Miami Headshot Photos

This is a project that I did while working at under contract at GlueGo, a small marketing and photography company. For this particular project I was tasked to create a site for a new service GlueGo was trying out, Mobile Headshot Bars. Mobile headshot bars are basically mobile photography studios that can be set up in a 8 X 8 space. They are great for business conferences and for individuals that want the benefit of having a photographer come to them.

Miami Headshot Photos was probably one of my biggest projects, for it required me to not only develop the website, but also create a variety of banners, edit several images and write an extensive amount of SEO friendly content. The most difficult part was getting all of this to fit into a landing page without losing potential customers. Overall, the project turned out very well and my boss was happy with how user friendly the website came out.

Le Peninsula is a website for a fictional hotel of the same name. The website was made for the Phi Beta Lambda 2013 Web Design competition. It was my first time entering a web design competition and my first time building a website. To top it all off, first and second place winners would get to go to California for finals. I really wanted to go to California, so spent countless hours on the concept, writing and building the whole site out from scratch (no templates were allowed). Fortunately, my hard work paid off, for I got 1st place in the state of Florida and got to go to California to compete at nationals. Competition was fierce in Californa, but I managed to get 3rd place in the U.S. Not bad at all for my first website J

The funny thing about is that it’s probably the worst site I’ve made (I mean, it was my first). However, it sparked my passion for web development and programming, so I keep it here on my portfolio to remind me of how far I’ve come.

GlueGo is a website that I made while I was working under contract for GlueGo. GlueGo is a company with many child companies that offer event activation, photography, video and marketing services. This website was a behemoth of a project because it required me to build a site around four standalone services. All these services required their individual copyright and media but needed to keep a consistent theme across the site. This aspect proved to be tough and the hardest challenge about building

After a lot of brainstorming, I decided to build the front page around their main service, which is marketing activations, with links to their other services in the main carousel. For their other services, I decided to distribute them into pages that can be used as standalone landing pages or pages in the main site. This technique draws a clear line between services without deviating from the overall theme. The result is a beautiful and effective website for a parent company.

Alimentando Cuerpos y Almas

Alimentando Cuerpos y Almas is a non-profit founded by high school student. The non profit aims give back to the community by providing meals for the less fortunate. The goal was to spread the word about their movement and to get organizations to partner to Alimentando Cuerpos y Almas.

For this project I went with a landing page with an about, gallery, and contact form. I was subcontracted for this project, so I am not sure I don’t keep in touch with the client, but I last I heard he got a scholarship for his contributions to the community.
