While working as a full-time freelancer from August 2013 until February 2017, I regularly did work for Creative MMS—a web design and marketing agency based in Philadelphia, PA. Over those couple years I worked on many different websites, custom WordPress themes, and features. Much of the work was tied in with WordPress or PHP-based websites. Here is a sampling of the projects that I worked on.
Better Website Report is a dedicated service I am offering. It is for people who want honest feedback and suggestions for their website, from web development professionals. Whether looking to make a list of needed improvements, shopping for a redesign, or trying to find any problems that have been missed, we write up a personalized report outlining what needs work. The report is a general look at many categories, including design, functionality, messaging, SEO, and technical issues.
The NYC-based Putnam & Putnam designs striking floral arrangements and installations that are beyond compare. They’ve done work for high profile clients such as Vogue, Dior, Samsung, and The Smithsonian. For this project I worked with Hurst Creative, to make their image-focused design a reality, with a functioning e-commerce side.
YourFitWorld is a blog that advocates a healthy lifestyle. Karianne shares nutritious recipes and tips on anything related to staying fit. Her site was already in WordPress, but it was not taking advantage of her high-res photography, and needed more consistent branding. It is a fully responsive WordPress theme, meaning that it adapts to various screen sizes; tablets, phones, etc.
Fantasy Insult Generator is free and available for Android. It’s a fun little app that generates ridiculous insults, that are a mix between Shakespearean, personal creations, and fantasy-specific words and phrases. This is my second published app, in collaboration with Ixie Studios, that’s geared towards gaming and RPGs.
This mobile app was created with PhoneGap and jQuery Mobile, and is currently available for Android and iOS. It is the result of a collaboration with my friends at Ixie Studios. In the RPG tabletop gaming niche, we saw an opportunity to create a tool that would be helpful in the process of creating unique characters.
In 2012, I built the original Shopify theme for the London-based men’s leather goods company, Troubadour. They create some outstanding luxury bags that are classy, minimal, and made with the highest quality materials. The new design is complete upgrade and a new build (new code), while it maintains similar aesthetics and typography that are part of the brand. The home page and product page in particular received a new look.
HotSauceFever is a personal project to create a definitive reference list of hot sauces, that anyone can rate and review. The idea was born when I started looking for a site like this, expecting that it already existed, as it does for beer and wine. When I didn’t find anything, I decided to make it happen, with the help of designer Danny Day. I ended up choosing the Yii PHP Framework, seeing that it was gaining a lot of traction lately, and was a useful learning tool for a proper MVC structure. The is a fully responsive fluid-width site…
Troubadour is a men’s luxury leather goods company based out of London. They are dedicated to an incredible level of quality, and advocate the stories and talent of the craftsmen/women that have made their products what they are. I was tasked with creating a custom Shopify theme that is consistent with their brand and its attention to detail.
Talent Point Consulting is a recruiting / talent acquisition firm based out of Philadelpha, PA, run by Meredith Toole. This is a brand new site for her business, with a clean and professional look. It was designed by my friend Alex DiSebastian, and developed as a WordPress theme that is completely editable through theme options, WordPress menus, and plugins.
Nick is a bluegrass guitar player based out of Boston, who has ditched his MySpace page in favor of a custom WordPress site. This custom theme was developed for modern browsers and gives him full ability to update all his menus, content, and sidebars.
