Minicattle.com Minicattle.com is the Registry for miniature cattle. The website also serves as a repository of information about the science of breeding and the business of miniature cattle breeding. This project was actually a makeover of an existing website which had been abandoned by the original designer. After some research and many exasperating telephone conversations with the various parties involved I was able to guide Michelle through the steps necessary to reclaim her deceased father's domain name and set her up with a new hosting and maintenance plan.

The major challenge with minicattle.com was the amount of information which had to be accessible and easily navigated. We chose a javascript driven fly out menu. This approach has the advantage of being easily edited in a single location/document and displayed across 80+ pages. There was a lot of editing and formatting work done to get a consistent look and feel for all the articles.

We also provided very conspicuous links to the most often used services of the registry.

T-ZINE Media was my first project using WordPress. While I still am not a huge WordPress fan I must give the developers credit, it makes a lot of things much easier than they are when you roll your own. That is, as long as you can locate the right menu and fill in the blanks from the documentation.

Kim's objective with T-ZINE Media is twofold; "a modern digital publishing and marketing company dedicated to developing a network of niche lifestyle publications exclusively for tablet devices" and to interest investors in a new digital publishing company.

Since the concept of the company is to produce digital publications for the tablet market the website had to completely scale for different size viewing portals (responsive). Wordpress has pretty much mastered this concept. Using some pretty handy plug-ins allowed me to take advantage of some nice accordion and slider effects as well.

Cartoonlink Marketing programs

Cartoonlink.com is the flagship website for my former employer and friend Stu Heinecke. The site pictured here is the latest iteration of a long-term project to sell Stu's marketing tools and programs. A former version of the website is featured below.

This version of the website features a content area which slides back and forth over the background image as the browser window is resized. Information within each page of the website is displayed in a content area in which the copy and graphics are swapped in and out of view without reloading the entire document. This is a handy technique which allowed us to present a lot of information, including videos, in a limited amount of space.

The website is hooked to a shopping cart and allows secure purchases of Stu's products and programs.

Marina Inn, Des Moines, WA The Marina Inn website is a multi-page website designed to extoll the attractions of staying in a hotel located in the Marina District of Des Moines, WA.

The website copy is designed to provide potential guests with information about the Inn and local tourist attractions.

The website features four separate slideshows and a contact form for reservation taking. I am currently in the process of optimizing Sham's website for search engine traffic. His site currently is featured in multiple reservation services, directories and hotel review websites. The object is to bring his organic listings near the top of the search results so visitors can go directly to the Marina Inn website to place a reservation rather than book a room through a third party.
