UNC Alternative Investments Conference
The Alternative Investments Conference needed a website that would be simple to re-brand on an annual basis, and manageable for the student volunteer in charge of the site, who also changes annually. We confined the branding to the home page, header and sidebar so each year’s changes would be minimal. Amanda Slatter designed the site, and I built it in WordPress using a variety of custom post types and fields to make it self-explanatory for the annually changing site owner.
Carolina Mammography Registry
I created this custom theme in WordPress for the Carolina Mammography Registry based on the design of Alyssa Stepien. It includes 4 custom post types and a handful of custom fields.
2013 Holiday Greeting
Every year UNC Creative creates a digital holiday greeting for the Chancellor of UNC-Chapel Hill. Our final concept for 2013 depicts campus life during the holidays using cinemagraphs. In addition to participating in all meetings and working on one of the shoots, I built the site using a combination of HTML, CSS and jQuery. I used Picturefill.js to deliver images optimized for 4 different device sizes. Alyssa Stepien designed the site, and Jarod Sutphin created the cinemagraphs.
As Chancellor Thorp was leaving, and Chancellor Folt was on her way in, we were tasked with creating a new UNC Chancellor’s site. I developed this responsive site using Sass, and Jarod Sutphin created the lovely design.
I was one of four people who handled the development for the UNC Global site. Chris Johnson established the design, html, and css. I moved his work into WordPress, contributing to the front-end development when the need arose, and worked closely with the client to establish user inputs, and the corresponding html, css and php for many different types of content. I wrote some of the php, but the bulk of that was handled by Scott Reston. Charles Mangin also had a hand in some of the front and back-end development. We used Sass for this project.
Beyond the Basics
For this site, a collaboration between the UNC Institute for the Environment and FEMA, I designed and developed a custom WordPress theme. The client basically wanted to put the existing print FEMA Mitigation Guide online, which I did using a detailed sidebar navigation (based on the work of Scott Reston), and a top navigation allowing readers access to the previous and next pages.
With three locations and specials that change daily, in addition to a design update RuckerJohns needed an easy way for each of their busy managers to update the daily specials. With the help of my colleague Jim Campbell, we set-up a neat edit-in-place system that the managers use everyday. Site design by the talented Yellow Dog Creative.
Blood, Sweat & Cheers
Blood, Sweat & Cheers needed a website and brand redesign to reinforce their get-out-and-play attitude. They had a new logo and a specific vision for the design, so I collaborated with their staff on a design that serves as a fun backdrop for their witty copy.
Sympathy for the Deli
I was honored to create the logo and website for Jonathan Richelson’s Sympathy for the Deli. I was both designer and front-end developer, creating a custom theme using WordPress. This site has plenty of room to expand to accommodate future business growth.
Theron McCollough Painting
I designed and built this colorful custom theme for local painter Theron McCollough using WordPress as the Content Management System.
Safari 101 Book
I designed and built this site for Efland, NC author David L. Brown to accompany his book, Safari 101. I used WordPress as the content management system, and built a custom design that makes use of the Thesis framework.
Carr Mill Mall
Local designer White Space Graphic Design designed this lovely and functional site. I handled the front-end development with the help of the Thesis Framework.
Durham Nativity School
Durhamnativity.org was in need of a content reorganization, design update, and an easy way for the administrators to add content to the site. I created the new design and content organization scheme, edited and added to the copy, built a new template for WordPress using the Thesis framework, and guided the new Social Networking strategy.
I worked as part of a 5-person team to build this e-commerce site for start-up children’s clothing designer, Fleming Clothing. The site was built using the open source Magento E-Commerce platform. I was responsible for the project management, graphic design and front-end development. The lovely illustrations and photos are credited to Cheryl Orsini and Gretchen Mathison respectively.
