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 Sekonic Blog uses a custom child theme derived from the Twentyten WordPress theme and incorporates Featured Images and customized excerpts to give post authors more control of what appears on the blog’s front page. 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. Joyce is passionate about politics and publishes podcasts speaking out about government waste and absurdities. She wanted a customized front page that pulled in content from her about and bio pages along with selected posts on various topics. 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. The new site, built on the Arthemia Premium theme, features modifications enabling it to carry ads from multiple sources, RSS feeds from companion sites and customized widget titles.

Humintell.com, a website project I worked on this past Spring for the Landsman Communications Group recently launched. Humintell is about Microexpression Analysis—the understanding of the underlying emotions of people by looking for universal facial expressions that flick on and off in less than a second. I built the Humintell website using Wordpress, modifying the Minimal theme to match the graphical design, typography and layout from graphic designer, Dean Meyers.

Tom Watson’s New Critics blog, had been hacked and he needed someone to rescue it. The site had been built on an old version of Wordpress and lived on a hosting service that Tom was no longer happy with. I was able to recover and export his content to rebuild the blog on a modern platform. Tom was back in business in a little more than a day.

This blog, subtitled: A Movement to Lift the Lid on Pennsylvania Government is an initiative of the Pennsylvania Newspaper Association. I did the blog installation and configuration using WordPress, adapting and modifying a third party theme. I worked under contract to Howard Greenstein who provided the association with the online strategy and training to make them bloggers. The project was conceived and designed by BravoGroup, a specialist in government communications.

The Partnership For Prescription Assistance, Pennsylvania, blog. The client wanted a three column design incorporating a Google Calendar listing events in the campaign. Building this site taught me how sidebars are generated in Wordpress. My favorite bit, however, is the ShareThis widget attached to the end of each post.

East-West Dialogue – Under subcontract to graphics designer, Michael Pinto, of VM.com, I installed and configured this content management system for The East-West Center. It primarily serves as the online companion to the print version of the organization’s signature magazine, East-West Dialogue. The design requirements were very specific featuring a custom navigation menu and different sidebars for the index pages and post pages.
