Karina's Hair Salon Site

Karina's Salon was due for a redesign and SEO strategy that would enhance their web presence. Located in one of Richmond's most popular and historic areas - Carytown, Karina's online image needed to better reflect their business.

Technologies used are a mix of hand-coded HTML/CSS and PHP, with some jQuery scripting thrown in. Photos were taken with a Nikon D300 and various lenses, editing in Photoshop and Lightroom.

Riggs & Company

Riggs & Company Investment Site

This site was built to establish an online presence for Riggs & Company, an investment management and financial planner in Petersburg, Va.

I used the Wordpress platform to build upon, giving the site owner full control over updating content, posting events, etc... For these types of CMS projects, I begin with a completely blank slate theme and build it up from my design. This gives me unlimited freedom with the creative aspect, and I don't have to be restricted by an off-the-shelf template design (yuck!).

This site also features Google Calendar integration for event announcements.

This project was a redesign for the Private Stock Cigar & Wine Co. Using Wordpress for the back-end framework, I created a custom theme and adapted the framework to use it. The site will allow for plenty of room to expand, with a possible eCommerce component added later.

Banner Ads

Banner ads and more banner ads!

Lots of recent banner ad programming jobs, all shapes and sizes, with some nice designs by the folks at Elevation and myself.

Most of these get served up in the Google ad system, among others, using clickTAGs to track penetration and clicks, etc... An effective way to advertise your business and get some ad space on the major sites.

With the popularity of internet news sources and social sites, the cost of a banner ad campaign can really make sense these days versus a traditional print campaign.

Hutch Shopping Cart

Hutch Hi-Performance BMX

This was a cool project to work on for a few reasons. For one, this is the company that sponsored me when I raced BMX bikes way back when. The company was recently revived and is back on the scene, with a new life and lots of enthusiasm for the sport. I'm glad to see the company is in good hands!

The site was built using PHP/MySQL, Flash, Javascript, and some other nifty details. I created an admin section so the owner can update the News page, and will support future enhancements.

The main focus of the site is the E-Commerce aspect, which I built using the Zen Cart framework. It's a great open-source shopping cart software that is totally customizable to suit the client's needs.
