DMH & Partners Logo

screen shot

David, the "D" in DMH & Partners, wanted me to design a logo for his consultancy. I chose this design, in part, because it's circular nature conveys a sense of being part of a network & the target in the middle suggests precision and focus. It also has a little figure-ground illusion to it. If you look closely, you can make out "dmh" formed within the negative space of the logo.

I was hired by Hunt & Gather, a local interior decorator store, to design their Web Site. They wanted more of a "brochure" style site than actual e-commerce.

The gallery is database driven and works using a Javascript layer for dynamic image replacement which degrades gracefully to a server side PHP script.

An interesting feature of the gallery is that mousing over a medium sized image creates a scrolling zoom view on the right hand side, which is a great method of showing product detail unobtrusively.

Another neat feature is the gallery's "ask a question" link. The user can put a marker anywhere inside the image, for example if they're wanting to point out a particular item in the photograph. On submission, the question is emailed to the store with a link to the item's image. If a marker was set, that will appear also.

The Web Site features a custom content management system for adding and deleting items from the gallery, managing the customer mailing list, sending mailing list announcements and and posting store news.

The gallery admin uses AJAX technology to eliminate the need for browser refreshes. It allows an easy means to mark items as sold, delete items and edit the title and dealer id for each item. There are visual cues if an item is missing information. Since there are many dealer booths in the store, the gallery can be viewed by dealer to make it easy to figure out when items have sold.

In addition to the site I also designed their logo, business and store cards. I still do product photography for the Web Site on a regular basis.

Asset Management PHP Script

Andrew at Elizabeth Truck Center was in need of a digital asset management PHP script - something they could use on their Web Site to easily upload & manage product photos and descriptions. It also had to be incredibly easy for staff to use.

For this project I created a lightweight admin script using AJAX to update the mysql database. The advantage of using AJAX is that you can actually edit Title, SKU, Price and Availability right there on the page, instead of having to click edit for each item (which would be much more time consuming). Since the "onchange" event handler is used to trigger the AJAX post there's not even a need to click "save". Updates just happen in real time, more or less. When you click edit, the item details appear in a lightbox.

This also features an install script, configurable thumbnail and large image sizes, digital watermarking of the large photos, the ability to independently set items-per-page for user and admin and forgot password/change password functions for the administrator.

I've set up a demo you can try for yourself:

and the admin page is located at:

http://www.martin-evans.com/demos/productdb/admin/

User name = demo@martin-evans.com
Password = demo

(though these are prefilled so there's no need to type them in).

Give it a try and feel free to add or delete products, upload images or change an item's status then witness how the changes affect the user's view. The database will be reset to it's original state once per day.

Stephanie needed a Web Site designed to publicize and generate leads for her upcoming package garden tour of the Cotswolds in England. It was built using XHTML, CSS and YUI grids. Many of the photos were provided by Stephanie, but a handful were creative commons licensed photos we got permission to use.

I later designed a flyer to advertise the Web Site.
