Deep Carnivale is a new street fair and book festival in Tampa’s historic Ybor City. It features readings by authors and poets of their own works, exhibits by local artists and booths operated by area bookstores and libraries. Plus lots of music and things for kids to do.
Ybor Festival of the Moving Image
The Ybor Festival of the Moving Image, which just completed its seventh annual event, is an eclectic and fun film festival that showcases new films and videos by artists, animators and documentarians from around the world. It’s spiced by its locale â€” in historic Ybor City â€” and by some usually unusual performance pieces.
Spirit Cove Properties
What happens when a couple merges their personal spiritual awareness with hard-edged professional planning skills and community development drive?
Spirit Cove, a collection of homestead sites on a mountain in North Carolina, where even the wildflowers are considered in the site plans.
This website was developed to advertise the development. I think it communicates the sales message, yet maintains the unique and gentle nature of both the land and the developers.
Chloe Coney is a local activist, neighborhood organizer, and an all-around sparkplug of a woman whose charismatic leadership helped to attract $30 million in new housing and commercial development to one of Tampa’s poorest neighborhoods.
So when Chloe decided to run for her neighborhood’s county commission seat, and asked me to help with her campaign, I couldn’t wait to say yes.
In her first attempt at elected office and after announcing only three months before election day, Chloe lost the election by only 642 votes.
JayaRose.com — a first for me, an all-Flash website. The Flash web programming and presentation tool is a powerful, but one
easily given over to extravagant flourishes. Not always my cup of tea. But I rather like this site. It is complex, multifaceted, yet elegant and straight-forward — not unlike the client herself.
ConfrontationPoint.org — Confrontation Point is an innovative summer camp for Christian youth and their church youth leaders. During week-long sessions, teenagers and adults may help repair the roof of an elderly widow’s home, gain self-confidence by rappelling down a rock face, or seek spiritual insights solving a “mystical mystery” involving service to others. The website features an introductory Macromedia Flash movie designed to appeal to teen youth groups, who frequently find and recommend the church camp they want to attend.
HAPediatrics.com — Hartford Area Pediatrics is a small, single-practitioner office that wanted to both attract new patients,
and to serve current children and their parents. To orient new patients (and to speed new patient processing), the website features downloadable and printable office forms. Answers to questions frequently asked by parents, such as childhood immunization schedules, also appear. The staff has also hand-picked a list of other websites containing useful information about child health.
DINeighborhoodPlan.com — The residents of Davis Islands, a small island community in Tampa Bay, want to preserve the special character of their neighborhoods, where houses built in the 1920s are attracting young families, downtown office workers, and retirees. A task force was formed to write an official neighborhood development plan. The website I created allows the task force to publish meeting agendas and minutes, a calendar of events, and a forum where Davis Islanders can express their concerns.
CT-Housing.org — The Connecticut Housing Coalition represents more than 250 member organizations engaged in advocating, constructing and managing affordable housing for Connecticut residents. They needed a modern website that communicated the passion of activists and the determination of homeowners who without the member groups were too often litterally left out in the cold. I created a website that addresses the organization’s membership, their clients, and agencies funding housing programs.
Nuzee.com — In another lifetime, I was a newspaper reporter and editor. So Nuzee, a news website, appealed to me. Nuzee was one of the first news aggregators, doing in 1998 what we now take for granted on sites such as Google news and Yahoo news, “personal pages” such as NetVibes.com, Rojo.com and ProtoPage.com.
