Charnas Law Firm also wanted a refresh, with a bold design and some advanced -- but easy-to-use -- features.
At the moment, I use Drupal for the majority of sites I build, as it provides a powerful and highly customisable base upon which I can create simple, user-friendly sites with all of the desired features.
A good friend of mine is an excellent photographer, and needed a website to publicise his work and advertise his services. It is a simple, clean design that neatly showcases his abilities.
I built a new site for Andrea Cagan in 2012 - she needed a blog so her old static HTML was not really up to the task.
The new year brought another change from the neighborhood council sites. The first site of 2011 was a website for a class of high school students wanting to use it to stay in touch and be notified of reunions.
2010 brought a return to the neighborhood council websites, with Atwater Village being the next to be upgraded.
The last site in 2009 was Leverage Lease, Inc., a break from the Neighborhood Council sites. They wanted a simple CMS, with only a few customised features.
South Robertson followed Hollywood Hills West in 2009, and was a bit of a change from the previous sites. Rather than a specific homepage, they wanted it to act more like a blog, showing the recent posts. Of course this is the default in Drupal, and so didn't pose a problem!
I'm not entirely sure why this is a "Neighborhoods Council", as opposed to a "Neighborhood Council" - but I assume it covers more than one area!
Mid-Town North Hollywood was the first in a series of Neighborhood Council websites I built. The next, in 2009, was Hollywood Hills West.
In 2008, I built my first full website using Drupal. This was for the Mid-Town North Hollywood Neighborhood Council in LA, and allows them to organise and publicise their regular meetings, events, and other important news.
