Fully Hand Coded Website

The Dandelion is a website that was completely coded by hand using media queries for breaking points and implements JavaScript. This project was taken from the very beginning stages with wireframes and a moodboard all the way to completion.

Some of the goals for the site were to bring the history of The Dandelion Fine Dining restaurant to life with images and a bit about how the restaurant got started. I wanted to keep usability and accessibility at the forefront as this is one of the most important pieces about web design.

PHP and MySQL

The Last Course is a website built using Skeleton, a simple, lightweight responsive boilerplate. This project was built with mobile in mind. The site was built first on localhost using MAMP and a custom CMS and a database to remain confident that the content management system will continue to work.

I wanted to include a search bar so customers can easily search for their favorite dessert. Bold colors along with strong images keep the viewer drooling for more.

Custom WordPress Theme

A Hound 2 Hold was a personal project created out of my love for animals. This website was made using WordPress, an open source software, which gave me the freedom to build what I wanted with a customizable design. This makes it accessible and easy for the client to update.

One of the goals was to bring forms to the site to make it easy for the user to get what they were looking for.

I started with wireframes, mockups, and basic HTML5 and CSS3 before moving everything into WordPress using posts and pages.

Product Packaging

Starting from pencil sketches and taken all the way to art direction at a photo shoot, this project is definitely one of my favorites. Mrs. Kelly's Tea has a brand new look.

Using WordPress and Woocommerce are just a few of the exciting things done with the company's new website. Strong imagery and usability were just a couple of the focal points. The company was also looking to incorporate bold colors and a unique new look.

Magazine Publication

Unveil is a unique addiction magazine created for those that just don't understand it. This is a magazine containing the honest grit about how hard it is to quit and what it feels like to be an addict in society.

Creating visual interest with strong imagery, typography, and stories that keep the audience coming back for more was of central importance. The magazine demonstrates industry standards with advertisement and a jump page.
