As a web designer and developer since 1996, I've created and updated web sites for a varied clientel. The web sites shown here highlight the design features and technologies I've used to create engaging and informative web sites. Every web site is a collaboration between designer and owner. I strive to create websites that reflect their owners and purpose, that are professional-looking, that are easy to read, and that are easy to navigate.
The Austin Samaritans website is powered by Vine Type with clear navigation and clean lines. The extensive footer shows several photos via Flickr integration.
This is no cookie-cutter real estate agent site. Bill Flood's elegant, upscale, classic website was designed to appeal to discerning and upscale real estate sellers and purchasers. Easy administrative features allow the client to maintain his own property inventory.
Bright and refreshing describes the feel of the website for Drs. Stafford and Hollander, Family Dentists. The office staff is outgoing and friendly -- and this is reflected in the site as well. Custom animation for before and after photos provides a unique and dramatic way to demonstrate current dental techniques. Powered by Vine Type.
The website of First Christian Presbyterian Church of Pryor, Oklahoma is relaxed and inviting, polished but welcoming. The home page imagery reinforces the church name and contains a sidebar to advertise important announcements and upcoming events. It also is powered by Vine Type.
The centerpiece of the Lost Creek Municipal Utility District website is the water awareness dashboard that presents a host of information in a clear and readable manner.
Presenting water stage, burn ban, weather stats, lake levels and other information is a receipe for a cluttered, busy look, but Vine Branches worked to make this information easy to read and understand. Built on HTML5 and CSS3 standards, the Lost Creek MUD website was designed with mobile friendliness in mind.
The interactive site even goes one step further -- allowing customers to customize the dashboard to display their home's specific watering schedule.
Custom fonts improve readability while enhancing the look and feel of the site. This MUD site is clean and shiny.
Vine Branches brought a high-tech makeover to the Metro Computer Resources website.
The rotating banner scrolls by itself (or the visitor) and presents major marketing messages front and center. The navigation buttons were given a custom glow effect that doesn't involve browser plug-ins or add-ons.
The clean & stylish design reinforces the brand as modern and dependable. Each page includes all the necessary information a potential would need: hours of operation, a map, and phone number for any additional questions.
Bold graphics reassure visitors that they are at a law firm site, that of Attorney Michael J Camera, based in Lorain, Ohio. Attorney Camera's site sets a professional tone and offers visitors additional information on legal rulings.
Swimming against the current of staid and stiff legal websites, the website of Michael D Doyle makes a bold and lasting impression on visitors. All the other legal sites -- filled with gavels and scales and marble columns -- look like flotsam and jetsam by comparison.
The site gets a boost of interactivity with its revolving carousel and in-page contact form.
My Vine Type website caught the attention of thousands of folks at Command-Shift-3 who voted it a monthly winner in 2008 and who continue to rank it among the all-time leaders out of more than 16,000 website submissions. This recognition is appreciated, but I am most focused on how my clients rate my work.
This website also caught the eye of the Expression Studio team at Microsoft. This lead to an invitation to have the Vine Type site featured in the Microsoft Expression Gallery.
Of course the Vine Type website itself is powered by Vine Type.
