I have been designing WordPress websites for individuals and small businesses since 2014. In 2015, I led the team at Science Magazine that designed, developed and implemented the first digital asset management system. See a few samples of my work below.
Corporate Web Design: Vault
In 2015 I led the team that designed, developed, and implemented the first digital asset management system at the organization. I worked closely with many departments at Science Magazine on this initiative. The system needed to hold all photos, graphics and illustrations published in the magazine. I used my experience as a photo researcher to determine the parameters for the system. As I spoke with employees on different teams at Science, I began to design a simple web interface that met their needs. Vault is now successfully serving as a centralized digital asset management system for all published assets at Science. It was an exciting project and one that was essential for the organization.
Small Business Web Design
Jan Watkins is a lawyer and clinical social worker who runs her own business in the Washington, DC area. We worked together to envision a simple, user-friendly website that contains a lot of information about her background and her practice. She advertises events on her website, allows clients to sign up for individual sessions online, and sells products.
Lucky Thai Restaurant is a family-owned restaurant that opened in the spring of 2016. The restaurant features authentic thai dishes created by Mr. and Mrs. Sirirungsri. I have known the family for nearly 15 years, so I had an understanding of and appreciation for their incredible work ethic that allowed them to save enough money to open their own Thai restaurant after being in the United States for nearly 20 years. I received only a menu from Mrs. Sirirungsri and created the site using WordPress. Visit Website
Emotional Freedom Technique is a powerful self-help tool that is evidence-based. It is similar to acupuncture but involves no needles, only light tapping. Tapping in Schools is a company that is helping to teach the tool to educators around the world so that children can benefit from its use. When I first spoke with Sue Tarlton, I was excited by her mission and her goals for spreading information about this tool. I worked with Sue to develop visual and written content for the website, chose photographs for each page and created an e-commerce element for the site. Visit Website
Kale and Brownies was the brain child of a medically trained health-enthusiast who wanted to start sharing her knowledge and experience with others. The website contained blog postings, recipes and personal stories.
DRH is run by an experienced group of investors who seek out properties to purchase, update and sell. In my meetings with DRH, we discussed their business goals and I designed the site with their clients and goals in mind. This website was created with WordPress and I provided video training to the team so that they could update the site themselves.
