Community Growth Web - Coeur d'Alene, ID

Listen, Listen, Listen
The most important idea in web design. What is it that YOU want?

I build sites that match your market and your priorities. Wordpress or not, color, font and style choices are very different between each site because the individuals I've worked with - well, they want what they want!

I present options and we synergize.

The list below is not updated to current portfolio; still working on redesigning the entire site. I'm now building wordpress files from scratch along with using other technologies/systems as well as helping to "unwind" problems that clients have with existing websites.

I just want your business or organization to be successful and use my background in programming and user-interface design to help make it so. Please contact me if you want some help working with your project.

Site Information
CDA Pet Resort

CDA Pet Resort

CDA Pet Resort wanted to update their website. I added a slideshow for them of their awesome pet resort and created custom navigation links so that site visitors would see a visual of the link. There are several forms on the site as well.

This is a custom Wordpress site.

Inland Northwest Food Network

Inland Northwest Food Network

Inland Northwest Food Network is a new non-profit organization in Coeur d'Alene. We created a template for what the site would look like. I used that to create this Wordpress Site actual site.
They edit the website themselves using some plugins that I recommended to meet their needs. In the last year or so, this site has had a major shift and now is mobile-responsive.

Clear Tech, Inc.

North Idaho Eye Institute

Clear Tech, Inc. is an international site that has hundreds of informative pages about how to create energy.

They wanted to update their site to a WordPress site that would be easy to edit.

I set up the site and the tools to enable them to re-build their site and helped them maintain their existing site while the WordPress site was being built.

Louisa Curley

Louisa Curley - In Harmony Bodywork

Louisa Curley is a Jin Shin Jyutsu practitioner. She wanted a website for her business in Monterey County. This is an html site.

Best BioChar Kiln

North Idaho Eye Institute

Best BioChar Kiln wanted to build a website with a little help. I provided the support needed to get the website up and running and created videos that are in YouTube and embedded on the site.

Portrait of a Town

Portrait of a Town

Portrait of a Town is a project envisioned by a local artist, Barbara Mueller, who created videos of 180 people/couples who hold the history of the Coeur d'Alene community. The database I designed enables the photo pages to be slowly populated and then each image to be linked to a dynamically created, individual page for each photo.

This site also features a "tag cloud" of categories that enables people to take in a large amount of groupings in a single look. This approach was needed to help users see all the categories without having to sort through a really long list.

Harmony Yoga Teacher Training

North Idaho Eye Institute

Harmony Yoga added yoga teacher training to their program and wanted a different look for that very-different part of their teaching.

I worked with the owner to come up with an entry page that takes people into the site.

Evolution and Consciousness

Evolution and Consciousness

Evolution and Consciousness is a blog set up in Wordpress. I set up this site for the owner so he could promote a book and a comtemplative retreat center. I also designed and created the header based on our conversations. Evolution and Consciousness. Even though he is not currently active on this site (last post 2012), I still love this graphic!

Greater Spokane Substance Abuse Council

Greater Spokane Substance Abuse Council

GSSAC is a non-profit organization in Spokane, WA that works to prevent substance abuse and violence in Spokane County. They were dissatisfied with their existing website and wanted to add content. They also wanted some more color in their site that would make it want people to stay there and look around. With 50 pages on their site, they needed to organize it in such a way that people could find what they were looking for. I designed the header and suggested the font. GSSAC.

International Eye Institute

International Eye Institute

International Eye Institute is a non-profit organization whose primary purpose is to provide adult and pediatric eye care and surgery to people of impoverished regions around the globe. For the header of this site I used an impressive photo that they had of a volcano in Guatemala and superimposed some photos onto the image to showcase their professionalism and personal caring.

The colors I chose produce a striking result and also match the beautiful colors that are indicative of the region. I put together a slide show of their photos and am working with the staff to get some subtitles. I've left numbers under each photo to make it easier for the staff to match the subtitle with the photo. International Eye Institute.

Living Springs Assisted Living Home

Living Springs Home

Living Springs Assisted Living Home houses 14 seniors that need help. They had no website before and wanted to redo their Logo. To keep costs in line I created the logo from some images from a stock photo site I use and then came up with some interesting fonts, colors and filters for the actual letters used in the Logo. Living Springs.

A Day On The Lake

A Day On The Lake Website

A Day on the Lake was a from-scratch update on an existing website. The company owner wanted a website that showed many of the different activities that could be done with the boat and jetski rentals available. She also wanted to showcase her vacation rentals. I created the photo collage for the header. Since she wanted to be able to add the text herself to the pages, I gave her access to all the pages via the content management system I provide my clients. Because they want to be ranked highly in Google searches, I started a pay-per-click ad program for them that they activate in the summer.

Healing Waters Center

Healing Waters Center

Healing Waters Center provides services to their clients that help them bring balance and well-being to their lives. They did not have a website so we worked together to create a navigation and look that worked for them. They want to manage the content themselves so I gave them access to a content management system that is very easy to use and free. Healing Waters Center.

Gathering Thyme Ministries

Dreamscape Consciousness Website

Gathering Thyme Ministries is a new website. The owner wanted a website that helps people see all the ways that she can be of service. I suggested that we have different headers for each different type of activity she does. I found some images in IStockPhoto that she selected from and she had a local artist create an image for the Reiki section. The left side of the header (about 20% from the left) is one we purchased and then I added some artwork to help the header span across the page.

Angela Marie Project

Angela Marie Project

Angela Marie Project is Angela Marie singer/songwriter (and friends) who wants a website to direct interested parties to so they can sample her songs and see where the next gigs are. She needed something up very fast with an expectation that the complete site would be ready when her position in my queue came up. I was able to, with her ideas and photos, build a site that was satisfactory for her in a day. When we worked on the final site, I created a flash animation header for the first page and created a photo collage for that header and photo collages for unique headers for other pages. The slide show is an attractive addition that scrolls through images on its own or can be manually controlled. The videos on her site showcase the band.

Golf Free Cancun

Golf Free Cancun

Golf Free Cancun is a new site. Diane and Jerry Shriner wanted to offer their VIP Founding Membership in the Palace Resorts with Certificates for Unlimited Golf. Diane and I designed the look and feel of the site. She did a lot of the keyword identification herself after we discussed an SEO strategy.

Fullwiler Dental

Fullwiler Dental

Fullwiler Dental had a website they were not happy with and wanted a revised version with a new domain name. They wanted a background that showed the Coeur d'Alene Lake. I took a photo and animated birds flying across the stylized name. They also wanted a slideshow on the front page. The Flash header becomes a standard jpg if the browser does not have Flash enabled (as is true with IPad and IPhone). The team at Fullwiler Dental want to project a professional feel but also want to showcase their friendliness and their playfulness. There are some photos of their beautiful office as well as some playful photos and animation. JavaScript is used throughout the site to enable a lot of questions and answers to be displayed "above the fold".

The Leather Works

The Leatherworks Website

The Leatherworks had a website for many years they were not happy with that did not have a shopping cart. We worked together to design a site using their existing logo with a color scheme that matched some of the colors in the logo as well as the browns that match most of their leather products. We shot some videos, put them on YouTube and embedded them on their site. We also put a shopping cart on their site that has cart admin that allows them to make their own product additions and deletions. Now they can come to their store in Coeur d' Alene, ID and just check their email to find what products have been ordered and immediately ship them out to customers.

Harmony Yoga Studio

Harmony Yoga Studio

Harmony Yoga Studio redid their existing site. the site features custom fonts and a watermark of bamboo in the right sidebar as well as a slideshow on the home page to draw in new visitors.

I installed an on-line scheduling and payment program on their site (MindBody online). The owner needed technical help to install it and get it customized to match her needs.

Whether you want to develop a new website, redesign an existing website or maintain your website, I strive to "handle it all" for clients and not require them to go elsewhere to find people to do the different pieces needed for their site.

Whether you require photo creation and editing, video creation and editing, a shopping cart, or design work, I can help you.

Every time you look at your website, I want you to love it!
