"Oh, for the love of the internet" blog
This was a design that I did for a short-lived WordPress blog project of mine for curating stylish websites.
Kiddogogo.com design 1
Kiddogogo.com is now a blog, but the original site was a php, mysql, and ajax site that let parents review and save places to do things as a family. The design was intentionally simple. This was the first design iteration.
Kiddogogo final design
The design was simplified even further to only include color for the site banner and the reviews. The large font size and average review made it easy for a user to quickly identify whether a place got good or bad reviews by the community.
This is the design for the Rayovac website that I put together for them while at Clotho Advanced Media. Flash could be used for more than streaming videos at the time. Not very SEO friendly though.
Rayovac.com category navigation rollover
Navigation would fan out from the main categories when a user rolled over the links.
Rayovac subcategory navigation rollover
Users could then select the subcategory from the choices that fanned out from the parent category.
Brewery Creek is a small brew pub and bed and breakfast. I know. It's pretty awesome. They needed a web site that they could manage themselves. Drupal and Joomla were both really new. I created a homegrown php CMS that let them manage their properties, menu and image gallery. The background is inspired by the antique wallpaper of the bed and breakfast and repeats brewing hops to make the pattern.
Brewery Creek newsletter
The owners email the menu and specials each week to subscribers. The email reflects their online presence.
