Marine Servicenter

I have shepherded this site through multiple iterations over the years, from static HTML to Drupal 5, Drupal 6, and now this latest release in Drupal 7. As a yacht brokerage that both sells and services boats of all sizes and configurations it is important for the site to emphasize the boating lifestyle as much as the boats themselves. I designed the site to showcase some of the many pictures, of the boats, as well as the boat owners enjoying the life their boats allow them to lead.


I started this project as a consultant, but soon found myself the lead developer. The initial challenge was to architect a solution in Drupal 6 using CCK, taxonomy, and Views that could handle the almost-but-not-quite-hierarchical data structure needed to represent a library of every gun ever made. We were able to come up with a workable solution involving the Computed field module and some custom code to tie it all together.


This began with a teaser site, promoting the return of Soundgarden. It was a single page site, built with Drupal, served with Varnish, that collected contact info via an ajax driven form, and displayed some archival footage of the band to get fans excited.


Based on studies done by the International Medical Prevention Registry on Venous Thromboembolism I was able to design and build a series of calculators to help doctors assess the risk of venous thromboembolism and/or bleeding in patients. The calculators were purposefully built using open technologies (Javascript, HTML, and CSS) to improve the usefulness of the calculators as not just risk assessment tools, but also as teaching tools to aid those interested in the underlying algorithms.

Gertrude's Hearse

A popular local band, Gertrude's Hearse, needed a better way to connect with their fans and share their music with the world. Using Drupal and some javascript magic we were able to create an easy way for the band members to add new tour dates, music, and news to their site and also help their fans get all the info necessary to make it to a show, learn what the band has been up to, and download the latest tracks.

This is some logo work for a software development consulting company in Seattle. Here the dots in each letter i become nodes in a network, evoking the connections of social networking, one of the core competencies of this particular company.

Hagar Marine

This is some logo work for a small yacht repair business in Seattle. The client had a back-of-the-napkin sketch of what they had in mind, but needed a professionally rendered version to help improve credibility and brand awareness. Here you can see both the final design, as well as an alternate black and white, pseudo-woodcut version.
