Kawartha Trails Resort

Kawartha Trails Resort, about 15 mins south of Peterborough, have been a great client to work with. This was a complete redesign. Content was taken from a previous site and one what was half built. A humble graphical design because the resort is in a dial-up area.

Haliburton Highlands Land Trust

My college project and still a client. HHLT is a great organization perserving the wilderness in the Haliburton Highlands area. Another business in a dial-up or satelite ISP area so image file size optimization is a key.

Frost Recreation

In this project, I was referred to the Athletic Director by a former teacher of mine to build a web site for the recreation department. Before, all that was there was some contact information which hadn't been updated since 1999. My goal was to design a site which utilized the branding of Fleming College and combine it with the aspects of sports. I incorporated the school's colours as much as possible into the header and navigation as sports teams are distinguished by colours. A linear layout was used as most playing surfaces are square, straight and outlined. The title, 'Frost Recreation', was designed to give it a bit of attitude, arrogance.

Paul Vanderhoek's Airbrush Studio

Ahhh, the very first site I designed when taking night classes! If you look at the source code you will notice it has a table layout which was how the class was taught. The next class I took, I learned about CSS and have never looked back. This site was hand coded in Notepad. 'My fingers!!!'
