Web & Graphic Design
- » Web & Graphic Design
It should be pretty obvious on this website that I'm a freelance graphic artist and I design web sites for a living. This entire site, graphics, flash, rss feeds, php scripts, and MySQL databases were built by myself from scratch. I'm the former Webmaster of the Pocono Record, which handles several publications online. It was fun & challenging... I got to play with Quark, inDesign, the latest software, and three computers at once.
I've since moved on to work for an advertising agency, worked strategies with clients (from concept, to colors, to Search Engine Optimization.). Now I am located in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, and I'm ALWAYS freelancing.
To date, I've made hundreds of websites and home pages since I hit the web in 1997. From E-Commerce to Election websites (including my State Representative... who won in a landslide that year.)
For references, I have a few pages for you to check out. Feel free to visit and navigate with the "Related Links" menu on the right...

Ad for Fine Living Lancaster
This was a half page ad that ran in Fine Living Lancaster
around July 2015. It was a joint collaboration between myself and my son, John Brooks. It was made with Photoshop and then converted to .PDF for submission.
EBCom/Randi Holiday Card
In November, I made a Christmas card to send to business associates, and web pals featuring my favorite fiery spokesmodel, Randi Athenas. I posted several samples on Facebook and let the majority decide which one will be used. Surprisingly, they went with this very conservative version in Rockefeller Center.
The Whistlestop Cafe
A fully responsive web design, submissions to Google Places, Yelp, optimized. The site features a menu, blog, clickable addresses and phone numbers.
Cybergirl - Poetic Pinup Review
Cybergirl was once the AI bot that greeted visitors and new members in the forums and chatroom of my Problem Adults site. In May of 2013 Harlean Carpenter's Poetic Pinup Review Magazine decided to feature digital pinup girls, and I was honored to be asked to recreate her for their cover.
Randi Athenas - Poetic Pinup Review
I also had Randi dolled up as everyone's favorite redhead, Jessica Rabbit for the May 2013 issue of Poetic Pinup Review. Several photos were used in the magazine, and they can all be seen on my official Facebook page album.
Clark Commercial and Corporate Cleaning Services
This website had a live Twitter and Facebook feed as well as a comprehensive list of services and client referrals. It also had a mobile version.
Clark's Total Care PC Repair
A husband and wife team that were laptop specialists in Morgantown, PA. Before Responsive Web Design became a thing, you had to design a separate mobile version of sites, this was my first time doing that. It also had Twitter and Facebook feeds, as well as the latest tech news.
Re-Mix Nightlife Club Flyers
I did some work with a client I met through Twitter, making flyers for his club awards event. I made two samples. One in gold, and the other in purple, highlighting the nightlife in St. Louis, featuring their iconic arch.
Owned by Sheltie
A site dedicated to the Shetland Sheepdog, also known as Shelties. Photo gallery w/ Comment sections, blog, quotes, and lots of information.
Our Earth Angels
A memorial site to remember those who have left us. It featured a photo gallery, memorial section and random inspirational quotes throughout the site.
Linda MacIver's personal site. It contained three years of her MySpace blogs and a photo album styled just like MySpace, except I had the "fancy rich text editor" before they got around to implementing it.
The history and genealogy of the MacIver family, originating from the isle of Lewis. Inspirational quotes, guestbook and blog.
