As If Productions is a design and development studio specializing in websites, online services, games, events and interactive systems.
Founded in 1991 by game designer, writer & programmer Tod Foley, AIP has developed immersive websites, virtual worlds, roleplaying games, CD-ROMs, viral marketing and live promotional events for clients including Comedy Central, 20th Century Fox Films, Sony/Epic Records, Times-Mirror Magazines, Walt Disney Records, Revelations Entertainment, Iron Crown Enterprises, The WELL and The Electronic Cafe International. No matter what type of interactive system you have in mind, we're here to bring it to life - from design and development to webhosting and support.
Another wacky round of side-splittingly-honest products from the sardonicists at Cerebral Itch, this site features a variety of witty T-shirts topped with heaping mounds of 'tude. Code-wise, it's a variation on the original Axis CMS system that powers the main Cerebral Itch site - now enhanced with our new Gender Discretion Module.* Stop in and smell the Sarcasm! Site design and T-shirt designs by Paul Chamberlain.
Therapies for fibromyalgia sufferers, from clinical hypnotherapist Viviane Oberhand. AIP created this website in record time using Drupal 5.1. Design based on a theme by Siteground5, with graphics by Robert Oberhand.
AIP did a live database and platform migration for the popular site dlisted.com when blogger Michael K decided to move from WordPress to Drupal. The customized theme is based on "Amadou" by Jay Wolf, with art by Mark Robinson.
ThePalace was (and still is) an amazing piece of social software: a Palace site is a programmable, graphical chat room - complete with avatars, cartoon balloons, games and animations - which can be used to simlate entire virtual worlds. AIP began designing Palace sites way back in the beta days of 1996. Over the next several years we created various Palace-related gizmos & doodads, many of which eventually found their way to this page.
The URL Encoder creates an ASCII-only version of any text placed into it. Its primary use is to encode URL strings into a form that can be passed via Email or Scripted Web Links without altering the actual content in any way.
