Here is an academic consulting website design for Cardinal Academic Consulting out of Fox Point, WI.
Project Move Coaching is a Colorado Springs based company. Founder William Whitman, is a master practitioner, I use numerous methods that include SCOPE assessment, Energy Leadership Index surveys, self-perception charts, and core energy coaching methods, which help clients uncover what drains their energy and prevents them from achieving their goals and reaching their full potential.
Our goal for this website was to create a beautiful and elegant design that expressed a sense of professionalism and taste with William. We needed to show the audience that William followed his own words of wisdom. That guidance that allows each of us to reach our greatest potential. After all, how can you help shape someones life when your own is in turmoil. You can’t. So we built a site that proudly promoted Williams beliefs systems within the structure of his own life. The user can easily navigate their way around the website while picking up a few helpful tips along the way. The call-to-actions guide the user to schedule a free consultation with William. The scheduling system notifies William of the appointment, while automatically scheduling him into his Google calendar. The user also receives a follow up email and reminders as the they near the appointment date.
Anion USA is a Colorado Springs based company. They sell high-end extraction pumps within the cannabis industry.
Our goal for this website was to promote the quality and value of the extraction pumps Anion USA is selling. Just looking at the extraction pumps, you can see the quality of craftsmanship that went into producing these machines. Nothing was left to chance as they truly look like a piece of art. We needed to create a site that would mimic that same craftsmanship. Clean, elegant, and bold was what we were after. Being that these machines sell for upwards of $60K, the client had no intention of creating an eCommerce site. They just needed to proudly promote the extraction machines using beautiful photography and great descriptions.
Here is a photography website design. My friend Joy is an excellent baby and maternity photographer out of Colorado Springs. She came to me inquiring about revamping her WordPress website with the intention of creating a better looking portfolio presentation and getting more leads. We created a simple masonry style photo gallery and some call-to-action buttons that would direct the user to contact Joy. Done and done.
Just finished mocking up a roofing website design for Roof leak Investigators. This site is designed to be very simple and user friendly. Our objective for this site is to promote the companies professional and experienced services without boring or overwhelming the audience with too much text. Just need to get the user to contact them. Most of the content will lie in the “FAQ” and “About Us” page. We will utilize the built-in blog to grow SEO and drive traffic to the site.
We’ve been working with an investing company out of Plano, Texas. They’re restructuring their business and need to promote their bold new ideas. So we’re designing a new investing website for them, here is our first concept. I’m sure there will be plenty of changes to come as we dive a bit deeper into this project. It’s nice to have a first draft though, this gives us a frame of reference as well as a sense of direction.
I always have my clients send me a Word doc with a complete breakdown of the site, including the content for each page. Even then it can be tricky some times to make sense of what the client is actually wanting. So putting together a template in Adobe Illustrator gives us and the client a better idea of what the site is going to look and feel like. We can hammer out all the tweeks rather quickly prior to actually building the site in WordPress. This saves us time and usually a headache or two.
Heroes Home Care out of Colorado Springs asked us to put together a website design mockup for them. Below is my breakdown of the homepage along with a JPEG mockup. All images are temporary fillers but you get the idea. Designing sites in Illustrator, prior to actual construction, is a great way get a good visual reference of the direction you’re going to go in. It can also save you a ton of time. Work smarter, not harder ding-dong.
Header – Logo followed by call-to-action on the left
Menu – Services will have a sub menu for the services offered.
Main photo – This area can be a slider to navigate through various images or services offered however I don’t think it’s necessary. I like the single image with your logo and slogan, along with another call-to-action. I imagine the audience isn’t going to be too tech savvy, simple is better. This image is nice, would be better with a senior veteran in place of the elderly lady.
About us – Simple message that lets the audience know what you do and the area you serve. This will help with SEO as well.
Services – Simple and direct, each image will link to a separate page about each service with detailed information.
Testimonials – We can rotate out new testimonials as needed, this is great for building trust with new clients.
Call us today – Another call-to-action (I use the word call instead of contact because I know how important it is to have that personal experience with someone and emails just don’t deliver). I think you’re more likely to get someones business by making it personal.
Footer – Another logo for brand awareness with a short description about your business. Followed by navigation and contact info.
Out of the goodness of my heart, and being that the boys that run the Bud Cup Hockey Tournament are so generous to me, I offered to design a website for them. They don’t really have any online presence to promote this hockey tournament so I thought it would be a nice idea to put them on the map. Below is a JPEG mockup of the hockey website I designed. I did use the Budweiser logo for a bit of influence on the website layout. Not a lot of imagery, just some cool graphics. The actual site is already underway as I type. Should be wrapping up in the next week or so.
The logo concept is based off the new Bud Light logo, the new Budweiser logo and the old Budweiser logo. I didn’t want to completely rip off Budweiser, but I think it turned out pretty nice. Clean and simple, nothing to flashy and nothing to contemplate. It just works. I also used the old time AB crest, it adds a nice touch and helps to push the Budweiser theme a bit more.
