As a general rule I like to keep a few of my more recent projects up on this page. Do keep in mind that for the most part I choose what to showcase based on a number of factors, I don’t put much stock in how “pretty” a page looks as anyone can do that. I like to showcase pages that are unique in some way. This means at first blush you might see a page and think “oh well, no big deal”, but once you learn the inner workings of what is being done I hope that will change to “Oh wow”….
Painter Website Redesign
This was a fun site to redesign. In order to stand out and give the clients something to tangibly represent what they offer. I used a slider on the main page, everyone uses those these days I hear you say. This one has a twist, each image of a home comes up in black and white, then changes to color, before moving to the next slide. Allowing the client to see the dramatic difference fresh color can bring to their home. The rest of the site is very bold and colorful as well, we’ve received many compliments about it.
Amazon Reseller Website
Visiting this site you will not grasp the complexity of building it. It looks almost basic, but the inner workings of the site took months to perfect. WP was never designed to be an E-commerce site and as such it’s “user” accounts have little depth to them. In this site we have both members selling and buying products. Which meant TWO completely different user types at the top level. Then the sellers had multiple levels as well, we have free sellers trial accounts and then full members and upgraded members and each account has the ability to not only post products for sale but to offer them with coupons and timed special features. This is one of my proudest moments as a designer.
Real Estate Site Redesign
This site allowed me to use the miracle of IDX plugins. They allow you to automatically filter and pull down data from a local or national Real Estate board to populate listings on your site. You can create full page or widget based listings. You can set up default results and add filterable fields. It was quite robust and the end result was stylized very nicely. This site is a bit of a mix of a nice new UI along with a very robust back end. It also uses a lot of cute little animations and content sliders to give it a dynamic feel.
