DrKotwani.com - WordPress Site

DrKotwani.com – WordPress Site

I recently completed this WordPress site while employed by AgenaAstro.com. This site was commissioned for a Dr. Grace Kotwani and the Grace Clinic. The site was based on the free WordPress theme Cloriato Lite. The only modifications this template received were purely cosmetic. I removed most of the functionality of the site to keep it simple for employees of the Grace Clinic to update the site. The theme was kept clean and minimal as it’s main audience are patients of the clinic many of which are elderly. I tried to keep the Grace Clinics’s logo’s colors in mind with the whole color scheme making use of them where ever possible.  Go checkout the site for yourself DrKotwani.com.

GlopoUsa.com - WordPress Site

GlopoUSA.com – WordPress Site

This WordPress site was put together for a small wholesale company based out of El Monte California, they specialize in childrens toys and accessories. You can checkout their site at www.GlopoUSA.com. The site has a base theme designed by site5.com. I modified their Boldy WordPress theme  to meet the functionality and design specs the company required. I implemented a wholesale quote request form automatically updates parts of the form based on which product they are doing the request from. I also added a few custom sub-menus that were not included with the original template. The sites logo has since been changed by an employee of Glopo Inc and was not my personal work. This project also include social network integration, I went ahead and created each of their profiles Twitter, Facebook, and Google+. These accounts have all been relinquished to the client and are not all associated to their personal accounts.
