This was a small project I did for a local landscaping business. Since the business owner/operator did not have a great deal of textual content, I decided to use a single page layout. It was designed to provide the client’s basic information and provide a way for potential clients to contact him to obtain more information or to set up an appointment for a consultation.

Just finished! For the past couple of weeks I’ve been working on a new website for my client, contemporary romance author Sheryl Lister.
She was looking to update her website’s look and overall feel to better reflect her personality and to communicate an air of elegance to visitors. She liked the design I created for my “Save the Date” Wedding theme, so I adapted and re-built it for use on this new website project.

This is a project I am working on for the Rosetta Center for Counseling and Wellness in Sacramento, California. Using Adobe Illustrator I created the flower, or rosette, logo for this local business that is dedicated to health and wellness for women of color. I wanted a logo design that conveyed peace, tranquility, and harmony with nature, in a color palette that was bright, made up of complementary colors, but without being overwhelming. From there I used the same color palette throughout the website, which I extensively customized from a Genesis Framework child theme.

This site marks the first time I have used and modified a Genesis child theme. It is based on the Remobile Pro theme, and I found it very easy to use and easy to figure out how to modify things to get to what the client wanted. Continue reading ““Suzette D. Harrison Books””
“Save the Date” is the first WordPress theme that I designed and mocked up in Photoshop, coded as a static HTML site, and then proceeded to transform into a WordPress theme. It was built on the Underscores starter theme by Automattic, the folks behind WordPress. Continue reading ““Save the Date” WordPress Wedding Theme”
This graphic design project was the front and back design for t-shirts that were made for the African American & African Studies majors at University of California, Davis. Continue reading “UC Davis “Major Pride” T-shirt Design”
This was a graphic design project for a series of health and stress-reduction workshops targeting African American women. The client wanted to have these flyers printed on 4 x 6 card stock to be handed out to potential attendees. I decided on blue as the dominant color and brown for text as reinforcement of the target audience. Continue reading ““Breathe” Graphic Design Project”
This website was made for a client who leads a book club, “The Literary Ladies Alliance.” She wanted a “quick and dirty” site that she could use to display and maintain a calendar, publish updates and announcements about their monthly book selection, meetings, and events, a list of the books they have previously read and those that are on their proposed list. Basically a simple site for book club business and other housekeeping tasks. Continue reading ““Literary Ladies Alliance” Book Club”
“Dr. Milmon’s World” is the website I designed and developed to represent my life as a professor at the University of California, Davis. I built this site using the Twitter Bootstrap framework, and particularly wanted to communicate that although I am a professor, I still have a lighthearted and approachable personality. Continue reading ““Dr. Milmon’s World” Teaching Website”
This was another of my favorite Motion Graphics Projects. We were to create a promo for a fictitious television classic film festival called “Hardboiled” because it featured film noir movies with a “hardboiled” private detective. Continue reading ““Hardboiled” TV Film Festival Promo”
This was one of my very first Motion Graphics projects at the Art Institute. It is a title sequence for a fictitious cable television series about the supernatural and twins. The title and the cast names were all supplied by our teacher, and our task was to come up with something that represented the theme and tone of the project as given in the project specs. Continue reading ““Deadly Oath” Title Sequence”
I created this mockup for a supernatural thriller movie in my Design Layout class. Based on the classic murder mystery, especially those of the 1940s and 50s, this was my favorite projects created for the class. We were given the design brief of producing a mockup for a website designed to showcase our new movie. We were to try to evoke a particular mood through the use of color, typography, and imagery while making sure to include elements that would provide all the most important information a user might want when visiting a website designed to promote a movie.
