Almost Done!

Its the end of 2012 and I am nearly finished with my new website design!

I have gotten so much done on my new website since my last post....

• New Art section with some nice Jquery effects and Lightbox image pop-ups including styling the Lightbox to reconize the if the website is being viewed by a mobile device with a screen width smaller than 600px and styling the pop-up image accordingly.

• New Video section that uses a JSON Feed Plugin to pull all of my YouTube videos, video image snapshots, and descriptions on to the page automatically. Styled so the description is viewed with a Foundation Modal pop-up window to conserve space, add interactivity, and preserve a consistant layout.

• New Website section (not quite finished). I have it all setup, but I still need to add a bunch of examples of websites I have build, especially the latest ones.

• Some cool coding that recognizes the IP address of the person who is viewing the website, builds a custom Google map and text at the bottom of the page. Also, some custom pop-up windows (modals) that are taylored to the location of the viewer, if they are visiting the website for the first time (within a year).

• More Modals! Custom pop-up windows that can be triggered from internal or external links to add some interactivity and taylored viewer experiences.

I hope to have everything ready to make the website live on Jan. 1 (or 2.. or 3), 2013 and then start marketing the website and the services that I provide.

  • We like things that are easy to manage.

    Once a video is uploaded to our YouTube account, it shows up on our Video Page. That's it!

    By grabbing the JSON feed, we can get all of the links, images, and text, instantly! Then automatically everything is formated so it looks pretty. No muss, no fuss.

    Contact Us and we can do the same for you.
