This is a portfolio site I build for a photographer friend of mine. They don't use the site any more but I liked it so much I kept a copy of it. The coolest parts are the expandable navigation that allows you to reach any part of the site directly from any page and the custom video popup player I mad for the video galleries. When I built this site responsive design wasn't really possible. I would have to totally redesign the site to make it mobil friendly so, I left it how it was. See the code on github.
I had a lot of fun building this site. It has a custom PHP backbone I built from scratch. All the pages are built for modular chunks of code so they can be easily updated without having to make changes to pages one at a time. I was really trying to see how far I could push PHP at the time. See the code on github.
The forum was recently lost to hackers so the links to it a are disabled. I am currently rebuilding it.
This is the remains of an aborted project I did for a client. I am posting it here because I am particularly proud of how well the responsive functionality works. It transitions smoothly as small as 300px upward. The music upload page took some real shoe horning to get it to look right and looks the best so, that is the page I've linked to. See the code on github.
I believe in mobile first design. It is much easier to figure out what the minimum necessary elements and functionality is the start and add things as the site expands than to figure out what you can do without as it shrinks. 300px wide is the narrowest window a site is ever likely to display at so , I always start my designs there. If it looks and functions well at that size you know it will work anywhere it is likely to be used.
This is a contest page I rebuilt for a client. The original was built on a paid CMS. The optimization wasn't very good and the responsive functionality was rough with some blind spots. I rebuilt the both pages from the ground up by hand. My version loads faster and has smooth size transitions from 300px wide all the way to desktop size. The client said it was even better than he hoped for! See the code on github.
