To keep up with the latest web trends, Goldlilys Media updated the entire static HTML site to a fully functional website with a gorgeous design that matches the organization's theme and ideals. Goldlilys Media interviewed the staff of Women's Museum of California to gather enough information about their organization to translate to the website medium. Made it possible so that adding contents to the website won't need any programming knowledge, but with only a few selections from forms using Drupal CMS allows the display of sections in any way imaginable.
Design and Theming
For Graphics / UX Designers
Do you need help transforming your amazing design to a functional website? I collaborate with designers and provide a developer’s perspective to make sure that the design created is unique, UX friendly, flexible and functional once it is implemented as a website.
- Apply interactivity using jQuery
- Mobile browser friendly using Responsive Web Design
- Follows the W3C Web Standards so that it works on all major browsers including Chrome, Firefox, IE, Opera, and Safari
For Potential Clients
You have a choice between the designers I partner up with on the right side of the services section. Since everyone has a different preference in how you want your design to look or stylized, I give you an option as to which designer you want to work with.
Better way to think of this is if you want to redecorate your home or customize your car, shouldn't you have a choice as to how that’s done? Some people like minimalistic style, while some people like full blown fancy and loud websites. It is really up to you and your preferences.

Setup the Nivo Slider functionality on the homepage to display services offered by Brian Testo Associates. Themed and built out the Auctions/Liquidation Calendar listings and its main pages.
Brian Testo Associates helps financial institutions, legal firms, corporations and other professional service organizations to maximize return on their assets through appraisals.
Build out the back-end with Drupal and creation of a custom module to make AJAX updates directly to forms instead of going to another page. The planner also contains the ability to send out reminders through email or SMS messages using Tropo. The reminder depends on certain conditions the user chooses on their profile. Besides coding the back-end, also themed the front-end user interface with jQuery library for interactivity and CSS.
Integrated the theme layer to Drupal 7 from Photoshop using a Fusion subtheme. Utilized CSS and jQuery to enable the dynamic slideshows and adjust the speed settings. Fixed bug issues during QA and discussed best way to display images so that the texts are displayed as clearly as possible.
Made sure the site is compatible with all browsers including mobile version. Added custom validation to sign up forms.
Appiness Fulfilled is a sweepstakes site for Verizon Wireless where visitors can sign up for the event and possibly win their dream vacation.
Themed the Front-End using Fusion Subtheme from a Photoshop designed by Saemidori Designs, CSS and XHTML. Customized the look and feel of the site according to how they want sections to be defined. Each section has its own "style", which can be seen by the color changes.
Lots of Q&A between the designer and I, the developer/themer, to get exactly what they want out of the site. For that reason, made sure that adding contents to a section makes sense to a non-technical company and that user interface is straight forward.
