Steve Adams, Photography
Another very beautiful—yet very simple—artist website I did with Acme Graphic Design.

This one is a photographer, so lots of big photos. We went with muted greys, almost-black, and white for this site to keep from overwhelming the great photographs.

Melanie Warsinske - Contemporary Abstract Artist
This is one of the series of artist websites I've been doing with Acme Graphic Design.

I especially like Melanie's work, with the unusual materials she incorporates into her paintings. And I like how the website showcases her paintings without distracting in any way.

Gale Gatto, Fine Art Photography
Gale Gatto's award winning photography is a product of her unique perspective and her techniques for capturing light. From a young age, Gale has been captivated by art and the beauty which surrounds us. With photography, she learned how to capture the glory of the natural world; continually challenged by the concept of transferring ideas and perceptions onto paper.

My esteemed colleague, Jeannette Stutzman, of Acme Graphic Design, did the design work on this elegant site.

Friends of the Electric Fountain
After delighting generations of Denver citizens and visitors with dramatic water displays and dynamically changing colored lights at night, the Prismatic Electric Fountain in Ferril Lake at Denver City Park fell into disrepair, reduced to an unchanging display of water. Eventually even that display was shut down and the fountain was seemingly forgotten.

The Friends of the Electric Fountain was formed by Larry Kerecman to assist the Denver Department of Parks and Recreation to help bring this wonderful source of great family memories back to life.

This site was a particular joy to work on. It includes several fun features such as the interactive "water features" page, as well as a full suite of content management modules to ensure dynamic, up-to-date information on the daily operation of this Denver landmark.

Tuskegee Top Gun
James H. Harvey, III was an original Tuskegee Airman who flew P-51 Mustangs with the 332nd Fighter Group during WWII. He then went on to fly F-86's and other jets during the Korean Conflict. In 1949 he was one of three Primary Members of the 332nd Fighter Group Weapons Team that competed in the "First Ever" USAF Weapons Meet at Las Vegas Air Force Base. They won that event becoming the "First Top Guns."

This website is an important educational resource detailing the history of the Tuskegee Airmen, as well as providing the only place to purchase one-of-a-kind collectible merchandise.

Colorado Freedom Memorial
Dedicated to honoring the memory of all fallen Colorado heroes, regardless of branch of service or conflict, The Colorado Freedom Memorial will be constructed during 2009 on a site near Buckley Field. An integral part of that project is the collection of the names, ranks, and other information for all Colorado residents who have made the supreme scrifice for their country. This is to be accomplished primarily through the online database on their website.

Starting with a beautiful new logo designed by nationally known aviation artist, Joe Jones of Art Works Studio, I designed this website to be fast, flexible, and allow for quick access to a large amount of information, as well as providing several interactive features to encourage the participation of the public in this important project. I also developed an extensive, web-based "admin" section which allows for easy site updates and database management.

One of my favorite parts is the Memorial Honoree graphic under the logo which displays the name, rank, hometown, and conflict of a randomly selected honoree from the database.

North Shore Rentals Network
This was the first of two Cold Fusion database projects I did for a real estate developer in Massachusetts. The original site was both poorly designed and virtually non-functional. The intent was a website where available rental properties could be listed along with pictures and descriptions, all maintained by office staff having no experience with HTML or other web technologies.

Here is a partial list of improvements I was able to make:
  • new, simple but professional graphic design
  • cross-browser support
  • redevelop the underlying database structure to allow for easier maintenance and unlimited scalability
  • reorganize and restructure the registration and property listing process to allow realtors throughout the area to use the site
  • provide a web-based front-end application enabling non-webmasters to upload photographs and floorplans to the site and display them with their property listings
  • develop a powerful search tool for end-users of the site

The new site is easy to use for both realtors and renters and presents a professional and competent public image.

The Tannery Mall
The second of two Cold Fusion database projects I did for Hall and Moskow in Massachusetts. The original site was poorly designed and very difficult to use for both the mall management company and the store owners. The site was set up so business owners in the mall could enter their hours of operation, business description, contact information, upload their logo graphic and generally maintain their own web page.

Here are some of the improvements I was able to make:
  • updated graphics without frames
  • improved cross-browser support
  • redevelop the underlying database structure to allow for easier maintenance and unlimited scalability
  • reorganize and restructure the user interface to make it much easier to use
  • provide for dynamically generated META tags for the individual businesses to improve the search engine placement for each business in the mall

The new site is much more easily maintained and updated and has become a valuable tool for both the mall and the individual business owners.

Crested Butte Airport
This was a completely new design I did for this small Colorado mountain airport that is struggling to survive against the best efforts of a local land developer who is trying to close the airport so that he might build houses on the land.

The original website was built by a pilot using whatever software he could lay hands on and suffered from all of the usual problems, including:
  • serious "code-bloat"—the original home page was 27K, the new home page is 9K
  • low-quality, non-optimized graphics
  • hard-coded page width—the new design reflows to fit the available window size
  • disorganized and inconsistent site structure—I worked closely with the owner of the airport to organize a large amount of information into a consistent and easily navigable structure
  • an almost complete inability to update the site—in June of 2003 the home page was still advertising the 2001 fly-in! I was able to reorganize and clean up the code to a point where news items, new photos, and whole new pages can be added to the site with minimal effort.

The new site presents a professional and competent public image and allows quick and easy access to important information.
