After years of intending to put together a personal portfolio site, the time has finally come. Welcome to DillonBaird.io, your new stop to see a showcase of my recent work and writings. Fully built out using vanilla css/html with no javascript used in the frontend. Automatic Dark Mode based on users system settings. Compiled using Hugo and styled using Tailwind CSS.

As with every project of mine, I like to introduce a new challenge to achieve, and this was no exception. Creating a fully interactive UI using pure css is no easy feat; but after getting past some speed-bumps, I'm proud of the final result. Poke around in the source code for some fun easter eggs.

Objective

The goal of DillonBaird.io was to create a portfolio website to showcase my recent work and writings, including a portfolio, blog, and articles. The challenge I set for myself was to do this using only CSS/HTML with no Javascript used in the frontend.

Challenges

Working with Hugo as a new platform was one of the main challenges that had to be overcome when creating DillonBaird.io. This unfamiliarity made it difficult to understand how various features worked and how best to implement them into the site design. Additionally, creating an interactive UI without the use of any JavaScript posed an interesting challenge that needed careful consideration when designing and coding pages for the site.

Solution

To create this project I used Hugo as my static site generator along with Tailwind CSS as my styling framework which helped make working with HTML/CSS much easier than it would have been otherwise. In order to achieve an interactive UI without using any JavaScript code I implemented several techniques such as pseudo-elements and transitions that allowed me bring life into certain elements on the page without needing external scripting files or libraries like jQuery or ReactJS . An automatic dark mode feature based on user system settings was also included in order to give users more control over their browsing experience on DillonBaird.io.

Results

After resolving all of these issues, I am very proud of what has been achieved in terms of design while keeping everything within scope by not resorting back to JavaScript code which can easily become bloated if not managed properly throughout development processes . This project has proven hugely successful for me so far , having developed many skills along the way such as gaining knowledge about Hugo, Tailwind CSS, HTML5 & CSS3 – all while still being able after deliver something useful & visually appealing at its completion.

To tackle these challenges, I developed a robust backend database filled with carefully crafted messages curated by our team of experts. These pre-formulated texts catered to a wide array of conversational scenarios, providing users with fitting responses for their interactions. Additionally, I implemented a feature allowing the community to contribute their own suggestions and vote on the existing ones. This served to continuously enhance and update the pool of available messages.

Results

ThePerfextText app proved to be a valuable tool for its users, enhancing their text-based conversational skills. Users reported increased confidence in their ability to engage in text-based flirting or banter, appreciating the expert-crafted messages and the supportive community. The successful development of this app showcased my ability to combine user-centric design and a community-driven approach to create an effective conversational tool.

Type: Client Project
Year: 2013
Tech:  html Logo css3 Logo jquerymobile Logo

As UX Specialist, I lead the effort to simplify and enhance the user experience for the Holonis platform in preparation for beta launch at SXSW.

Holonis was a social commerce platform empowering you to be found online, make money, and be powered by data driven AI. Holonis allowed users to publish SEO optimized content, distribute to social media, sell both products/services, and manage their digital presence, all from one seamless simple platform. The platform combined the power of a website, social, ecommerce, and AI within a platform, giving all users the tools to be successful online for whatever or whomever they want to be.

Objective

My primary objective during my tenure at Holonis was to enhance and refine the user experience (UX) on the platform, ensuring it was user-friendly and intuitive. The platform, still in its early development stages, aspired to integrate a myriad of capabilities such as social media distribution, SEO optimization, e-commerce, and data-driven AI. The ultimate goal was to finesse the user interface and optimize the user journey in readiness for the beta launch at the acclaimed South by Southwest (SXSW) festival.

Challenges

Among the considerable challenges faced during this project was the inherent complexity of the platform, which integrated a vast array of features into a single interface. Ensuring simplicity and intuitive navigation amidst such intricate functionalities was indeed a daunting task. Further, the diverse user base of Holonis, ranging from businesses to individual users, brought to light a multitude of varying needs and requirements. Unearthing and comprehensively addressing these needs through rigorous user testing and feedback analysis was an uphill battle. Furthermore, being an early-stage codebase built using ASP.net, we encountered technology constraints which made it challenging to implement advanced UX/UI elements and custom widgets.

Solution

To navigate these challenges, we adopted a comprehensive strategy. Extensive user research was conducted to understand and meet the expectations of various user groups, which informed the personalization of user experience. Low and high-fidelity prototyping of the platform was carried out, followed by numerous iterations based on user feedback and usability testing. This cyclical process played a pivotal role in fine-tuning the user experience. Further, custom UI widgets such as media players and file managers were developed to amplify the platform's functionality and usability. To overcome the limitations of the ASP.net codebase, close collaboration with the development team was fostered, enabling the implementation of advanced UX/UI elements.

Results

The efforts bore fruit as reflected by the positive outcome of the project. The beta launch of the platform at SXSW was a resounding success, receiving commendable feedback on its user experience and usability. Users particularly praised the intuitive interface and the seamless integration of varied functions. Post-launch, the platform experienced a surge in user engagement and retention, attributable to the user-friendly interface and the tailored user experience. Notably, this also led to reduced churn rates and higher user satisfaction. The inclusion of custom UI widgets and advanced UX/UI elements elevated the platform's functionality, distinguishing Holonis in the competitive market. The successful amalgamation of social media distribution, SEO optimization, e-commerce, and data-driven AI on a single platform was a significant achievement. This experience with Holonis reaffirmed the value of user-centered design in creating products that are not only functional but also user-friendly and enjoyable.

Objective

The primary objective of this project was to create an aesthetically pleasing website for ReadylinkHealthcare that would be both functional and visually appealing.

Early in my development career, I created a static HTML/CSS website for a small local computer repair shop in Rancho Mirage. The goal was to establish an online presence that effectively communicated the shop's services and values to its local clientele. Despite being a novice in web development, I succeeded in designing an informative, user-friendly, and visually appealing website. The website significantly increased customer inquiries and foot traffic to the shop, serving as a testament to my ability to deliver effective solutions and adapt to diverse client needs. This project was a pivotal step in my career, helping to refine my technical skills and deepen my understanding of client-centric web development.

Objective

At the early stages of my development career, I was tasked with creating a static HTML/CSS website for a small local computer repair shop based in Rancho Mirage. The primary objective was to establish an online presence for the business and provide essential information to potential customers. Given the small scale of the business and its focus on local clientele, the emphasis was on simplicity, information clarity, and ease of navigation, rather than advanced functionalities.

Challenges

Building a website for a small local business presented unique challenges. Firstly, the project required a clear understanding of the client's needs and the local context. The design and content needed to resonate with the local clientele and communicate the shop's values and services effectively. Secondly, as the website was one of the earliest projects in my development career, it was necessary to navigate through the technical aspects of HTML/CSS with a still-evolving skill set. Creating an aesthetically pleasing and user-friendly site with limited experience was indeed a challenging proposition.

Solution

The solution to these challenges was rooted in careful planning and iterative development. I conducted an in-depth consultation with the client to fully understand their expectations and the needs of their customers. The site design was kept clean and simple, prioritizing user navigation and clarity of information. The website was built using static HTML/CSS, providing a stable, fast, and easily maintainable solution suitable for a small business. Throughout the project, I continually refined my skills and applied best practices for HTML/CSS, enhancing both my competence and the quality of the website.

Results

The project culminated in the successful launch of a user-friendly, informative, and visually appealing website. The site served as an effective online presence for the computer repair shop, providing customers with easy access to information about the business's services, location, and contact details. The business reported an increase in inquiries and foot traffic after the website launch, demonstrating the site's value in attracting and informing customers. This project marked a significant step in my development career, highlighting my ability to deliver effective solutions, navigate technical challenges, and adapt to the unique needs of different clients.

Props Productions Catalog

Year: 2008
Tech:  illustrator Logo photoshop Logo

In 2008, while working at Props Productions, I undertook a project to design and distribute a comprehensive product/service catalog. The catalog was aimed at providing a detailed guide of our offerings for potential clients, and was complemented with a DVD, which presented our services in a more engaging format. The project also involved coordinating with a print shop for the production of the catalog and setting up an automated mailing process to distribute it across hundreds of schools in Southern California.

Despite the complexity, the catalog was successfully designed and distributed, leading to an increase in bookings for the 2008-2009 season and showcasing my ability to manage multifaceted projects requiring a blend of creativity, technical knowledge, and logistical skills.

Objective

In 2008, during my tenure at Props Productions, a company specializing in DJ, lighting, A/V, and entertainment services, I was tasked with creating a product/service catalog for the 2008-2009 season. The key objective was to provide a comprehensive guide for potential clients, detailing all the packages, equipment for rental, and service rates. This catalog was to be complemented by a DVD, housed in a sleeve on the inside cover, providing visual aids and further information about our offerings. A crucial aspect of this project was not only the creation of an appealing and informative catalog but also the logistical coordination of printing and automating the mailing process to hundreds of schools across Southern California.

Challenges

The challenges of this project lay in both the creative and logistical domains. On the creative side, designing a catalog that was both attractive and informative, capable of effectively showcasing the range and quality of our services, was a complex task. Equally challenging was the need to seamlessly incorporate a DVD into the catalog's design.

On the logistical side, the task of coordinating with a print shop to produce high-quality catalogs was a crucial step. Furthermore, setting up an automated mailing process to distribute the catalog across hundreds of schools in Southern California added an additional layer of complexity, requiring careful planning and execution.

Solution

To overcome these challenges, a two-pronged approach was adopted. Firstly, a great deal of attention was given to the design phase. The catalog was created in a way that it was not just visually appealing, but also user-friendly, enabling clients to easily find the information they needed. The inclusion of a DVD provided potential clients with an engaging, multimedia overview of our offerings.

Simultaneously, I established a relationship with a reliable print shop, ensuring that the quality of the catalog aligned with our standards. Once the catalogs were printed, an automated mailing process was set up. This involved careful planning to accurately target the schools in our list and ensure the timely delivery of the catalogs.

Results

The results of this project were extremely rewarding. The catalog was well-received by the schools, resulting in a surge of inquiries and a significant increase in bookings for the 2008-2009 season. The accompanying DVD provided an interactive platform to showcase our services, giving us an edge over competitors.

In addition, the automated mailing process proved to be highly efficient, ensuring that the catalogs reached their intended recipients promptly and accurately. This project showcased my ability to handle complex tasks that required a blend of creativity, technical knowledge, and logistical acumen. Overall, the project was a success, contributing substantially to Props Productions' visibility and client engagement for that season.
