Ivy Wang created a stunning site for Naishi Wang, a freelance contemporary dancer and choreographer based here in Toronto. Making use of Naishi's powerful portfolio of work, Ivy was able to balance a delivery of information while maintaining a crisp landing page. Using HTML and CSS, Ivy integrated a full-page video background. Ivy's site makes you want to learn more about Naishi and his talent as a dancer.

Stephanie Cruz is a a graphic designer by day and baker by night who built The Good & Gracious to show off her culinary talents. Not only does her site showcase the delicious treats she makes, it also is an easy-to-use place for her to receive custom orders. Her clean, semantic code makes for great structure in her multi-page site. It certainly doesn't hurt that we're huge fans of macarons here at HackerYou, too!
Jess Jones used her final project to build out a site that isn't only stunning, but also very useful. The Dancer Transition Resource Centre is a national organization that helps dancers make necessary transitions into, within, and from professional performing careers. Jess took the coding skills she learned in class and integrated them in to her workplace with amazing results. It is a fantastic, well-organized resource and beautifully built.
