Aubrey Therkelsen

Aubrey is a photographer and designer from New Jersey who asked me to create a comprehensive portfolio and blog that would showcase her vast amounts of undergraduate and post graduate work.

I created a digital portfolio website for her which featured all basic contact information and a plethora of gallery pages to display the enormous amount of work Aubrey has created over the years.

The site was built in WordPress by modifying the Yoko theme with custom graphics and CSS. It is a responsive layout, adapting to various screen dimensions.

I worked directly with Aubrey to create the style of the site. It was a challenge to maintain a theme which would not distract the viewer from her work while adding aesthetic appeal to the site.

Testimonial

I came to James Minshall for help designing my fine art portfolio website. James had very little direction as to how I wanted to represent my professional work; it’s hard to imagine a website from scratch. James was able to ask questions pertaining to my personal prefereces in design and color, in order to pull out information that enabled him to pinpoint a professional, appropriate and creative website. It was exactly what I wanted and needed. He drafted several very different mockups to give me interface, font, color, and overall design options. I couldn’t be more pleased with the final result!

James Minshall

My personal website, created in WordPress by modifying the Yoko theme. It is a constant experiment in web design where I test plugins, javascript, create and optimize content for SEO and blog.

I began working on this site independently of my freelance design in 2011 and the site has grown steadily. I use it to write about news and science, post humor and videos or just vent my thoughts.

The site is build with custom graphics, a PHP function that rotates background imagery, contact info, social media integration, various Javascript snippets such as an RSS based news ticker and much more. It is responsive and degrades based on screen width for any size device.

Day Creature

Travis Butler is an artist and designer who works with fabrics, dyes and found objects. He received a BA in Studio Art and Art History from Elon University in 2010, then continued his studies in textiles at the Kansas City Art Institute.

I created a digital portfolio website for Travis which featured basic contact information and numerous gallery pages to display much of Travis’ undergraduate work. The site was built to be creative and reflect Travis’ style utilizing semi transparent navigation and menus over top of his sketches which incorporated into the background textures and rotated when the site was loaded.
