San Antonio Convention & Visitors Bureau

San Antonio Convention & Visitors Bureau

The visitsanantonio.com website was a large-scale web project with at least 30 people working on it both client and agency side.

The main site includes a lot of custom integrations, including personalized content, social log-in, and booking. The mobile experience was built using separate doc type templates but pulling from the same data source.

Proof Advertising

Proof Advertising

Proof Advertising wanted to showcase some of their newer work in a new, unique way while also bringing in some of their older work. The project was done in open Web standards so all Flash banners and presentations had to converted to video.

One challenge was to keep the site loading and performing quickly, though it's full of large, rich graphics. This was achieved through careful image optimization, asynchronous asset loading and loading content one-demand.

Also, the content in the 'News' and 'Staff' sections are all maintained by a decoupled (headless) Wordpress instance.

Memorial City

Memorial City

The Memorial City site was built entirely on a decoupled (headless) CMS. This allowed me to keep a lean-and-mean front-end framework while leveraging the ease of content input Wordpress offers. I also used RESS web development to truly optimize the mobile experience.

The Memorial City site also uses geo-locating, Google maps, and various other under-the-hood features.

Paramount Austin

Paramount Austin

Commemorating the centennial of the Paramount Theater in Austin, Texas, this project was built out over the course of months in preparation for Paramount's 100-year anniversary.

The Paramount project is a media-heavy, one-page site. So, delivering the content without slowing down the user experience, was one of the bigger challenges.

City Of Yellow Roses Quiz

City of Yellow Roses | Gentlemen's Quiz

A fun and light-hearted quiz published around Valentine's day to give men an opportunity to brush up on their gentlemanly knowledge.

The quiz includes question time-outs, achievement badges, and account log-in.

Cargill | Turkify It!

Cargill | Turkify It!

This was a short-lived microsite that brought together two sub-brands of a larger brand to generate interest and enthusiasm around cooking with turkey.

The site was responsive and mobile-optimized. Some features included JSON-driven recipes, user-contributed photo gallery, nutrition facts, and seansonal features.
