The Tulane University Libraries website uses the Drupal CMS system. I work with other members of the Library IT staff to produce and maintain the website. This site was produced in 2021. The site was under additional iteration changes when this post was started.
The Nicholls State University website has been a project of continuous iteration and enhancements. The 2015 redesign project was no exception with a WordPress theme based on the Underscore(_S) starter theme using Sass to organize and simplify complex CSS techniques and customized PHP to create useful tools to communicate with visitors. Some of the custom applications include the homepage calendar feed that actually uses the Google Calendar API which allowed non-technical web editors to help update events using the calendar system they were already using as part of their daily duties.
This website was designed to be responsive based on screen size allowing the site to be useful with multiple devices. During this projects development around 60% of the visitors were using either phones or tablets when interacting with website.
This site was actually completed in 2008, but it was recently revised with some minor design revisions and upgrades. I’m displaying the most recent screenshots for this project.
The Bayou Country Children Museum is an interactive museum featuring displays and information related to the bayou region of south Louisiana. Initially the website is being used to communicate the progress and attract donations for the museum construction. The website design was initially completed by Eye Candy Creative, and they requested my skills to build the final site using an accessible content management system.
Websites for a higher education institutions are complex and always changing. I have worked for Nicholls State University for over six years and I’ve made several revisions. The site at this point uses a combination of static HTML, WordPress, and other web applications. I’m just going to put all the screen images I can for the Nicholls State University Website up to this point. There are a couple images of the site before I started working if you are interested in what I started with.
The Blackhorse Association is a non-profit organization made up of previous members of the 11th Calvary Regiment of the U.S. Army. The organization focuses on the scholarship, support, and commemoration of the duty it’s members and family have made as part of the 11th Calvary. This website is focused on communication with the members . related organizations, and the public. The Blackhorse Association uses this website to collect donations for operating expenses and scholarships that are offered to the families of fallen members of the 11th Calvary Regiment.
This website will never be finished for me, and it is annual contract with the Blackhorse Association. I hope to have a better revision soon because I feel the illustration and design were completed too quickly. The website uses WordPress for content management with a custom theme using the Funbox theme framework. The Blackhorse Association website uses a WordPress e-Commerce plugin to process and track donations to the scholarship and operating funds.
For so long I’ve had to gaze on Arial and Helvetica competing for my love. I’ve watched as Times New Roman and ugly older sibling Times read old crumbling newspapers. In a corner I’ve spied Courier New and lazy cousin Courier trying to play Atari cartridges in a broken NES and program in Basic.
