Creative Die Mold Corp.I designed and developed this site for a tool and die shop in Chicagoland. I also upgraded their branding with a custom logo. Working closely with a professional photographer, this photo-driven site seeks to explain the capabilities of the company, with images. Visit their site to see for yourself.
Chicago-based photographer Chris Carrollo needed a site to show off his extensive portfolio. The resulting design is driven primarily by the images themselves, with little distraction. This site is fully Responsive for tablets and mobile devices, and Retina ready for high-definition screens. Check out his portfolio.
Shriver CenterI completely redesigned and upgraded PovertyLaw.org, the website of the Sargent Shriver National Center on Poverty Law. This site contains thousands of documents going back 50 years. The site was developed originally in Drupal 6 and I overhauled it to run on Drupal 8. Visit the site and see the results in action.
Montenegro ToursThis site encompasses a number of rental villas in Montenegro, with multiple domains mapped to one site. The header and landing page change based on the domain. I did all the design, as well as the implementation. This site features a wealth of information on Montenegro and an integrated booking system that connects to PayPal. Take a look for yourself.
Poverty ScorecardI developed this site for the Sargeant Shriver National Center on Poverty Law. Built on the Drupal platform, It uses a highly customized Google Maps API, and draws heavily from an external data portal, drawing in data on Congress and on congressional legislation, and ranking each congressperson on their efforts to combat poverty.
El Gallo Bravo #5
This site is basically an interactive menu system for a Mexican restaurant. You place your order from the menu on the left and your selections update the ticket on the right, which calculates the total automatically.
I designed the logo, took all the photos, designed and coded the site. Since its launch, the website has generated nearly a thousand orders. Try a demo to see the site in action.
Davidson & Schiller, LLCThis law firm asked me to create an information portal that they could update, providing relevant, timely information pertaining to immigration and immigration law. Using Wordpress, I developed a site that serves a both a brochure for the firm and a library of information for the public. This site uses an elastic layout, meaning that the page adjusts itself to fit the screen size of different users. It is also designed to be highly print friendly.
Stone Soup CooperativeStone Soup is a housing cooperative with three houses, so the site I built for them is actually a network of sites, with over 40 users. The site features a complex content management system, with each house having its own jurisdiction over the content on its site. This project also includes development of Stone Soup's social media presence, employing RSS syndication and networks like Facebook and Twitter to promote the Co-op and communicate with the larger community. In addition to design and development, I also did most of the photography for the site. The new site has proven an indispensable outreach tool for the co-op. Since its launch, Stone Soup received over 5 times as many applications as it did previously.
This online business journal approached me to design an eMail newsletter that would look good on multiple platforms.
For security reasons, most eMail clients prevent images from downloading by default. For this reason, I created a template that would display well, with or without images. The template includes a header, a bar graph and even advertisements styled entirely in CSS. View the demo to see the newsletter with or without images.
Those are a few of my newer projects. You can also if you’d like.
US Labor Education in the Americas Project
USLEAP already had a site but felt that they needed to revamp the design. I designed a static front-end and then integrated it into a Drupal framework.
The live site is USLEAP.org but it has changed since I designed it. You can view my original implementation on this site.
Save Cook County Health Services
SaveCookCounty.org was designed as a call-to-action for county residents to demand better health care for low-income citizens. This one-page design met the needs for time and budget.
The site came down at the end of the campaign but you can still view the mirror.
Long and Silverman Publishing
Long and Silverman publish self-help and productivity books for business people.
You can see this site by visiting lsPub.com.
The Design CanI designed and developed this site for an industrial design partnership, based in Brooklyn. Now defunct, a mirror of the site can be found here.
Chicago DJ Summit
The oldest site in my portfolio, the Chicago DJ summit happened back in 2000. This site uses a series of custom technical illustrations in the design. The mirror is available here on my site, but be forewarned that it contains auto-playing audio (it was built before this was universally discouraged). This site also required Flash.
This pick-like item, called a 'plectrum', changes the sound of whatever. I employed flash animation and illustration to advertise the product. You can view a mirror of the original site here at MPN.co.
