WORDPRESS  
CTS

CTS
http://worldseminary.com

 

A new WordPress website for CTS using a very complex responsive Wordpress theme (child theme) and optiontree. This site has many custom-coded admin features and nearly complete control over the layout. There are over 100 pages of content, custom grid pages and customized css to suit.

Comet Solar

This is a WordPress website for a commercial and residential solar panel installation company. I used the latest free WordPress theme that came with WordPress and customized it with everything I could find, especially colors and the menu, but he really wanted something more corporate looking. The site looks so amazing, though.

ARIDAPEST
http://aridapest.com

 

This is a website for WordPress site based on the original design. Then, she requested a static site be created from another design, with new content. After that, the client didn't understand why she couldn't edit the site from her hosting control panel, so I converted the new site over to WordPress, created the template, built a customized form, and added and configured about a dozen plug-ins.

MY LIST AND TRAFFIC
http://mylistandtraffic.com

 

This is a WordPress site built to suit for a writer of articles related to getting more internet traffic. Custom layout, images and CSS were used, in addition to custom coding for some of the functions she wanted. All articles were input by me, as well as adding links to the multi-part articles so the user could simply click to go to the next one in the sequence and not have to go back to the list. I truly enjoy working with WordPress.

 

WEBSITE DESIGN & DEVELOPMENT  

TOXIC GARB
http://toxicgarb.com

 

This is an osCommerce store built for a new clothing line coming out this summer. It has a totally customized design and layout, meta tag control, template system, discount coupons, wishlist, custom contact form, updated sitemap, robot file, fancy invoicing, fancy html emails and more.

FUEL SAVER 5000
http://27moons.com/FS5000/

 

This is a website for a new fuel saving cylinder that recycles fumes, increasing gas mileage significantly.

ULTIMATE RELAXATION
http://27moons.com/MASSAGE/

 

This is a brochure site for a massage therapist to list her services, prices, set appointments, etc. I paid extreme attention to all details of this layout, even down to the contact form.

DON'T PANIC
http://dontpaniclive.com

 

This is a website for a book-sales campaign, combined with newsletters and direct mail pieces. This website allows users to download free large versions of the book's forms to print out and use at home. There are also exercises to practice and a variety of other free self-help information. I created the forms and figures for this book.

 

WEBSITE DEVELOPMENT ONLY  

ANXIETIES STORE
http://anxieties.com/store

 

This osCommerce store was added to match the site perfectly and has many contributions installed as well as some custom programming to enhance the control panel. Now the client has complete control over all aspects of his store, and can export all orders into quickbooks for easy accounting. I also handle Constant Contact mailings for this site.

kissofnature

KISS OF NATURE SHOP
http://www.kissofnaturesoap.com/shop/index.php

 

This osCommerce store was customized to match their design and the shopping cart was edited to add a guest account and gift certificates, new fields were added, pages to finalize purchase minimized and bugs were fixed, among other things.

Summary: Installed Guest Checkout / 1-Page Checkout on site modified the css and layout to match existing site design, added icons from the client and appropriate text messages, and modified code. Everything was done within osCommerce specifications.

minnetonkaworks

Minnetonka Works
http://minnetonkaworks.com

 

This is actually a PrestaShop store that was built by the client. I had to import products, which was extremely complicated for just a small amount of products. He wanted them to be in parent, child and other categories/sub-categories, so I had to create all those. I think maybe the shop was broken but he didn't want to start fresh, so I had to work with what was there. I did get to change the colors to suit my preferences more, and although it's not a spectacular site, it's far better than it was at first, and it's still up after all these years!

Summary: A website for wooden products or the kits to make them. This has very few products but the migration was a bit complex because of the way PrestaShop sets up its categories and the client had products in several categories. His son makes all the products, and so this is a family business venture for both income and learning potential.

READ WITH MAX
http://readwithmax.com/catalog

 

This is an osCommerce store built around the main character of a new children's book. The store was designed to match the main site exactly so that it integrates seamlessly. It processes using QBMS, exports orders to quickbooks, includes a template system and discount coupons.

CURVY TEMPTATIONS
http://curvytemptations.com

 

This was a very old version of osCommerce with a generic storefront. The client had a new design made but did not want to keep her existing store.  I installed a new version of osCommerce, implemented the design and added several modules to customize payment and shipping.

NEED REPAIRS NOW
http://needrepairsnow.com

 

This is a business directory site completed with the phpmydirectory script. It involved a lot of custom coding to change the layout and the functionality that the client desired. It has a tremendous backend and could offer a great deal more functionality, especially as a true directory, but right now it has just begun and will evolve as the client sees fit.

 

WEBSITE REDESIGN  

GREEN FAIRY ABSINTHE
http://greenfairy.org

 

This is a redesign of a website with absinthe information and accessories.

MAPSHOP WORLD (not live yet)
http://27moons.com/MAPS2/

 

This is a complete redesign of mapshops.com world maps page with mousovers (popups) for the map icons on the right. The client asked me to code one link from the left and he wanted to do the rest himself. He currently has a 2,000-page site built in frontpage that he did himself, and he is eager to learn to use Dreamweaver.

BELLYFLOPME SHIRTS
http://bellyflopme.com

 

This is a redesign of entire site and addition of custom quote forms.
After the site was finished, I designed his osCommerce store to match exactly, repaired his database and moved the site to a new host (me!).

FUNBANK FLASH CONVERSION
http://funbank.com

 

This was a huge flash file that had to be converted into html with flash elements. It was quite difficult because the file did not use objects for buttons, etc., and so they had to be cut from a flat layout. Luckily I'm good with image work.

 

DESIGN CONCEPTS  

DA'SIGNER SHOES
Not Online

 

This was a redesign concept done in April '09 for a California store that sells shoes, handbags and the like. They had already chosen a designer and recently told me the site was finished, but it does not appear to be live yet. It is also possible they are having difficulty letting go of their original storefront after becoming attached to it.

BIOCELLA
View Concepts

 

This is a set of concepts for a site redesign. The client was unsure what his client wanted and could not communicate effectively. I do love this look and will use it at some point. If you like it, too, let me know!

FRUGAL FINDS
View Concepts

 

This is a set of concepts for a vintage clothing site. Like some people, they decided to let their friend handle the design. I don't think their site is up yet and it's been a few years. Oh well.

 

I like these a lot and would like to use them somehow. The colors are really nice.

CLICK COURIER SERVICE
http://clickcourierservice.com

 

This design is for a British courier service, which was just an idea in someone's head. I don't think he actually had started the company yet. He wanted a very specific color scheme and a very simple layout.

ALMEDA ONLINE COLLEGE
Not Online

 

This is a redesign of a website for an online college. The client paid a number of designers to send him layouts, and mine was chosen second, so it was not used. They did use their selected layout for a while, but have since redesigned their website again.

ALAN SMOLA MAGIC
View Concept

 

This is a concept for a talented magician who has been performing tricks since he was young. I wanted to do something really professional with a little flair. I always liked black and white with red.

BALLOON RIDES USA
View Concepts

 

This is a set of concepts for a site redesign.

ELEPHANT EARS
View Page

 

This is a banner for a yahoo store. I had to get someone to do the rtml for me, so I got the guy who wrote the book on it. The site turned out great and the banner was just perfect. The site does not seem to be online any longer.

THE ENGLISH GUY
Not Online

 

This is a concept for a DJ. It's quite old.

 

NEWSLETTERS  

ANXIETIES.COM NEWSLETTERS

 

Using a design to match his site, these are sent every two months via Constant Contact. I've been doing these since 2007.

CONGRESS JEWELERS NEWSLETTERS

 

Quarterly newsletters are sent out to members with articles about jewelery and general company information. These are also sent via Constant Contact; however the images had to be uploaded using their interface and coding this was made more difficult because of that. I much prefer to put the images on a server and reference them from there.

 

CONGRESS JEWELERS EMAILS

 

These are various holiday and contest emails sent using Constant Contact. These were much easier to code than the newsletters due to the much lower number of images.

   
 
   
LOGOS  

AMEDCHI LOGO EDIT

 

This was a logo I edited for a client. He provided me with a jpg and I had to work with that, but it turned out fine.

   
MAPS  

MAPS FOR REALTORS/DEVELOPERS

 

I have done so many maps for realty companies and real estate developers, I couldn't possibly show them all. It is a time-consuming job, but it's actually very enjoyable. I like changing the colors, adding gradients and drop shadows and making the little road sign icons. I suppose I'm easily amused.

 

PHOTOGRAPHY  

HAPPY NEW YEAR CARD

This is a photo of my favorite tree after our first ice storm. I made it into a card and sent it out to everyone online.
