Taylor'd Reports is an advanced reporting website for individuals working in the DOD realm wishing to stay up to the minute on the day-to-day status of the multitude of programs. Some key highlights of this site include:

  • Advanced sorting and filtering features on the homepage
  • The reports themselves are designed so that the writer can compse the reports using regular syntax (eg. headings and paragraphs) and the application intelligently parses the text and populates the sidebar navigation automatically.

Meshea Poore for Congress

This is a recent one-page landing site for an upcoming congressional bid by West Virginia Delegate Meshea Poore. To note on this site is our usage of responsive design, the ability of a site to dynamically resize based on the window size or device size. Nearly all of our sites utilize this technique, but this site in particular is a great example of the potential this provides to give the user a unified branding, design and usability experience no matter what device they are using.

American Airlines Cargo - Air Cargo Insights

This site was developed for American Airlines' Cargo division. They wanted a blog to provide insight to the industry and also to promote their objectives to decision makers in their industry. For this site we did not provide the design of the site, only the programming an user experience. This is a Wordpress site, and in particular one that really pushes the limits of what a Wordpress site can do. It provides front-end editing, the ability to select a block of text or other content nearly anywhere on the site and change is right there without any kind of backend. This is traditionally been a complaint of Wordpress site owners and one that I remedied with some custom programming.

Potato-Expo Website

Potato-Expo is nation's largest convention for the potato industry. We were tasked with creating a website to showcase all that the expo has to offer as well as to provide attendees with valuable information for event itself. Additionally, since this is a yearly event the site is designed to be able to be easily refreshed for the theme of each year's event. Potato-Expo 2013 was held at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas. The Expo in 2014 will be held in San Antonio, TX. We easily refreshed the design for the new venue for 2014.
