WordPress Website Design
While in school for Graphic Design I also took classes in Website Design using Adobe Dreamweaver.
I felt that designing websites was an extension of Graphic Design and Photography for me.
I discovered WordPress while still in school and have not looked back.
I design many of my websites in the last 12 years using a Theme called Divi made by Elegant Themes.
It is a very powerful and robust page builder for WordPress.
I am also very good at SEO (search engine optimization) so websites can be found by search engines.
Just below is just a sample of my Website Design Work.
WordPress Websites I Have Designed
Beyond The Shutter…
… is a website that I designer for a Wedding and Engagement photographer.
Since I was a wedding photographer at one time myself, I had a good idea how to present good photographs in an exceptional way to show what a really good photographer can do for someone’s wedding.
To show many photographs in a beautiful gallery setting, I used a premium plugin that would make the photograph much larger when you clicked on them.
I also came up with the idea of taking 12 square images and then hyperlinking each one individually to that photographers Instagram account.
I also designed three different images with Adobe Illustrator to link to the three different photography galleries. Weddings. Engagements. Featured Weddings.
Featured Weddings linked to a blog that showed a wedding that was photographed at different reception sites around the Phoenix Valley where the photographer works.
That also gave us better local SEO with a complete individual wedding and also gave prospective bride and grooms what a whole wedding looked like at that venue.

Aero Drone Visions…
… a website that I designed for a Drone company.
They shoot a lot of video and still photography for Commercial Construction, Neighborhood Developments, High-end Residential Homes, Events and Venues and Ad Agencies.
To show off their blogs in an attractive way on every page, we set it up to show just the last three blogs with its featured image, title and meta description.
When I was planning on designing a website for a Painting Contractor, we used this drone company to shoot video and still images of SRB Painting working on the outside of a house they were painting.
You will see that companies website a bit further down this page.

Unleashed Dog Training…
…was a website that I designer for a Dog Trainer in Cottonwood, Arizona.
I designed the slider at the top of the home page to go from No dog prints to more and more dog prints in a rotation 3 seconds each as if a dog kept walking over it.
The dog trainer loved and I thought it was pretty effective.
I designed links to different pages on the website using some of the dog trainers different pages of services.
I also showed the last three blogs on each page with the featured image, title and meta description.
I designed the logo for this customer.

Halfway Home Ministries
…was a website that I designed for a Non-profit Organization located in Jamaica.
I love creating and working on non-profit websites.
I love giving back using my Website a Graphic Design skills this way.
Things I designed on this website that were a bit different:
1.) Used a introduction video that we uploaded into YouTube.
2.) Designed a background image with photo links.
3.) made square photo collage along the bottom.
4.) Set up a donation button and links to take donations.

SRB Painting Contractor…
…website that I designed for a Painting Contractor in the Phoenix area.
One of the first things I did when I knew I was going to design this website, was to set up a trade with another company who I designed a website for called, Aero Drone Visions and had them come out to a house painting project that SRB was working on and shoot aerial drone video and still images of them working.
The video was made with background music and loaded up on to YouTube and then placed the video on the website.
I think it turned out very impressive.
All the videos that we load up on YouTube, Vimeo and Social Media, have extensive SEO to so they will be found by search engines independ of the website.
Remember YouTube is owned by Google so SEO is a big deal to them and is integrated in all internet browsers.
We showed a lot of before and after images to help people get a feel for the painting work this company does.
We also had many preperation how-to blogs written ahead of the website being published to give authority to what this company knows how to do and why.

CG Photo and Design…
…is another website that I designed for a portrait and wedding photographer.
This one is very different from the other photographer in the way it looks and feels.
The website definitely has a feminine touch to it.
Half way down you will encounter 6 photographs that will link to the different types of photography that she offers.
Each of these images are offset from each other and bounce up when you scroll to give it a feeling of motion.
The photo galleries on each of the pages are also very different and show off her work very well when you click the individual images.
We also made a blog representation of the last three blogs on each page that talks about that photo shoot with a featured image, title and description.

Website and Graphic Design…
…I designed this website to promote my freelance Website and Graphic Design business.
Even though I will not be doing much freelancing anymore, I am still proud of this website I created.
I used it to promote my website design skills as well as my SEO (search engine optimization) no-how so people and businesses can be found on the internet.
I also used it to promote my Graphic Design skills in the way of making logos, flyers, books, newsletters, trifolds and postcards.
I have enjoyed working with people on a one-to-one basis and look forward to doing more of it for a company that might hire me to do this work.
