I put together this Wordpress site for the Delancey Hollywood Restaurant. The theme underwent extensive customization to get the look and feel of Bowery Enterprises, which has a retro style to most of their wonderful restaurants. The challenge was getting the style the client desired, while retaining the Parallax functionality.
The site was also built to be responsive, and to enable easy editing for the regularly changing menu items.

Fire and Creme Kids
This was my first big foray into e-commerce, that was done in conjunction with Communik8t. After researching various e-commerce options, we selected Shopify.com because it was a robust shopping cart solution that leant itself to complete customization. The Content Management System was easier to use than many other solutions out there. And we were able to achieve the clean visual look and feel for the client to show off their beautiful products.

I designed this responsive HTML5 website with a custom responsive design framework. It was designed to work across multiple browsers and devices: I implemented a variety of cross-browser Polyfills to make this work down to Internet Explorer 7 and 8. I worked closely with the client’s back-end development teach to meet their needs and requirements.
Some of the unique responsive solutions for this client included an interactive “image map“, where different parts of the image linked to different pages, and a responsive “ticker-tape” of their clientele.
I also created templates for pages with dynamic content.
I also am working with them on a responsive solution for their company’s intranet web applications.

I’ve been working as part of the content management team for UCLA Health for the past several years. The site uses a proprietary Content Management System. The work involves updating and creating content for this over 8,000 page website. I work on jQuery solutions for slideshows, and image editing for the main website. I also implemented an employee intranet site using WordPress. Visit uclahealth.org.

For this WordPress website for Richard Pietruska, I selected a WordPress theme called “Gridline.” I then implemented the theme in it’s simplest state, without the background image or lightbox rollovers which came with the theme. The simple grid showed the artist’s work without distraction. All of the bright automobile colors stood out nicely on the black background. The main challenge for this site was getting the images in a pleasing visual order, while working with WordPress’s method of organizing posts by date. The images were posted and then all of the dates had to be changed to get them in the correct order, while keeping them organized by category as well.

In and Up Pilates
I designed this website and branding several years ago as an html website for In & Up Pilates. It had worked well for them. The website link for the old html site is: In and Up Pilates. Recently I recreated the site as a WordPress site. I built the WordPress version as a custom theme. The website link for the new WordPress site is: In and Up Pilates WordPress site. It is very similar to the original html version, but with additional features, such as a custom post type for client testimonials, that can be easily posted in that section.

I implemented this WordPress theme using the Obox theme “Motion Picture”. Obox is another theme that has a strong framework that makes it easy for user’s to update themselves. I chose this theme because it was specifically designed for showing video. I integrated using Vimeo, since they have good resolution. Vimeo also allows users to post videos on their site only.
