Visual Thinking Inc. (Main Website)

Not many in manufacturing, logistics, and industry understand the Visual Workplace, but this project helps one owner to change that.

Dr. Gwendolyn Galsworth has spent the last 30 years pioneering concepts and methods used in transforming companies through Visual Workplace and Visual Management strategies.

The project is deployed and content is still being developed by the company.  This small-scale enterprise ecosystem started as a static project and is being converted behind-the-scenes to a dynamic offering using PHP/MySQL.

Providing a starting point for conversion to a Visual Workplace.

This very large project actually began in the Fall of 2016 while I was still a full-time, in-house developer for the company.  Since then, it's undergone numerous changes and iterations requested by management, and the site has since departed in early 2018 from my original recommendation of creating a visually appealing, educationally-based user experience with an integrated sales funnel.  This was an important array of concepts, due to the very narrow market niche and lack of client education on this topic, and I still remain deeply concerned about the removal and absence of these essential elements.  I no longer provide any design planning services to this company and merely update, maintain, and construct content, as requested.  The site is a PHP-based industrial site that includes a responsive slider area, responsive video, Sass for easy updates, an integration of PHPMailer and uses JavaScript for form validation.  The framework uses Bootstrap 3 due to the need for backwards compatibility with industrial clients and their IT infrastructures.  The site is integrated with a custom e-commerce solution and future plans include a revamped blogging and podcasting platform installed as subdomains.

Keys to Project Success

Proof-of-Concept

Having an educationally-focused, positive user experience that leads visitors to a sales funnel is essential, but the current design now lacks those original elements.

SEO Optimized

To ensure maximum advertising potential and be found online against competitors, the site was optimized to strict semantic standards for marketing.

Integrations

Lead generation, mail list signups, and e-learning platform integrations were necessary to implement as part of this company's business model.

Done right the first time

I take the time to listen to your needs, brainstorm right along with you, and propose realistic plans of action for your project. I'm a stickler for details, and while I enjoy the work I do, I also take it quite seriously. As a professional, I don't cut corners with your project.

Realistic project timelines

As a freelance web developer, I can modify my schedule to accommodate most needs, whether it's moving steadily, slowly, or broken into phases. I'll provide you with realistic expectations based on your project needs and my availability as a free agent.

Personal project investment

I don't believe in slamming out cheap templates or using stock settings on anything. It's not only your business image, but it's my reputation as a developer. I'm excited to help you where I can, and your success is high on my priority list.

Small-business affordable

I'm a professional that charges a fair market rate or packaged project price for my services. While I require a retainer to get started, I can invoice as we go for maximum flexibility. I can also set realistic expectations for your existing budget.
