PETER AND PAM ANDERSON REALTY:::STORY

This client was fun. I guess living in Hawaii had some to do with it and he wrote instruction manuals for pilots in the military during Nam (NAMMM…in raspy movie preview voice) I was the project manager for this website and I was communicating what he wanted and adding some of my creativity to it with my team that our company outsourced to in Manila (Philippines)

MELISSA KUES:::STORY

This one was interesting. Not only did we have to use flash we had to do some tricky java scripting to make the mini picture menu below the flash slideshow.

THE MILLER GORDON TEAM:::STORY

I had to put in time with this one. I had to basically explain the process of how the world of web design works and how to have a good client/project manager relationship with this client. I had to do that to because the client had no clue about graphics, web, etc. So, I patiently took the time to help them understand and finally got this out of this….its amazing as an artist when you just believe in other people’s abilities what you can get out of them…

So…Where do I begin…It all started in my brother’s bedroom…I assume being in Modesto, California doesn’t really have that much options of activities to do for a brilliant minded teenager that has a x-military father and a nurse for a mother on the other end of the country(a whole other story entirely)….so it began with building small database pages and using his big brother’s logo (jussray.com) and knocking it off for a branded site…then evolving to something entirely on its own…he mentions in a conversation…”Hey! I am building this cool new website…tell all your friends!!!”…being an older sibling, of course, I wanted to be supportive and I did what I was asked to do….however, being me…I am very ambitious, so I wanted to take the site to the next level….having already had this idea predating friendster, myspace, hi-five, facebook and all the other unimportant social networking sites…through the daunting task of trying to build our dream of a mega social networking site I took on the task of being marketing person to get the word out about the site and get people to believe in the brand along the way…there was the ambitious magazine editor…which led me to the female computer scientist and her eccentric rapper boyfriend…to a series of music industry parties and some parties of sorts I care not to mention…to event coordinating…then event planning….mixtape sessions late nights in Hollywood…then enlisting the help of mentors and seeking vc capital from overzealous investment bankers…which was interesting, because as I should have known having 4 million dollar carrot dangling in front of your face was almost too go to be true, however we made steps to prep deal memos and all other necessary documents for the injection of financial stimulus into or growing project…with all that said the 4 million dollar carrot dropped due to the lack of follow-up and poor communication on the behave of our primary contact person…with that came loss of faith in the home grown project and absentee-ism of friendships and support from some… I guess through all of this I have learned who are your real friends and how much heart it takes to build something great…

The next phase is coming…

I would like to thank everyone that supported me through the growth of picvibe.com and those that have remained with us though the good, the bad and the ugly…

Stay Tuned…

Patrick McCullogh is a great personal friend of mine that runs a printing business called Overnight Press and has done a lot of environmental efforts in the community…great guy…

So he reached out and wanted me to do a basic landing page design…and I came up with this…

Wow…I didn’t know I had this in me…Interior is insane…

I usually like to create my website design in illustrator then export them over to Photoshop. Client gave me a rough sketch to create a user interface from. I combined my Abobe Illustrator and Abobe Photoshop Techniques in the spirit of Syd Mead to create this Salvador Dali influenced web interface layout…I know that was a mouthful…
