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.

4tell Solutions

4tell™ Solutions, a Sustainable Performance Governance Solutions was ready to update their static website. Through a referral, they contact me to consult on the production of their new website. I worked with their team to develop a framework for the marketing team to promote 4tell™'s products and solutions.

4tell™ was in need for a designer/developer to help engineer the foundation for their future online efforts. They are mostly a .net environment but wanted a clean CMS for development that their A.E. and Project managers could be trained to maintain updates. Drupal gave us the environment we needed to control the permissions and allow certain users to access only their sections of the site to update. Working with 4tell™'s Chief Marking Manager to develop the existing look.

Found Animals

Contracted by The SOAP Group in Portland, Maine to build out an online brand for Found Animals Foundation. This is a worthy cause, dedicated to minimizing shelter euthanasia. Found Animals creates programs designed to reduce shelter intake, increase live release rates. It was a pleasure working with the SOAP team and for a great client.

Asked to consult on a new website for an innovative animal foundation. They needed a dynamic website to help drive their donations and be a resource for alternative information on neutering and spaying. My solution was to work with the SOAP team to create a strong online presence and a great foundation to build off of. Joomla allowed the client to maintain the website with news updates and press releases.

Qumu Webcasting & Video Solutions

Through a referral from another client, I was asked to consult with McKinley Media on a redesign of one of their existing clients. I set up the initial environment and site architecture. The theme was developed from a PSD provided by the marketing company. I was asked to reproduce their vision. The project was successful. After my role in this project, McKinley Media has done a great job building this site into an award winning website.

I was asked to consult on the beginning stages of this project with McKinley Media. They needed someone to train them on Joomla and push their vision with-in the framework and 3rd party components. My solution was a tight relationship wit McKinley Media and an innovative mind to solving the technical challenges that were thrown our way. We used multiple components to achieve the dynamic feel to this site. I enjoyed working with another talented designer/developer on this project.

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.
