Experience

  • Pluto Post Portfolio (Development)
    http://bryangrezeszak.com/work/pluto

    Pluto Post is an amazing post production studio working on everything from TV commercials to movies. However, they aren’t web guys so they needed someone to build out their portfolio and create a CMS that would allow them to add their videos and take/manipulate screenshots of them for thumb images.

  • Save the Date Wedding Game (Development)
    http://bryangrezeszak.com/work/savedate

    For my own wedding, I wanted something fun for the save-the-date. So I built a fully interactive JavaScript game about me and my wife. With full audio and 8-bit graphics and both platform and top-down style game engines, playing out a gamified version of meeting and dating my wife. It was a big hit, and a lot of fun to make and play.

  • SorbaView Shield Demo (Development)
    http://bryangrezeszak.com/work/sorbaview

    When SorbaView developed new medical Shield technology that prevented IV lines from being pulled out, they wanted a 3D interactive demo of the technology to show to professionals in the field. Their normal advertising agency didn’t have the skillset to make such a thing so I was brought in.

    The final product was a fully interactive 3D view of the product which can be tugged on in any direction, showing the resilience of the product in action.

  • Hyperr (Development)
    http://bryangrezeszak.com/work/hyperr

    Hyperr is an amazing tech startup working with creating user-driven polling for eCommerce websites. As the main front-end engineer on this project, I've had the pleasure of building the entire polling and poll building web apps (both being React-based projects). Hyperr has patents pending on these interfaces and is doing amazing things with them with some very cool clients. I couldn't be happier to work with them and build their interfaces.

  • School Wealth (Development)
    http://bryangrezeszak.com/work/schoolwealth

    School Wealth is a tech startup made to bring intelligent analysis of all aspects of a school district to the fingertips of its administrators.

    I worked on this project full-stack—from design to a React.js based front-end to a Node.js/MongoDB based back-end—and created a robust REST API and a beautifully animated and clean front end with plenty of data visualization. It's a perfect example of my more business-oriented interfaces.

  • RefluxJS (Development)
    https://github.com/reflux/refluxjs

    I'm a member of the RefluxJS project, one of the most popular Flux libraries around. Most notably, I'm the creator of its entire and complete modern ES6 interface; built it to work idiomatically with modern React. It is used to handle the data flow of tens of thousands of React-based projects around the world.

  • DepthJS (Development)

  • Top Ten Front-End Design Rules For Developers (Publication)
    Truly understanding design is easier said than done. Coding and aesthetic design require very different skill sets, which is why some front-end developers aren’t as proficient in design as they could be, and the quality of their work suffers for it. In this post, Toptal Freelance Software Engineer Bryan Grezeszak explains why good front-end developers have to follow essential design principles down to the pixel, and should regularly seek out advice and feedback from their designers.
