Troy Family Practice

The physicians at Troy Family Practice wanted a complete redesign of their existing website. A new look was long overdue.

I redesigned their site and gave it a fresh, clean look befitting of this suburban Detroit medical practice. In addtion, I used WordPress as the content management system that drives the site, allowing the Practice Administrator to update site content regularly, as well as to establish a "blog" feature for discussing medical issues and questions.

As is my standard, the site is valid XHTML to the Strict Standard, valid CSS, Section 508 compliant. It also conforms to W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines Level 3. I think that's a big deal and am pretty proud of it!

DollarBuyDollar.com

Since they wanted to have full control over the content of their website, the folks over at DollarBuyDollar.com decided to have a custom WordPress theme developed for their new website.

I worked closedly with the owner of the business to quickly develop, test and install a customized theme that is widget ready, standards compliant and Google Adsense optimized. The theme also incoporates some very neat search engine optimization techniques particular to WordPress - thanks to Mike Cherim. I am happy with how the project came out and so is the owner, which is all that really matters.

In addition to being standards compliant, the sites also meets Section 508 standards for accessibility as determined by the standard set by the US Government.

Willson Steinkopf Landscape Design Contractors

Suburban Detroit landscape design contractor Willson Steinkopf wished to have a website that was consistent with their image as one of southeastern Michigan's premier landscape solution providers.

Working in conjunction with JPS Marketing & Communications, I was able to develop a website solution that was consistent with the printed advertising material that had previously developed. I am happy with how the site turned out, and so are the clients! I guess that's what really matters!

As usual, the site is written with valid XHTML and valid CSS code, as is our standard. The site also validates thru Level 2 Priority W3C (WCAG - AAA Compliance) for quality, accessibility, and privacy as determined by WebXAct.

Molnars Tuxedo Rentals & Sales

When Molnar's Tuxedo wanted an initital website, they turned to us to do the project. Molnars Tuxedo rents, sells & services quality formalwear. They are located in downtown Rochester, Michigan which makes them centrally located for all the formal wear needs of people living in the Greater Detroit suburbs.

Molnar's wanted an initial web presence that would highlight their longstanding business. They wanted the site to look classy and upscale, something that we feel was accomplished by using the black and purple colors called for by the client. The site also showcases my first attempt at multiple CSS style sheets, complete with a style switcher which is located in the footer of the web page.

The site is written with valid XHTML and CSS code, as is our standard. The site also validates thru Level 3 Priority W3C (WCAG - AAA Compliance) for quality, accessibility, and privacy as determined by WebXAct. This probably doesn't mean much to most people, but it is something that I am really proud of.

Scott Home Technologies

Florida based Scott Home Technologies is a structured home wiring integrator. Actually, Scott Home Technologies offers a wide range of home wiring products other than alarm systems, including structured wiring, home audio, home video, central vacuum systems and home intercom.

This project was based on a previous template that was designed for nationwide members of a consortium of structured wiring businesses. The Scott Alarm site was enhanced significantly from this template, however. Written in a combination of HTML and PHP, this site is standards compliant, fast loading and visually pleasing. The site even has a modest Flash header that adds a touch movement to make it less static. In fact, the main imagery on the home page is also incoporates a PHP driven “image swapper”, which changes the main photograph each time the page is loaded, a feature that keeps the site fresh in the eyes of the user.

A simple Content Management System was included with the finished website to allow Scott Alarm to control a significant portion of the text content on their website.

Monarch Deck

As a nationwide producer and distributor of composite decking material, Monarch Deck was interested in a re-design of their existing website to coincide with the rollout of a nationwide advertising campaign.

This project involved working closely with an outside advertising agency, who had been contracted to rollout a new nationwide print advertising campaign for Monarch Decking. In cooperation with the advertising agency, we worked closely with the Marketing Director of Biewer Lumber (the parent company of Monarch Decking) to mock-up and complete a working prototype of their new website. Please take a look at the new Monarch Deck website!

This website is dynamic and database driven. It utilizes PHP scripting and MYSQL databases, both for the site content and for the site navigation links, as well as XHTML code and CSS for stylized content.

Westside Forestry

Basic website exposure was what Westside Forestry Services need to further enhance their image as one of the oldest forestry businesses in the State of Michigan. Westside Forestry has been in the forestry business for over fifty years, but just this year decided to develop a website to portray their business on the Internet. They chose us to develop a basic website that highlights their business and their committment to the community.

We were able to coordinate this site development through an outside advertising agency that Westside Forestry Services had contracted with to develop their print advertising. The end result is a custom designed site that meets the needs of this longstanding Michigan business.

Gerald Roux Homes

Custom builder Gerald Roux Homes is a southeastern Michigan custom home builder. They are are currently building custom homes in two subdivisions in the southeastern Michigan area. This project is still on our testing server and the link provided shows a screenshot of the project.

Part of this project involved the completion of two complicated modules that show subdivision sitemaps and the availability of lots in those subdivisions. These dynamic maps allow the site adminstrator to make regular updates to the site when lots are sold or when other data pertinent to the individual lots changes. Special thanks to Mike Cherim for his work on these maps. Additional thanks to Danny Halarewich for graphic design work on this project.

Vitex Systems

Another Florida based business, Vitex Systems, needed a redesign of their current website. This project involved XHTML, PHP database programming and a MYSQL database.

Working closely with both the company owner and their outside advertising agency, we were able to design a clean, professional looking website that satisfied the client completely.

Morton's Pharmacy

Morton's Pharmacy image

The website for Morton's Pharmacy is a simple brochureware website. The downtown Rochester, Michigan independent pharmacy wanted an initial web presence to provide information to their customers.

This website was completed early in my web design career, but I am pleased to say that it features both valid XHTML and CSS markup. The site also conforms to the automated checkpoints of Priority Level 1 accessibility, which isn't perfect, but does indicate that a good degree of care was excercised when designing this website.
