Fairfield Farm

Role: Freelance designer and developer

I created a new online brand identity for Fairfield Farm, a family-owned and operated farm located in Park Hall, Maryland. The main goals of the project were to make it easier for the farm’s customers to learn more about the products available and where to buy them. As part of the project, I created an information architecture based on the type of content that customers have requested in the past. In addition, I completed a content inventory to review the existing offline content and map it to the new information architecture, designed wireframes that show the user flow through the new website, and created a design that highlights the farm’s products.

American Journal of Criminal Law

Role: Freelance designer and developer

I designed and developed a new website for the University of Texas School of Law’s American Journal of Criminal Law (AJCL). The goal of this project was to create a new website design that better showcased new content created by the AJCL as well as provided an easier way to post new content and better workflow controls. The website is built on WordPress, allowing the journal’s staff to manage content updates on their own. It is built based on the Thematic framework with custom functionality that I developed to meet the specific needs of the journal. For instance, there are custom widgets built into the design to showcase the most recent posts and journal issues based on the tags used to categorize content within the site. The website also incorporates jQuery as part of the login control.

The Captain Kelly Cheseldine House

Role: Freelance designer and developer

I designed and developed a website for The Captain Kelly Cheseldine House, which is an outdoor venue for weddings and small receptions. The goal of the project was to create a new online presence for the venue that highlights the history of the property and makes it easy to submit a reservation inquiry to the business owners. I used the owner's existing branding to design and build a website that would complement their marketing materials and used Search Engine Optimization (SEO) techniques to ensure that the website appears in the top of search engine results pages (SERPs). The website was built using HTML, CSS, ASP.NET, and jQuery.
