Accurate Control & Electrification

Small Business

Greenfield HTML/CSS site with W3.CSS framework.
Absorbed another brand name seamlessly into website while keeping original identity.
Manufacturers representative firm with a large number of OEM lines not uniformly available throughout it's territory. Created page for each territory state.
What exact products are available to be represented is not intuitively obvious or easy to discern from the OEM websites. Even the salespeople were confused. Explicitly enumerated each allowable OEM product by catageory.
Written product names are not standardized across OEMs. Illustrations of every product is used to greatly speed up selection/identification by customers, especially for enclosures.
Large OEM websites rarely have information designers need in one location. Gather as much OEM information on one page to facilitate the customer decision process.
There is no budget for professional stock photographs. Attractive high-quality free-with-attribution photos were utilized. Enhanced the professionalism by making the picture identification and relationship to the business an integral part of the attribution text. Customers said they enjoyed learning more about where the products were used while being inspired by the lush imagery.
The more difficult to explain system integration and services were demonstrated using custom diagrams as navigation/selection tools.

Designed to impress a very narrow target audience. Not a mass-appeal design.
All resumes are just claims. This portfolio site is meant to unquestionably prove claims with graphics that cannot be unseen.
Content continues to be developed going both forward and backward in time. Good content just takes time to create or even just to format properly for the web environment.

Friends of the Palo Alto Library

Small Non-profit Organization

Greenfield HTML/CSS site with W3.CSS framework.
Existing organization official website was in WordPress and logistically unable to manage a high volume of high resolution pictures that changed monthly.
The need for merchandise pictures was solved using minimal well-formatted HTML with an easy to change menu structure.
Long term identity color used since the days of print kept. Customers only really care about the picture content.
The long download time for the desired high-resolution pictures was mitigated by splitting content into many separate pages by subject.
Available merchandise is unknown until a few days before the monthly sale. A rapid site refresh process was developed.
