Hardin County Water District No. 1
I created this utility website design for Hardin County, Western Kentucky’s first district water company. A former coworker of mine at Fischbach USA had since been hired for an executive director position at HCWD. He hired me to create a new responsive website, since their old design was decidedly dated. I had a lot of content to work with. Because of this, I reworked the design by splitting the site menu into two. The main pages group into a sticky menu that stays visible as the user scrolls down.
Kentucky Utility Website Design Packed with Features
Prospective contractors make up a lot of HCWD’s traffic. They can now access project bid information when they fill out a secure form. I also created a new password protected page. This way, only the HCWD employees could have access to the secure company documents. I reorganized the Frequently Asked Questions from the old site’s page as well. It now breaks down into a simple anchored list. Thus, this Kentucky utility company’s customers are able to quickly reach all the information they need to.
The website is a hub in the Hardin County, KY community, which includes the cities of Elizabethtown and Radcliff. Therefore, the site’s events calendar and news need to be easy to update. I uploaded a short Youtube tutorial video for the site administrators, because they did not have much experience with making their own web updates. I offer this service to all of my clients at no extra cost. Visit the website here!

Wolfe County Public Library
Muhlenberg County Public Libraries referred WCPL to me since I had performed work for them in the past. Wolfe County Public Library’s existing website was not up to snuff. It was very out of date. Worse than that, it was inaccessible for patrons. They needed a responsive website design makeover. I was ready to work with their staff in order to create the solution.
Feature rich responsive website design in Kentucky
The new website layout’s look centered around green hues. These echo the logo design that I created. A responsive slider is the centerpiece of the layout. Photos of their beautiful facilities and their happy patrons using their services greet users. Their events calendar is yet another premium feature. It displays upcoming children’s storytimes and special library programs. Staff can easily update the library calendar using this responsive website design. I created a tutorial video to help. Wolfe County residents can also subscribe to their events directly using their own online calendar apps.
Is your website hard to use? If so, all the special features and attractive graphics are pointless. The site condenses down nicely on any device. Mobile devices reveal a convenient flyout menu. A local library is a lot more than just a media collection. It is also a community center. Whether using a desktop computer, mobile phone, or tablet, WCPL’s catalog is universally accessible. All users can now learn what their local library can do for them. Both patrons and staff were pleased with their finished product. Woo! View the library site here.

This general contractor reached out to me to help establish their online presence with a new construction website design. The business owner had over four decades of experience. He needed a designer who could get things done efficiently and listen to all of his needs. He outlined his vision to me in a series of face to face meetings, then we went to work.
SquareFoot Construction specializes in whole house remodeling here in Lexington, Kentucky, as well as the surrounding region. They are also experts in the field of new home construction. In addition, SquareFoot have also established a very popular sunroom brand. Since they had built a variety of homes and additions, they needed an attractive, accessible outlet to showcase their portfolio.
Building a construction website design
SquareFoot Construction provided me with actual blueprints used for their homes, amongst their other photos and documents. I used the blueprints to spice things up as background images for the slider at the top. The “Our Work” portfolio section features a series of photo lightbox galleries. These display “before and after” photos of their work, as well as the stories of how the jobs were done. A floating widget with the links to the business’ social media accounts stays on the screen as users scroll down.
It is often necessary for a business owner to show clients examples of work while out in the field. Also, it may not always be convenient to carry a laptop along with you. Therefore, this responsive construction website design is a must. It condenses down perfectly for smartphone or tablet viewing. Users can access content both quickly and easily.

A complete overhaul was in order for my hometown’s outdated library website design. The existing site was rife with errors at the time. It also had a lot of content that was very hard to navigate. The design was unattractive as well. Naturally, MCPL called me in to save the day.
I began by bringing their web presence up to date with a clean white design. It features their new logo, which I also designed. Then, I added a colorful image slider, which included relevant, royalty free stock photography. I also reorganized and streamlined their existing navigation menu. It now includes just four main headings with drop down menu items.
Library staff members worked with me to find the best way to simplify and condense the original content. We came together to create a system that staff could easily update by themselves. This is so important for a library website design.
Additionally, the sleek online calendar displays upcoming events. These include happenings such as storytimes and book signings. The website calendar can easily sync with iCal, Google Calendar, and others.
Patrons can access all of the libraries’ online databases in order to check out books and other media. The complete catalog is conveniently at users’ fingertips. It is directly searchable right from the library website design’s main menu.
I also built a separate mobile version of the site. This enables patrons to keep up with both library branches on the go using their smartphones and tablets. Customers may still access the full catalog and other features with the separate mobile site. This is a complete web solution.
