Other problems solved: Web master of this e-commerce start-up since the business inception in 2007. As the company grows, the product line changes. So I've been bringing the site through many and often dramatic changes. When the owner approached with news she was expanding into a new product line and asked me to develop the site without losing the current audience, came up with the general parent name, Out Loud Audiobooks. The Knitting Out Loud audience is maintained as the old url redirects to the child Knitting Out Loud.
I designed and currently develop this site for a visual artist. Initially I drew the palette logo in Illustrator then using Photoshop added the image of the artist's signature to form brand identity. Beginning as a HTML redesign in 2006 with the processing and optimizing of images of paintings in Photoshop, now the artist's Portfolio pages load dynamically. I wrote the PHP Scripts, built the MySQL database and hand coded the CSS layout in 2009.
Problems solved: the artist was dissatisfied with previous sites he felt were cluttered and the quality of the images of his paintings was often unsatisfactory. He loves the visual, minimalist design of this site. So, I also wrote HTML code for the associated branded email campaign. In 2009 I tweaked code to brand the blog. In 2009 realizing that the initial static site had grown out of control with hundreds of static pages sitting on the server, the site underwent a major update bringing the previously static Portfolio to its now dynamic state greatly reduces the number of files on the server. Currently we are working on migrating the blog from Blogger to WordPress.
A colorful, fun, playful Flash site created using Actionscript with animated sunflower buttons for navigation along with the help of a bird, a bee and a butterfly button. With links for her books to the Amazon Associate program.
Originally designing and developing the site in 2008 for this writer of several different genera seeking an online portfolio that brought it all together and is very uniquely her. Recent update in 2010 adding a bunch of new content.
In 2010, I tweaked the theme template code to brand this Wordpress CMS for the non-profit Doorway to Peace and transferred content from my original site designed and developed in Flash.
Problems solved: After I started working with WordPress in 2009 I realized right away it would be the right platform for this site. Originally, I created it as a 25 page Flash site using Actionscript with movie-clips of dynamically loading pages to keep the whole thing loading quickly. It was cool, but it proved time consuming to update. So in the spring of 2010, I redesigned and migrated the site onto the WordPress platform. Now it is much easier to add content, and the comment system allows for the organization to interact better with their audience. Also attaching PayPal donation buttons to help bring in cash flow for their many wonderful projects.
Teri (Dunn) Chace is a horticultural writer who needed a well organized web presence where the viewer could get an overview of her extensive work. I created the header logo in Photoshop using one of her favorite photos that is just perfect for her nature topics and ran the color scheme out of that. linked her 28 book titles to the Amazon Associate program and created and added links to PDF files of examples of her work.
A simple five page portfolio site created in WordPress provides this artist with a web presence that he can update himself keeping his costs fixed.
Problems solved: Helped out with this site. Primarily a visual artist, the client wanted PDF files of the scores of his own musical compositions and MP3 files of recordings of his music to be very unobtrusively for sale on the site using payPal. I created a MySQL database and coded the PHP pages and we linked them from the bottom of his biography page. Found and purchased an inexpensive add on PHP script so only when the payPal transaction is complete the PDF of the score or the MP3 recording can be download. Also optimized a bunch of the images of paintings and created the artist signature logo in Photoshop.
This is a lovely one page site that says a lot. Here you will find some good examples of tables and lists nicely coded with CSS so the text changes color when the viewer hovers (IE6 and later). The logo and the image bar were created in Photoshop.
