finished up another web design project this weekend:  100% of the site was done by me: the photography, design, writing, coding…it was a long process to get it going, but it’s finally there.

i’ve known the owner of the salon for about 12 years now.  i started out doing their logo, and have designed everything from their business cards to direct mail.  she and her staff are great people to know, and they do great at their job.  if you’re in the richmond area & need a haircut (or manicure or massage, for that matter), head over there!

website re-launch

Last night I discovered, by good fortune, that my website was down (due to a corrupt .xml file, I think). As I’ve been actively promoting my business in 2009, this was not good. So I took the opportunity to do a complete re-design and upgrade.

The new design is something I’ve been kinda tinkering with for a couple of weeks, but was holding onto it until I was ready to commit to re-doing the site. It’s much deeper than my original site, and gives the visitor a better look at my business and what I can do for my photography and design customers. The site was built with a combination of Photoshop, SiteGrinder, Lightroom, and Dreamweaver.

Of course, it’s not “done”; there are still a few upgrades I’m working on, especially on the contact page. I also am working on integrating joomla as I continue to learn that.

So hop on over there and take a look. All feedback is welcomed!

when i first heard of twitter, i thought it was a silly, narcissistic gimmick. but as i’ve developed my freelance photography and graphic design business, i’ve come to realize that it can be a very useful tool to keep clients and friends updated on the projects i’m working on, while also serving as a valuable networking opportunity to get in touch with fellow creatives.

so last night i finally signed up. if you’re interested in following me, you can do so here: i promise to not post silly, wasteful updates, like “just ate a ham sandwich!” and the like.

hope to hear from you!

trophies of grace

finally finished phase 1 of a major web design project:  trophies of grace.  these guys are a father and two sons out of Florida who are avid hunters, and they use that passion in order to get out their faith-based message.

the site’s not 100% done, but it’s a vast improvement over where it was before i was hired to re-design it.  have a visit & let me know what you think.
