Nicholls State University Website: 2012

I continue to enjoy to progression of the Web as a platform for communication using multiple media. In this iteration of the website for Nicholls State University, the design is meant to be simpler and more visual in order to convey the sometimes complicated vision of the university. The site uses responsive techniques to make it more usable across smartphones and tablets, and the web technology under the hood is making a slow backwards compatible progression to HTML5 and CSS3.

There are a couple images of the site before I started working if you are interested in what I started with.

iAmerica

iAmerica was an Internet Service Provider located in Monroe, Louisiana in the late 1990’s. They part of LDS Communications and offered Internet, Hosting, and other data services to decent sized multiple state region.

I worked for iAmerica between 1995 and 1999. I could not write about iAmerica without giving that team of passionate hacker geeks credit for giving the best post-college education anyone could hope for. At iAmerica my eyes were opened to computing and communication technology. I learned to never stop learning and iAmerica became the foundation of my mostly Web based career.
