Overview

I've been a graphic designer since 2004, and love learning about new industries and different types of design. Although my training was primarily in identity development and print design, I fell in love with website design around 2007.

Website design has changed drastically since then, and being able to keep up with the design and development trends helps me ensure the websites I design and develop are fresh and current and help achieve the intended goals.

I primarily design and develop in WordPress, a content management solution now powering approximately 30% of the world's websites. It is a widely adopted platform with a variety of plugins (free and paid) that will help achieve your site's goals.

Projects

Honey Pot Meadery Identity & Website

New to the mead industry, Honey Pot Meadery came to me looking to create a modern and unique identity to help them stand out in a quickly growing market. I designed a new, modern logo, established brand guidelines, and created a simple website that conveys the history and core values of the company.

The Blast Website Design

The Blast, a new celebrity news website, was looking to design a custom WordPress theme for their launch. I designed a set of wireframes to with a rough layout of content and functionality, then took the approved layouts and designed a custom website based on their brand guidelines.

Dallas Mavericks

In collaboration with a local website development firm, we designed a custom WordPress theme for the Dallas Mavericks, a professional basketball team in the NBA. The custom WordPress theme included multiple custom page designs that are optimized for viewing regardless if you're on a desktop computer or a mobile phone.

Jason Chatham Album Designs

Similar to a book cover, designing an album cover needs to quickly grab someone's attention. Jason Chatham, or Christian artist, asked me to design his first ever full-length album and his first single.

MemberPress Identity & Website

I updated the identity and website of MemberPress, a membership plugin exclusively for WordPress. The new identity included a new and more modern logo with fresh colors and an approachable font. Brand guidelines were also created as MemberPress started implementing their new logo across various forms of media.

The new website design served as an extension of the newly designed identity, using the fresh color palette and approachable fonts to quickly engage users.
