Another project that I enjoyed doing a lot. I think that the biggest reason, once again, was because I got the designs from them and was tasked to buidling it out into a theme. The design is awesome. I love the colors, and love how it came together. The part that I really enjoyed doing (mainly because it forced me to use some jQuery) was the Media Resource page. It's a pretty cool page, so make sure to check it out. It was fun to see it all come together and be interactive. Since launching the site we are now in the process of converting it several different languages to reach all the corners of the earth. They're doing some really great things with flash storage!
LingerLoop.com was a larger project than my normal freelance projects I take on, but it was fun to see the end product. The site is essentially very similar to a lot of the group-coupon sites but is geared more towards singles. Each product entered on the site can have a threshold that must be met before the event actually happens. There can also be a maximum date set so that the good deals don't get overused. All of these things are dependent on how the business wants their event handled. It's integrated with a payment gateway that once the threshold is met the credit cards for those customers will be charged. Fun stuff! Be sure and go check it out by clicking the link below.
This was a very straightforward site that was very well prepared when it was handed off to me. The designs were beautiful, and thought through so well that when it came time to create the theme it went together seemlessly. I enjoyed this site for that very reason. As shown in the second screenshot there were some tabs integrated into the site using some jQuery (which I am growing to LOVE). Aside from what is shown in the screenshots the site is multi-lingual and, once the translations are complete, will be available in multiple languages. It was a very fun site to put together!
Jensen Group Real Estate has been really the only real estate agent that my wife and I have ever had. They helped us buy our home in Layton and then we turned around and sold it a few years later. They've also worked with us a number of times to answer questions and help resolve other issues. I would recommend them over anyone in a heart beat!
The Jensen Group needed a website to serve a few purposes: (1) share information about the group, (2) allow them to have people sign-up for upcoming workshops and seminars on their website, and (3) allow their clients to browse the MLS through their website. I'll go ahead and touch on each of those briefly.
Teresa Collins is a well known designer known for her chic designs both in scrapbooking and in life in-general. She came to me as a reference from a past employer of mine and was interested in a brand new "manageable" website for her products. Her site that she had was built on some sort of ASP.NET Shopping Cart solution that had used for a few years that was difficult to manage and a little out of control.
She came to me wanting a simple and organized site that she, and a few of her employees, could have access to manage. She wanted the basic business pages, newsletter sign-up, products section, and a wholesale section that would require wholesalers to request an account to gain access to forms and excel files.
Dr. Hickman came to me wanting to create a site with information for his patients. It was a long process to gather up all of the content and prepare it for display on the web. Dr. Hickman's situation was unique too because he wanted to supply streaming video clips to clients that explain different procedures that he would perform for patients. The site came together quickly, and turned out really nice.
This was a website created for my currently employer showcasing one of our programs. As a college we are trying to take a step forward towards providing a central location (website) that provides nationwide information about the Composites Industry.
I was hired at the Davis Applied Technology College in August of 2007 with a sole purpose in building them a brand new website that worked. Their site, at the time, was running on an old version of DotNetNuke that had been customized to a point where it couldn't be upgraded. That wasn't the only thing bad about it, the content hadn't been managed on it for years in some cases. Onto the case study:
I started with a theme called "Tech" for the new website. I've always been a fan of starting with something and going off of it even if it ends up being completely different.
My wife used to work for an Orthopaedic Surgeon and she always told me how hideous their website was. I had looked at it a few times and never really thought much about it other than that it was terrible. It was a "flash-based" site that moved a little too much and was IMPOSSIBLE to update. The "web guy" that they had wasn't very responsive when it came to changes on the site so the content was really outdated. The office manager contacted my wife and told her that they wanted me to jump in and do the site for them. After a brief meeting to make sure that I was capable to do what she wanted the project was underway. She told me that I was the 10th web designer that she had tried to get to build them a new website. I was determined not to let her down.
The dentist of Flynn Dentistry in Kaysville Utah came to me with a few questions. He had pre-built a website for his Dental Practice using Apple's amazing Website Creation Tool, iWeb. He had just uploaded the HTML files and then started thinking about how to get more exposure on the web. My advise was to either go with the HTML pages from iWeb or else go for a full-blown Content Management System in Drupal. Drupal is a very Search Engine Friendly (SEO) system that speaks clearly to Google making it a lot easier to become noticed. That's exactly what I did. We also went to the extent of adding a sweet "Special Offers" page that has a link to a print-ready version that you can print and bring into the office.
