Breathe4Today — A friend asked me to create a website dedicated to pulmonary fibrosis and pulmonary hypertension. She already had a following on Facebook but wanted a website where she could post new information about the diseases and keep everyone up to date.
The Crowdfundamentals — We were asked to help a client who wanted to use WordPress and the Education theme from Genesis to get her crowdfunding project up and running. She also wanted to take advantage of the responsive features of the theme and wanted us to make sure that her site would look the same regardless of the size of the screen it was on which it was being viewed. We did some training on the proper use of widgets for the theme, set up and edited some pictures for the slide show widget, and gave her other tips on how to take advantage of the options this theme had to offer.
Christ Tabernacle Church of God in Christ — We were asked to create a web presence for a church in Waynesboro, VA. After speaking with administration and members of the congregation about their goals for the site and their target audience, we developed a site where they could share basic information about the church and the COGIC denomination to people searching for a “church home”. Another requirement was for the site to be easy to manage, and expandable as new website features were needed. We set up the initial site with pages about general information, various ministries, a calendar of upcoming events, a blog page for messages from the pastor, and a contact form. We also gave lessons on uploading pictures, blog posts, and how to manage the calendar plugin. This site includes space for a slide show plugin and three text widgets on the front page. It’s also responsive.
Zazus — Zazus needed to migrate its website, which had been created and hosted by a former employee, to a new web hosting service. We backed up the old site, installed WordPress on a new web host, and uploaded the original web design. Then we designed a theme using the Genesis framework. We widened the site, put in a slide show at the top to better show pictures of their wraps, salads and other dishes, a sidebar, and three text boxes at the bottom of the front page to highlight other restaurant information like hours of operation and location. The theme is responsive, so it’s designed to shrink or expand depending on the size of the device it’s being viewed on. We also added a page to for potential catering clients.
All Saints — The graphic designers at Lapdog Productions asked us to take the design that they created in Photoshop and turn it into a functioning WordPress theme. We used the Thematic theme framework, which is fully search engine optimized, includes 2 and 3 column layouts, and comes with many widget ready areas available for customized use. We worked with the All Saints representative to determine the initial menu and submenu items, and then installed and formatted the the slide show plugin, and the three areas underneath it.
The site is now being expanded and maintained by church members.
Trinity Episcopal Church — We were asked to design a site for the church, and we used the WordPress and the Thesis website framework to come up with a theme that’s search engine optimized, easy for church members to edit and maintain, and is expandable as members record sermons, videos and music from their worship services and other programs.
In 2013 the site was redesigned using the Modern Portfolio theme and the Genesis framework to make the design more interesting visually and so that the church members could better express the church’s personality, history, and philosophy.
Eyebrow Renovation — We were asked to help a client who wanted change the color scheme of her website to match her business cards, stationery, etc. We also did some training on the proper use of widgets for the theme, how to upload pictures and text, and gave her other tips on getting the most out of WordPress.
McVicker Designs — Another site designed with WordPress and the Thesis framework.
DStroman.com — Dr. Stroman asked us to come up with a website that for her various business and personal interests. We used the Thematic theme and created graphics using Photoshop to personalize the site and set up links to her twitter feed. We also set up a picture gallery and a contact form for one of her business pages.
