Flickr Ocean Trawler


Unique graphic style I created using my Intuos 5 pen tablet was inspired by British naval trawlers sweeping for mines. Each successful search is saved as operation with results available in two modes: intelligence and visual.

Technically its work algorithm is passing query - getting results from Flickr over API - processing and saving data to MySQL - rendering views. And it is done as a single page application firing ajax requests in background instead of refreshing entire page.


Flickr Ocean Trawler is API experiment made before WWI Centenary. Picture search and data retrieving process is organized as navy operation.
