The Project

[Link to live site]

For my multimedia final project I created a website to host the (as of now) nonexistent Globe Choice Awards. The idea was to create a platform where students could nominate and vote for their favorite restaurants and find new ones to try out. This would also be a way to promote the Globe and possibly garner student discounts at the restaurants involved. 

 

The site has several polls for voting, restaurant profiles and a gallery, extensive tagging so users can sort by price range and cuisine, a map that can be viewed by price range and cuisine, and social media integration to encourage users to share who they voted for and see who other people voted for on a tagboard. I would have liked to have more reporting on the restaurants, maybe some video or radio. But it was a fun project I'd like to revisit in the future.
