Brunton Redesign

Ben Buie | 1/2/15

This was a re-skin of the existing site. Coding on shopify isn’t easy, particularly with version control, but we setup a repo in git and use Ruby to push to the Shopify api when a file changes. The feature I remember most about this project is the menu. One of the principles I code by Read More >>

ClearChoice Migration

Ben Buie | 12/4/14

ClearChoice.com was originally built in Drupal and their team decided to port it to WordPress for several strategic reasons. I was given access to the old site and a charge to re-create the whole thing, except the scheduler (which was ported over by Randy Lybert). This was a fun project because I tried to build Read More >>

Code Snippets

Ben Buie | 12/3/14

One of the things I’m really happy about my last year at Voltage is my focus on creating reusable snippets of code that can be used to quickly deploy features on client sites. I’ve made my repository of code_snippets publicly available so that anyone can take advantage of them. Note, these are not for beginners, Read More >>

UpYourService Re-design

Ben Buie | 12/3/14

When I first got this project, I was hesitant. The goal was to port their old site (which was a mix of one Joomla install and several WordPress sites) into one consistent WordPress install; oh, and not lose money on the project. It turned out to be very difficult. One of the big learnings from Read More >>

Primus Camping

Ben Buie | 12/3/14

Catching up on some projects that I haven’t talked about yet… Primus was the first ecommerce site I built from the ground up on Shopify. It was a good learning experience. Overall, I like Shopify’s platform. It turned out to be easier than I thought it would be to customize the main and collection page Read More >>

Hint Creative

Ben Buie | 8/11/14

I’m super stoked about the recent launch of HintCreative.com. We had a lot of fun getting it pixel perfect for their team. As you can see, it has some pretty cool features including the menu animation using isotope and the mobile menu (visible on smaller browser windows). This WordPress theme uses a lot of advanced Read More >>

Dirty Girl Run Redesign

Ben Buie | 3/21/14

I love projects that take me longer than a week, and this was one of them. This responsive site has three breakpoints (mobile, tablet, desktop) which significantly increased the front-end design time. I had a ton of fun adding in some unusual functionality like loading different images for each breakpoint, and making the homepage slider Read More >>

Brunton Power Calculator App

Ben Buie | 3/20/14

This project got me out of my comfort zone a little bit. Another developer had done some of the initial design for this app and then it was handed off to me to re-write it for a significantly different design. Wading through the code was a little intimidating, but I figured it out and delivered Read More >>

Oktoberfest

Ben Buie | 6/29/13

It may have seemed like I dropped off the face of the planet for the past three weeks, but I’ve been working on several cool projects for Voltage. After completing the Oktoberfest site they offered me a job and I start the end of next week. I had fun getting this site looking almost identical Read More >>

HappyFreebie Site Development

Ben Buie | 5/16/13

Update: this site is now called goodsbee.com I did 90% of the development on the site.
