summary

After having developed the previous version of Martin Furniture's website in 2013, Martin returned for a site-wide overhaul in 2016. Working with the lead designer and the head of sales, the website was updated, with standardized product information to include features, materials, and finishes. A product filter was also added to allow easier sorting and navigation of their product catalog, along with streamlining the code base, and updating their custom CMS. As part of the next phase, a shopping cart system is currently being developed, which will allow Martin Furniture to sell close out items directly to consumers.

S.K.O.P.E. — Spectrum Kitchens On-line Pricing Estimator

summary

Spectrum Kitchens, a large-scale cabinet designer and manufacturer, needed to replace their aging Excel-based estimation software to a more feature rich, user friendly, web-based application. This project was an enormous undertaking which required learning the intricacies of their estimation procedure and current software, conceptualizing a database, designing a UX, and working closely with users to ensure that no functionality was overlooked. The result was an application which was an order of magnitude more efficient than their previous solution, allowing estimates to be generated in a fraction of the time. By hosting the application in the cloud, multiple users are now able to work on an estimate at the same time and access the system from anywhere. This is a private application, please request a demo

When one of my oldest, closest friends announced that he was running for public office, he needed help with his on-line presence. After setting up a basic page with NationBuilder.com, I worked on branding his campaign. This included creating a color scheme, designing a logo, and working within NationBuilder's platform to implement the style guide. Colin's on-line presence far out-paced his competition and as a result, he is now the newest member of the La Mesa City Council.
