Website Design

Below are links to some of the websites I’ve designed. If you are contemplating a website and don’t know where to start, I’ve written something that I think you will find helpful: Creating a Website – the Basics.

Website: Higher Standards Academy

I designed this website for Higher Standards Academy, a small company that offers SAT and ACT prep courses and private tutoring.  To avoid information overload on the home page, I designed the page so that extra information would stay hidden until the visitor clicks a “show more information button”.  We also used color coding to differentiate the different types of classes being offered.

Website: A Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Workbook

This website for a Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Workbook was designed to promote a workbook and accompanying audio CD. The website is based on wordpress so the authors can update the information on the various pages themselves.

We also set up a youtube, twitter and facebook page at the same time as the website and tied them all together.  The website automatically updates itself to include the authors articles which appear on other blogs and video blog posts they make on youtube. When new articles appear on the blog, notices are sent out to their facebook page and twitter feed. Their facebook page was set up to provide an interactive forum between the authors and people using the workbook, for guidance and inspiration.

Website: Awareness and Relaxation Training

I redesigned this website for Awareness Training and Relaxation Programs, a company that provides Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction programs, to create a more user-friendly interface that conforms to CSS web standards. I also implemented a paypal shopping cart for CD sales and add a macromedia flash audio player to play audio samples. All email addresses are encrypted to thwart email harvesting spam robots.

Website: Wild Coast Qigong

I designed this website for Wild Coast Qigong, group of Qigong teachers who study and teach under the guidance of Medical Qigong Master Bingkun Hu, a direct disciple of Grandmaster Yang, Mei-Jun, the originator of Wild Goose Qigong. The animated banner also functions as the website’s menu. An alternative graphical menu is displayed on browsers that support Adobe Flash.
