Vine Branches


As a web designer and developer since 1996, I've created and updated web sites for a varied clientele. 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.

Michael D Doyle, Attorney at Law

Swimming against the current of staid and stiff legal websites, the website of Michael D Doyle makes a bold and lasting impression on visitors.

The site sports third-party blog integration and in-page contact form.

Vine Type

My Vine Type website caught the attention of thousands of folks at Command-Shift-3 who voted it a monthly winner in 2008 and continued to rank it among the all-time leaders out of more than 16,000 website submissions.

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.

David J Berta, Attorney at Law

David J Berta's website highlights his experience from the bench and a darker theme reminiscent of a stately courtroom setting. Carefully curated stock photos and mobile-friendly features abound.

Central Texas Therapy Clinic

Playing off of Central Texas Therapy Clinic's whimsical logo, a friendly bespeckled longhorn, Vine Branches created a site to spotlight not only the full-service consulting practice but also the Irlen Syndrome therapies and training available at this site.

Michael J Camera, esq

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.

Your website should reflect your business expertise. A cluttered page with a dozen things begging for attention can distract your visitors from the important messages you want to make.

My clients and I work together to create a pleasant website to view, but more importantly, one that focuses visitor attention on your company's products and services.

Building a web presence is a collaborative effort, but don't worry, I'm easy to work with. Feel free to contact me to discuss your website plans.


Success Stories.

It feels great when a good website comes together. My clients' sites are unique creations, crafted with care and precision. Because I work with the client needs in mind, each website design tells a story.

Vine Branches wants to make the website a reflection of the business it represents. Every website has a unique experience and personality. Each, you could say, is a story itself...

The Paper Chase.

Guiding students through middle school and high school successfully is a tough job in itself. Parents and students, however, can find themselves unprepared for university life if they don't plan ahead. Middlebridge Educational Consulting provides several workshops and consulting opportunities to demystify the university application process and set students up for success in their post-secondary educational aspirations.

The Middlebridge Educational Consulting website speaks to these concerns in a modern, easy-to-read way. Casual faces provide reassurance that university degree aspirations are best met by proper preparation and focused attention.

An animated logo provides a reassuring welcome along with large, friendly imagery and dashes of animation. The welcoming feel pervades the site to spotlight not only the accomplishments of the consulting practice, but also the accolades received from grateful students.

A River Runs Through It.

The Lost Creek Limited District sought to present timely information on several different water-related issues. Lake Levels, burn ban status, oak wilt status, and up-to-the-minute weather information were all mentioned as important indicators to the local residents.

Vine Branches tackled the complexity with custom programming to gather information from several sources, then present that information as a water awareness dashboard. The dashboard is simple to digest, yet presents a myriad of informational tidbits collected from several different sources. The large dashboard lettering focuses the visitor's on the information while surrounding text support and enhance the meaning.

The resulting home page sends a clear message that water is important and that the Lost Creek Limited District is focused on serving its residents.


Law firm and attorney sites are awash in a sea of gavels, scales, and marble columns. The last thing my Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Attorney in Elyria, Ohio client wanted was to have his site blend in. Working with Michael D Doyle, we agreed on a striking image and tagline that makes a memorable impression on its visitors while casting an sense of confidence over his practice.

This design tears the competition to shreds and casts them aside as mere internet flotsam and jetsam. Visitors will get a clear sense of strength and confidence that a OVI DUI DWI Attorney should present.

Not just another pretty face, M D Doyle's site is enhanced with prominent calls to action, a rotating carousel, and an on-page contact form that allows potential clients to contact Elyria Bankruptcy Attorney Doyle without the need of an email program.

Triumph of the Nerds.

Let's face it, a computer isn't the kind of product that causes one's pulse to race. That doesn't mean a computer retailer has to have a boring website. In fact, a solid modern website is just what suits the folks at Metro Computer Resources. They were selling, installing, repairing, and maintaining computers before we even had something called the internet.

Carl Innocenti and staff have been helping doctors, lawyers, and medium-sized businesses for over two decades. Their clientele is built from their reputation for quality products and services at fair prices.

Vine Branches presents that quality reputation in a contemporary fashion -- with modern and polished graphics, interactive banner, and custom glow-over navigation. Because, hey, we nerds like to have fun too.
