Design

We just launched my favorite project I’ve worked on so far, for obvious reasons for any of you that know me 🙂

This new site is http://www.passorcatch2008.com and it’s a showcase for two of Texas Tech’s top players: quarterback Graham Harrell and wide receiver Michael Crabtree. If we can keep winning and finish off a great season, both have a shot at the Heisman at the end of the year.

The site features a great design developed by our athletics department. They also shot some fun videos and gave us some nice photos to put up in the gallery.

My job was to take the design and mock it up in photoshop. I then did the html and css conversion. I also added the photo gallery using the jQuery-lightbox plugin.

I received the videos in .avi format so I converted them to .flv format and used the JW FLV Player to play them in flash.

The excellent content work and design was done by our web writer, Lisa Low.

It was a fun site and I’m very happy with the way it turned out. I hope Texas Tech fans everywhere enjoy it and spread the word.

GO TECH!

The fine folks at We Love WP and eduStyle have put Texas Tech Today in their galleries here and here.

We Love Wp focuses on displaying standout sites/designs that use the WordPress platform as their cms. The sites featured here give you a great indication of the power and flexibility that you get free with wp.

eduStyle showcases university-based web designs. They have quite a nice community of campus web masters and designers over there.

I’ve always wanted something I’ve designed to be in showcases like these. It’s really cool to have that happen.

I submitted it to some other CSS galleries, so we’ll see how that goes too.
