Music Emissions

Music Emissions

Music Emissions is the longest running website that I’ve worked on. It started out as a modest college project back in 1999 and has turned into a go to source for new indie music. I have chosen to use WordPress as a user management tool as well as a blog platform. There is a lot of customization on this site and most of the site is used outside of the regular WordPress framework, but making calls to verify users and logins all the time. There are different levels of users like subscribers and editors as well as administrators. Subscribers can add albums and “user reviews”. Editors are paid and can do blog posts as well as user reviews. Music Emissions is a full-fledged music community complete with a recommendation engine that recommends music based on your likes.

Calgary Midwives Cooperative

A new midwifery practice needed a website and fast. After creating a very simple site and intake form to get them started, I started on a more complex and nicer layout. I leveraged WordPress and found a perfect template to use. Once the site was created and the content was added they found that they needed an online appointment system to make things more manageable. I found a PHP script that plugs nicely into WordPress called HitAppoint. It fit the bill perfectly and now clients can book their appoints right online without having to call in. Another feature was to have a database store all of the intakes and then allowing administrators to edit the database directly, sort of like an Excel file.

Arts For Hope

I have done consulting work for a charity called The Sharp Foundation. When they came to me with a new idea for a charity called Arts For Hope I was excited. They wanted a one page website that showcased local artists as well as a piece that was being actioned off for the charity. I leveraged a local designer for the great layout. Then I used CSS positioning and HTML for the complex layout that the designer came up with. I utilized a lightbox feature that would allow a closer look at any art pieces that were displayed on the site.

Mermac Construction

Mermac is a Calgary based construction company. They had a very dated website and needed to be brought up to date. I looked after the design and development of the current implementation and have been asked to update it once again. I’ve used a Lightbox type image viewer for their portfolio. It is a nice way to showcase their fine workmanship.

Aarondale Paving

Calgary based paving company, Aarondale Paving just recently had a site developed. Their problem was that no one was finding it. They hired me to get them found in amongst all of the Calgary Paving searches that are done in the summer season. I ran a successful Google Adword campaign for them. They ended up with many new deals as a result of the Adword campaign.

Technolani

A new marketing company was looking for an online presence. They didn’t require a lot of functionality, just a clean and easy to navigate website. I believe I delivered.
