I have successfully managed and completed numerous web design projects throughout my career.
Each project below displays background information, my thought process, discovery notes and wireframes.
Workspace Elements is a full-service office furniture dealership in Salt Lake City, Utah. They offer a full range of office furniture to meet the needs of diverse organizations. They tasked me with building a modern looking, mobile-friendly website that displays their capabilities and product offerings that support their business. They wanted a website that they could manage on their own, and more importantly, they wanted to have the ability to add multiple "Past Projects" they have completed within a gallery. Given those requests, I thought WordPress would be the perfect platform.
The NICDC is an active resource for the leaders of their premier furniture dealer network that enables them to work together to enhance the collective ability to give excellent service to their customers across North America. This overly simple website was already in existence, there were a few issues with it. The site was not mobile-friendly whatsoever, they did not have an interactive map to show dealership information, and their "Members" portal would not allow them to log in. I fixed these issues for them.
NEOCAN'T is ELEMENTS signature trade show event to showcase new products from their industry’s annual trade fair, NeoCon in Chicago. "If you CAN'T make it to NeoCon, come to NeoCan't." Kind of catchy, eh? This event has a different theme associated with it each year, and in 2015, the theme was "Construction".
For me, it was a much larger task than just building a sweet registration website... there was a whole marketing campaign to go along with it. Trade show banners, large format prints, direct-mail flyers, vendor name tags, email campaigns, event handouts, CREJ ads... there was a lot of work involved to simply get people to come to a one night event.
Stepping Stone Support Center is dedicated to increasing self fulfillment through constructive work opportunities and meaningful lifelong relationships for adults with developmental disabilities. For this project, I was tasked to create a professional one-page website that would be jam-packed with information. My challenge was to figure how to best display all of this information, while maintaining consistency throughout the website. I also had to make it mobile-friendly and function properly across devices. I don't usually like to use accordions, but in this case, they became my best friend. Even though there was a lot of work involved, I truly enjoyed this project because it gave me a chance to expend all of my effort towards a good cause.
