Matt Will, of Matt’s Hog Spit BBQ Sauce, asked me to design a new website for his unique sauce.
He wanted a simple website with a cool design that he could fill in with information and additional pages later. He also wanted to be able to sell sauce directly off of the website, and he needed to stay within a tight budget.

Using a logo that he provided, I designed a custom website and built it in PHP. PayPal Payment Standard is used to process credit card payments.

My wife, Melissa, is an outstanding wedding and portrait photographer.
Together, we created a marketing package, including logo, business cards and more, and built her a unique, functional website to promote her wedding packages and portraits.
In addition, we also built a custom photo shopping cart where she can easily upload a client’s photos and they can order prints directly from the website.

The founder of WhoReferredYou.com approached me with a unique idea. He wanted to create a listing service where users could create an account, and then for a small fee post referral offers. (You know, refer a friend to DirectTV and get $100, etc.)
I worked with him to find a solution that would fit a reasonable budget that we established.

This website allows users to create an account and then list offers, and it automatically collects their payment and updates their account using PayPal Payments Standard. The entire website was custom built in PHP.
On a limited budget, functionality, cross-browser compatibility and search engine optimization were much higher priorities for this project than a complex design scheme.
Shareese Watkins requested a professional, elegant logo, and one-page website that would get her independent project management career rolling. She wanted a website and brand that is basically an online professional resume, but that will be easily expandable and updatable as her business grows.
As an independent start-up, total cost was also very important to her.

The owner of Massagology.net had a website, but it was image based and the pages were impossible to edit.

Shirley Hyatt is the author of Clintonville & Beechwold, published by Archadia Books.
She requested that I customize a WordPress theme for her so that she could post additional information on the subject that didn’t fit in the book, and sell her books directly from her own website.

WordPress was a great option for this website because it’s free, and it’s very easy to use. Updating your blog is as easy as typing a document into Microsoft Word and hitting “submit.”
Shirley has a very cool book that’s a great compliment to the Archadia collection. It’s also available at Barnes & Noble and other bookstores.
