Hi! I'm a web designer, web content manager, front end developer, user experience designer, whatever other words your HR department uses, and an altogether well-rounded creator of effective websites (and more).

Websites

re.claim

A Tumblr site that needed social media integration. I didn't make the theme, I made the twitter and facebook "follow" buttons to precisely match the theme's existing "Get in Touch" button and added the code which enables viewers to share the site's individual products through those two platforms.

The Anti-Tourist

This is a Wordpress site owned and operated by Elizabeth Seward. When she and her team needed technical assistance, I served as a consultant to implement and customize various plug-ins and modified aspects of their chosen theme to accomodate their vision. Their theme was conflicting with two of their plug-ins (the lightbox and menu bar), so I dove into their PHP and CSS files and corrected the issues.

How to Lie Using Math

It can be difficult to tell the difference between a good source of information and a bad one given the ubiquity and accessibility of online media. This is especially true when good design is involved, because people tend to put more trust in an expensive-looking site. There are some excellent skeptic blogs out there devoted to debunking such sites, but most of them don't do a good job of reaching out and instead preach to the choir. I took a friendly tone with a walkthrough-style to avoid that scene. The reader need not trust the authority of any writer, simply follow the cited data so they can see the truth for themselves.

I was inspired to make a graphical mini-site to explain the inconsistencies in one blatant piece of yellow journalism both as a new approach to reach people AND as an exercise in emerging CSS3 and Jquery trends. I deliberately went over the top for fun, and I would not use css3-only pie charts for a real client, just images. It's interesting to see what is possible, but the threats of old browsers that can't properly render CSS3 or a connection hiccup causing the stylesheet to not load would be a catastrophic loss of visual information.

Shoot the iPhone

One of those banner ad games. Mine is a slightly classier version than most of the advertisement games out there, but still very attention-grabbing. If this was active on a site, the "Congratulations" screen would redirect to the raffle site after a few seconds.

Imaging

Retouch: Clothing Color

Clothing color change

Clothing color change. The rust colored dress is the original. Rust to blue was easy because they are about the same brightness. Rust to yellow and required some extra massaging of shadows and highlights.

Retouch: White Dress

Mouse over the images to see the original versions. For this one, I focused on reshaping her waist and hips. I shrunk her waist and evened out the curves of her hips for a more uniform hourglass shape while keeping her pelvis intact for an anatomically correct look. Her legs had some veins and uneven tones, so I smoothed those out and added a dark minky tone with modified highlights to make it look like she is wearing tights. I eliminated stray hairs from around her face and dust and damage from her shoes and the floor. I enhanced the highlights in her eyes and the dress's embellishment, cleaned up her makeup, added a hint of shadow under her cheekbones, and softened some harsh lighting on her face. Her nose needed some reshaping for symmetry. I intensified her hair color and added some subtle highlights and lowlights. Distracting light reflections in the background were toned down.
