Web Design

Before I picked up my first camera, I designed my first website. As a filmmaker I strive to represent an idea by establishing an appropriate visual aesthetic, and my goal as a web designer is no different. With constant communication at every step of the process, I work with clients to discover how best to represent not only their brand, but their attitude as people and a company.

Below are a few examples of my work along with the services I provided for each site.

The Yaak Valley Forest Council was created in 1997 by residents of the Yaak Valley in Northwest Montana to implement conservation and restoration programs focused on local habitat and wildlife. The council partners with other grassroots organizations as well as county, state, and federal officials in efforts related to habitat conservation, restoration, connectivity, and scientific research. The Yaak Valley Forest Council website has been online for nearly twenty years, and in 2023, the council reached out to me to improve the site’s functionality, streamline its layout, and take over administration duties.
