Here’s a sample of her handiwork:
Londa Bead wanted to expand her offering from her original foodiebracelets.com line of jewelry. Featured at Miami's Art Basel, she wanted a website that spoke to the artistic nature of her work and allowed for future growth as her brand changes. A mix of elegant and fun, this Wordpress site needed to be very visual and function as an easy-to-manage online shop. Each collection is accessible from the home page and there's plenty of room to grow. The eCommerce solution has lots of features. We can't wait to see what Londa Bead will create next!
Wordpress website to replace a traditional HTML site and to bring in an existing blog which was residing on Blogger. Bringing the blog onto the same domain was important for SEO but more importantly for community building. This popular insurance blog was driving traffic to a website that Management Recruiters of Fairfax doesn't own. The job listings on this site are fed through an outside database and we built an HTML wrapper to skin that page to match the rest of the site. It was a great project and stretched our programming skills. We ended up with a modern site that communicates a strong brand.
Wordpress website built from the ground up for a computer consulting/recruitment company that mostly works with Federal contracts. The focus was to move from a full HTML website that was built on tables and images. A chore to edit and maintain without having a dedicated webmaster who knows how to code. With Wordpress, the office staff can update the site. Another requirement was to have an onboard job board to display open job listings. Of course, we used the Genesis framework for SEO and security.
WordPress website for a Charlotte, NC accounting firm. The focus was to highlight the expertise of Matthew Andersen. The client also needed an easy to update site where the team can continue to add great content as they work on their marketing strategy with Duct Tape Marketing Consultant, Paul Davis of Next Step Marketing.
Built on the Genesis framework for its flexibility to showcase current content and for easy changes in the future.
WordPress website built for a local machine shop in Coral Springs, Florida. Photos of finished parts and using Computer Aided Design were the focus.
Built using the Genesis framework for security and ease of updates and changes to the child theme in the future.
WordPress website for a chiropractic physician in Miramar, Florida. Content and education are the focus of this site as Dr. Jill prides herself on treating patients with an approach to total health and overall wellness.
Blog feature is the main focus to deliver health education and awareness to patients.
Inception Micro Angel Fund group in Charlotte, North Carolina needed a refresh of their HTML website. We rebuilt the site onto the WordPress Platform including a dynamic event calendar and online forms.
The goal was to keep it clean and have a place to highlight the group’s current projects.
Next Generation Charter School opened in the 2012-13 school year. We built a basic WordPress site that staff could easily update and use to communicate with parents. We used a Google Calendar to post events, deadlines and academic calendar dates.
Website for local childrens’ fitness and resort camp business based in Miami, FL and Aspen, CO. The goal was to create an online brochure site with some examples of their additional services such as theme parties and customized private camps for resorts.
Website built on the Weebly platform for its super simple Content Management System with built-in plug-ins. The client was not comfortable using WordPress and wanted a cost-effective alternative. Heavy use of Wufoo forms for event registration and the award application process for easy notification and management of hundreds of records.
Niche website for a marketing program on the Weebly platform. Goal was to build a small site that needed very little maintenance as a secondary site to the consultants’ main websites.
Local Chamber website built using on-board tools in Chamber Management Software. Client needed it on this platform for dynamic updates fed into it by the chamber’s membership and calendar database. Our main contribution was to create custom graphics and reorganize the content. Chamber volunteers currently manage this site.
HTML Website built for the City of Aventura’s theatre. Originally designed in Photoshop and then brought into Dreamweaver. The site has since been ported to a propietary Content Management System that is part of their online ticketing system. However, the header images and navigation and basic design remain the same as the site I originally built in 2010.
City of Aventura local government website redesign in HTML. This website has since been ported over to a municipal Content Management System in 2012 so that staff can update their own pages. This is a screenshot of the site from 2011.
My job in 2003 was to take the original static website and add more interactive features for communicating with the citizens. We added a search feature, rss for social media, calendars and integrated customer service features, such as document research, MyAventura (work requests) and ePermits (online building permits) which are still in use today.
As we entered into social media, mostly on Twitter we received recognition from juggle.com as a Top Government Website for our efforts to bring more transparency to online government.
