Projects

Adam Findley Studio | International Acting Coach Offering Events, Workshops & Private Coaching

Adam came to me in need of a major renovation and overall restructuring of his studio website. His website serves as a central hub for his business and it was important that this transformation take place with no downtime for website visitors. He needed his new site to attract new clients, share information about upcoming courses and events, and allow students to book sessions with him online. I designed the website to appear edgy, creative and modern to speak directly to his ideal audience. The new site features a sleek bulletin board that allows us to rotate current events and studio news, an extensive branded booking system that is easy to use, a series of sales pages for targeted promotions, a designated FAQ page, and boosted SEO features to help his brand reach far and wide. The final product is a sleek website that functions as both a profitable business and a branded platform to serve both new and old clients around the world.

IN THEIR WORDS
"Samantha not only made me an effective website that attracts a lot of students for my coaching business, but she also made it easy for me to understand how to manage my site and make simple updates as needed. She's been a huge help in educating and aiding me in all things web design, and social media too- something I have little experience with. Most of all, Samantha has a special talent for fusing your style and purpose into one. I highly recommend her services." – Adam

Eduardo Saucedo | Professional Actor For Film & TV + Media Production Professional

This portfolio website was designed for professional actor, Eduardo Saucedo. Our mission was to showcase his range of experience and unique skillset to help leverage new opportunities in the film & media industry. Eduardo wanted the site to have a dark and moody aesthetic to reflect his personal style. He needed the site to highlight impressive projects he’s been a part of, headshots, current demo reel, resume, and personal biography. Most importantly, we wanted to accomplish all of this in an easy-to-digest single page website. I designed this site to allow Eduardo’s portraits to draw visitors in. We also wove Spanish words into a few headings to speak to Eduardo’s bilingual abilities. I used a sleek, rotating slider to share his collection of new headshots. As a nod to the world of film, I stylized his acting credits to look like film credits rolling at the end of a movie. In order to help him reach a wider audience, I also added a multilingual integration so the website can be read in either English or Spanish. The website oozes professionalism and creativity all in one. Eduardo is able to use this site to bolster himself as a noteworthy actor that any agency or production company would be enthused to collaborate with.

Roller Coaster Road Productions | Emmy & Peabody Award-Winning Documentary Team

Roller Coaster Road Productions needed help updating and elevating their outdated portfolio website. They had a site they had outgrown and were looking to give their expanding brand a professional, fresh look. One of their key desires was to see their large portfolio of documentary work seamlessly integrated throughout the website. In response, I designed a sleek website with a creative yet professional look to compliment the tone of their award-winning documentaries. On the home page, I created an engaging layout that highlights their most impressive recent projects and prompts visitors to dive deeper into their portfolio. The 16-page site includes a collection of pages that feature each documentary's trailer, description, and stills from the project. Some of my favorite features include a scrolling slider showcasing major networks their team has worked with, high-resolution video integrations throughout the site, and strategically placed hover features that maintain a sleek layout. The final result is a bold, easy to navigate website that reflects the high-calibre team behind every Roller Coaster Road Production.

IN THEIR WORDS
"Throughout the web design process, Sam was exceedingly helpful and collaborative as we discussed our vision and the execution of our new website. She listened carefully to what we liked and needed and also contributed her own fantastic design ideas and added flare to the vision. She was very organized throughout. We're incredibly happy with the great communication, professional consideration, and overall result of this collaboration with Sway!" – Sarah
