Back in July of 2013, I created the website for conradhomes.ca
I had a blank slate to create what my client needed. This has been a great project for me because it encompasses my graphic and web design skill set.
Originally I was sent drawings from the architect that needed to be edited. The original drawings had line weights that were too thin and the images lacked contrast. The images were also way too large in size to fit on a screen. Each view from front elevation, side and back elevation, floor plan etc, were all separate files that needed to be edited and put together. The spec sheets were put together from all the different files.
My work with the UX of the site was of a clean, easily found information. I still use story boarding on paper to figure this out.
I have been able to utilize all my design software including Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign and Dreamweaver. I am not a programmer but I learned how to edit Java and PHP scripts to do what I needed assets like forms, to do. This site was designed before responsive sites were common so my goal in the future is to make it responsive.
Conrad Homes bought 6 lots in the Southcreek subdivision in Mount Brydges. Since then they have sold 4 lots and another is expected to go soon.
Jim Conrad is a very skilled builder and really cares about quality. We know that well because he helped us build our dream home many years ago.
With the help of their Marketing Manager and Real Estate Agent, Denise Pope, I have been able to understand their needs and deliver various assets to them. Most recently I was asked to create posters to be hung in the model home of some of their home designs. I have an example of one of these posters on my site sylverdesign.com under the Illustration menu.
I am very proud of the work that I have been able to create for them and look forward to supporting Jim Conrad in future builds in the London area.
This blog is to showcase my ongoing work.
