Gruber Painting  Website Design and Development

Gruber Painting

Website Design and Development, 2013

Gruber Painting is a well established Residential Painting Company in the South Bay & Peninsula, but for the longest time they had no web presence. The first stage of the project was to design and create a simple splash page with the company contact information while the website was being developed. The second stage of the project was to design the look and feel of the site as well as the usability. I designed the site to have a responsive layout so it could be viewable on different browsers. For the final stage of the project, I programmed the site using php to make it database driven and for the contact forms. I used a combination of HTML, CSS, to create the responsive layout, and jQuery and JavaScript on the projects page for the interactivity.

Elite Recruiting Films

Website Design and Development, 2011

I redeveloped the ecommerce website for Elite Recruiting Films. They were a small startup company that specialized in sports recruiting and highlight videos for athletes looking to get recruited or applying for sports scholarships. Their original site used an online website template with a ton of unnecessary and messy code. I improved the usability of the site by consolidating redundant pages and adding a PHP contact form as a way to filter the user feedback and to better assess the needs of the clients. I also used best practice methods to clean up the HTML and CSS code.

Tradeshow and Large Format Graphics

Heat and Control PMMI Tradeshow Booth Graphics

Heat and Control

PMMI Tradeshow Booth Graphics, 2013

One of the most successful ways that Heat and Control market their products is through Tradeshows and PMMI is one of the largest Tradeshows that market packaging and product handling equipment. I worked with the rest of marketing team to completely revamp the booth for PMMI in 2013. I played a major role in the development of the new booth by designing and producing all of the graphics that were used. The biggest challenge I faced was having to work with photos that were not large enough to expand to the extremely large scales the booth demanded. Using a combination of Photoshop and Illustrator, I came up with various creative methods and design strategies to make the files work. The end result was that the CEO of Heat and Control commented that it was one of the best-looking booths he had seen in a long time.
