I'm John Forrest, a Seattle-based, front-end web developer of five years. In that time, I have worked on a variety of complex and challenging projects. I flourish in a team-based environment that encourages collaboration and professional development.
I love building dynamic, interactive sites that provide practical solutions for users' needs.
Nintendo of America English Consumer Homepage. I collaborated with a team of designers and developers that completely redesigned this page. My primary tasks were to make the page clean and responsive while adhering to the Nintendo of America style guide. The English page launched in August of 2014.
Nintendo of America Region Select Page. I was tasked to make this page responsive. In addition to the responsive work, I redesigned the map illustration in Photoshop.
Nintendo of America Corporate Site. I was tasked with adding the new header and footer to this site, but adding this code had a negative impact on the legacy code. I essentially had to overhaul the whole corporate site, which included a couple hundred pages.
Nintendo of America Network Status Page. I was tasked with making this page responsive, which was a challenge since it uses an iframe. In addition, I added the header and footer assets.
UCSC Minority Health & Health Disparities International Research Training Program. The primary goals of this project were to make the custom theme match the look and feel of other UCSC pages and be mobile-friendly.
I was brought into this project to customize the comments section to incorporate a rating system using PHP. The live page is behind a paywall, so I've linked to the dev site.
