Challenge. Following our success with Cyberkids, Running With Scissors approached us to create a fun interactive site for the launch of this brand new DB product.
The brief was to educate visitors about when 'Conditions are perfect' for a cider, as this is a relatively new market in NZ. The campaign is targeted at 'go-getters', consumers who catch onto the latest trends, and the site encourages them to spread the word through social media networks.
A special part of the promotion is the use of PocketVouchers - a service where visitors can enter their mobile number to receive a voucher for free cider on their phone. The vouchers are redeemable at Liquorland and over 1000 went on the first day!
I developed the backend which included the social media feeds, Wordpress CMS and the validated PocketVouchers application.
I approached the park manager at Woodhill, Haydn Shore, with an offer to completely overhaul their existing site. I proposed that I review the navigation through the site, improve their maps and gallery sections, and integrate their social media channels including video content. Haydn's main requirements for the new site were for their existing database to be maintained, the new newsletter to be compatible and an online shop added.
"Adam Wood has now supplied and/or performed the full and final consideration and obligations of the bikeparks.co.nz website... and it is wicked. You have been awesome to work with."

In this project we were required to implement all of our Actionscript 3 programming theory. Content had to be loaded externally via XML.
The brief was to create an interactive experience using any media we could source from the film.
I chose Sin City because I love the art direction, and I thought the vector graphic style would make for a high impact project while keeping file size to a minimum.
This animation exercise focused on syncing sound and animation in Flash using the timeline. It also let us implement embedding with swfObject and used some basic Actionscript3 programming for preloading and start/stop and replay functionality.
I chose to create a music video using kinetic type and vector graphics.
