Chase "2" Driving School

This Connecticut driving school came to me a couple of years ago with an older, FrontPage-based website. They wanted a design they could maintain with Expression Web, and they wanted it to work well on mobile devices.

I re-designed their site, then migrated their content. One of the features we added was the ability to maintain their class list in a file separate from the web page. I provided them reference documentation so they wouldn't have to learn all about Expression Web — only enough to make their text changes periodically. Since we started, they contact me for small design changes, to streamline new tasks, and for additional coaching on their changes.

This northern California social and service group of US Marines and Naval Corpsmen needed a website to communicate among their members and to let the community know of their activities.

Using their content — text mostly — I found a few images and a YouTube video to provide them a clean website that works in both desktop and mobile environments. I added a login page for members.

Because I'll be managing changes to the website for this group, coaching was limited to answering a few questions about getting the domain and hosting service set up, and discussions about donations via PayPal.
