Contracted to create a simple online form that would be used to order customized mailers.
Nothing fancy. Just a way to allow for an Ad Agency to easily accept requests that would be processed, printed, and distributed to locations nationwide.
Included a bit of CSS design with the rounded corners, drop-shadow, and bold headers. But most of the work involved text fields and drop-down menus.
The form functionality includes user-messages that display if required fields are not filled out and a pop-up calendar for selecting dates. Also added a Thank You page for when the form is submitted. All submissions are forwarded to the appropriate company email for review.
The UI for More Coolest consisted of a round theme with a clean look. Menu and Navigation options were straightforward text elements with a subtle orange (CSS3) background gradient for hover effects.
Graphic images were constructed in Illustrator.
The idea here was “fun”, “cool”, and “iconic”.
After obtaining my Adobe Cloud membership, I decided to test out the Business Catalyst web hosting features that were now integrated with Dreamweaver. Nothing fancy or overly complicated…Just something to test the functionality. It was a perfect opportunity to put together an online resume site.
So I purchased the rights to the domain name “hire-nate.com” then proceeded to ponder over layout ideas.
I wanted to create something simple and straightforward that also showcased my ability to create graphic images, design user interface, and apply creative concepts. I decided upon a bold “spotlight” theme that highlighted the content in a beam of light with accents that implied a sense of rugged tech.
Graphics constructed in Illustrator and Photoshop. Layout put together using Dreamweaver, HTML, and CSS.
