State College Weblab

My new web design & development site
The new web design features HTML5 and CSS3 animations and effects.

I'm very excited about this design. I used HTML5, and CSS3 to do some animate some Victorian era drawings creating a stylistic  mash up of quaint home-town and SteamPunk for this site. I want so badly to reah the local market and most of the other developers in the State College area have very generic and corporate looking sites. Not certain who they are appealing to, maybe only big jobs, but I like working with the quick smaller gigs so that I can be creative designs and support the underdogs of the business world.

Check it out. With the animations, IE kind of flops, Chrome and Safari do great, and Firefox will do fine if your cache isn't too full.

State College Area Municipal Band

A new website for my band!
The Band's new website

I was accepted into the State College Area Municipal Band this fall, where I play in the trumpet section. The section has some really outstanding players, so I am learning a great deal and they keep me on my toes.

I developed the page as a kind of 'thank you' to the band.

homepage of the Crucible.

I am excited about this site. I have a vision of having a cooperative web environment where artists, writers, scientists, engineers etc bring out the best in each other. The Crucible will have a lot of dynamic content, a forum, and feature interdisciplinary activities at Penn State University. I hope to have it all zipped uo and open in the Fall 2011.

Sculpture Portfolio Site

Goal: A clean dignified portfolio
Portrait of Pastor Julius Rambo,
Sunshine Babtist Church, Kansas City, MO

After toying with larger more informative designs, I opted for a simple web portfolio site. I did add paypal links for some of my sculptures for sale by edition, Seems kind of tacky and I may remove them. Overall, I think this is a successful web portfolio.
