A long-time client asked me to re-design his rather old Flash-based site. In addition to the complete re-design, much of the site’s content was updated, a new HTML5-based audio feature as well as e-commerce for digital sale and download the band’s music. Check it out! www.moudswing.com
I was asked to update an older WordPress-based website, www.nursingmothersalliance.org, recently. Here is what the site looked like before:
Initially based on the Cirrus theme for WordPress (which is a great base for a project like this), I customized the base theme’s design and typography, added some custom CSS to fix some issues, as well as some additional features.
I’m happy with how it turned out and the client is as well. This was a pro-bono project that I was happy to take on given the service that the Nursing Mothers Alliance provides to the community, free of charge. You can check out the new site here.
A personal project leveraging WordPress, where I blog about my experience injuring and dealing with chronic insertional achilles tendonitis. Includes social features as well as a microblog.
I was asked to re-design an existing site. Here is the before/after.
As you can see, it needed some work. Below is the proposed re-design. After considering the client’s needs, it was obvious that a static site (no Content Management System) would be the best solution.
Not shown is the bottom-third of the new design, which includes a 3-columned additional content area, as well as footer area. Most importantly, this new site is responsive and scales to ANY screen size.
Karkades.com is a custom social network with hundreds of users located all over the world and is growing rapidly.
The site has received lots of international press, and is particularly popular in Morocco. The owner of the site came to me with nothing more than a vision of what he wanted in a site. He had initially contracted another web designer to build out the site, but after repeated failed attempts and roadblocks, and after two other web development firms could not produce the site, I was asked to take it on.
Under the hood, Karkades.com is based on the Drupal CMS and makes extensive use of custom database views, and specialized modules including Organic Groups. I am the sole designer and developer of the entire site, from the logo design to the development and maintenance/administrative tasks. The site is based on the Corolla theme but with extensive CSS customizations.
