CityKinder Classifieds

Screen Shot 2015-04-28 at 5.07.34 PMA joint venture with CityKinder this site serves as a marketplace for anything German in New York. The design needed to match the design of the mothership while giving it a bit more of a marketplace feel. The site is designed so that users can easily post listings, both free and paid listings and that it is inviting and easy to navigate for the site visitors, along with a built in messaging system.

John Muggenborg Photography

John, an established commerical product photographer needed to establish a new web presence to promote his architectural photography. The site needed to have an entirely different feel from his previous website, it needed present the images in superb quality, provide an opportunity to purchase images off the site, whil at the same time protecting the images from being downloaded illegially.  We decided to use the professional photographer platform Photoshelter which offers all of these functions, tweak it to meet our aesthetic goals and fill it up to the rim with SEO goodness.

Villa St. Martin

In order for potential vacationers to find and then book the stunning Villa St. Martin, its owners understood that the Villa first of all needed its own online presence. But they were entirely new to the notion of a website, I also guided the clients through the often intimidating steps from selecting a domain name through the entire online registration process, hosting, etc. I also advised them on the site’s content, SEO, and promoting the Villa on other vacation rental sites.

The design is website is intentionally very spare to match the Bauhaus style of the house and to give the villa a lot of space to present itself.

Artist & Accomplice

A friend and fellow entrepreneur, Catherine wanted to start an online e-commerce business for young collectors that would feature one artist per month. The site needed to be clean, give potential buyers a quick and welcoming introduction to the selected artist’s work, give them the opportunity to browse past artists, provide an easy way of taking the conversation offline and into the studio, while also making it easy purchase the art work. Catherine wanted the site to stand apart from other e-commerce art site by focusing on a well curated group of artist  she personally admires and offering the visitor the opportunity to build a relationship to the art and the artist rather than treating the art as a commodity. It also needed to be fun.

The New York Doula

Screen Shot 2015-04-28 at 5.12.52 PMFor this project I was in charge of transferring an existing site and design from an outdated CMS to WordPress, to allow for better SEO, a user-friendly backend, and a responsive layout. We used the transfer as an opportunity to reorganize and update the site’s content and tweak the design subtly to give the site a bit more of a cleaner look.  We also added an online shop and an event calendar.
