Welcome to tabreturn.com -- a web portfolio of Tristan's work.
I kicked-off my web design career back in the days of PlayStation 1, grunge music, and dial-up modems. Since then, I've worked on a diverse range of digital projects, including web campaigns for clients such as Samsung, BMW, and Mercedes-Benz. More recently, I spent some time in the tech startup space.
Along the way I've developed into an accomplished coder and designer -- obtaining degrees in design and computer science -- and am currently involved in lecturing, research, and work that blends code, interaction, interface design, and creativity.
Use the Thonny Python IDE as a Processing PDE alternative for creative coding. Thonny-py5mode is a plug-in that installs and configures Thonny for use with py5, a Python (3.8+) framework that leverages Processing’s core libs.
