"Friendship is not about who you've known the longest. It's about who walked into your life, said "I'm here for you" and proved it."


Robert Stuart Salon

  The Robert Stuart Salon website was designed to reflect the structures, textures, and colors found in the actual salon on Amsterdam Ave. in New York City.  This site features a 3D logo, seamless textures created from photos of salon decor, and a QuickTime VR tour of the salon courtesy of Eclectrix, Inc.  I also did photography for the interiors, Robert, and the fashion models shown on the site.


Roher/Sprague Partners

  This Roher/Sprague Partners website was designed for simple maintenance as well.  In addition to a normal site design, I also created a cascading style sheet based theme for use in FrontPage 2002 in order to apply a branded look to the automated SharePoint Team Services subwebs used on the extranet collaboration sites.  The collaboration extranet sites offer multi-user discussion forums, file sharing, and contact management using a SQL Server back end. 

Atos Origin Intranet

   This site is one of the largest I've worked on.  Shown to the left is the final incarnation of the employee handbook section which uses frames, ASP programming, SQL Server 2000, and word documents converted to HTML.  This section alone consists of a couple hundred pages.  The TOC and cross-referencing links (to other sections or to related form files) are database driven.  I was responsible for the design and layout of most of the pages.  The left navigation is also database driven for ease of maintenance and scalability.  This involved two loops from two tables; one for the main sections and one for the sub-sections of the knowledge base.  The formatting is controlled with a global style sheet.  Collaboration and development was done through an IIS5 server on Windows 2000 with SQL Server.  Circa 2000.

Rockefeller Risk Advisors

   This site uses my single file independent user interface technique.  ASP programming was used to control the links in the user interface and also change the imagery in the upper right corner on each section.  Circa 2001.

Adam Lein's Puzzled

    This web site design was in use from Dec. 1996 through Dec. 1997.  It featured invisible frames such that the clickable menu puzzle pieces will remain stationary while the content could scroll.  It also featured a technique using the table background tag attributes that made for a transparent layer effect.  During mid 1997, the puzzle pieces image map was replaced with a dynamic flash 2 image.  Also found in the content of this site was a javascript new-window image browser that allowed users to choose the image to view and then preview that image.

     This is a web site design created in the early spring of 1997 for Hyperactive Media Systems.  It's design was such that it could be easily changed to support future HTML conventions such as DHTML and CSS1 when those features did become available.  It uses a site wide linked cascading style sheet to define the styles used in the site's construction.  The semi-transparent effect done with table background image attributes is also seen here.  An impressive feature to this site was it's animated spinning rap-logo which was origionally illustrated by Stephen Howard, 3 dimensionally modeled by Adam Lein, then animated by Matthew Johnston in 3DS MAX.
