I'm Tomas, and this is my portfolio. I am currently living in Ottawa, Canada after just finishing my undergraduate degree from Carleton University, majoring in Interactive Multimedia and Design and a diploma of Advanced Technology from Algonquin College. I have experience in web development working with the federal government, private industry, and non profits. I have built sites in Drupal, Wordpress, following webstandards including CLF 2.0 and more.
I absolutely love the web, especially all those cool new tools and social content. I also love biking, bacon, Lost, and video games (good 'ol NES). I love punk and ska, and any good rock show.
Please, check out my work with the titles to the right, or follow me on the web with those little badges in the bottom corner, or you can get a hold of me with the email address right above those.
Thanks for stopping by!
Oasis YM is a student ministry in Orleans, Ontario. The website serves as a means of communication with students and their parents, providing information on meetings and special events, as well as different types of media.
The Oasis YM website is a custom Drupal website made to suit the needs of the group. The deisgn was meant to simplify the overabundance of content on their previous site and condense to feature most important information.
Echelon was a group of young adults who went to Vancouver during the 2010 Winter Olympics to volunteer in hospitality as well as perform a drama for teens about depression and abusive relationships. The blog was made to keep friends and family back home up to date on what they were doing on a daily basis
The Echelon blog was created in Wordpress with a custom theme. The project also involved photography of the individuals.

MDS Nordion Flash Piece
MDS Nordion processes and delivers medical isotopes for treatment in hospitals all over North America. This piece describes the story of how the life saving materials get into the doctors hands to treat patients
The MDS Nordion flash piece was written in ActionScript 3, and much of the animations are scripted. I was required to write the code and create fluid animations for the piece, as well as tweak provided designs.
Not Even Death
Not Even Death is a hardcore band from Ottawa, Ontario who are looking for a website to share with their fans. The image seen above is one of my favourite concepts from early on in the project. Due to visual identity changes, the website was never completed, but will launch with a new design, along with a brand new album, to be completed Summer 2010.
Dani Vector Piece
Purely a personal piece of a photograph I took, completed entirely in Illustrator.
Oasis YM often requires graphic work for many events, this one being for a retreat they held. I was given the title and tried to create something thet visually represented the theme.
The logo is another piece I created for Oasis YM and was used for a number of years.
Ignite was a concert, I had all freedom with the logo, and the above is the final result.
This is a concert poster I designed in Photoshop and Illustrator. The goal was something that reminds the viewer of a comic book.
