Gallery: Some of my Web Designs & Domains
Some of these sites are no longer online.
www.sustain.earth ~ "A new earth is rising. Join us."
I still own this domain name, but I stopped paying for the hosting because I didn't have time to fully develop the site. I am willing to sell or possibly donate the domain to the right developers, provided their stated purpose is to promote climate action, climate justice, etc.
The photo on the home page is in the public domain, and I was licensed to use it. I designed this site with a "mobile first" mentality, so it displayed very nicely on mobile devices.
The "News Feed" seen in the bottom menu led to an embedded Twitter widget, which was a feed for a Twitter "list" I'd created. The list contained the top influencers on Twitter in subjects like renewable energy, climate action, the energy transition, and climate justice.
www.virginConcept.com ~ "Parthenogenesis. Redefined."
For a while I used this website as my personal brand & portal to information about me.I built it using G Suite, and when I decided to stop using G Suite for a while, the site went offline. So I transitioned my personal brand & portal to: www.FollowJust.in and www.JustJust.in. Those URLs redirect to the same page, which is currently my personal portal.
As it may be clear from the design, at the time that I built www.virginConcept.com, I was a bit obsessed with my social media presence. The social media icons on the home page (shown here) were all links to my social media profiles.
virginConcept was also designed with a mobile-first mindset, and it looked great on mobile devices.
I had a lot of fun with Gimp (version 2).
HotShotPot.com is still up and running. I love this Wordpress theme so much. The homepage is divided into five sections, each with a seperate image. When the user hovers over one of the images, it expands and displays ad copy (see the series of screenshots below). Then if the user clicks on the expanded area with the ad copy, it takes you to the page corresponding to that section. In other words, the site menu is the entire homepage.
My main issue with this theme has been trying to make it work well on mobile devices. I have an AMP version for mobile to apologize for what the mobile user is missing out on. But if you are on mobile, you can also open the Chrome menu when you're on the page, select "Request desktop site", and see how it works out for you. Some devices, especially with larger screens, actually handle it pretty well.
You should enlarge each screenshot image below to be able to decipher the ad copy in the screenshots.
I enjoyed this Wordpress theme so much that I designed a second site with it: www.AtFirstSites.com. That site is also still up and running, but it has similar issues rendering on mobile devices. I have an entire Behance project displayed for that site alone. Just scroll through my projects if you want to see it.
The image above tells you what HotShotPot is all about. I have most of the domain names listed there currently redirecting to "HotShotPot.com". As I work with clients, those domains will be used to develop separate websites with client-specific branding.
The images below represent a small sample of some of the bare-bones branding I've worked on for the project. Enlarge the screenshots to get a better look.
I'm not going to really flesh out the branding until I have clients who want to work with a specific brand or concept. After all, my clients will have their own input and ideas, and by then it will become worth my time to develop their branding fully.
This was one of my earliest website designs. I wanted to do my part to help end world hunger. I still do. But that mission has been incorporated into the larger mission statement of my current nonprofit, the WeFuture.Us Association. (https://WeFuture.Us).
It's an idea. A big one. Too big? Nah. There's no such thing.
