Constellation Design


Animal Rescue Friends of Idyllwild.

This small shelter in southern California was on a tight budget and essentially needed an attractive way to solicit donations and to communicate with their community and volunteers. See site...


The Chiropractic Journal Online.

Constellation was enlisted to provide an online companion to the printed Chiropractic Journal, a trade publication for the chiropractic profession, to replace the rudimentary site they had been using. It is intended to showcase whatevdr portion of their print publication they choose and host a searchable library of years’ worth of Journal archives. This one was a little different in that it was not to use a database but be maintained and updated solely via FTP uploaded files, so we built it in PHP without any conventional CMS structure, providing easy-to-use file templates for the client to utilize when filing new stories and articles.

Electric Vehicle Supply.

This venture for converting gasoline cars to electric motors and supplying parts for such endeavors was done on a minimalist budget to promote the business. See site...


ErikLundegaard.com.

Erik Lundegaard is a film and book critic and blogger whose work has been seen on MSNBC.com, The Huffington Post, MSN, The Seattle Times, New York Times Magazine, and other publications. Constellation created his website to archive his published works as well as host his ongoing blog postings and film reviews. See site...


Flotsametrics and the Floating World.

Constellation created this Website to help author Curtis Ebbesmeyer promote the release of his book, Flotsametrics and the Floating World. The site contains media clips, author information, samples of the author’s Beachcombers' Alert! newsletter, and an incorporated blog using a customized Blogger account. See site...


The Grand Salami.

Constellation Design is building the new online companion to the baseball print magazine The Grand Salami. The site is designed with the goal of easy posting and maintenance by the client and uses the WordPress blogging software to achieve this. Using an existing WordPress template to start in order to keep the cost down (custom work takes more time), custom tweaks were still called for. A self-hosted WP account was created and tailored to specific criteria, giving the client an individualized look and function while still allowing for use of the familiar Web-based posting and upload library interfaces of WordPress. Custom alterations of other such software platforms are also possible. See site...


International Union of Nutritional Sciences.

Constellation Design built two private Websites for the IUNS for their needs in sharing information and data files over great distances using a central Web-based interface.


Marty Marsh Creative Enterprises.

Constellation has done several iterations of Websites for Marty’s marketing and consulting ventures, including Great Living Today, The Successful Soul Proprietor, and MartyMarsh.com. Marty and I have worked together on a number of things over the years and lately he’s been experimenting with doing his own web building using WordPress. I’m trying not to take it personally. :-).


The People Process.

Pam Hollister came to Constellaiton looking for someone to maintain her existing Website, ThePeopleProcess.com, and maybe do a little tweaking to it. She didn’t want a complete renovation, just some adjusting, which we were pleased to provide. Constellation has continued to maintain the site and asist Pam whenever she has need of technical help. See site...


AttractAGreatLife.com.

Sandy Guderyon holds self-improvement seminars and workshops in northern California and came to Constellaiton for a custom Website to promote her ventures. See site...


Seattle for Kerry.

In 2003, a volunteer arm of the John Kerry for President campaign enlisted Constellation to donate a Website for their group. The campaign is long over, but a dummy site remains for viewing. See site...


Wales Literary Agency.

Constellation Design was given firm parameters for this Website, that of the Wales Literary Agency in Seattle. Showcasing their various titles and authors and providing submission information for prospective clients, the site also houses a news blog for Agency announcements and promotion. Waleslit.com was built with my favorite CMS infrastructure (based on a program called Silverstripe) and customized to allow the client to do most maintenance and updates simply and easily.See site...
