  • A new face for Aircraft Demolition

    I've been helping my friend and client Tim Zemanovic for quite a few years now on several of his ventures. Today we released a brand new site for his aircraft demolition and recycling firm. We built on Joomla 3 with data migrated from the old site--one that dates back to the Joomla 1.5 era. It's a "responsive" site, meaning it flows and changes to fit and work well on a wide range of screen sizes.

    The new site features an ultra-modern "flat" design in a full-width, edge-to-edge layout. It's ideal for both desktop and mobile users. Large graphics in the home page feature make for an impressive first look. Also featured on the home page are Tim's latest project news articles and a responsive video profile.

    This site has been one of the most exciting that I've done. It really came together into something great.

  • Old world product on a fresh new site: European Cobblestone

    screenshot-eurocobbleBill McKenna, my client from several previous projects, brought me a site in drastic need of an update. It was one of those from the late 90s--the era of that-web-technology-which-shall-not-be-named. Ok, it was built with Flash. And it was the worst kind of Flash site, with mystery meat navigation, brain-scratching event sounds, and nearly unreadable text in horizontally scrolling boxes. It was bad, and it reflected poorly on Bill. 

    I set him up with a great Joomla 3 site built on a RocketTheme template. We scavenged images from his old site and some PDF brochure files. A color palette derived from his logo, a combination of modern and elegant type, and some heavy, two-tone image borders integrated into a flat design result in a modern presentation of his old-world product. The site looks great on desktop computers and mobile devices.
