Some familiarity with
While at Vipa Solutions, I worked in conjunction with ad agency Swanson Russell to provide a new web site for Runza,
a large regional fast food chain. Swanson Russell provided the creative and branding, and I built the site from the ground up
levels deep and related on different levels.
ActivationHUB was an experiential marketing tool built by Activation Insights. This tool
helped link agencies, companies and brand ambassadors to record data from marketing events.
I helped to style and develop this app by creating wireframes and new UIs, and integrating
third party services via APIs.
Front-end Development / UI Design
While at Vipa Solutions, I was able to assist our sister company VentureTech in developing
a web app for a new client, Styleshack. Styleshack was looking to combine boutiques and online shopping
in a unique online marketplace by letting people take a quiz to determine their style "archetype". StyleShack
provided many styling challenges as we were provided few design mockups, so my team and I came up with a lot of the
UI design on the fly. This web app provided a good opportunity to explore different image solutions, as the
site is very image heavy and product photography needed to be high quality. The dynamic filters were also a
fun challenge to take on.
Since I joined the Intellicom team, I've had the pleasure of delving back into
design. I created the Pathology Services skin from scratch and developed it in the
DotNetNuke platform using modules the customer was familiar with using.
While at Vipa Solutions, I worked in conjunction with my team to provide a new AmerisourceBergen-themed site. As we had several
existing ABSG sites, this was a fun exercise in creating an almost pixel-perfect sister site to the other
ABSG companies while still staying true to the unique features needed for this business. The most challenging part in coding
this site was recreating the "Insights" section, where the company resources are filtered by type and are gated
by a form to allow download.
At Vipa Solutions, I worked to provide a new web site for Immanuel Communities,
a family of assisted living communities. The creative and branding was provided to us,
this was one of my favorite sites to develop as the designs provided were clean and detailed.
All the communities were structured in a database to allow easy updating for the client.
As a developer at Gravity Works Design and Development, I had the pleasure to work with
the Michigan eLibrary group to create a new, fun web site for their patrons to explore.
My team put together a kid-centric design and I implemented in a CMS that many libraries
use called LibGuides. We were proud to get a shout-out on social media from LibGuides themselves upon
the launch of the site. This site was a great exercise for me in working directly with the
client to get down to exactly what they needed.
While working at Gravity Works, one of my first full projects was to handle the front-end development
of the Wisconsin Interscholastic Activities Association web site. This site was built in DNN (formerly DotNetNuke)
and required a lot of paring down and reorganizing data. Even so, we ended up several layers deep in subpages, requiring
special consideration for how submenus and subpage content might be handled. This was also an exercise in working with the client to mitigate scope creep and come up with an end product that made
both client and agency proud.
