Canadian Children's Opera Company

As Communications Coordinator of the Canadian Children's Opera Company, one of my responsibilities was to update and maintain the company's web site. The original site was developed in RapidWeaver and needed an overhaul. My first objective was to convert the site to PHP for future expansion. A new navigation system was employed to help users explore more facets of the company.

RapidWeaver has a tendency to break all hyperlinks when moved to a new server. Re-establishing the functionality of the site without a complicated re-design was my first priority. A calendar and a blog were also added.

Addendum - October 2016:

I no longer work at the CCOC but fondly remember my time with this fantastic organization. The web site has seen an even larger overhaul than I was able to accomplish in my short time with the group. Looking good guys!

Section Manager


Section manager web app for the doublebass section of a Symphony Orchestra.

Section Manager Web App

This is a web application that I built for the double bass section of the Tenerife Symphony Orchestra. The goal was to have a central place for the players to check their weekly seating assignments, how much time off everybody was getting as well as what pieces were being played on a given week. This boosted moral both on and off the stage as everyone felt there was transparency in the way the section was being organized.

Also of note is that the site uses SQLite as the backend. Originally it used MySQL. The reason for the change is portability as the size of the database doesn't warrant all that overhead.

This is a working site. Any changes you make to the database will be reset.

Audimus


Audimus presents a unique way of understanding classical music forms and structures for the uninitiated.

Audimus Musical Schematics

The client had developed a system to help students understand the structure of certain classical music forms using a proprietary interface.

Two major challenges: the site must be in English and Spanish and there were hundreds of SWF's to be protected from onsite download. Demos and a storefront were also required. I used Wordpress as a basis of keeping track of all the files. The simple theme was employed so as not to distract from the extremely visual nature of the client's products. PayPal was employed for the purchase of the client's products.

Aguere Web Design


A web services company dedicated to domain registry, web maintenance and more.

Aguere Web Design

The original website for the company I founded. Services included Domain Name Registration, Website design and maintenace and Website Hosting. I used a lot of forms to determine how best to help the client. Looking back, the forms I implemented are probably too complex for the average client.

Clearly there are better ways of collecting client information. A comprehensive list of pricing and the implementation of service-packages with a comparison chart would help the client discover what his website requires.

Double Bass Cast


A Podcast for musicians who play the Double Bass.

The Double Bass Cast.

Another Wordpress website for a podcaster using the simple Kubrick theme. I dressed it up a bit with a few graphics and a lot of links to the various podcast agregators. The podcast was met with a lot of enthusiasm in the double bass world and the client was extatic! I also developed a widget for the podcast.

Hosting for the MP3's was originally hosted with libsyn.com. It was a good solution at the time as the client had bandwidth caps on his hosting account. It is unsure whether the widget contributed to the success of the website, but it was a good idea at the time.

Cremonasia


Fine string instruments and accessories. Double Bass and Violoncello specialists.

Cremonasia Inc.

A website developed with then (now Adobe) MacroMedia Fireworks 3.0! Back in the day, it was popular to slice up a graphic heavy website. The theory was that a bunch of small images loaded faster than 1 big image. On a 56k modem it was a nightmare!

This is an archive of the website. The client has moved on. There was no payment gateway and so represents an 'old school' way of gaining business via a website. Good products none the less.

Museum Arts Ibañez


The website of a graphics artist showcasing his creations. French, English and Spanish.

Museum Arts Iba&ntile;ez

A graphics artist wanted to display his works in a 'museum'.

I used the 'floor plan' idea to emulate what you might find in a real museum. Lots of stuff to see. The client also wanted to sell a few of his works. This was accomplished with the 'Merchant Order Form' gateway.

This is an archive of the website (pertinent links have been de-activated). The client has moved on. Of note: Three languages (including the payment gateway). Developed with Adobe GoLive 6.

Viajes Hacia Ti


Melki Makhandar - therapist, mystic and musician. French and Spanish.

Viajes hacia ti

I built this website for friend and mystic Melki Makhandar. He had a vision of helping people spiritually through his inspirational trips to special places on the planet. It was my first and last implementation of Adobe Flash. Steve Jobs was right. French and Spanish only.

This is an archive of the website (outdated links have been de-activated). The client has moved on. It also shows how I sucked at Photoshop, not that I'm proud of that fact. BTW, it's not easy to work with mystics.

Agener S. L. L.


A Spanish water analysis laboratory focused on renewable energy.

Agener Labs

Here's a good example of a client who designed his business website by himself. That explains the Flash stuff on the opening page. I got called in to put a little bit of order to the navigation etc. This is the first iteration of several attempts and for me was the most successful. The problem with Flash is that if you don't design professionally, you tend to overdo it.

This is an archive of the website (pertinent links have been de-activated). The client has moved on. The company changed hands. I wish them luck. Its always fun to work with creative people - even those who don't understand web standards...

Magma Arte


A workshop for the production of limited edition graphics. Only available in Spanish.

Magma Arte - Arte Graphos

Another example from the past where a group of artists wanted an Internet presence. I can't say that their design concept was worthy of their talent, however, they were insistent on maintaining this design. My job consisted in making the website cross-browser compatible and to clean up some of the code.

This is an archive of the website (links are live, but probably won't work). The client has moved on. It's important to note that even really old code, properly treated, can still result in a true replication of the original.

Bameco S.A.


A Spanish Realty developer. English, French, German, Italian and Spanish.

BAMECO S.A.

A realty developer contacted me to develop a website to promote his new project. All that was required was to update the photographs as construction progressed. The twist was that the client wanted the site in five languages as his clients were from all parts of Europe.

This is an archive of the website (pertinent links have been de-activated). The client has moved on.

This website was my first enterprise project. The client was happy with the results, however, the business no longer exists.

Musical Schematics


The original website of Audimus shown elsewhere on the portfolio page. English and Spanish.

Read more

Jesús Sanz

This is the original website for audimus.org listed above. At the time the client hadn't yet developed his proprietary interface for his Musical Schematics, so the site is quite primitive. No payment gateway. Orders were taken via a form emailed to the client. Once again a bilingual website.

This is an archive of the website (pertinent links have been de-activated). This site was developed with GoLive CyberStudio 3. No payment gateway. Orders were placed via a form emailed to the client. Takes you back in time...
