I’ve done a lot of work for engineers over the years. I like organizing information that I know nothing about and making it understandable in layman’s terms. This project is for CPM Environmental, next I’m working on CPM’s over-all site. This is my first site using html 5, couldn’t use php on this installation. Responsive design!
Just started working with Julie Elliott, of IN FIORI. If only computers had scratch and sniff technology :)
Which category to put this, work, art or life? Little Big Draw, a live drawing event @ Mua was really fun to put together. Michael McConnell and John Casey rounded up the talent: Michael McConnell, Nicole Hayden, Aaron Petersen, Rachel Robertson, Alison Frost, Alison Tharp, Crystal Morey, Lauren Napolitano, Gina Tuzzi, Obi Kaufmann, Marcos LaFarga, Nathaniel Parsons, Dave Higgins, Jon Carling, John Casey, Jake Watling, David five ash. Michael McC did the invite. San Ju Made sure the starving artists got fed.
Also up a group show, more art 4 u, will be up through the end of December, ever changing, since as art is bought or traded new art goes up. There’s some work here even other artists can afford. Tim Gatto, Carina Johnson, Phil Aro, Michelle Cernuto, Paul Mavrides, Susan DeGregorio, Patrick Carpenter, Karen Dunn, Simone Simon, Lisa Mendelson,Susan Scott, Heather Wilcoxon, Nin Nguyen, Nicole Hayden, Michael McConnell, Karyn Yandow, Krishna Bhat, Dustin Turner, Ann Phelan, Jacob Rimler, CP-37, Leslie Straw (ha ha) and more.
I was hearing about Tango & Stache from different sources, but couldn’t figure out what they were, a restaurant maybe? because their site was always down. So I contacted them and was able to help them untangle all the interwebness, and set them up with a basic WordPress site that is responsive (can display in all the different media from phone to big screen) and that they can update and style as they like. Plus I got a great date night trade and pineapple jam. Love and a Skillet :).
I think of all the sites I’ve designed, La Cocina’s is the most successful in terms of overall usability. Recently updated the back end. Look at all that content! They do a great job keeping the site updated and so they get tons of traffic. Also got a virus but I fixed it, yay me !
One of my favorite contact pages. Eye contact! Leah Bershad’s truly one-of-a-kind store that you should go to— Reliquary on Octavia in Hayes Valley.
Just when I get the site redone (above) Nex changes and becomes part of Mua. Sigh.
NEX is the latest restaurant site created for San-ju and Hi-suk (Mua, Soizic, and Pastoral). I love working with them—creative, fluid, non-corporate aesthetic. Yay for that! (Also for the side benefits, he he) This site was built in WordPress so they can update menus, add photos, be “liked” on facebook, etc. I also help managing online reservations and marketing.
A lot of new clients are Green or Mission Driven, which is cool. This site was with Windesheim Design for YR&G sustainability consultants based in NY.
Just got these samples back from Stuart Hata at the de Young Museum Store of San Francisco. They came out pretty good considering how limiting these kinds of products are… ( Windesheim Design )
Redesign of Windesheim Design’s website. We kept a lot of the same design elements but got rid of the Flash so that it would work mobile. We made it a WordPress site so that it would be easy for us to update. The photography is mine as well.
La Cocina, the incubator kitchen in the Mission in San Francisco, is one of Windesheim Design’s non-profit clients. Caleb Zigas came to us asking for a site that would get the information out to the community, integrate with social networking (twitter, facebook, youtube), sell product via paypal, translate, and be editable by volunteers. Whew. We used this project to develop a WordPress template that more of our other non-profits and small businesses could use. The site has been very successful—they have had so much traffic they had to up the capacity twice.
This site, built in wordpress for Joel Benson’s Dependable Letterpress, takes advantage of how easily new images and information can be uploaded by Joel and staff, and cross-linked to designers’ sites and in special cases, their clients.
Regard IP, (an intellectual property law firm) needed a fast identity and web presence for their new SF office. They had some interim cards printed at dependable letterpress, so I used the letterpress aesthetic as a jumping off point to create this logo. From there we put together an introductory website to expand as they grown, a custom email campaign template and stationery system.
I recently had the pleasure of redesigning a website for WE-ACTx (through Windesheim Design). WE-ACTx is an organization that advocates for the health and well being of the women and children of Rwanda, post genocide. The site (wordpress) had to be completely reorganized and streamlined to make it as easy as possible for volunteers to update. Visually, the design challenge was to make the viewer feel a more personal connected to the women and children served.
This website is for Oakland artist CP-37. I’m including it here because even though it’s old in website years (5) I still think it works well with his art.
This is the website for Mua, Hi-suk and San-ju Dong’s latest bar and restaurant in Oakland. The design reflects the eclectic and ever changing nature of the place and is built in WordPress to make it easier to stay current. I manage the content, do most of the photography/video, help select artists to exhibit, manage and monitor their Twitter and Yelpness. I also help them to consume cocktails and food items, because well, someone has to. (Cap’n John photo by Eu-ri Dong)
The walls in Torryne Choate’s upscale flower design shops birch and birch hayes valley are painted black, which makes the amazing flower arrangements and objects d’art stand out even more. The website is designed in the same aesthetic. Torryne also takes all the amazing photos for the site.
