Stuff I've made
During the course of a Web design class, you tend to create a lot of stuff. This is some of the stuff I made, using Photoshop, Dreamweaver, and good old-fashioned hand-coded HTML.
Click on any image below to view the full-size version in a new window.
The first image I ever made in Photoshop CS3, using the built-in brushes. I really like the clouds.
The first Photoshop assignment where we really got to have fun with layers and filters. The window was created by applying the Stained Glass filter to a photo of flowers, and the background was created from an airbrushed foam block, found at a mini-golf course. Yeah.
A Photoshop scrapbooking assignment, using pre-made pieces (excluding the two photos, which are mine). The shadows add a nice touch of realism.
B&B Bathtub Cleaners
Part 1 of our first assignment creating Web layouts in Photoshop. I used a stock photo of tiles for the background, a floral brush for the flower behind the text, and a picture of a gross bathtub, slightly tweaked to look even grosser. I should use this layout again.
Part 2 of the aforementioned assignment. Used a clone brush to make the "twins," which sounds kinda silly when I could have just copy-pasted, but it was part of the assignment. I rather dislike mimes and felt really weird doing this layout, but I guess it turned out okay. And they say monochrome is hard to do...
Part 1 of the second half of our Photoshop final. We were given something like an hour and a half to make two Web layouts in Photoshop. Eeek.
Only two non-colors here, but I kinda like the simplicity. Has kind of a newsletter feel to it.
Life's a Beach
Part 2 of the aforementioned final. Hooray, it's a blog!
The clone brush is kinda tough to use in Web layouts. I just gave this one the Silent Laughter treatment and cloned the guy on the beach. I guess I did okay, since my instructor couldn't figure out where I used the brush. Heheh.
rusted logic v0.1
Photoshop mock-up of a possible design for rusted logic, the lovely site you're viewing now. Clearly, I like bevels.
rusted logic v1.0
Older, simpler, table-based design for rusted logic, created entirely in Dreamweaver. Not quite ready for prime-time, but I like the design. Maybe I'll convert it to DIVs and use it again.
One of my first hand-coded XHTML layouts using DIVs. Simple, yet elegant. I'll have to expand on this one some day.
(Bubbles are neat...)
Wow! Our Web design class was hired to create a new site for Clark's Cleaners, a well-known local business. We were all pretty nervous, of course, but we all pulled together and created a great-looking site, which the owner was very happy with. I assisted with the overall page design on this site.
