10Best.com

10Best.com

As Co-founder of 10Best and my full-time job for the past 10 years, I helped build 10Best from the ground up, cultivating it from concept to reality. Served as the main UI Guy and Web/Graphic designer for all aspects of 10Best – including 10Best.com and all design and development for our Solutions clients. As is typical with small, fast-moving companies, responsibilities were numerous and ever-changing.

Radisson Destinations

Radisson Destinations

One of 10Best's main clients is Carlson Hotels Worldwide (Radisson, Country Inns, Regent, Park Inn, Park Plaza, etc) and I have led the online site design work for all them as it relates to 10Best solutions. Radisson Destinations landing pagers were created to SEO and promote their "managed properties", and incorporating 10Best destination content as well.

Southern Living : Readers Choice

As a strategic partner of 10Best, Southern Living wanted to take their 20+ year Readers' Choice Awards from "paper ballots" to an online experience. The 10Best ecommerce team was selected to facilitated the design, development, hosting, data collection and management of the votes, as well as to create a site that displayed real-time results for all the submissions - including user feedback functionality similar to that of the "Facebook" wall.

My friends at Yourmark.com asked me to come up with a design for the Brooks PR group in NYC. Brooks PR handles the PR for celebrities like Rachael Ray, Guy Fieri, Cat Cora, Gretta Monoham, Ingrid Hoffman - just to name a few. I came up with the design and initial htrml/CSS/JS.

Fuller Normal Charter School

Again, my friends at Yourmark.com asked me to come up with a design for the Fuller Normal Charter School in Greenville SC. They are considered an "Advanced Technology" Charter School, so we incorporated some nice technology for their site. I came up with the design and initial htrml/CSS/JS.

Wayfarer Ministries

Wayfarer

Wayfarer is a ministry that does three main things: provide speakers for events hosted by other organizations and/or churches; create written, video, visual, and audio content, both for use by partner organizations and as resources available to the public at large; and minister in the upstate community. Working closely with the Wayfarer visual artist, Blake Berg, the new site was created.

Wayfarer Ministries

Wayfarer Camp - Website

Wayfarer also partnered with Anderson University and began their own "summer camps" that are really unique. So I came up with a design that matched their current "organic" feel and then had to build the site. It was challenging because their visual art genius (Blake Berg) doesn't believe in drawing "straight lines";) Building these CSS files felt a bit like doing advanced calculus or theoretical mathmatics. But it's good to keep the mind all streched out and in shape.

Wayfarer Camp - Brochure

Wayfarer also asked me to create their 16-page 2010 Camp Brochure. Again, blending elements from a pile of resources, I think we came up with something that is fresh.

David Walker

David Walker is a worship leader from Greenville SC. Also one of my best friends on the planet. I have played keyboards for him for the past 5 years or more - I can't remember - it's been a long time. But I threw this quick site together for him to promote his new CD - which, by the way, is incredible.
