The Regional Parks Botanic Garden is a 10 acre living museum of California native plants located in Tilden Park in the hills to the east of Berkeley.

We worked with the delightful friends of the garden to build an online home for their wealth of information about native plants, including galleries of the plants in bloom by month, a lovely interactive map of the garden, front-page events announcement boxes that are updated by the client, and a private area for docents to log in to see schedules and other private information.

The site uses gentle, natural colors and a broad, page-filling layout to showcase the spectacular photographs provided by the client.

We also built mobile versions of this site, so it looks great on phones and tablets.

Helios Art Glass specializes in the restoration of stained and leaded glass windows while also creating works of glass art.

ALS Research Forum is the website of an organization that compiles thousands of scientific articles on research related to ALS and other degenerative nerve conditions. The purpose of this is to give researchers access to the very latest information relevant to their research goals and methods, so an important aspect of this site was to organize the information cleanly and logically while also providing sophisticated organic and faceted search tools.

We began this project by writing a customized "spider" to download and index thousands of articles with images and internal and external links from the existing site, which was built on a proprietary platform in such a way that the internal links would be functional on our new WordPress platform. We then wrote systems allowing the client to create flexible taxonomies so that articles as well as job opportunities, meeting announcements and drugs in development would appear on the proper pages with the desired formatting and tagging.

We also created mobile versions of this very complex site so it can easily be viewed and used on phones and tablets.

Margo Rivera Weiss is an artist whose vibrant and visually stunning work speaks for itself.

We worked with the artist to weave her work together into a website/collage that is a pleasure to browse through.

We wanted to enable the artist to update her galleries by uploading new images. This posed a challenge because the dimensions of the artworks vary so much, ranging from tall and thin to short and wide. In order to balance the visual impact of each work on a page, we wrote javascript to adjust the images sizes dynamically so the areas of all images on a page are consistent.

Our website for Sonoma Naturpathic Medicine utilizes the warm and earthy color palette of their former html site. We reorganized their content and menu system to make every informative page easy to find, and showed our delightful clients how to upload and edit their own content. The result is rich with color and information.

Our mobile version of this site makes it easy to read and navigate on phones and tablets.

The spare logo and clean color scheme of the site were created by Jason Wizelman of Nice Design.

The WordPress website of renowned textile expert Susan Meller was a joy and a challenge to build. We worked together to build a simple and clean site to frame her stunning books, Central Asian textiles, and archival images. The site contains hundreds of images - pages from her three books, photographs of the Central Asian textiles, fabrics, and notecards that she is offering for sale, and watermarked copies of photos from her collection of archival images. Each book, gallery, product category and product page is generated from hand-coded custom plugins that display the images in a clear and appealing way, while allowing the client to add and edit images and text.

The wonderful visuals combined with the client's wealth of knowledge about plant health makes a site that is a treat for the eyes as well as the mind.

"Wicked Clever Designs are computer geniuses. If the computer programs they need are not available for what I have asked them to do they just write them themselves... instantly. My websites have a lot of moving parts but Wicked Clever Designs never uses flash so that they can be seen on hand held devices.

Unlike most other designers I have worked with, they have no egos. I tell them how I want something and they do it without telling me that they don't agree with my colors or composition. On the other hand, they have a great design sense so if you need help with design they are really good at that. At this point I just tell them something general and trust that their decisions will be great. It's one less thing to worry about.

Finally, if you happen to be having a nervous breakdown because your computer decided to not connect to the internet no matter what you try, you can call them and they will walk you through a way to solve the problem without shaming you at all."

This website includes a fully integrated Wordpress blog as well as e-commerce using the open-source solution Zencart. The site is constructed from numerous photographs of the artist's freehand drawings and collages creating layers of color and texture that reflect and emphasize the artist's work. Javascript animations including a rising balloon, a flapping butterfly and a "A Card is Born" animation add additional touches of whimsy. This artistically creative website was indeed a pleasure to build!

"Saill is an insanely obsessed coder. She built this site during four all-nighters over two weekends, because once she had the idea she couldn't quit until it was done. Very admirable. I suppose, but really I think she needs to get a little more sleep."
-- Saill White, Lorem Quipsum

This site is clean and playful, and lots of fun for the user. Its back-end is a database of over 36,000 literary quotes (and counting), harvested from the internet by back-end code, and stored in the WordPress database. The front-end code displays quotes from a random pair of authors every time the page is refreshed. The user can choose between "prose" and "poetry" and can colorize the quotes to see them matched up with their authors.

"Saill White gave me a personal "brochure" site with many easy to navigate levels and a lot of content. I love the clean look. We worked together to develop imagery that reflects who I am. I love that I can edit content myself, and that when I need a bigger change (such as adding a new page picture), Saill can do that speedily. She is wonderful to work with on all levels. Superior quality work, flexibility… and the whole process felt creative and very fun. "

This is a personal and professional website for a creative client who wears many hats - author, teacher, and performer. We divided the navigation into three distinct areas, to reflect these three passions. This site was mainly built on a very lightweight content management system that the author can use to log in and update the content. It also includes a Wordpress blog that is seamlessly integrated into the navigation system.

This WordPress website for the wonderful, inclusive, experimental, performance group and dance theater company Dandelion Dancetheater is a simple, somewhat raw container for the client's wealth of wonderful content.

We kept it simple so the wonderful photos could shine through. A truly fun project!

-- WCRC

Womens Cancer Resource Center is an amazing non-profit organization that provides a multitude of services and support to women with cancer, while also providing health-oriented wellness workshops and classes to the community at large.

We identified a number of independent audiences for WCRC's website, each of which need to be able to find specific information. Whether a visitor is interested in donating resources, volunteering, taking classes or obtaining services, we organized the site so the relevant information could be quickly obtained.

This site required quite a bit of custom coding. It includes a registration system that allows the client to download an excel file sorted by class, rather than participant. There is also a highly customized calendar system to display upcoming workshops with "pop-up" registration forms and "more information" boxes. Finally, we created an e-commerce system allowing visitors to sign up for and pay for Continueing Education Unit Courses, with specialized email responses including links to video and exam pages for online education.

"Wicked Clever, indeed. I wanted my book site to entice readers not only to read my novel, but to become invested in the whole world/experience the novel offers. Plus, I needed to be able to sell books/merchandise – and I am not a bookseller or merchant. Saill was amazing to work with. I sent her some images (the book jacket, author photo, and a few snaps from my iPhone), a few pages of text, and she quickly and elegantly gave me a site that I love and that represents my novel wonderfully."
-- Ericka Lutz, The Edge of Maybe

This simple, cleanly designed website was built around a lovely book jacket image and the author's own elegant words and photographs. We used javascript animation to subtly expose an underlying theme from the novel.
