Web Design

Foxy Rocket, LLC

 Foxy Rocket contracted for website design and development for both desktop and mobile deployment. This was a complete site overhaul in preparation for release of the Volcano Updates app, hence all the lava and volcano photos. Work included 301 redirects and SEO consultation and implementation. Logo design for Foxy Rocket, LLC, app icon creation, and app user experience consultation were also part of the contract.

The following pages of the website maintain the overall look of the client's brand but the graphics are more specific to the apps in question: Volcano Updates and a washing machine timer.

Rose Adare

Rose Adare art site

Rose Adare contracted for website redesign, collateral management, consultation, and OpenCart implementation.

Adare's main request was simplicity with a touch of bling. She requested an elegant website with Web 2.0 tricks that would eventually be turned over to her for editing. This was also an exercise in balancing file size with image quality. Image quality remains the priority for this client.

Adare Opencart

A rotating slideshow, CSS rollovers, iframes, Lightbox, and calendar integration are implemented on the main website. The OpenCart shopping cart incorporates variations on Adare's branding and maintains the clean aesthetic she prefers. It was requested that the cart be set up and then turned over to the client for additions of descriptions, tags, and the like.

Designs were cemented in one of the best style guides (by 17FEET) I've ever seen. It was one of the most complete and more in depth projects I translated into validated code. Backwards compatibility was requested and delivered to IE7.

Marjorie Liu

Marjorie Liu home page

Website update for Marjorie Liu. Design by Ilsa Brink. The main website is intentionally designed to have a different look, feel, and user experience from the blog section of the website.

This project involved a complete recode and unification of Marjorie Liu's multiple existing blogs/websites into one WordPress site. HTML, CSS, PHP, and plugin modification were used.

Of my own accord, I made the website mobile-friendly. This required very few design modifications due to Ilsa Brink's excellent design.
