As I produce new web sites, I’ll post them to the Metro Girl blog. But since I’m just starting, it’s time to play catch-up. Here’s some of what I’ve been up to over the past year or so.
E-zine / fanzine inspired by sci-fi/fantasy author Storm Constantine, with Storm’s encouragement and the contributions of Storm fans.
When author Storm Constantine put out a mention that she’d like to see her defunct fanzine Inception rise again as an e-zine, I stepped up to the plate — I love Storm way too much to say no! This web site was for many years a quarterly publication and has been operation since November 2001. In 2007 I decided to move to a new design and format, moving to year-round submissions and a Word Press-driven blog design for easy updating. It’s much less work for me now and users find it much easier to access past content, now that all posts are tagged with keywords and sorted by date. All posts can be commented on as well, making the site more interactive.
Web site for cult favorite, British author Storm Constantine.
After many years as Storm’s friend, editor, and fan organizer, I finally decided it was time I take on her web site. The previous design did not match her style and difficult to maintain. The new web site takes advantage of new technologies, such as WordPress and PHP-driven galleries and forums. The entire web site can be updated via a web interface, allowing both Storm and I to easily update it.
Online gallery for Atlantan Forrest Briggs, who takes pictures around the world.
As soon as I saw Forrest photographs, I wanted to make him a web site. Fortunately for me, he asked me to, and together we created a design that shows off his photographs of people and places from around the world. The design is minimalist, with an emphasis on the photos.
Archive of creative fiction based on or inspired by the world of Wraeththu.
Wraeththu fan fiction — writing it and reading it — is one of my passions and over the years I’ve been the main caretaker for its existence online. In April 2008, I tossed out the antiquated web site the archive was on and moved to a WordPress blog format complete with tags, RSS feeds, content management, and more. Nifty!
Tom Haney Automata
Web site for Atlanta-based professional artist Tom Haney, maker of one-of-a-kind, hand-crafted automata and other works of modern folk art.
Tom Haney spends weeks crafting his one-of-a-kind creations. Because of the nature of his work, it’s often hard for people at shows or show organizers to describe — you have to see it to “get” it.
With this site, Tom has a great marketing tool and something to help out anyone who wants to see his stuff in action. In addition to great pictures, there are Flash movies.
The current design came online in June 2008. A previous design of mine was online for 4-5 years prior.
