Projects That I've Worked On

Sherman Burns

The official band site for Sherman Burns, a Boston-based progressive grunge band. The site includes custom post types for reviews, articles, and gigs. Many of the individual graphics for the site were pulled from album art for the band’s recent CD. I also included several embedded fonts to give the site a more unique look.

Home Page (bottom)

At the bottom of many pages is a list of the band's upcoming gigs. One of my favorite elements of this site's design is the footer.

Tour Page

The Tour page lists the band's upcoming shows in detail, using a WordPress custom post type I created. This post type includes a variety of fields, including date, location, and ticket price.

This page provides a good example of a picture with caption, which I designed to be reminiscent of a polaroid photo.

Source Graphics

Many of the individual graphics used in the site design were taken from this album art provided by the band. I sliced the useful images from this composite and arranged them in a way much more suitable for use in a website.

Jared was excellent to work with. We got together, told him what we had in mind for the site, and he came back with something better than we had even imagined. The website has been huge in helping us promote our music professionally and easily. The site is visually stunning, and the navigation is intuitive. I will absolutely go through Jared for all of my web needs in the future, and recommend him highly to anyone in need of designer with the technical and creative experience to produce the best product possible.
