The Thibodaux Chamber of Commerce has gone through one revision since I started on the project in 2008.
This version of the website is similar to the original work, but the design was modified to allow the Thibodaux Chamber staff to make more modifications to the site. It is always interesting to see how clients modify websites to meet their current needs. Allowing these modifications can cause some disruptive design changes to the original ideas, but it gives clients the ability to use the site how they need to communicate. Besides, at a later date I can always use their ideas to make the design more effective while blending in the clients needs.
The Thibodaux Chamber of Commerce uses WordPress for content management with a custom theme using the Funbox theme framework. There a couple of WordPress plugins used for event & calendar management. This website also has a custom WordPress plugin for creating a membership directory from a flat file that is exported from the clients contact management application.
The SOLA Center for the Arts website was completed as a sub-contract project for Eye Candy Creative. The South Louisiana Center for the Arts is a non-profit community center focused on the visual and performing arts located in Houma, Louisiana.
Jeanie’s Monogramming was another project completed for Eye Candy Creative. This website was for a catalog site that would offer an e-commerce solution for ordering customized products. Eye Candy Creative created the initial designs and hired me to create the website and e-commerce system.
This website uses WordPress for content management with the WP e-Commerce WordPress plugin to handle order processing and online payments through PayPal. The website has a custom theme allowing different slight modifications based on simple WordPress custom fields.
The Ledet Management Website was completed for the W.L. Gaiennie Company in 2007. This uses WordPress for content management and was hosted with Yahoo.
This was a customized WordPress site used as a simple CMS brochure style website for the W. L. Gaiennie Company in Thibodaux, Louisiana. Unfortunately I do not have the full sized screenshots before this client redesigned this site.
Voice2Star was a company started by former Xspedius employees to sell satellite telephone equipment and service plans. This freelance project was referred to me by a former supervisor as I began work for Nicholls. The clients needed a logo and a simple brochure style website to showcase their products and options for satellite telephones. Like many clients they needed the work completed quickly, so I still think the project could have used a little more time. I believe the logo and website production were completed in less than 30 days. The website was mostly static HTML with a small set of custom PHP scripts to make minor sales notice updates.
I was hired at Xspedius by a former iAmerica supervisor and friend. Xspedius was a communication provider located in Lake Charles, Louisiana. I was originally hired to be the company webmaster but conflicts within the organization restricted my work to maintaining secondary sites and user interfaces for customer web applications. I did some decent development work for Xspedius, but I always regret that corporate politics kept me from doing more. I did not actually design the home page shown here, but I keep the screenshot to remind that should not allow the events at Xspedius to happen again for the sake of any future client or employer. All the other images are from websites or utilities that I created.
