Catskill Brewery

http://catskillbrewery.com/

Custom Wordpress website for a craft brewery. A key requirement was a full-screen (on all devices) home page illustration with the global navigation in a bar across the bottom of the page. The client provided the illustration and I edited it to allow for vertical extension so that it would fill the screen for the aspect ratio of large monitors and portrait view tablets alike.

I built custom features for the backend (editor) so that the client can add events and also locations and have them display on the frontend (the website) showing specific information in a particular format. To add/edit/delete the client logs in to the Wordpress backend and edits the list in the events or locations section and saves. The results publish automatically on the website.

The client provided some excellent photography, of both the brewery and product shots. We used a parallax effect to show off the great imagery.

This is a one-page site and it includes an embedded, customized Google Map for directions/location.

JC Social Marketing

http://jcsocialmarketing.com/

Julia Campbell runs a consultancy that helps non-profits get the most out of their online efforts. Julia already had a Wordpress website but the look and feel did not reflect the quality of her services.

We selected a premium Wordpress theme that gave us most of the functionality we wanted, then set about customizing it to meet her requirements. The home page contains and links to brochure-like descriptions of her offerings and the blog section is updated frequently by Julia herself via the Wordpress editor.

Ipswich River Watershed Association

ipswichriver.org

A new look for the Ipswich River Watershed Association. The team there was already using Wordpress with success so I designed and developed a new theme for them to update the presentation of key info, calls to action, their blogs and numerous pages of content.

This new theme is responsive which is standard operating procedure at GWD. It being responsive just means that the site adapts the layout and everything works regardless of whether you are on a phone, tablet, laptop or desktop.

Together we revamped the information architecture, organizing the information to make the site easier to navigate and use.

Another standard operating procedure here is to install best of breed plugins. There are thousands of plugins out there and many are buggy, bloated and unreliable. Every website I make benefits from top notch plugins for: security, backup, caching, forms, shortcodes, lossless image compression etc. Of these the most crucial plugins are for security and backup. There are many, many attacks on Wordpress sites these days (because of it's popularity) and you can't be too careful.

Kristal Pooler & Associates

www.kristalpooler.com

The main challenge on this project was integrating MLS listings into this real estate web site. We spent a lot of time upfront researching wordpress plugins and other solutions before selecting IDX Broker as a service. Using their premium wordpress plugin we were able to include basic and advanced MLS searches with lead generation, by-town and by-category live listings results pages and mapped listings as well as other features.

The website is responsive which should hopefully help house hunters touring the area and we've tried hard to optimize the content so that it will rank highly against the competition.

The clients are able to log in to the backend of the website and upload new listings, create image slideshows and edit pages and blog posts.

Communications Ink

www.communications-ink.net

One of the first Wordpress sites I built was for local marketing agency Communications Ink. I recently upgraded the Wordpress site with a new customized theme that is also responsive (resizes dynamically according to the device a viewer is using - desktop, tablet, mobile etc.).

The client can select work to feature on the homepage and categorize the work that is presented on the portfolio page. There's a nice ajaxed animation that filters the work by category on the portfolio page. The theme also includes blog styling, a slider, contact form and social media integration.
