Dr. Guldal Caba’s InnerPathic Process

I’ve been working in conjunction with James Carrol (my partner in DigiCommune) to create a vast website that explains the elements of Dr. Guldal Caba’s InnerPathic Process. James created the site logo, store logo and media page graphics. I did all HTML in Dreamweaver, prepped all images and redesigned a few graphics provided by the client.

The site also includes a Blog page – client was given an explanatory document and tutorial videos on how to run it.

Site design for TheJordanPease.com

I just finished this lovely and attractive complete custom-designed blog installation for author Jordan Pease’s website. He was very pleased and felt I captured his essence with the virtual desktop vibe.

The design is based on the WordPress Theme Desktop Chaos, but all graphics have been replaced in a complete facelift and CSS has been edited to create a new look.

Social Dashboard Website Layout and Teaser

A client asked me to reskin (change color scheme and swap out the logo) an interface design I had created for his old just-about-defunct website so he could use it for his new venture – Social Dashboard.

UPDATE: Detailed notes and layered files were provided to his programmers, but it seems they are now past the deadline that was provided me when I created the layout and the teaser animation still seen at the site, so your guess is as good as mine. Client is now a former client due to nonpayment.

Lord Martine Global

I customized and set up LordMartine.com after the client chose the base WordPress theme, as well as provided a basic instructional document to assist the client with getting started. Updates still in progress.

In addition to the fliers, postcards, postcards and box offfice banner that I created as part of the print campaign, Sasha Soprano asked me to come up with a website interface as well. To help cement the brand, the site is in keeping with the previously designed posters etc.

TART Collections UPDATE and site facelift 2009

This year TART decided to mix things up a bit. They wanted to lose the horizontal lines and shape elements that have been the foundation of the layout. They never want to spring for a whole new site design so these kind of requests are a way to make the site look new and different, but you cannot just take out of a foundation without adjusting something else if you expetc things to remain standing, so I worked with some of the patterns they provided for this season and came up with an elegant solution that gave them a new look at the cost of an update.

PXLFORGE 2006 Redesign

While you enjoy the new incarnation, the version of my portfolio that went live in 2006 will remain available online here.

TART Collections UPDATE and site resize 2008

This time around the TART update was a bit more complicated. They decided to upsize the live area. Now these files WERE in Flash so resizing is possible. But it was a fair amount of work to do the math, calculating all the new specs, resizing all the individual FLAs to match and the reassembling it with HTML. But it ended up a fairly seamless color / coltent update and site resize.

Atlas Pallet Inc

I modeled, textured and rendered these 3D stacks of pallets in Maya because the client was unable to provide photos of their product that were suitable quality for a main homepage splash image. Check out the full site HERE (note, site has been taken down since, so this version is hosted at pxlforge.com).

TART Collections UPDATE 2007

I’ve updated the TART website. The design was planned with updatability in mind so the general color update wasn’t to much of a problem once we’d decided upon a color scheme. The gallery updates aren’t that time consuming – mostly repetitive Photoshopping and the a lot op updating FLAs, but I’m pretty damn fast. (NOTE this version has since been replace online – linked version is hosted at PXLFORGE)

Creatus Maximus

I’ve teamed up with James Carrol of Wijitworld on a website for our old friend Ken Lilly (former Palisades. The client wanted a futurist / retro animated interface and James and I worked on the concept together, then he designed and implemented the animation and I finalized all the textures / gradients etc. and assembled the site in html. Creatus Maximus has since been scaled down to just the forum. Original version hosted here.

TART Collections redesign 2006

I have designed a few different sites for TART over the past few years. Here is the latest which was planned with ease of updatability and customization for future upgrades in mind. (NOTE this version has since been replace online – linked version is hosted at PXLFORGE)
