Grand Rapids Santa Parade

Grand Rapids Santa Parade

Grand Rapids Santa Parade Project Description The Grand Rapids Jaycee chapter contacted me to create a website for the annual Art Van Santa Parade that happens in downtown Grand Rapids at the end of November. I was hired to maintain the Santa Parade website the following year, but new web practices that emerged compelled me to scrap the previous year’s site and start over, making it failsafe for several years to come. Project Details Client Grand Rapids Jaycees Date November 11, 2014 Skills Website Development, WordPress View http://santaparadegr.com Site Features I created this site with future technology in mind, creating the site and graphics for use with Retina displays. The SEO presence of the previous sight was lackluster. Now, their site is at the top of search indexes. Completely Responsive Years ago I made the transition to creating all of my sites with responsive designs to accommodate for the growing number of devices that were accessing the Internet. I continued that tradition with this site, ensuring a consistent look no matter what you use to browse the Internet. What are you waiting for? Hire me! Name Email Address Message Message 14 + 1...
Joshua Vs The World

Joshua Vs The World

Joshua Vs The World Project Description This is a personal project of mine. I quit my full-time job to travel the world for a year and wanted a way for friends and family to be part of my travels. Lauren Warr designed the graphics and I built the site. This was one of the first WordPress only projects and provided a great learning opportunity. This is also the first site that I migrated over to WHL. I am now hosting client’s sites as an added source of revenue while still providing the support my clients have come to expect from me. Project Details Client Joshua Chagani Date September 14, 2014 Skills WordPress, PHP, cPanel WHM View http://joshuavstheworld.com Site Features Many of the site’s features came after the site was live. Support for Retina displays were added as well as image caching. This being one of my first WordPress only sites familiarized me with PHP, WordPress Plugins, and the flexibility, or lack thereof, with various themes. Responsive Design Not knowing where and when I’d be, it was important for me to have a consistent browsing experience, no matter the device I used to access the Internet. Making this site responsive was cumbersome since it was an afterthought. Implementing mobile-ready versions during initial development is a much more efficient approach. Needless to say the site is responsive and looks great. What are you waiting for? Hire me! Name Email Address Message Message 2 + 6...

E.S.C.A.P.E. Fire Safety

E.S.C.A.P.E. Inc. Fire Safety Project Description This was the first site that I created in WordPress. It was a steep learning curve since I was accustomed to coding everything by hand. I quickly learned the intricacies of WordPress and began to see how it’s more than a blogging platform. Retina images were added later and the site continues to evolve and grow. Project Details Client E.S.C.A.P.E. Inc. Date July 4, 2014 Skills WordPress View http://escapeinc.org Fire and Safety This site’s purpose is to inform the youth in West Michigan the dangers of fire and how to avoid firerelated injuries. It has an extremely active blog section with next content constantly being posted. This makes the site extremely topical and an active part in the community. Responsive Design I’ve been implementing and tweaking the responsiveness of this site after its inception. There are a few more adjustments to be made but the site functions pretty darn great on all devices. What are you waiting for? Hire me! Name Email Address Message Message 6 + 5...
