QuanticFox is an amazingly talented group of dudes who are kicking out amazing apps specializing in mobile devices. They were so busy with their groundbreaking ideas, they asked me to develop their website. Designed in-house by QuanticFox, they brought me their designs and I pulled them into the great world of Content Management Systems through a custom Drupal website.

Contour-LA developed a great product in an aesthetically pleasing sports gear rack that is built to target sports enthusiasts who need a scalable storage space. The product is minimal and sleek, so they needed a website to match. Designed by &STW, the site meets their needs to a "T" -- developed myself in the Drupal Content Management System, Contour-LA can update their own website content and also manage their own blog content.

BecomingCreative is a daily updated resource of links to fulfill your every creative need! Built in Drupal, so I can easily create new articles and the lists are populated dynamically sorted by category.

I've been working closely with NOW Destinations for several years now, and this is the "2.0" version of their site. It's been through a heavy facelift, but features extraordinary imagery, and is entirely managed by the owners via the Drupal Content Management System.

The Alaska Aces needed the ability to edit/manage their own site content, adding news, photos, and schedule games, so it was decided that Drupal would be the best solution. You wouldn't know the new site was a CMS just by looking, but it is. Most Drupal development was done by the rest of the team at GeoNorth.

& So They Were is a boutique design studio in Los Angeles, CA. Mostly specializing in motion and print design, they have recently begun some web work as well. They came to me from being a previous customer, to help develop their new portfolio site. Needing control over their own content, they definitely needed a Content Management System. In comes Drupal to the rescue, yet again.

TheStatus.com has been a great resource for those under medical care to keep loved ones up to date on their condition. After a decade of the same design and outdated code, it was time for a facelift. Many slick interface tricks and tools were developed just for this project to make the user experience more attractive. Most Ruby on Rails development was done by the rest of the team at GeoNorth.

Rory was looking for a way to expand his small business, without having to hire someone to maintain his website and inventory. Through Drupal's administrative power, he can update his own work as he gets new pieces to show off, without having to bring in a 'web guy' to do it.
