Farms and Land Realty is a real estate website specializing in larger tracts of hunting and farm lands. They wanted a unique site which reflected the company style and presented their properties in a "user easy" format.

Dan listened to my ideas of how I wanted my website to look and operate. He was then able to turn them into an eye catching but extremely functional and user friendly website.
Paw Prints on my Heart was created as a memorial to a beloved pet. The owner wanted to offer others experiencing a similar loss the opportunity to memorialize their pets. Memorial space is free. Additionally, there is a beautiful memorial pin that may be purchased.

Originally asked to take over management and updating of the site, the existing website template was re-written into a CMS based template to reduce updating costs. Later, working with the existing template, the site was widened from 760 pixel width of the "old" site to 980 pixels, significantly improving the site's read-ability, and recently restyled by the Association's leadership with lively colors and new graphics reflecting the look and feel of an elementary school.
The Sunrise Theater is a non-profit, premiere entertainment venue. It presents a variety of top quality events, from the Metropolitan Opera to local stage productions.
The site needed template updating and module repositioning, component customization, and general site-wide adjustments. Additional effort was given to make the site more "user-friendly".

...our website gets better each time Dan works with it. He understands both our needs and those of our patrons.
A personal site, it is an "old school" format because it is one of the very first designed. It is included to illustrate some of the fun things that can be done - scroll over the pirate images (on the live site). It also shows BLUEwebs graphics abilities.
