Turning Point (TP) is a non-profit, Christ-centered drug and alcohol recovery center for men located in Thorsby, AL. TP had a website built in Joomla that they found inflexible and difficult to update. After visiting the center and meeting with the staff, the new site was moved to a new domain name on a different host with a WordPress CMS.
The project involved photography, information architecture, SEO, design and domain management skills. TP staff was trained to do basic editing tasks before launch. Branding was created by Ad Spark.

Entering a new chapter in the life of the first fruits ministry required a new and improved web site. The previous site was built years ago and needed to be modernized and made easier to use. I was pleased to continue working with them to improve their e-commerce and marketing capabilities while helping them maintain the flavor of the original site and branding.
The design is cleaner, more modern and built on a responsive platform that adjusts for mobile devices. They have a blog, an integrated shopping cart and newsletter capability. They also added social media. In addition, responsive email templates were created to reflect the new feel of the brand.

Client first fruit enterprises wanted a unique email announcement for their 2012 Holiday Open House. This email was created and sent via an open source email publishing platform.
Built on WordPress using a premium theme, this site is designed to facilitate communication among and between the women of Oak Mountain Church. I helped their editorial committee with the setup, design, and function of the site. After some training, the committee is now responsible for the content and upkeep. The site includes plugins for recommending books, editorial flow, photo stream, security, SEO and other standard functions.
This WordPress site was designed for selective publishing to member groups and lead generation. Plugins were used to implement ecommerce, newsletters, and membership. Theme was a free theme with some modification for this client.
