Best Travel Morocco

A tour operator focused on authentic and off-the-beaten-path experiences, Best Travel Morocco approached me with a project to redesign their website from the ground up.

Leveraging Squarespace's developer platform, we created a unique design that moved away from the "Squarepsace look" while at the same time making it easier for the team to use.

The result is a modern website that puts the beauty of Morocco front and center, accented with traditional patterns that pay homage to its culture and heritage.


FlightBase is a personal project that uses natural language processing to uncover flight deals in blogs and forums.

Optical Illusion Museum

The exhibits are natural engagement points on social media, and the idea was to focus on bringing social validation front and center on the website by featuring past visitors' Instagram posts on the home page.
