Based out of Thunder Bay, Ontario, Thunderstone Pictures is a film production company that has won numerous awards for outstanding filmmaking.
I had previously developed a website for Thunderstone Pictures, but as it grew as a company, so did its need for a more robust CMS-driven website.
The site is built using Wordpress which fulfills Thunderstone's need for a portfolio manager, a content manager and a blogging platform.
Steve Baker Tattoos
Steve Baker is one of the best tattoo artists I've ever seen. The incredible work featured in his jaw-dropping portfolio speaks for itself. With that in mind, Steve needed a way to bring his portfolio to the web to showcase to prospective clients and generate buzz about his new business venture.
I designed and built Steve's site using HTML, CSS and Flash. The main core of the site uses a flash gallery viewer that makes the portfolio come to life in exciting and dynamic ways.
Medicine Wheel Spirit Singers
Medicine Wheel Spirit Singers are an Anishnabe drumming group from the Thunder Bay area. They contacted me looking for a website that was easy to maintain so that they could showcase their photos and music.

Dead Celebrity is a rock band that has become well established in the greater Toronto area. The band is very serious about self promotion, hoping one day to get a professional record deal.
This is the newest site design and implementation for Dead Celebrity. While the old flash site received lots of praise and gained the band industry attention, it was too cumbersome to update, making it seem as though they weren't up to anything recent. This implementation uses PHP and MySQL for dynamic database-driven content, updated through a front end content management system. The design also features a one-page load which allows for seamless streaming mp3 playback.
Sawmill Creek – “Carpe Weekendum”
Sawmill Creek Wine came up with a summer '06 marketing campaign called "Carpe Weekendum". They needed an interactive micro site developed for the online portion of the campaign.

This site was designed by me and heavily employs xHTML, CSS and PHP.

I developed this site while working for Networx Internet & Networking Solutions. The old Speakers Gold website was functional, but cumbersome and difficult to keep up to date. The owner wanted a design that was not only easy to navigate but also one that popped off the screen. The new design is full of vibrant colours and is much more modular and easy to manage. It also provides users with a much-needed and easy-to-use speaker and topic browsing system. I designed and built this site using HTML, CSS, PHP and Flash.
