Johnny Cee

Johnny Cee

Goal Johnny Cee is a musician in Milwaukee, WI who I first heard on the album Dog Eared Dream by Willy Porter while I was in college.  The drums really stood out to me as being unique and expressive.  I actually had to learn one of the songs as a cover for a band I was playing in at the time and ended up playing along to the whole album just for fun.  I was instantly a fan of the band, and the drummer and have been ever since.  Many years later, I have come to know John and his......

Liv's Drink Emporium Craft Coffee Craft Sodas

Liv’s Drink Emporium

Goal My sister asked me to come up with the branding for her new business, "Liv's Drink Emporium".  My sister and her husband have five kids and they know how expensive it can be for a meal out. With that in mind, they keep our prices low. You can get drinks and snacks for your family at a price that would normally cost the price of a single meal at an upscale restaurant in town.  I wanted to present the Emporium as an upscale establishment and not portray it as a budget shop.  Just because the food is cheap doesn't......

Hello Cello

Goal Hello Cello wears a lot of hats!  Thea Vorass (my wife) offers cello lessons, studio sessions,  band promotion, booking, and social media management.  With all of these services, her website needed a cohesive look and easy to use interface to display her many services and talents. How I achieved it I talked to Thea about how she wanted the site to look and feel.  The lines of the cello are fluid and curved and we wanted to portray that throughout the design so I used this as the main design feature.  I had created her logo last year and......

Put Yourself In Their Shoes.

Growing up, a lesson I learned very early on was to “put yourself in other people’s shoes”.  This basically means to have empathy for other people.  The ability to feel empathy is a great asset to have when it comes to creating websites and user experiences.  As a developer, you can tend to get buried...

ProSale Nation Website

Instant Car Offers Logo and Website

PROSALE Nation LLC I created an identity for PROSALE Nation LLC where you provide your vehicle information, and they give you our offer on the same day.  I made the form as easy as possible to attain customer information keeping the site essentially one page.  Easy peasy.  I was also tasked with creating the identity for the company which I played off of the owner's military background, being that the mark resembled a peace symbol with an obvious automotive nod and you can't forget the happy face :)...

Childhood Cancer Research

Urban Autism Solutions

Goal The previous website was built with Wix.com.  The challenge was to learn the ins and outs of Wix and then improve upon the layout and user interface keeping consistent with the branding and overall established look of the Urban Autism Solutions materials.  The main focus of the website is to gain private donations as this is how the organization survives.  It's a non-profit that serves young adults with autism through integrated community programs. How I achieved it I was really impressed with the flexibility and the ease of use of Wix.com.  I was able to create custom post types......

Childhood Cancer Research

Childhood Cancer Foundation

Goal Cancer is the #1 cause of disease death for children in the United States, yet only receives 4% of funding. The goal was simple, to raise one million dollars for childrens cancer research. How I achieved it I created one time and monthly subscription donation forms that collect not only the donation amount, but also options to dedicate their donation in the memory of someone, include their name on a donation list or remain anonymous. These options are fed into the form and generated into a list of donors on the sidebar of the donation page and then translated......

Youth 2 Youth

Youth 2 Youth 4 Change

About The Project Youth2Youth’s mission is to reduce substance abuse among youth and promote healthy lifestyles through education and advocacy. I have been designing and coding their website since around 1999. The re-design called for two sites in one. This time around we wanted to make sure we translated everything for our Spanish students so we have a handy Spanish site. This isn't your ordinary Google Translate button, the pages are duplicated in WordPress with WPML. We had a native spanish speaker translate each page to ensure the translations were correct. We also added a brand new podcast where users......
