All Falls Down
Another project working with Shawn Hazen from Hazen Creative, this time with a website marketing author Isaac Perry's book release. Isaac and Shawn chose to use the GoodBarry platform to host the site and provide content management and shopping cart services. I think the end result - a beautiful, clean site which is easy for the client to update - was worth the effort.
AFAR Magazine is a new travel-focused magazine launching in 2009. They needed an informational website up quickly in order to create interest in the industry, connect with advertisers, and give potential subscribers a glimpse at the magazine. I created the templates (XHTML/CSS) for each page from the original Photoshop layouts by Kim Heilman, and worked with the team's programmer, Nikki Woelk, to integrate the templates into the Drupal content management system.
Sweet Peas & Stilettos
The Swell Season
When The Swell Season's song "Falling Slowly" won the 2008 Oscar for Best Original Song, they suddenly needed a better way to connect with their followers and the general public than just pointing to their MySpace page. Their new website, designed by Lisa Hazen and Shawn Hazen, allows current fans to follow the band while providing new visitors with streaming music and photos to interest them in the duo. The website uses the WordPress publishing platform, so band members and management can easily update tour information, website content and news articles from the road.
Beth Martin Quittman's lecture agency started with just a handful of clients. Her website needed to be flexible enough to scale as her speaker roster grew, while still allowing certain speakers to be featured throughout the site, and enabling notification of upcoming events. Each speaker has a page dedicated to their biography, with quotes about the speaker and their work(s), and includes various multimedia presentations such as movies or slideshows. I created a design that represented her company's image, and built out the site from that design.
Earthen Feast (Alyssa Cox)
When personal chef Alyssa Cox started marketing her catering services, she realized that many potential customers, especially in the San Francisco Bay Area, were doing their research online before contacting caterers. In order to build her business, she needed a website that would capture the imaginations (and appetites!) of customers looking for delicious, healthy food. I designed and built the site, which helps future catering customers get a feel for Alyssa's cooking by spotlighting photos and recipes for her great dishes.
