Drinking coffee with JavaScript

Description

Do you buy your daily coffee at Starbucks? Peet's? Philz? if so, that's a lot of buck for your bean. Savor your money and your time by drinking Bespin Brew ~ coffee in the cloud. You can drink it anywhere, anytime. All you need is an internet connection.

This personal project gave me a fun opportunity to improve my JavaScript skills by creating an interactive coffee drinking experience.

My Role

Besides the concept and the coding, Bespin Brew also uses my own icons and whimsical illustrations. The project was further enhanced by incorporating and editing sound from the FreeSound.org repository

Client

Tools

HTML, CSS, JavaScript, jQuery, Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, Audacity, MP3

Key Insights
