screen-shot 2015-11-04 at 11.51.25 AMFor this site, I chose a responsive Bootstrap 3 SASS WordPress theme, originally developed for TEDxToronto. I made a few tweaks and improvements to better fit our event, and worked with April Cox from UT Chattanooga to dial in the design and architecture. Developed on an Amazon EC2+Ubuntu+Webmin server running a Nginx+MySQL+PHP-FPM stack, the site should handle plenty of traffic, and can be scaled up to meet spikes in demand coinciding with the event.

Love Open Source software, but hate the generic branding? No problem. It’s very simple to create a fully-branded login screen for WordPress and Webmin/Virtualmin, to match a client’s logo and color scheme.

Lula Lake Land Trust needed a quick website update to replace a neglected site that had been dormant for years. I chose WordPress with a Bootstrap theme for quick and flexible development, and generated a color palette using the Lavish Bootstrap color scheme generator.

This is a great example of a site that can come together in mere days, look great, and function well on every device from desktop to tablet to smart phone.

Mark Making is a Chattanooga non-profit with a mission to enhance the town with public art and to engage the public in the creation and production of art, not merely it’s appreciation or exhibition.

This project was yet another “rescue effort” to save a dying website that had been abandoned by a previous developer. Knowing how artists can be very particular about visual design and information architecture, I was a little apprehensive to take on this project… but I soon found some new PHP and JavaScript code to make WordPress behave as desired.

  • Search Engine Optimization
  • Fancybox JavaScript modal windows for YouTube, image slideshows, audio, video and PDF
  • Google Web Fonts for a handcrafted look
  • Advanced Custom Fields for intuitive addition of media player icons and project metadata
