Work > My Portfolio

YouVersion

I coded the front-end of YouVersion, along with Judson Collier. The visual design and IA was done by Rob Soulé and Andy Knight, with icons by Rogie King.

I made the templates using Haml, Sass, Compass, and JavaScript. The site runs on Rails and was built by in-house developers Chad Bailey and Ethan Prothro.


Chazown

Chazown is the promo site for a book by Craig Groeschel, pastor of LifeChurch.tv. I built the HTML, CSS and JavaScript templates, based on visual designs done by Ismael Burciaga. It was implemented by LC’s in-house development team.


Fellowship One > Design Patterns

I curated the design patterns for web apps built at Fellowship Technologies, primarily the flagship app Fellowship One. This involved documenting reusable user interface paradigms, and writing syntax guidelines for structuring code.


LifeChurch.tv

LifeChurch.tv is a thriving church in Oklahoma, now spanning multiple locations across the globe. Based on designs by Chris Merritt, I built out the HTML templates for the new LC site. It was implemented by their in-house development team.


jQuery Desktop

This is a proof-of-concept that I built out in around a week’s time. I wanted to see if it would be possible to mimic the functionality of a desktop in the browser. I used jQuery and jQuery UI to ease some of the heavy lifting. All the CSS was custom written, to give the illusion of a pseudo Linux environment.


960 Grid System

I initially created this system to aid in my rapid prototyping workflow: sketching, wireframing, designing, and coding. Whereas other CSS frameworks attempt to cover a wide spectrum of design possibilities, I sought to focus only on grid design, but do so across multiple mediums. Read more here.


Godbit Project

The purpose of Godbit is to help the “big-C” church catch up with the rest of the world in adherence to Web Standards and technologies overseen by the W3C, the governing body of best-practices on the Internet. Since 2005, we have tried to help educate ministries about how to better utilize the web.


Stonebriar Community Church

This was the result of a collaborative effort. Chris Merritt did the visual design. I handled all the front-end code and JavaScript interaction. David Lanier built out the server-side templates in the TYPO3 content management system. The redesign process was overseen by team lead Jason Reynolds.

Note: Chris wrote about his design process in an article for Digital Web.


Christ Fellowship

This was the result of a collaborative effort. Chris Merritt did the visual design. I handled all the front-end code and JavaScript interaction. Ron Hall built out the server-side templates in the TYPO3 content management system. The redesign process was overseen by team lead Jason Reynolds.

Note: Based on our work, Ron created a TYPO3 quick-start framework.


Spring Valley

I was privileged to be one of three designers to participate in a “build-off” for the UK’s .Net Magazine, crafting a hypothetical home page for a real or fictitious place of worship. The full magazine article can be seen here.


Heal Massage Therapy

I designed this site for a member of our small group at church, who (at the time) was striking out on her own to be a self-employed massage therapist. She has since let her domain name expire, and opted not to go the route of a small business owner. I have archived the site. Read about it here.


AAFES Portal

While working as an information architect at EMC, I designed composites as part of a sales pitch to AAFES – exclusive retail chain provider for the US Armed Forces. As the son of a retired Air Force pilot, it was fun to try my hand at copywriting in a military context. View the design concepts: [1], [2], [3]
