Overview

Dan developed a 3D animation engine used to dynamically build Kayak flip-board banners (2010-present). The project was first implemented on the Kayak “Make a Flippy” page, then packaged as a Flash component to support third-party distribution and ad banner production. Dan produced banners for Hotwire and Yahoo! (see Fig 1). He also created a standard collection of Kayak marketing banners at common industry sizes, and localized components and banners to 8+ European languages.
