recent projects

launched three sites in seven days: three reasons to celebrate!

This winter/early spring has been insanely busy for me, and last week I finally saw three of my projects go live! I am thrilled with how these projects turned out. Each one presented some new challenges for me which made them kind of fun to work on. Interestingly, they are all powered by WordPress, but none of them actually include a blog. WordPress as a CMS!

The Pine Academy

This site includes a header slideshow, details about the academy’s programs, and downloadable registration forms. But the most important part of the site is the secure online registration feature. Users can sign their children up for multiple classes at a time and check out using their credit card, all without leaving the website. And again, it’s all built in WordPress so the client has easy access to manage the content on their site.

The client needed an easy way to update their website about completed projects, so I built a custom site in WordPress that includes five separate galleries that feature photos from their latest projects. The site design is simple, but it highlights the project photos nicely.

BEAR of Pennsylvania



BEAR of PA needed a complete overhaul of their current website, specifically a way to feature their vast product line of customizable playsets, trampolines, and sporting equipment. I created a fun and clean design and then built a WordPress theme around that. The client has full management over all of their site content, which will allow them to keep customers up-to-date on product changes, promotions, and clearance specials.

Now I need a nap! 🙂

    They look great! Good work. Do you do the PHP coding and the design? I do mainly backend programming and have used other companies for our design and graphics.

      I do! I do front-end design and coding, plus PHP and MySQL for some functionality and fancy features if a client needs them. I use WordPress for content management if it makes sense for the project, but I also have a home-grown CMS framework that I’ve used as well. I’m all over the place, basically 🙂
