Project Description

I have designed the official website of Alcheringa 2012, the Cultural Fest of the IITG. Based on its theme ‘Urban Odyssey’, the landing page of the website has been conceptualized as a virtual city arena, which gets animated with a parallax movement of objects present depending upon the mouse movements. I was responsible for the conceptualization, visual design and integration of the website.

Tools and Technologies

We used advanced technologies to build what we had in our minds. The combination of the graphics I made and technologies we used couldn't have been better. If you explore the website, you will find something new about each and every page of the website, which made it such a big hit. Technologies used were:

  • Flash
  • JavaScript and jQuery
  • PHP and Ajax
  • Adobe Creative Suite


This was the first time, I was dealing with a project of such a huge scale, and it was a small team of two members; we had a lot of fun during the design of the site. Alcheringa being the Annual Cultural Festival of IIT Guwahati with more than 5000 people involved in it and around 100 colleges participating, there were a lot of expectations from us, and I can proudly say that our website has taken Alcheringa to the next level. As soon as I got up in the morning after we launched the website, my facebook account was flooding with notifications and messages, along with 3 offers asking me to design their Company and Fest websites. It was a very great experience for me to work for Alcheringa.
