I had the pleasure once again of working with Matt Hill of MacGroup USA to create a WordPress blog for one of their clients, the Sekonic Company, a premier manufacturer of photographic light meters.

The site also uses advanced CSS3 properties to create rounded corners, drop shadows and transition effects
Oradell Animal Hospital of Paramus New Jersey is one of the largest and best animal and pet care centers in the world. But its website was old and they were losing the graphics designer who did their updates. Their marketing director was looking for new ways to connect with their current clients and customer base. I recreated their current site’s structure and design in Wordpress with custom page templates, adding social sharing and other functionality with plugins, shortcodes and widgets.
I just finished this site for Joyce Cordi, a management and business consultant based in San Jose, California.

I used a combination of custom page templates and shortcodes for her new WordPress website.
I just finished a major project for Tom Watson, author of CauseWired, converting his website, onPhilanthropy.com, from a custom CMS to Wordpress.
