Web Development Portfolio
This page is linked to some of the webpages I've developed for clients. I would be happy to hear your opinion on them.
|Inroads, the Canadian Journal of Opinion
Described as "Canada’s best source for informed, lively commentary and analysis on the issues facing the country — and the world," Inroads has been publishing since 1992 and online since 2002. In 2008, with the assistance of Canada Magazine Fund grant, I was hired to redesign their site. Yes, that is a Philip Street cartoon on the cover.
In the way of the Internet, the site was redesigned in 2012. In time, I may post a few samples of my design. Meantime, have a look at their new site.
|Across Boundaries Multifaith Institute
Across Boundaries Multifaith Institute is a new Canadian educational organization providing a venue in which people from diverse traditions and beliefs can begin to communicate with one another, in a context of growing mutual understanding and sympathy.
Philip is a cartoonist, animator and illustrator, and creator of the strip Fisher. This website displays some of his work, and is home for the Fisher archive.

Their new website is here. Be careful if you're using I.E. 6

I redesigned the site layout and maintained/updated the site. (I cannot take credit for the graphics.)
These are the final posted pages for the site, and since the conference is over, the e-mail links are no longer operative.
|Compass, A Jesuit Journal
This award-winning magazine suspended publication in 1997, and while we are still hoping for its resurrection, there seems to be enough content here to continue to attract visitors.
The non-profit organization set up to pursue the aims of Compass, A Jesuit Journal, this page links to information about Compass Points: Navigating the 20th Century, a collection of new and previously published articles about... the 20th century!
A proto-site, begun as a 50th birthday gift for a noted journalist, from his friends. With friends like these...
