Web Design Portfolio
Mindgardens Creative Services has been online since the year 2000 and has undergone many site transformations and designs. We finally settled on a more earthy design to reflect the botanical nature of the name. We chose the green and other natural colours to further the earthy feeling with a curvy flare at the footer to soften the page and add to the overall natural feel. Previous site designs utilised Microsoft Frontpage and WordPress and while this design also uses the WordPress platform, we’ve purchased a theme that gives us an incredible range of design capabilities, enabling us to create the stunning visual design it is today.
My Robot Academy
My Robot Academy is a fun, educational website geared toward children & young adults ages 4 to 18 who are interested in building and designing robots using Lego toys. Their curriculum integrates the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) education program into a fun, engaging workshop for kids. This WordPress theme presented some interesting challenges for me which meant I had to get creative, find some awesome plugins and work with a fair bit of CSS if I was going to be able to get this website to do the things I wanted it to. The end result is a vibrant, happy, kid-friendly website with bright, cheerful colours. My client wanted a customised enrolment form added to the site so that his customers could submit their enrolment applications online so I was able to implement this form along a signature collection plugin. I also provided some graphic design and copy-writing services plus the necessary SEO and Google site submission.
Joarli Entertainment is a fun, vibrant Sunbury based website I designed in collaboration with the site’s brilliant owner, Josephine Hatty! We debated on which web design platform would be best to use for her site that would be easy enough for her to maintain personally and eventually settled on Wix, a platform I had never used before and I quickly found myself falling in love with the beautiful features and design functionalities. With a bit of TLC, outstanding visual effects and graphic design skills, I proudly present one of my favourite designs yet! Be sure to visit Jo’s site and give her a ring for your next party or function!
