Here you can see some examples of my recent and current web design projects. I have included seven examples for this, the Curtis Dennis Portfolio page.
The first four examples are class assignments from IADT, where I received my degree in Web Design and Development in 2013.
For this web design project, we had to start with a blank piece of paper, and ultimately create a 6 page site for the fictional KB Autohaus.
The site pages are featured in the horizontal navigation, while the product pages are in the left hand navigation column. I also included their social media account (Facebook), and used in-text links in the page content section. Images are kept to right hand column, and also work as gallery links.
(HTML5 and CSS3 - 2012)
For this class, the task was to create another mini-site for a fictitious business, in this case Da'kine Surf.
This project is built completely within Flash, and includes a custom surfer cursor I created from a vector illustration.
The biggest drawback to using Flash is that it doesn't work very well with the search engines, since the content is not separate from the images. (2012)
Another fictitious business, this time a "local tattoo shop". This site features a left-hand navigation, as well as a horizontal navigation at the bottom of the page header.
This business relies heavily on social media to engage with potential customers, so I included the nine social accounts icons.
The tattoo artists images in the right hand column link directly to their individual galleries, to further increase customer engagement.
(HTML5 and CSS3 - 2013)
Information Overload, a "boutique bookstore" needed a site that would work well with mobile and desktop visitors.
Five genre categories were used to create the left hand navigation, with an additional horizontal navigation added in the page footer.
I placed the my account, sign-in, order status, and shopping cart buttons separate from the site navigation for increased usability.
(HTML5 and CSS3 - 2013)
This is my latest project, a site for a local genealogy specialist. I included two affiliate programs, to supplement the donation option.
Navigation includes a left hand navigation column, and at the bottom of the header. As this is a small business, I am building the site in phases per the customer's request/budget.
Soon there will be a searchable database for archived documents and records available to visitors.
(Built with SiteBuildIt using HTML5 and CSS3 - 2014)
This is a site that supports the families of special needs children, and can provide connection to programs/providers, support groups, online resources, and information around special needs parenting.
Features include a three-column design, site blog, newsletter, Google translate, social media, and a revenue stream via donations.
I also served as one of the two Co-Directors for this 501c3 organization, having been with the group since its inception in June 2011 through May 2015.
(SiteBuildIt HTML5 and CSS3 -2011/15)
For this client, I created the site design and wrote all of the content.
Features include a three-column design, connection to the owner's FaceBook page, a shopping cart using PayPal, as well as an affiliate program for related products.
Navigation is handled through a left hand navigation bar, with horizontal navigation included at the top of the header image, and in the page footer as well.
I also created a video page where potential customers can see the tool being used, which increased the conversion rate.
(HTML5 and CSS3 - 2014)
The last example is the site you are visiting now, CurtisDennis.com.
For this site I elected to use a two-column design, as it works well on desktop and mobile devices.
Site navigation uses a left hand navigation column, with a horizontal navigation at the top of the header and again in the page footer.
Social media is handled through my Linked In and Facebook pages, and a site blog is included as well.
I will continue to add more examples as I continue to complete projects for my customers.
