McGuire + Co. Kitchen & Bath
I designed and developed a new website for McGuire + Co. Kitchen & Bath. Their old website was slow and dark. They wanted to better communicate who they are and what they do.
The redesign has a much brighter look and is built on GeneratePress, a lean WordPress theme. Beautiful images of kitchen and bathrooms show off their work. Website visitors often come to their site from a mobile device, so a fast and mobile optimized website was important.
Adding new blog posts and updating galleries and pages is done through the regular WordPress interface. This makes it easy for the business to add content on their own.
SouthCoast Wind is developing an offshore wind area off the coast of Massachusetts. Their website communicates vital information about the project.

Work includes social media graphics, fact sheets, postcards, posters, infographics, brand style guide, Word and PowerPoint templates, and email newsletters. Samples of my work are on the SouthCoast Wind project page.

Samples of my work are on the WIRES project page.

A friendly and lighthearted design that makes the content heavy website easy to use. Insurance Agency websites require a lot of content for customers and visitors looking for insurance.

TRB ACRP Web Resource
I provided website design and information architecture for the TRB ACRP Air Service Development and Regional Economic Activity Study. The findings of the report are presented on the website, including case studies. The navigation simplifies the vast information into three tabs and an explanatory getting started page.
A challenge was to design the website using very few plugins and the default WordPress theme. The result is a fast, secure website that prioritizes content, navigation, and readability.
