Agapanther Tiles

I built this site for a local tile maker as a project for my Web 200 class. I originally  made it as a project for my first web class, using tables to style the site. This is my second attempt  – this time using CSS.  The site is broken down into PHP includes. The main navigation uses PHP to highlight the current page. The gallery uses a JavaScript plugin to display her artwork. The site also has a simple contact form and imbedded Google map. My next step for this site will be to convert it to a WordPress site with a custom theme.

Sibling House

This site was a redesign project in my Web 210 class for a non-profit named Sibling House. I worked as project manager and designer with a team of 3 other students. I helped create the visual design and HTML template files and lead  site deployment and bug fixes. I also worked on the typesetting and font selection of this site. We chose to go with Google fonts for the header tags because to keep costs down for our client.  I  created an HTML/CSS template which the development team converted  into a WordPress theme. Unlike my previous sites the active page indicator in the main navigation is achieved using the dynamic tags created by WordPress and does not require any PHP.

Survival Apps

I built this site on WordPress to showcase my Android App project. It is my first attempt at creating a custom theme using HTML5. I used a JavaScript slideshow plugin to display new apps and news stories. The blog and apps pages both use the same blog roll but each uses a custom template to filter posts by category. I created the logo and branding as part of my typography course. The site links to actual apps I built, using PhoneGap and lots of help from a friend. I am currently enrolled in an Android development course and hope to expand this site into a fully functional portal for my app business.
