My sites all look different because my clients are all different.
First thing, we pin down what the site is supposed to do, and who will be the audience.
Next, we plan out the site in detail. And plan how interactions will work. At this point we have a pretty good handle on what the project IS, in terms of scope.
Then comes look and feel, colors, fonts, and all that fun stuff.
Then we go ahead and build it, sometimes working with a partner who does the back end programming.
A site in Wordpress for a non-profit group that works to protect and enhance a rare piece of open space inside the Rt 95 beltway near Boston. The site uses a number of Wordpress plugins to create flexible multi-use blogs, galleries, and forms.
A responsive site for a high-tech training firm. Twin Peaks trains programmers to be experts with Alpha Anywhere, a leading platform for developing mobile applications. (I also created the video seen lower down on the home page.) Learn more about my extensive work with Twin Peaks. Built with Drupal by Redfin Solutions.
A dedicated group of cyclists has come together with the goal of creating a world-class year-round cycling center in New England. I worked with them to target their key audiences and place prominent targets for each group on the home page, each of which leads to further targeted content.
A colorful site for anyone looking for food, lodging, and the myriad things to do on Boston's historic north shore. Makes use of powerful sorting and filtering tools so you can find what you want. Integrated with Google mapping. Built with Drupal by Redfin Solutions.
A minimalist site for a Cape Cod architect with a devoted following. The homepage slideshow features quotes from clients including John Stossel and Andre Gregory.
Edith writes both wonderful short stories and assorted articles for local and national periodicals. While working on this website I read her short story collections and became a big fan of her work. Her characters and stories have stayed vivid in my memory.
Ruth Neeman designs award-winning sets for professional and community theatre. This responsive site features all of her projects dating back to 1991. It uses a sortable table to allow site visitors to rearrange how the plays are listed.
This is the primary outreach website for Dr. Ross Greene, the pioneer in the behavior of what came to be called "explosive children." He wrote an influential book by that name. His model for dealing with children is changing the lives of children, parents, and teachers world-wide. Built with Drupal by Redfin Solutions.
This is one of a number of websites I have built for Dr. Greene (more about my work with him.)
A responsive site for a consulting firm that teaches people and organizations to "Become deliberate creative thinkers and become a more creative organization." We wanted a design that suggests the creativity that founder Anne Manning and her colleagues bring forth, but not a site so edgy and challenging that visitors would not know how to navigate.
Jonathan Pond is a well-known figure as a financial advisor on public television. He has also been given a number of important awards for his work, including an Emmy and a Malcolm Forbes Public Awareness Award.
This is one of a number of websites I have built for Jonathan Pond, along with the design of flyers and books. Read more about the range of work I handle for Jonathan Pond.
The Diocese includes 185 parishes in eastern Massachusetts, with 68,000 parishioners. The Diocese supports ministries on campuses and in Africa, as well as special programs for urban residents and green initiatives for parishes.
Nancy Schön is the sculptor who did the famous ducklings in the Boston Public Garden, as well as scores of other public sculptures. The site works as her online gallery, with a special video "jukebox" where you can watch all the videos she had created as part of her Aesop's Fables sculpture series. See what Nancy says about working with me.
This is one of those remarkable, unforgettable local treasures that make smaller cities worth visiting. Located in Danville, Kentucky, this museum contains hundreds of dollhouses, all arranged in neighborhoods, populated with little people with fascinating stories. I also did the videos for this site, which you can see sprinkled through the pages. More about my work with the Museum.
