These past few months, I have had the privilege of working with Jon and Christie Hendersen, owners of Old Mill Feed & Garden in Dallas, Oregon. They contacted me back in October, looking to update their existing website. They wanted to incorporate a couple things into their new site: a fresh look that had a modern-vintage feel, organization and consistency on all pages, and modern, functional technology. They also wanted to be able to update their website easily with minimal help from me. I immediately thought that WordPress would be the best option for them.
After I designed and produced the site, I hired my friend, and former classmate, Lem Canady to do the complex WordPress development on the site. He has done a fantastic job getting it made and setup, all while in school (kudos!). Throughout the process I made sure to choose features that would be easy for Old Mill to understand and update. All in all, I’m very happy with the results, and so are they!
I really love Old Mill’s slogan, “Everything Old is New Again,” and took it to heart when designing this site. They understand and embrace the trend that old items can be refreshed for a modern-vintage feel. You can see this from the type choices to the page layouts. I’m confident it will serve them well in the years to come.

With This Ring Wedding and Event Planning is owned by Katie Zuniga, a wedding and event planner. She is a part of the Studio 430 team, and contacted me to create a website for her business. She felt like she needed to expand from using a blog to using a full-fledged website. A website is a great way to drive traffic your way, and to showcase your work! Katie and her husband Joshua came up with the design that they wanted for the site, and asked me to bring it to life.
I thoroughly enjoyed working with Katie throughout the 2 month process of getting the site online! She’s very organized, and I can tell that she loves her work. Be sure to look for her at the upcoming Oregon Wedding Showcase in Salem, Oregon.
Below you will see a sampling from the website, enjoy!

As you know, this summer I have been interning at Red Pearl Designs. I’ve had the opportunity to work on several different projects for Megan, and just recently finished up making her a business website for Red Pearl Designs. She was unsatisfied with the different template web sites out there, but didn’t know enough about web design to make what she wanted. I helped translate her needs into a design, and she was able to customize everything. A specific high point was the control over her gallery page. I was able to show more images than ever before, without bogging down the site. Hopefully her customers appreciate all the new features on the site!
I had a lot of fun working with Megan on this project, so check out the new diggs!
