Minecraft Hosting

Mine Axe is a responsive WHMCS Theme I created. I handled producing all the layouts, graphics, characters, backgrounds, HTML/CSS/Javascript, and overall direction for the site design. We also had a separate company I did graphics for called TreePuncher. Of course, the graphics were designed around the popular game Minecraft. This design was meant to make the gamer crowd feel “in their element” when signing up for Minecraft hosting with us.

Return Receipt Secure Email

I worked with back-end php developers on this site (Cake PHP). I was responsible for the overall look and feel of the site including the HTML/CSS/JavaScript. I first made mock-ups for the design and presented a functional preview. Once it was decided, I would write the front-end code then submit my pages to a repo where the back-end developers would then take that code and plug it into their code.

Exhibio Digital Signage

The Exhibio website was a long time project with constant tweaking and two re-designs. This version of the site had a strong focus on SEO, responsive design, visual display of what it could do, and explainer sections to help customers better understand the product. I designed and coded the site, themed the system UI, was responsible for creating template and demo scenes, and I did the training for those that purchased our system.

Home Page

Wanted to achieve a very visual home page.

I've worked on many projects for LocalNet & CoreComm internet services. I recoded LocalNet from the ground up making it more friendly to search engines and update the inner page design. Localnet and CoreComm hosting, advertisements, member start pages, and webmail log in sections were fully designed and coded by me. The webmail was a theme I created for Roundcube to match the member start page for LocalNet. Both companies have a large number of visitors per day to their respective sites.

LocalNet Home Page

This was similar to the original home page before I recoded it to keep a familiar feel. The inner pages were redesigned.

Wireframing - Adobe XD

When it calls for it, wireframing can be very helpful when doing a presentation. Adobe XD helps me easily layout and link pages. This is for a fun side project I was showing in a meeting.
