saldanah dotcom   Recent Websites  –  Here are a few websites I’ve built lately with my own hands and brains. Visit Blair's excellent Amazon E-Store: cool, essential stuff for you to discover. Click here.
    These will all open in a new window, just close that window to get back here.  
 
Sala & Sons   Local construction firm Sala & Sons needed a refresh of their web presence (boy, did they ever!) and I was tasked to make that a reality. Of course, a website is a living thing, and must grow and change over time. So we’re going around and doing more photography in the spring.  
Green Power Factor   I’m the Creative Director for energy startup Green Power Factor. I designed and built this site, designed all the art, all the ephemera, logos, tables, and did most of the writing. I even narrated the video on the home page! Like all websites, it changes over time, as it should.  
James M. Bello & Associates   The catchphrase for Mr. Bello’s development firm is; “Developing America, One Home At A Time”. And they really live and breathe that sentiment. They offer the highest-quality you’ll ever find in home and commercial construction, just take a look at their testimonials page “In Their Own Words” to see how happy their customers are.  
Harvey Ehrlich   Artist & designer Harvey Ehrlich’s signature site. He was very specific as to what he wanted the site to look like. And I nailed it! Of course, he’s very happy with how it turned out. Just what he wanted. Naturally, I made sure it fit perfectly on an iPad as well, by design.  
A2A Equipment   Client reports dramatic uptick in business since we put together this site. Every time I drive by his shop, there’s stacks of new tractors waiting to be prepped and delivered to happy new customers. Also, this is fine example of having a simple Wordpress blog associated with your site – great for keeping your customers informed and entertained, and great for SEO too. He’s also got a second WP blog to sell used equipment on.
Warden’s Backscratcher   And here’s a link to the big version of the “Warden’s Backscratcher” comic that I built to Tony’s writing… I shot the pictures, but we were not shooting with doing a comic strip in mind. Actually, Tony wanted his copy to go as individual blog posts in Warden’s Blog; and I thought, why not make this a comic strip? Sure came out great, if I do say so myself. Lots of others think so, too.
Luxury Apartments/ Condos Website   I had an idea for a dual-purpose website for the higher-end condo-apartment complexes, to use the site as a sales tool and as a service for the residents… I built this site as a demo. All the pages have real content, however fictional. This is a demo after all, albeit a fully-functioning demo. There’s also various before-and-after images that animate to show the retouching that’s possible to make photos look better, right there on the home page. I love the Weather Underground weather report widget in the sidebars! :-D
Estate Living   This is a “home for sale” website taken to an extreme level. You’ll notice it’s kind of “information overload”, but that’s what they wanted. Check out the PDFs, and all forty-two tabs in the navigation bar [sarcasm]. But it sure is a nice site, all the information about the home you’d ever want!
ALLTEC Products   Big site, lots of cool power-washer-stuff to see. Nice feeling to it, lots of interesting content. Be sure to see the downloadable Mobile Applications Bulletins PDFs I designed and built (on the Mobile page, has extra navigation items). This is a solution I developed to better document ALLTEC’s achievements and help them sell more mobile machines. They’re very pleased!
    My biggest problem with building websites (believe it or not) is getting the content from the client! They see other sites I’ve done, they know they want a website, they hire me to build it for them, but it’s very difficult to to get them to give me the content for their site. I’ll help them write it, I’m an excellent writer & editor, especially for marketing copy, but it’s like herding cats. Heck, it’s their business, they’re the ones who know what they do, but they have to tell me, so I can put it on their site for them. You’d think that would be the easiest part, but nooooo....
