My Web Design Work

Below are a few websites that I’ve created and collaborated on with my clients since 2012. From discovery, project managing, coding and theming, to copywriting, graphic design, revisions and troubleshooting, these sites were built with my client’s customers in mind first and foremost.

Another of my personal websites and hobby exploration can be found at FilmChurch.org.

Aaron at Discover Counseling needed a professional, business website created from his existing content. After sitting down and discussing what Aaron was working to accomplish, we found that re-designing his website and fixing a broken plugin were the top priorities.

I took all of his content from his existing WordPress site and imported it into a fresh installation where I set him up with a new theme and integrated new theme elements to work with his content.

With a bit of training, Aaron was able to dig in and create new content himself.

Aaron has access to our collection of WordPress training videos and occasionally has me jump in to create more advanced site functionality and design.

Homestead Stove Company

Homestead Stove Company had been subscribing to an expensive ERP level software suite to manage their site when we began work. Homestead had decided to discontinue use of the old system and commissioned me to create a new website back in 2011. Initially building with HTML and CSS, we eventually migrated to Concrete5, a CMS created right here in Portland, Oregon.

In 2015, Homestead wanted to add eCommerce options for products. After our discovery process, we decided that WordPress and Woocommerce were appropriate, and I began to build. The redesign included working out an entirely new brand, from color scheme to logo, business cards, and signage; I worked with Homestead revamping everything.

To help facilitate sales during the busy season, we launched a beta version of the site with about a two dozen products. I continually added products throughout the season and also enabled local customers to make purchases after they left the store.

I continue to work with Homestead to update their website or create new marketing assets for ad campaigns.

Nathan at Life Encounter Counseling required an update to his practice’s business website. Originally built statically with HTML, CSS, and PHP, we worked to enable blogging and site updates via WordPress.

After migrating content from his original site, we designed a fresh new look utilizing a new theme. Translating static content into eye-catching, animated elements (by request), we helped Nathan create a new, modern look while providing a useful web experience for his clients and visitors.

Da’Hui Bar and Restaurant

After going through a set of thorough web strategy exploration sessions, Mike at Da’ Hui decided to have me build a website from scratch.

The plan was to create a restaurant site that communicated Da’ Hui’s aesthetic while informing potential patrons about the food, drink and happy hours as well as their catering services.

Da’ Hui did not have a current website to work from, so I conducted interviews with Mike and some of his staff to determine where to start.

As I worked, I regularly showed my progress to Mike to ensure we were going in the right direction. After making a few recommended changes, Mike felt that the design personified the style and flair of the Hawaiian bar and restaurant.
