Graphic Design for a Coupon Magazine in Marin Country

Friday, May 01, 2015
Keeping Up with IAMTEEJAY

It has been a very long time since I took on a print and graphic design project of this magnitude, but what better way to get to know your community and the businesses within. Melissa Greenberg came to me with a need to help her design her next edition of the Finest Coupons of Marin Magazine. With a collection of 22-pages and 33 advertising customers, I will manage and update the ads from a previous issue, collect instructions for new ads from new customers, put together the spread using PhotoShop, Illustrator and InDesign, collect review and approvals from clients, and submit the final product to the printers. For the first time in many years, there is not a single line of code involved - a breath of fresh air.

Are You A Working Parent? Mom Ready Is Here For You

Monday, April 27, 2015
Keeping Up with IAMTEEJAY

Elisa Taub has been a long-time client of Site 51, my family’s former hosting service. As the service was shut down, I had to transfer many of the remaining customers to other services. The Mom Ready site was the ultimate Business Catalyst client, as a multi-blog themed site was required. We will be transferring all of her blog posts from the old server and designing a fully responsive website to relay her message to all of the parents out there, especially working parents.

Local Client, National Client, Corporate Client

Tuesday, April 21, 2015
Keeping Up with IAMTEEJAY

I am very pleased to announce the launch of Pacific Coast Chemical Company’s new website. The company, based out of Berkeley, with 17 locations across the country, had been using a very expensive and out dated online database service that was costing them an insubordinate amount of money on a monthly basis. By providing them with a site which offers not only what they had before, but also the commerce-ability at a fraction of the cost on the Business Catalyst platform, we couldn’t be happier. At the completion of the project, and after providing my free 1-hour admin training services to their staff, they are managing the site on their own with success. Not having to provide any additional services tells me that I have completely fulfilled the client’s needs. I have done this before with Job Journal’s* Job Resource and HireEvents sites. This doesn’t make me sad, or less successful, but it does make me feel proud that I did the job right.

MrMind Returns to the Small Screen for a Little AI History

Tuesday, April 21, 2015
Keeping Up with IAMTEEJAY

Yes, this project was definitely one for the annals of computer history and I am glad to be a part of it. MrMind, a humble chatbot, conducts The Blurring Test, a timely reversal of the Turing Test. Since 1998, MrMind has challenged visitors to the site to convince him that they are human and so far, no one has. MrMind's creator, Peggy Weil, suggests that a new definition of human is in order: Who or what do we think we are in relation to our creations? As Peggy was giving another presentation of the application she developed in the late 90’s, she had problem. The MrMnd website was in Flash and unpresentable. Under a tight time-constraint, using both my knowledge of the Flash application and new technologies, my job was to redesign the site so that it was presentable on all devices. However, my challenge, upon Peggy’s request, was to mirror the animation within Flash and have it play out in the HTML environment utilizing a combination of Javascript, J-Query and CSS4.The extreme challenge was to make all of the animation responsive so that it played out well on all devices.

Passwords Made Easy+ by Peter Amendola

Friday, April 17, 2015
Keeping Up with IAMTEEJAY

Ok, you need to create a password, the dreaded word set of crazy characters you can't remember a week later. You have too many passwords that you need to keep track of. Correct? So you make a written list of these passwords. This list then becomes something you also need to protect because it represents everything you own, and do. There are several reasons why we cannot just have one, but that is not the focus here.

The Metamorphosis of Pamalita, a Domestic Abuse Survivor

Friday, April 10, 2015
Keeping Up with IAMTEEJAY

After a few about-faces and a change of plans, Pamalita and I finally found her path where she can begin to heal by sharing her knowledge and resources with others involved in domestic abuse. However, she takes it a little further as she sends out her message of education, empowerment and encouragement not just to survivors, but all of us, through her blog on her website. I had the opportunity to develop her brand, consult with her on some obvious business choices and create a beautiful website on the Business Catalyst platform.

A Fully Responsive Website Design for Los Angeles Landscape Architect, Lisa Gimmy

Tuesday, March 31, 2015
Keeping Up with IAMTEEJAY

The life of the website that Lisa Gimmy, a Los Angeles-based Landscape Architect, started with and the one she has today, reflects the typical progression of changes that most websites that were initially developed between 1999 and 2007 experienced over the years. Back in 2005, I was given the privilege of developing a Flash website for her, based on another designer’s layout. Then in 2011, as Flash was becoming obsolete, I managed to recreate the layout using HTML, CSS, J-Query and multiple pages. Today, I launched yet another version of her site, fully responsive and bundled with all the marketing tools that the Business Catalyst platform has to offer.

Simply Designed and Suited for the Needs of the Organization

Tuesday, March 31, 2015
Keeping Up with IAMTEEJAY

The Parole Officers Association of Contra Costa County (POACCC) had a simple site, which allowed their members to visit, access a secure area, and view information intended for members of the organization. However, the site was hard to update, access to the secured area was flawed and members seldom visited it. Being referred from long-time client State of California Organization of Probation Officers (SCOPO), I was hired to design and develop a simple and responsive website for the organization.

Andrea Cagan Promotes New Book, “Memoirs of a Ghost”, at Her New Site

Tuesday, March 03, 2015
Keeping Up with IAMTEEJAY

Thank you Steven Shmerler, of SASNet Design, for introducing Andrea Cagan to me back in 2004 and having me develop her first website in Flash. Her site lasted a good 11 years before she needed to upgrade it to promote her new audio biography “Memoirs of a Ghost: One Sheet Away”. In fact, she liked the design so much she wanted to retain as much of it as possible. Utilizing the Business Catalyst platform, responsive web design and having good content to work with, I created a site that I hope will last another 11 years for Andrea.
