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 >>

Hewescraft

Ben Buie | 2/16/15

Site Link: Hewescraft.com Skills: Javascript, PHP, WordPress, Google Maps API, Responsive design I think I’ve said this before, but I love when I get a project that I code from the ground up. I like it for several reasons, the most significant of which is that I take pride in the cleanliness of my code. Read More >>

Sherwin Williams WordPress Plugin

Ben Buie | 1/31/15

Skills: PHP, WordPress Plugin Every once in a while a client will come to us with a very tedious task like, “can you update all 300 product SKUs based on this spreadsheet.” Doing this manually is time consuming and prone to error. Luckily, WordPress makes it easy to add  a plugin to the site and Read More >>

Brands @ Sherwin Williams Product Redesign

Ben Buie | 1/17/15

I’ve done several projects and many updates for Sherwin over the past year, but nothing that was significant until recently. This site is a beast. The client didn’t have us build the site originally but they’ve had us do all the updates (not good, I hate some people’s code). In addition, the site uses WordPress multi-site which Read More >>

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 >>
