Heminway & Hamlen

The Llewellyn folks asked me if I could do a site in one day. I was a little skeptical but I said I could do a quickie with a child theme. That’s how I built a site for the Portland, Maine law firm Heminway & Hamlen. Actually I spent two days on it.…

Look Better, Feel Better

This is another website I coded for Llewellyn Creative, in the fall of 2014. Its is the site for plastic surgeon Rita Sadowski’s own clinic. There is some stylish javascript scrolling on the procedures pages. See the body page and hit the items on the left nav.

The Wrestling Hub

The Wrestling Hub

Here is a quick site I built for a blogger.  It is nicely responsive, and loads Copperplate on its headings.

It uses the very reliable Mobile Client Detection plugin code responsive architecture with your PHP. It lets you use the following very useful conditionals:

is_desktop() is_mobile() is_tablet() is_chrome() is_explorer()

I used Login with Ajax to make a login that does not take you away from the home page when you login.…
