Hey there, I'm Zachary Taylor, a freelance web developer and designer living in Brooklyn, NY. I've been building things online since the halcyon days of Geocities, my earliest projects featured cutting-edge web technologies like flaming skull gifs and unceasing MIDI soundtracks.

I'm currently designing and developing an internal social network as part of the Bitcoin Foundation's new membership platform. The application is built on the LAMP stack and allows members to organize events, share documents, discuss pertinent issues and share emerging news.
PRA Health Sciences is a Contract Research Organization (CRO) with over 10,000 employees and offices in 70 locations.
Trellist Marketing & Technology asked me to design and develop a new responsive layout for a site created for Connolly Gallagher, a law firm based in Wilmington, DE. The new layout includes device-specific Wordpress functionality and provides a clean, readable experience across a wide range of mobile devices and tablets.
Working with another designer's assets at Trellist, I created an HTML5 prototype of Capital One's mobile banking launchpad. We used PhoneGap to deliver the code as a native iOS app, which was later developed in Objective C. The client's internal development team was able to save significant resources by conducting early usability testing on this prototype instead of a fully-realized native app.
This iPad application provides educational resources detailing approved disease treatments and clinical trial data. I used a helpful HTML5 media framework, Popcorn.js, to sync element transitions in the app to specific events in video dramatizations of doctor/patient interactions. Several interactive exercises were included to test user comprehension at the close of each section.
I reused my initial code several times to release new modules periodically, iterating the template with new content for a speedy delivery to the client.
