Here are some samplings of my work…

University at Buffalo Libraries

Visual Design, HTML5, CSS3, Responsive | July. 2012

This is the main website I maintain. I am currently working on the complete redesign. I expect the site to be fully completed by the mid 2013. The site has many different systems running on it like, Exlibris’ Aleph, OCLC’s ContentDM, VuFind, XTF (Finding Aids), various ASP databases and about 1500+ static HTML pages. The new design is responsive to support a wide range of mobile devices. The site was designed around the look and feel of the University web template. The body design was where we took some liberties.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Erie County

Visual Design, HTML5, CSS3 | July. 2012

As of Sept. 2012 I no longer support this site. But the design is still mine. The site was done with HTML5, CSS3 and WordPress. The organization now supports all the updating and code. I would have liked to have done it responsive, but just wasn’t enough time.

48 Good Books Project

Visual Design, HTML5, CSS3 | Mar. 2011

In cooperation with the UB Libraries, the UB Undergraduate Academies organized the Good Books project, a list of 48 good books which embody the mission and spirit of the three Undergraduate Academies: Civic Engagement, Global Perspectives and Research Exploration. I experimented with some new CSS3 properties and media queries. While I couldn’t spend a ton of time working on this site, I think it works for what the two University units were looking for.

U B libraries catalog

UB Libraries Catalog

Visual Design, HTML5, CSS3, Responsive | July. 2012

VuFind was chosen as our new catalog software at the UB Libraries. VuFind was developed at Villanova University and is an open source library catalog that can be linked to the Aleph backend. The interface was extremely easy to customize as it uses PHP Smarty templates and CSS. The catalog is now responsive to give mobile users a better viewing experience.

against the grain book

Against the Grain Book Design

Visual Design | Sept. 2012

Book design for Tim Bohen’s Against the Grain – The History of Buffalo’s First Ward. Tim has been writing this book for over 5 years now and working with him on this project was awesome. He was very open to ideas and the process was seamless. It’s easily one of my favorite projects I have worked on. The book turned out great and Tim has gotten a great response from the community.

Voip X

Visual Design | Sept. 2006

Voip X is a small company that sells Voice Over Internet Protocol. The company wanted the X in the name to be the main focus and wanted to stay clear of gray’s cause of their competitor’s use of gray in their identity. The client wanted to see a contrast in colors, so I choose a deep navy blue and a more vibrant yellow.
