In Progress: Brique Chicago

Designer: Darling Studio

Website + Blog

I’m currently work on a big site redesign with Darling Studio for the lovely ladies of Boutique Bites. Their new site is going to be quite the gorgeous transformation!

Last week for the opening of their corresponding new amazing new event space BRIQUE, I threw this splash page up on their site, complete with a huge slideshow and all the important details.

It’s the perfect little preview of what’s to come – Check out their gorgeous splash page here. Can’t wait to reveal the full project soon!

Pancake App: The invoicing dream machine!

I often get asked about the program I use for invoicing clients and I always give a rave recommendation for the Pancake App.

This powerful program is installed directly onto your domain and can be used for everything from invoicing to tracking project time to allowing clients to make easy payments. It also provides each client with a “client area” that gives them a record of past projects and payments. Take a look at my sample client estimate to see an example! As you can see on my example, the invoices can be completely customized to match any branding with some basic css knowledge. Here’s a peek at the Dashboard (via Pancake App’s sample):

It has seriously made my life so much easier – Creating invoices is easy breezy now! And the cost of the app is just a one time payment versus a monthly fee. Check out all the details here and feel free to let me know if you have any questions. And if you’re curious about my full client process you can read all about that over here!

The Moon & Co

Designer: Jay Adores

Website + Blog

The Moon & Co (founded by Molly Rhymer) is a stunning creative event workspace in downtown Los Angeles. The space was in need of a killer website, so I teamed up for the first time with designer Jaymee of JayAdores. I was blown away by her design! I loved the way she thought outside the box with everything from the menu layout to the full-sized responsive slideshow to how things shift around from page to page. Each part of this site is a showcase and I’m so proud to have had the opportunity to code it and work with these talented ladies.

Last fall at Designer Vaca, I met the lovely Leigh of Savage Design Co. We became fast friends and I was thrilled when she asked me to code her new portfolio site and blog. The design is incredible and it was so fun to bring it to life on the web! My favorite part of the site is her intricate portfolio functionality, not to mention the portfolio projects are crazy good. Check it out!

Recently I had the opportunity to work with Vanessa at Noirve to launch a brand new blog for Erin Joy Henry. Erin’s writing work in the field of healthy living has appeared in The Huffington Post, msn.com and other blogs around the web.

Both ladies were a dream to work with! The design features 8 different interactive category pages and a super sleek, clean blog layout (all the way down to the commenting area!) Check out Erin’s gorgeous new web space here.
