Portfolio Samples

These are a few of my favorite sites. Some are simple and some are more complicated, but they are included here because each of them had some specific requirements that were not being met by other designers/developers or content management systems. These sites are intended to give you an idea of what is possible, whether your business is large or small. Every business is unique and has some needs that probably aren't covered by a one-size-fits-all website.

Metzer Farms
Austin Brothers Farm
Institute for Wetland & Environmental Education & Research
Cedar Heights Center
Brookfield Farm
Fallsbrook Farm
Fallsbrook Farm raises registered Pygora goats for their gorgeous fiber, and offers eggs, hay, and fresh produce for sale from their own farm and several surrounding farms.
They needed a website that allowed them to list what is currently available at any given time throughout the season. Like most businesses, they also required the ability to change content - copy and images - without headaches or having to attend nerd school.

From a code point of view, this is a fairly simple site, but visually, it's one of my personal favorites. It is bright and colorful and light, and that is exactly the impression you get when you visit this farm.
