A new parish website

stjoes3

In my continuing effort to fill up every spare moment, I spent the last few months on a pro-bono redesign of the website for St. Joseph the Worker Parish in Nashua.

The old site hadn’t been updated in at least 7 years. It had been originally designed for old 4:3 monitors, and was static.  The new version is mobile- and tablet-friendly, and hopefully is a lot more user-friendly as well.

It was a good coding exercise for me. I used the Bootstrap framework for responsive design, and there’s some simple PHP and Javascript functionality in there as well.

Training on the fly

trainingvideos

One of my jobs with the Dining du Jour startup project was to develop training materials for the application. One quick and easy solution was a series of screen-grab videos I put together with PowerPoint, SoundCloud and a screen-capture application called ScreenCast-o-Matic.

It was fun to learn the process, and my technique and our production values got better with each installment. Learning can be just as much fun as teaching.

Sadly, diningdujour.com has been taken down, but you can still find the links to the videos on the DDJ page on YouTube.

Dining du Jour

DiningDuJour

Dining du Jour, a startup restaurant marketing application, was a platform for photos and descriptions of daily specials and pushing notifications about them to customers’ social media networks. I designed the logos, websites and print collateral materials, and produced instructional videos found on the website.
