Dave Gutter's "The Key To Adore" CD Release Website

Contracted by Spark Creative to help in the production of a website for this local recording artist. With Creative Direction for Spark, I was able to quickly produce this 4-5 page site.

Dave Gutter & Evan Casas needed a small website to promote their new CD "The Key To Adore". The artist wanted to have the ability to post PodCast, Stream Videos and download MP3's. Working back and forth with Chris Trafford from Spark Creative to produce this small brochure site. Production was streamlined using Joomla to develop the website. Spark had the ability to edit content and place modules while I was writing the CSS and custom XHTML.

Spark Creative needed an assistance on producing a CMS site for a printing company with the ability to upload large documents while maintaining their long standing brand. Our solution was a quick design session with the client and a couple days of solid development. The theme/template was simple but right on and the client was ready to launch.

Group Dynamic

Contracted by Spark Creative to co-produce the redesign of the Group Dynamic website. Joomla was the solution that allowed us to train the client to update and maintain the website without having an in-house developer on staff.

Spark Creative needed someone to consult on the production of this website. The design would be a collaborative effort the client, Spark and myself. They requested the site be "dynamic" and clean for their user base. A custom theme and styled components is what makes this site stand out from others. The clean content architecture lets users find the information and forms needed to process their claims. Taking the time to learn the business helped us build a usable site.
