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

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

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.

MrMind Returns to the Small Screen for a Little AI History

MrMind Returns to the Small Screen for a Little AI History

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

Passwords Made Easy+ by Peter Amendola

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

The Metamorphosis of Pamalita, a Domestic Abuse Survivor

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.
