HUGGER MUGGER SITE REDESIGN, ATTRIBUTES, AND SEO • 2017 - PRESENT
When I was brought on at Hugger Mugger, they already had an excellent wireframe established for their Magento-driven website but it needed some love. I was able to give it a bit of a redesign and learned to work with Attributes, which is a really cool CMS feature that allows you to sort items by things like weight, material, and other preferences (everything you see in the left column). I then started learning SEO and was able to get huggermugger.com to the top of organic searches! I’m having a lot of fun working with the back-end web devs at Schawel + Coles on this eCommerce site with more than 100 products and a hearty WordPress blog.
EDGE EYEWEAR WEBSITE REDESIGN And Site Map • 2014
While working at Edge, I had the awesome opportunity to redesign their website from the ground up. Remember Flash? That got outdated, and we needed something more mobile-friendly. I got down and dirty with both the site mapping and layout design for 50+ pages— my idea of a great challenge! I designed and coded the front-end, then we gave it to our back-end web developer to add Find a Retalier and a few other advanced features.
NATIONAL DIRECTORY OF CHIROPRACTIC • 2006 - 2010
The first company I did a hefty amount of web work for was the National Directory of Chiropractic. We provided free directory listings to chiropractic offices in the US, and for an additional fee, we offered template-driven Flash websites and e-newsletters. I did all of the admin on these websites and offered personalized customization (HTML & Flash tweaks) for anyone who needed some assistance. I spent a lot of time transferring domains with GoDaddy and worked on nearly 100 websites for doctors across the US.
1800PATCHES • 2005 - 2006
Ohhhh the mid-2000s! This was the first website I had the pleasure of working on professionally, I truly enjoyed hard coding without previews and MySQL database management, but I can’t say I miss it too much. Ask me about the time I accidentally got nicotine poisoning from handling too many Nicoderm patches!
