Completed: Under a two-hour turnaround inside a work day.
Took the election map elements from the original voter guide standalone page and embedded an iframe on the front page, while pulling latest election headlines and links. All graphics were made either with Photoshop or Illustrator.
Layout: Designed and sliced in Photoshop and coded the content in Dreamweaver.
Map Graphics: I edited three New Jersey graphic maps in SVG in Adobe Illustrator to give districts/counties some gradient color and some outer glow along the border. I later exported it in compressed JPEG image format.
It was all Photoshop for doing image manipulation and fade-in/fade-outs and graphics, while keeping the font and colors consistent with what Major League Baseball used for their branding. HTML and CSS was used for image and object page positioning.
Quick update. Last month, I made some slight alterations to the page layout and page logo, live video is on with a weekly high school football highlight show and the game of the week, and my work locked in a sponsor, Velocity Sports!
Here’s hoping for more page views and more income! 🙂
A special section focusing on New Jersey state politics and latest headlines from the state capitol. I made the title banner in Adobe Photoshop. That pen tool was useful in making the silhouette of the New Jersey capitol dome.
Page was designed in Adobe Photoshop and primed in Dreamweaver. Our live video provider Livestream.com allowed us to use their video player, live chat and video library widgets for content. Proprof.com provided free polls.
UPDATE: I’m happy to announce that my live sports video page got a big-money sponsorship deal with an area store and that this page will go live this fall, right in time for high school sports season!
