Susan Cahalan needed some help getting her blog up and formatted nicely for her non-profit group Parents Against Climate Change. She basically was looking to make the site look decent and functional. It was very easy working with Susan, once I got the layout set for her and had her review some tutorials, she was off and running.
OK so this website is a few years old. My sister Kate turned 50 and I made this website for her as a surprise. Then made goofy tshirts for us that had the URL of the website on it.
This was a real quick and dirty project using the Thesis theme and the basic layout it comes with without much customization at all. Its pretty obvious its Thesis, if you know it, but it served its purpose and my sister was really surprised!

Patrick O’Toole of Ecology Recovery Systems in Worcester, MA needed a website for his company and for a new program they were starting to recover silver from X-ray films. I first designed a new logo for ERS then worked with Susan Ahern of build to develop this website in WordPress. Susan’s clean and colorful vision led to the final simple, clean and elegant design. The site includes customized areas such as forms for requesting a quote and scheduling X-ray pickups. It was a pleasure working with Susan and Patrick on this project.

Much functionality was added to the site to make it dynamic and accessible for their over 800 members.
It was a pleasure working on this project with Susan and Jennessa.

Providence Swings had a big swing dance weekend coming up that will pull participants locally as well as from other states. They wanted to get a site set up that would handle a number of functions usually done manually like online registration, housing requests, sponsors for housing, and maps of the area for accommodations and restaurants. The registration process required a tiered pricing system where the first bunch of tickets would be offered for the least amount and once sold out the next tier would kick in for the next group of slightly higher pricing for 5 tiers. We figured out a solution using Gravity Forms to handle this – really pushing this wonderful application to its limit, it pretty much handled it beautifully except for a couple of minor glitches.
Adam Dau created the wonderful graphics on the site and has really brought Providence Swings and this weekend event to a much higher level.
As usual, it was a pleasure working with Adam throughout the development of this project. Please check out their site and perhaps sign up for this weekend event or look for more in the future!
Adam Dau from Providence Swings was looking for a really dramatic change to their existing site, something to reflect the energetic and fun nature of the Providence based group of swing dancers. The group offers lessons, workshops and swing dance events in the Rhode Island area. The new look emerged from a number of designs when Adam pulled up his sleeves and revealed his amazing graphic design skills creating the vibrant and colorful header for the site and incorporated his graphics in other areas of the site. We also were able to tackle the challenge of how to handle their somewhat complicated registration process as well.
It was a pleasure working with Adam throughout the development of this project. Please check out their site and perhaps sign up for one of their dance sessions!
Michelle Cordani had a template website that was difficult to maintain and desperately needed structure, design, and a strong web presence for her nutritional health business Pure Intentions. Incorporating colors and images and moving content into an effective structure has allowed her website to more effectively communicate the focus of her business. Michelle works with clients to educate them on how to read food labels and make the right food choices to help you understand how to eliminate toxins in your life, lose weight, and bring balance to your life. She works closely with clients to cater to their specific needs whether its just a desire to improve energy, be better educated about food choices, or to lose weight.
Helen Rainoff was in need of a logo and website for her newly formed business Getting Centered Meditation. It was important to have the design incorporate more than just your typical lotus flower and ying yang icons as the meditation focus is on group meditation for organizations and people in the work place. This was something different, new, that should appeal to both the corporate level as well as the need of individuals to gain more focus and clarity in the course of their busy work days. The logo and design and look of the web site evolved through a number of revisions until we arrived at the final product which just works. Helen was a pleasure to work with and I so appreciate her thoughtful attention to detail through every step of the process.
My friend Mira of Whimsy Beads, had an old website which I had designed years ago that was time consuming to maintain as it was built. We moved everything over to a new WordPress installation, keeping the original design and simplifying the portfolio as she is selling most of her work on Etsy now. Now she will be able to update the gallery when she needs to add new designs and interface with her social media to keep her customers up to date with her shows and special events.

Ed Dolan finally found the time to look into a website for his busy Metrowest Boston building and remodeling business, Dolan Remodeling. As often is the case, clients know they need a website but just can’t find the time or right person to work with. I designed the logo and website to capture the wide range of experience that Dolan Remodeling offers. The extensive photo gallery showcases many of the diverse projects Ed has been involved with. I am glad he found the time to work with me on this project!
A redesign was in order for the Hopkinton Chamber website. Originally designed as a static HTML/CSS website, I moved the existing content into a brand new WordPress framework. Now members can make timely contributions to the site themselves with blog entries, event updates, and other important chamber business without waiting for me to put changes in for them. The net result is greatly improved communications to chamber members which had previously be lacking greatly.
Nancy Warren and Janice Welenc are both lifelong gardeners who have been designing gardens throughout the Boston area since 1990, yet they never found the time to put together a website. This was a delightful web project for me as I have benefited from their excellent garden design skills. We put their site up in time for some important jobs they were bidding on.
