NetCo Dance Company

NetCo Dance Company is based Lancaster, PA. The design, photography and content were provided by AMC Design and I provided the development to bring the site to life. HTML5, CSS were used to lay out and style the site. jQuery was used for the sticky navigation, scrolling effect and dancer bios. The site is a one-page design, but each section can be easily edited in WordPress as a separate page. I used PHP to load each page's content onto the main page.

The Elite Coach site was designed and developed by Synapse Marketing Solutions. I worked closely with Synapse's creative director to design the site using Photoshop comps. The site is managed in WordPress by Elite Coach's staff using an easy-to-edit custom theme that I created. I also trained members of Elite's staff for general WordPress usage along with updating specific areas of the site. HTML5 and CSS3 were used for layout and jQuery was used for several animated and sorting features.

Badorf Shoe Company

Badorf Shoe Company distributes several brands of children's shoes throughout the US. As an employee of Synapse Marketing Solutions I was part of a team that created Badorf's website. I created the layout of the site using HTML5 and CSS3, the parallax effect using a jQuery plugin. The homepage shoe hover animation was accomplished using image maps and jQuery. I used media queries to make the site responsive and created a separate mobile site for devices that are smaller than a tablet. I also added the PHP contact form and each shoe's features page, including an interactive photo pointing out the notable features. The site uses progressive enhancement to take advantage of new technologies for current browsers while degrading gracefully for old browsers. The site won Best in Class for Retail at the 2013 Interactive Media Awards.

The site was rigorously tested and supports many platforms from desktop to mobile and also legacy browsers back to Internet Explorer 7. While working at Synapse Marketing Solutions, I was part of a team that was focused on this site and helped contribute to almost all assets. The site is managed by VFCC's staff using the Sitefinity Content Management System. When it came time to hand the site off to the client, I wrote documentation and provided training for editing.
