I began making websites in 1994, but as HTML code became more complex, I gravitated more towards the specialty of Information Architecture, (IA), a discipline that creates the information topography of a website. The process begins by getting a handle on the number of pages that will be required for a site, and gathering the necessary “collateral” (pictures & text) that will fill the site. Working in close contact with designers, (“look & feel”) and coders, (who write the underlying HTML) I worked on many sites through the 1990s and 2000s in this capacity.
Using WordPress now, I can develop the site architecture, develop & gather the collateral, put the pages together and produce a full website. WordPress has distinct advantages in that many themes are responsive, allowing for a mobile site to be built alongside a laptop version. Click on the icons below to reach the completed sites.
The following website was created in 2004 using html and while it’s no longer online, it was a project I loved doing. It included capturing the poet’s spoken word using a Mini-Disc recorder and getting all the files to the web in a site that I still think has that old school look of the web. I still have the complete website and might get around to re-hosting it someday. Danny Solis is an incredible talent and a great human being.
