Skyco GmbH Berlin

Web Design and Developement Prenzlauer Berg

In 2007 I've been working at Skyco, the Berlin web design company with the lizard logo.

Skyco specializes in programming web applications mainly using Flash, xml and php. One of our most exciting tools was click2print, producing online artwork and sending it as a pdf to the printer.

Following is an overview of my work for Skyco:

Artega

The new sports car of Paragon GmbH. It was too boring for this traditional supplier of the automobile industry to only drive around incognito built into external companies' cars and besides, their ceo is something of a race driver.

The Website is produced completely in Flash. Skyco programmed a Flashplayer with built in XML parser. All content and style information is fed in by xml sheets. I made the markup and created the scan effect of the introductory car film ...check the site!

The Artega site is not supported by Skyco anymore and the design has changed since. The links above do not point to http://www.artega.de.

Paragon Redesign

Since Skyco designed the previous version of this car components producer ...here comes the relaunch!

I did the markup. I love getting a great layout where I can arrange it with html, fully enjoying the chance to bring a cool design to life on the web.

While I am vastly improving my skills with tables, I sometimes feel like I'm living in a museum. Nevertheless, to keep in step with Skyco, I do table mark ups whenever requested. I try to avoid blind gifs and continuously make suggestions whenever opportunities for more progressive web design are possible ...check the relaunch!

Since Skyco is not supporting Paragon anymore, examples provided here come from my original markup. The link only provides the start page and one content page. The Paragon-online site has been changed using our design and may be found under http://www.paragon-online.de.

Cellion

Website for the telecommunication company producing sim cards for German cell phones having holidays in the States.

Luckily, I was free to mark up the start page the way I wanted since we were short of time and it is not integrated into the CMS. However, by request of Skyco, everything else is made with tables. Skyco is concerned that modern webdesign may collide with self-progammed cms, but I am in constant conversation about how we as a company can move forward, especially as cell phones and pdas become more popularly used for web access.

At the last second, Cellion requested a video barrier page between the start site and real content, and I was again called upon to insert--OK, I'll say it--this relatively useless, and I think, expensive advertisement film, but luckily, I saved it from mark up with tables. Cellion wanted a simple flash movie centered so as not to distract the viewer, concentrating on the message only ...check the site!

Golfclub Gatow

I helped put this site into a cms and did the nice transparent pull down navigation. While Skyco would normally build the navigation with JavaScript, I pulled the navigation as an unordered list out of the cms and styled it with css ...check the preview here!

Fonds Advisory

Only a Micropage so far. The first Skyco website produced with web standards. The site is going to be extended ...check the site!

Inubit

Inubit, a local Berlin software company presents it's services on a CD ROM. This CD originally contained flash content which was developed by Skyco. In 2007 I transferred the content into HTML by keeping the look and feel the same ...check the Inubit presentation here!

I also maintained Inubit's CMS-driven website. I helped the Inubit team to put up new content and improved the site by replacing the JavaScript navigation with an HTML/CSS based pull down navigation ...check the site.

Foto Book

We created this foto book application with our pseudo Flex system, an Actionscript xml parser. We originally developed this application for Hapag-Lloyd. They use it on their cruise ships so people can upload their fotos onboard onto a computer without internet connection. Therefor we used Zinc to create executable files from the Flash application.

Later we sold the Foto book to Deutsche Bank and this printer in West Germany. Because of the use of xml it is very easy to customize it. Design your Foto book online or download the Foto book app here

The link to the online version went stale. The downloadable version was last updated in 2008. I would advise against using it but if you do send me a note. I am just curious: Did it crash your browser?

Sorry, that project died.

Skyco donated a website to this aid organization helping children in Sri Lanka an all over the world ...donate!

The site got redesigned, sorry.
