High Tide Salon
A new local beauty salon with a unique aesthetic needed a website for current and future clients to refer to. The ambience of High Tide Salon is relaxed, coastal, and cool, but also professional and high-end, and the site needed to reflect this.
Tom Fillebrown Art
One of my favorite teachers needed a website to showcase his abstract art pieces, and it was an interesting case of synchronicity when my very first web class was assigned his site as a project. What I came up with at that point kind of sucked (I realized in retrospect), so a couple years later I decided to start from scratch with the new design, code, and life experience I had gained in the interim.
Blue Nami Sushi
I used to eat a lot of sushi back in the day, so for practice I designed and coded a website for one of my favorite sushi restaurants. The ambiance of each Blue Nami location is unique because they balance authentic Japanese decor with modern pieces and lighting, and that was my inspiration for this design (along with the fact that the translation of the Japanese word “nami” is “wave”).
PBC Knowledge Base
In 2006 my aunt Vera came very close to dying from a liver disease called primary biliary cholangitis, and she would have if it wasn’t for her amazing daughter who donated a portion of her liver (which is a pretty cool story, by the way). I wanted to learn more about PBC, and found myself motivated to create this site as a way of educating people about this often fatal but sometimes preventable illness.
Path to Vitality Acupuncture
Michelle is an amazing acupuncturist and healer who wanted an updated website for her Chinese Medicine clinic. She wanted to convey a feeling of vitality, hope, and wellness with her site and branding, and it was important to her to be able to easily share relevant health-related information with current and future clients.
Long before I started becoming consciously aware of duality or Eastern philosophy, I found myself drawn to the concept of integrated opposites like yin/yang and right brain/left brain. I created this website to explore how the design (right brain) and code (left brain) aspects are more effective when utilized together in a balanced way.
