WV Tractor doesn’t actually sell any products via their website, but I did make some interesting work to display their inventory the way they wanted, modifying WooCommerce to disable any actual shopping but retaining its easy product management system, while using Advanced Custom Fields to provide custom fields for their specific product data needs.
I was brought onto this site through a design partnership between WNCSocialMediaBuzz and Web Design Shop. I designed the site template and banner graphics, while WNCSocialMediaBuzz handled search engine optimization and entering product content once I’d finished laying out the links as requested. The logo in the header was originally a placeholder while we waited for a copy of their existing/previous logo, but they liked the placeholder so much that it stuck.
The West Virginia Infant/Toddler Specialist Network needed a website to promote the WV Infant/Toddler Professional Development Program, and distribute the WV Early Learning Standards Framework for Infants/Toddlers.
If that sounds like a mouthful, it was. But, I was able to provide them with a clean, fresh-looking WordPress site that communicates the professionalism and cheer of their mission.
Wholesale Tires wanted a new website that would allow them to sell used tires online, so I built them a WordPress site with WooCommerce, set up to accommodate their needs, including the ability to search their online inventory by tire dimensions. I was provided with a rough initial layout visual, but I translated it into a functional WordPress site and set them up with all the plugins and customization they needed.
Design Controls is an industrial water treatment systems provider based in Houston, Texas. The client was happy with their previous site’s look, but not its functionality, so I reused certain major design elements like the logo and background image, integrating them into a customized WordPress theme that would be easy for the client to update personally. The client wanted to sell certain products online, so I added the WooCommerce plugin, along with some thorough documentation in the guidebook I produced to help the client manage the site.
This site featured a large number of pages, with many internal links and very specific requests for the look and layout of some pages.
A2Mation is a sister-company or spin-off from Design Controls, and the process that went into it was very different. Most of the content built on top of an identical base to its sister site, with some A2Mation-specific additions, but the bulk of the work went into creating the branding, since A2Mation was a new company with no brand identity.
Many, many new ideas and revisions at the client’s request later, we were able to satisfy them with a distinctive look that communicates their vision of what A2Mation is as a company.
The Buckskin Council is a regional branch of the Boy Scouts of America, incorporating troops throughout West Virginia, Virginia, Ohio, and Kentucky. When I was brought onto the project, their site was a basic Kentico install with disorganized information and grainy images, so I presented their administrative board with a plan for tackling the site’s many problems, while taking their feedback to determine what new features and revisions.
I gave them a major visual overhaul, and I’ve been providing ongoing content updates sent to me by Council and District staff ever since, as well as consulted with them on a couple other web initiatives.
PetRecon is a free service that sends out text message and email alerts to members whenever a registered pet in their area goes missing. When I was brought on board, most of the underlying functionality of the site was written, but the site was in need of a real coat of paint to make it appealing for users. I designed and implemented most of the visual elements on the site, and was heavily involved with testing the site and getting it ready for the public launch of the PetRecon service.
We’re currently preparing an even better 2.0 look for the site that will make the site more attractive and easier to use. More details to come once that’s live.
