Real Estate Sites

Team: Ben Buie Lexi | 12/10/15

I’ve done a little work with Hearthfire Creative in the past couple months that I thought I’d mention. Lexi, the founder, is uses an affordable combination of some cool technologies to improve the usability of real-estate sites. Lexi did most of the work, but reached out to me for some technical help when needed. Both sites Read More >>

Boulder Bike Tours

Ben Buie | 10/21/15

I hired a handyman to do some work on my house and it turned out he needed a website. Like many small businesses, he had a very small budget, so small that I typically can’t help much. I gave him some options and we came up with a plan that worked for him. Herschel, my 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 >>

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 >>

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 >>

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 >>

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 >>
