Do: Projects and outcomes of my work in this learning area.
I co-own Dandy Dog! and designed the website using the Artisteer software that helped me design my own theme instead of relying on a prebuilt design. It’s a great application and a way to get started with creating your own website that doesn’t look like anyone else’s. I wanted to stick with our logo colors—ketchup and mustard—for the entire site. It’s garish, but it’s a concessions business that sells half-pound hot dogs at fairs and festivals in Ohio. Thus it’s okay to be a little bright!
Medicine for a New Era
My first WordPress based-site was built for Medicine for a New Era. It used Justin Tadlock’s Hybrid Theme for its core functionality; his instructions on using it as well as his expertly tagged code helped me immensely. The largest image on the page (at the top) is actually a slider that displays that month’s stories that are featured in an e-newsletter that reaches more than 1,000 recipients.
