Shopify Theme

Ben Buie | 9/8/15

This was a fun project and a little bit stressful. The fun was because I got to develop the Shopify theme from the ground up using the new Shopify Plus features, the stress was because they added several pages and features after I gave the them an estimate. We went a little over budget (it Read More >>

Summit Access WordPress Theme

Ben Buie | 8/26/15

This was an interesting project. I don’t usually build websites using an existing theme, but that was the client’s request so I obliged.  It worked out and their bill was under 2k, which was nice for them. I installed the Bridge theme on Pantheon, did some initial theme setup, and then asked the client to take Read More >>

Vu Digital Web App

Team: Ben Buie | 7/7/15

This was definitely my favorite project so far. I loved the team, the technology, and the product. Plus, I got to design and develop everything on the front-end from scratch (besides the site header design). I setup an MVC architecture using Angular. I used the built-in ngRouter until I realized that uiRouter offered features that I needed Read More >>

SpaceNav Redesign/Redevelop

Ben Buie | 5/20/15

I’m no graphic designer, but I do have more of an eye for design than the typical developer and I do enjoy good UX/UI. So, when SpaceNav asked me to redesign and redevelop the front end of their web app I was definitely excited. The requirements included giving the app a “modern look and feel” and Read More >>

Searchlight UX/UI

Ben Buie | 4/27/15

I keep getting clients wanting more than just development. Searchlight came looking for help designing their website and (ultimately) their business. Our initial meetings were fun getting to know their vision and then I jumped into design. Because the core of their business is search, I began out of the norm by designing their search results Read More >>

Learning Laravel

Ben Buie | 4/10/15

I’ve been a huge fan of Laravel ever since we built an app for Crocs with it at Voltage. In 2014, some developers at Voltage wanted to join a Laravel meetup but found that there wasn’t one east of the Mississippi. So, they started one and I’ve been a part of it ever since. We Read More >>

Fjallraven Re-design

Ben Buie | 3/31/15

This project was basically complex theme hacking. I hate theme hacking because I have to deal with all the bugs/nuances of other people’s work without the benefit of being familiar with the whole codebase. It was fun to get a little more experience with Shopify. A couple challenges were getting the color thumbnails on the Read More >>

Hookify Feature Addition

Ben Buie | 3/27/15

Corvida Software hired me to add a feature (tracer) to their Hookify app. The feature is pretty cool, it allows someone to quickly ping any endpoint on the web and test the responses. You can save these “traces” for later so you can ping at anytime. It also saves past responses. I quoted this project Read More >>

Node.Js App

Ben Buie | 3/10/15

I took a couple hours today and last week to get some Node.js practice. I built a basic app that can take an image upload and display it. The app was surprisingly simple to write. I used two packages: node-formidable for parsing form data and fs for handling the image.  

Voltage Internal Business System Architecture & UX/UI Design

Ben Buie | 2/18/15

I can’t talk publicly much about this project out of respect for Voltage, but I wanted to include it in my projects because it was a great opportunity for me to continue honing my skills of UX/UI Design as well as back-end architecture. Steven and I worked together to lay out early wireframes of the Read More >>
