I was provided a Photoshop mockup of what they wanted the site to look like. From there I sliced everything up and hand-coded the site. The client wanted customizable text and rotating images for the banner so I put together a jQuery slide show that'd get it's settings from an XML file.
It's finally done! A little while after I finished version 2 of my site I kept thinking to myself "man, it'd be nice to have that, or this, or that", and so on. So I've been taking notes of things that liked, or new features that I wanted to implement. During those couple of years I was applying band-aids to my all Flash site so that I could post different kinds of content.
A talented friend of mine has been welding sculptures for a while now. He was going to be having a show so he hit me up to put a website together for him. It's pretty basic; it's been a while since he's done anything with html so I put some simple controls together so that he could go in and edit stuff pretty easily.
The second incarnation of my website is all Flash and powered by XML. I was going for simple, easy to navigate and compact. For this I had to come up with some custom functions that could create scrollbars, scalable windows that could hold any content, and an overlapping tab window that could contain dropdown lists.
This was another mock-up for a supply store, the store was located in Christmas valley hence the Santa.
