CSS Zen Garden is an internet design project where web designers are challenged to design a web page using CSS. I selected Gutengerg's bible as a subject for this design to remind us of how much the technology of communication has changed since the invention of moveable type.
This design was influenced by the art of the Dutch painter Piet Mondrian whose artwork often consisted of a grid of vertical and horizontal black lines and the three primary colors. Throughout the design I also used the Golden Section, an aesthically pleasing formula often used by artists and architects obtained by using math and a value known as Phi.

sit-n-stay design 1
The goal here was to redesign the Home Page of a local small business. I selected Sit-n-Stay Pet Sitters because I am familiar with their business and know that their site could use a freshening-up. I was able to achieve a more professional look by eleminating unecessary design elements. Using a limited color palette enabled me to emphasize the cat and dog in the image.
sit-n-stay design 2
In the second design for this site I utilized a similiarly clean layout. This time I chose cute images to convey a happier, less formal look. My thought was to use the same pets in different poses on each internal page. The use of natural colors were selected because of their warm and welcoming feeling that a pet owner would associate with their pets.

Thechallenge for this exercise was to improve upon the design of an existing small online newspaper. I chose to build the site upon a twelve column grid, this allowed an improved reorganization of content, but also permitted a fair amount of flexibilty in the grouping of content. Color and placement were used for content emphasis. The result is a more intuitive, easier to navigate design.
I have had many roles in packaging development. These responsibilies have included managing complete product lines while collaborating with internal personell and outside vendors. I have also proven my ability to conceptualize and design in 3D, as well as successfully managing and art directing large photoshoots.
