Update - React Revamp v3.0
In the beginning of 2020, I took it upon myself with my developed technical skills to rewrite the entire site using React to write a much simpler and more streamlined app as well as bring the site into the modern age with responsive and mobile compatibility.

Heard neumorphism is all the rage these days...

In less than a week the new 2020 revamp went live with a sleek and simplified look and some subtle branding updates. Currently coordinating a production deploy, but the staging deploy can be visited here: https://dlinb.github.io/

Role
The team for our v2.0 update comprised of my friend from google, another UI/UX student and I. My main role was to take on the sole responsibility of developing the new site from scratch as well as finalizing some of the graphics and iconography. The resulting project was developed using HTML, CSS3, jQuery and Javascript.

Our audience really loved mixing the sounds together. Frighteningly, Playground and Fire became a hit combination. I had a few, more normal, favorite mixes of my own.
Future
The project saw some popularity with a few blog posts featuring the site and a consistent stream of traffic between 2000-3000 visitors till this day.
Version 2.1 was in the works with added functionality and some backend changes to offload server hosting to Soundcloud, but lack of time from our team meant these initiatives didn't receive the polish they deserved and were never launched.
We also had aspirations for a mobile app.
Some of the added functionality included the ability to queue up songs from Soundcloud, a Randomize button, and a Mute button.
The main UI disappears to reveal a work timer showing our users how long they've been focused.
