I had some free time this morning and finally updated my portfolio with some of the sites I have had the privilege to build over the past few months. Today I wanted to feature 5 of my newest WordPress sites:
Austin Craft Mafia
The ladies at Austin Craft Mafia wanted a clean, open design that let the photos make the impact. I used a Woo theme framework and implemented the new design. The framework allowed for the thumbnails above each post to be automatically generated. This blog features 9 different authors, and under each blog post is an Author info box. An Amazon widget allows the ladies to show off their books, and a Security code feature minimizes the ever-problematic comment spam.
Sweet Songs Benefit Album
Austin’s Monica Cravotta and Sara Hickman put together this children’s album featuring Austin musicians — all to benefit the Austin Mother’s Milk Bank. I created the design from a painting by Andrea Burden and graphics by Cheryl Mills.
This site was formerly a piecemeal site with 3 different blogs and a separate web site. I brought all of the pieces together into one Worpress site built on a Studiopress framework so that all edits and additions can be done in one place and be more unified. There are 4 different authors for the site and different graphics for the headers in different sections of the site. Because of the site’s new tighter integration, the home page now features links to the latest posts for each section. The Audrey TV page automatically pulls in Audrey’s YouTube videos, so that she does not have to spend any time adding those to her web site.
Stallman Builders in Traverse City, Michigan, needed a site that would put the emphasis on the beautiful remodel and construction work they do in their area. All of their photos can be enlarged without leaving the page, and they can easily add new photos to their portfolio at any time.
Austin’s Pamela Nevarez is a personal chef who needed a fresh, clean site to feature her services and photos, and she needed to be able to update her menus and press. WordPress was the perfect solution!
The above are just 5 of the latest of my WordPress creations. I am realizing that there are many more that I meant to feature on the blog, but somehow never got the posts written. Go check them out!
