professional websites

the following portfolio showcases websites that i built through my full-time jobs over the years.  these stood out as some of my favorites.

i do not own the files or any accounts affiliated with these websites.

whoisbarrysonnenfeld.com

author landing page

my job published a highly entertaining memoir with/for film director/cinematographer barry sonnenfeld, and i was graced with creating the landing page for it.  while it’s only a one page, enhanced landing page, i am honored as a fan to be the one who created it.

barry wanted it to look like an old (vintage) resume, so we were going to create key areas with hand-drawn aspects and also add a video content area.  for now, this is the placeholder page.  i tried to keep it clean and minimal, sort of like it was laid out like a resume (even adding a paper texture to the background), but still reflecting the book cover shapes and colors for cohesive purposes.  once content fills up, it will reflect the “resume” look a bit more.

"catch and kill" landing page

author landing page

upon releasing his bestselling new book, i was asked to create a landing page for ronan farrow with select press and event information covering “Catch and Kill” for marketing purposes.  we kept it as clean and simple as possible, and kept it cohesive with the LB imprint UI.

while i admittedly agree this isn’t visually amazing, i was honored to have any small part in it.

todd parr (via hachette book group)

author website

(2019) todd parr is a brilliant, funny and caring children’s author.  i was paired with todd early on as a content manager for his existing website, and then we moved him over to a wordpress website via our CMS at work.

i have been dealing with todd directly through the Little, Brown Young Readers imprint at work, and I couldn’t be more pleased as an intro to working with authors.  i can’t say enough about this kind author.

when i was first given todd’s property to work on, it very much SCREAMED me.  i am a very colorful person, just as todd is.  i knew working on his website was going to be fun, and i wanted to ensure that we kept that playful vibe when coming over to our CMS.  i made sure that there were bits and pieces of over-the-top flare (his various headers on internal pages as well as a featured carousel slideshow on the homepage, featuring custom backgrounds) and we also ended up creating a custom video player module we will most likely end up using for our global site.  i ended up rearranging the page flow a bit, and we minimized and reorganized content so that users could easily find what they were looking for.

malcolm gladwell (via hachette book group)

author website

(2019) not only is Malcolm Gladwell a New York Times bestselling author, but he is also included in the TIME 100 Most Influential People list.  to have this on my roster here is humbling and i feel extremely fortunate to have had the opportunity to build this website.  this website was assigned to me at work through Hachette Book Group and the Little, Brown and Company imprint.

i kept the design as clean and minimal as possible, aside from the pops of blue/green from the cover of “talking to strangers” and the talk bubble backgrounds.

client testimonial:

“It is not often that I take the time to write a review about someone, that is, unless I find that they did an outstanding job for me. Jessica definitely belongs in that category. She recently designed the website for my interior design business. I am a tech novice, and found the mere idea of creating a website very daunting and intimidating. Jessica guided me through each step of the process with unlimited patience and skill. She helped me decide on the overall layout and structure, writing fonts, as well as colors and other design elements. She spent countless hours going through every minute detail with me, as well as teaching me how to edit the site independently for the future.

She was an absolute pleasure to work with, and I must say that I really looked forward to our editing sessions together, despite my poor computer skills. The results speak for themselves. I consider my website to be one of the nicest interior designer websites that I have seen – I had spent extensive time researching others in order to see the competition. It looks very professional, and is easy to navigate and very pleasing to the eye. I have received numerous compliments and would highly recommend Jessica’s services to anyone.” – claudia grunberger

cancun wood flooring (via edit.com)

flooring company portfolio

while not the most aesthetically enticing item in my portfolio, we improved this website that was built on yahoo site builder, which was AWFUL, slow and annoying to get into for maintenance.  every section and piece of content on the website had to be converted and i rebuilt the entire site. i brought everything over into a static website, so that the client would be able to edit everything via our company’s custom website editor.

the website has since switched over from our static website, so work is no longer in use. the URL reflects an archived version online.
