Hey, I’m Ryan. I’ve been making web sites and apps for over a decade. I get involved in all aspects of the process, from design to deployment, but I specialize (and love) front-end. I currently work at GYK Antler as a web developer, based in Manchester, NH. I also take on interesting projects in my free time.
Have a project in mind? Just want to chat?
Below I have listed some of my latest work, I try to keep this updated as I complete new projects. Some of these projects are from my own clients, and some are from projects I worked on through the agency I work at. If I include it below, it means I was the only developer involved in building the site.
If you have any questions about any projects below, feel free to contact me!
DGA Productions is a video production company out of Watertown, MA. The agency I work at, GYK Antler, was brought on to design and develop a website that would effectively display their work and allow potential clients a way of getting in touch with them.
The designers at work presented a very clean and bright design that featured a lot of large video displays and lots of parallax functionality. DGA also wanted the parallax to work on mobile as well (we don't get that request too often).
I was the sole developer on the project and ended up using Wordpress as the CMS as the client had experience using it in the past. DGA wanted to be able to adjust content themselves, and they wanted team members to be able to jump in and adjust it without needing to go through a long tutorial. I decided to use some custom post types (such as the videos used throughout the site, their client lists, images, etc.) as they needed heavily-customized options for more of these items. I also created fields for each individual page so that each field was easily editable, and it was clear where they had to go to change copy and content.
Big Brick Productions (yes, I worked on video production sites back-to-back) is the video production department at GYK Antler. They do work for a lot of big-name clients, and they have an impressive collection of work to display. Similar to DGA, they needed a site to showcase their work to potential clients. They also needed to be able to add new case studies quickly and easily. Seeing as DGA worked out very well on Wordpress, we decided to go the same route for Big Brick.
They hired an outside designer, who didn't end up staying on for the design to be finished. That left us with a half-designed site and very little answers as to how it was supposed to function. Fortunately, the guys at Big Brick were very creative and gave LOTS of feedback on how they wanted the site to function. We finished the design on the fly, as the questions and situations arose. It required quite a bit of communication between a few departments, and there were definitely a LOT of last minute changes (and rebuilds), but in the end I think it came out as a pretty unique site.
