Time to Fall in Love and Dance Your Life Away

After discovering and appreciating my work with Andrea Cagan’s website, Carole Greenbaum came to me with a need to develop a site to promote her book, “The Forever Deal”. “The Forever Deal” is an inspiring story for anyone who has suffered loss through death, divorce or the simple demise of a once sturdy love affair. Carole is the epitome of grace as she picks herself up and ventures back into the world of relationships.

Los Angeles Ballet Celebrates Their 10th Anniversary

Los Angeles Ballet is celebrating the inauguration of their 10th season, and guess who has been with them since day one? I am forever grateful to Catherine Kanner, whom I was introduced to by my former partner in business, Jeremy Kidd at the Otis College of Art & Design in Los Angeles in 2000. With Catherine being the Los Angeles Ballet’s Design Director, I was fortunate to have her acquaintance from the very beginning. Over the years we would collaborated to design, develop and market the Los Angeles Ballet and its two sub-organizations of the School and Summer Course

What She Needs, Business Catalyst WebApps Can Provide

What She Needs, Business Catalyst WebApps Can Provide

Denise Kamena comes to me with a quest to build a member and database-driven website, at a fraction of the cost, utilizing the Business Catalyst platform. A few years ago I would have charged a big chunk of change for this site, but now with some experience working with the platform it is now time to test its limitations and offer it to her at an affordable rate. Denise, a personal care provider who often takes her clients to their doctor and dentist appointments, struggles to manage her notes that she needs to provide to their social workers who represent them. She would often write things down on a piece of paper, or notepad on her mobile device, only to either lose the notes or not have all the details in order. She spends more time on this aspect of her job than she would like to. My job is to solve that problem and develop a Business Catalyst WebApp to handle this task as efficiently as possible.

Introducing the California Drought Report with a Solution for Your Irrigation Needs

Frank Simonelli has been referring work to me for over 15-years now and I am forever grateful! This time he referred Galcon, Inc ., an Israel-based company that offers water conservation solutions through the use of their Cyber Rain water irrigation solutions and products. To follow up with their successful “Tell the Cloud” marketing campaign, they had me design, develop and deliver the components for their “California Drought Report” campaign. Setting up a three-pronged theme concept an email marketing campaign, I designed three templates for the email and their respective attached PDFs which mirror the content within the email itself.

Good Things Come in Three, at Need Three

After a successful collaboration deploying a website for Barrel House 101 of Ventura with Need Three, strategic partner Eugene Bustillos brings to my studio his Los Angeles customers The Pub at Chino Hills, and two new restaurants Souk Shawarma and Sucre. The Pub needs a revamp of its static, non-responsive WordPress website while the other two need new websites to launch their businesses. Need Three will be providing all the design, and I will be developing and publishing the websites on the Business Catalyst platform.

Need a Venice Beach, CA AirBnB in the Abbot Kinney Community?

Need a Venice Beach, CA AirBnB in the Abbot Kinney Community?

Jeremy Kidd, my former business partner, with Digidome Designs, has chosen to share his beautiful Venice Beach home for those in need of a fully furnished and beautiful accommodation with an artistic mix of upscale, modern furniture. Though still his personal home, he does offer the location for rental to a limited number of visitors per year. You get the privacy, generous space and comforts of a house for the price of an upscale hotel room. With this said, and though he has it listed at many AirBnB-type listing websites, he made the decision to market it through a website dedicated to his property rental. For expedition-sake, appeal, and Jeremy’s preferences the site takes on the look and style of his artist site jeremykidd.com. Both sites utilize the Business Catalyst platform. Check out this Venice Beach AirBnB rental property and consider booking it the next time you have business or leisure time in Los Angeles.

Graphic Design for a Coupon Magazine in Marin Country

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

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

Local Client, National Client, Corporate Client

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.
