Contract

For the Past months I have been extremely busy, in a very good way.

I have learned a lot and had great fun while working for Empathy lab in Conshohocken.

Fearnet is one of the two projects which I was working on. I came rather late in to this project and I was contracted as an xHtml/Css coder/developer.

Sprout net was the next project in which I was a member of the development team. With this project I was able to be in from start to end which was both educational and great fun.

Dance Arts

Dance Arts is a newly opened studio in Ardmore I had the opportunity to make both the web page and logo type along with some print material needed. The logo type is made to meet the taste of young ballerinas as well as teen hip hop dancers. This has been a very fun project that I am very happy to be involved in. The page features a text pattern blog under the news tab.

The color theme was what ruled both layout and photo choice as I wanted something soft yet not to girlish to meet the different groups of dancers it had to be a easy and clear navigation for stressed parents

This site was set up to feature the belly dancer Adalia, as well as being a tribute to belly dancing itself. In order to show this relationship, it was our thinking that the photos of Adalia in action, would be the prime focus, with the text being woven in, to best advantage.

Adalia had the photos taken by a well known, professional belly dance photographer, and I think you will agree that the results were well worth the fee. The photos were very pleasing for me to work with. I selected some of the best to create a collage effect for the top image and from that sprang the overall color theme.

Adalia's page has features like a blog and a photo gallery with DOM scripting.

Global Workers Justice Alliance

This page started as most of my pages do, with just a color theme. In this case, from the idea of a global effort I wanted a serene look, one that would suggest unity and cooperation. Because the site was designed with the idea of containing a lot of text, I wanted to continue the earthy colors, brought forth in the top image, throughout the site with the text itself setting the major contrast.

The page was created around the logotype, allowing it to be easily expanded by simply adding pages and links to the menu. This site features an integral blog as well as using a Document Object Model (DOM) script for a drop down in the menu. The page is built on clean and lean CSS, using few images and yet conveying a strong layout.

A high tech company with a clear vision of what they wanted the page to look and feel like. My involvement in this project was mostly in the photo manipulation needed in creating the flash movie and the assembly and production of the flash object itself along with positioning it on the pages.

This one was a little different. I got a call from James on a Friday afternoon, asking how booked up I was for the weekend, and if I'd be interested in helping to get a website up by Monday. I had been wanting a chance to work with his company, Emerald Coast Entrepreneur, for some time, and without a second though said "sure, what would you like me to do?"

After a few minutes of him setting the requirements and us agreeing on a price, we began a collaborative design session which, though it lasted most of the weekend, was flexible enough to give me time to take care of a few previous obligations and spend some time with the girls. He told me right off that he would be on his computer all through the weekend and to contact him with any questions whenever it was convenient for me.

It amazed me how much we accomplished in such a short time by being open and cooperating on everything. I even did the final clean up and validation on the code, much to James' relief, as by that time he was at the '2 days without sleep' stage and not much caring to proof code all afternoon. Although the color scheme was dictated by a pre-existing blog and we had discussed the general idea a few times, the actual design layout, graphics, copywriting, page coding, even the menu design were accomplished in just over 48 hours.
