Last act as webmaster

My last act as Art Director and Webmaster at STYLE Advertising was the redesign and launch of their new website: styleadvertising.com.

We had three main goals with the redesign:

  • New design that reflected the direction the agency is moving in
  • The site needs to provide more information: from services to internship programs
  • Non developers at STYLE need to be able to update the site themselves

I chose WordPress as the CMS platform. It’s easy to learn and update. The Open Source community provides infinite widgets and plugins for any need they might have – and best of all – I know, understand and LOVE WordPress.

What makes up the new STYLE website?

  • Custom theme built off the Toolbox framework
  • Flash on the home page – highlighting STYLE’s core services
  • Expanded Portfolio showing samples for all types of media
  • Content written to improve SEO
  • Plugins for Contact Forms, Columns, Maps and Gallery
  • An easy to use platform to encourage a site that will remain fresh for years to come

The NEW STYLE Advertising Website

Throughout the year I have been working at STYLE Advertising I have worked with many websites from start-ups to established established businesses; new sites, temporary sites, redesigns and overhauls–we have handled it all. I have worked as the developer building out the HTML and CSS of websites with other designers providing the code and on the flip side of the coin I have provided other developers my Photoshop files for them to code.

Besides web design I also worked with print advertising and marketing, maintaining running advertising campaigns for Medical Weight Loss Solutions and designing products for Bass Minder.

Building this site was my last official act at STYLE Advertising. I was offered, and accepted, a position at Infinity Auto Insurance doing solely web design. While I will miss working at an agency I am very excited to become a part of the Infinity Brand.

Now, to Infinity, and beyond!
