Site Launch: Sparkabilities

Posted in Accessibility, News, Web Standards

Screen shot of the Sparkabilities siteSometimes the small, fast-paced projects can present the most rewarding sense of accomplishment. My latest freelance project, the second of a pair of quick projects, is another fun collaboration with Mark Reeves of Reeves Design House. As the site explains, Sparkabilities is a series of DVDs for babies and toddlers designed to develop essential learning skills by building cognitive skills. There are a number of Flash video samples as well as a shopping cart system built by another developer. I must admit, after a long and stressful day at the office, it’s nice to come home and work on a project with playfully creative photos and imagery. And yes, I watched the animation of the “big and small” dogs several times with a smile on my face! Take a look at the Sparkabilities site.

Site Launch: R. Harper + Associates

Screen shot of the R. Harper + Associates siteI’ve been busy working on a couple freelance projects with Reeves Design House. The first one is for R. Harper + Associates, a management consulting firm in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. It’s a simple site with a small number of pages, but I still had a good time building it since the visual design is so strong. Regardless of the size of the client or project, I enjoy the challenge of creating code that is as clean, accessible, and maintainable as possible. It’s also a nice change of pace to work on a small project with a quick schedule. Take a look at the R. Harper + Associates site.
