web design, Wichita KS - Trinity Academy

Website design: Trinity Academy

I first began working with Trinity Academy in 2007, when we built a new, custom website from the ground up, including site structure and information architecture.

Then, they came back to me in 2013 and said, “The site structure still works, but we need to update the look.” And I agreed. (Things change so fast on the web, most websites need a design refresh every few/several years.)

Over the course of the next several months, we built them a new WordPress-based website, designed with future expansions in mind. And those were recently installed: Trinity Academy — formerly just a high school — opened a K-8 school this year, so a whole new section was added for that; an in-site online shop was also added, allowing them to sell fundraising auction items now, and school gear in the future. Oh, and we also added online giving, using Give. Which is a great little app that lets you collect online donations without taking a cut!*

*You will still need to pay PalPay or your merchant account, of course.

Web design: Premier Fitness



Premier Fitness is a personal training center in Wichita. I was especially excited to design this website for them because I’m a happy client of theirs!

Check out the Premier Fitness website. And seriously: if you need to get in shape, lose some weight, or just improve your fitness, and you live in the Wichita area, contact them!

New website: Lighthouse Music Services

A website I designed went live this week: Lighthouse Music Services. The design included a freshening of the existing logo, as well as a reorganization of the site map, making it more user friendly.

At the end, my client emailed me and said, “I’m entirely happy… Enjoyed the process!” That’s what I like to hear!

New website: HopeNet

HopeNet home page

Last week, we went live with a completely redesigned, restructured, rewritten site for local nonprofit HopeNet. The new site provides them with improved flexibility for promoting various events and programs, and the responsive design means that it looks as good on a smartphone or notepad as it does on a large monitor.

Hope Community Church website


New website for my home church — Hope Community Church in Andover, KS — just launching today!

It’s based on the Oxygen template, which took a bit of trial-and-error to get up to speed on using featured images, but once I figured that out, everything else was easy. Very flexible template, and I would definitely use it again.

The home page features a “slider” (aka, slide show), which works great for featuring recent blog posts, special events, etc.

Visit the site.

Blackbear Bosin Legacy Project website

Bosin website home

Just launched another new website — the second this week! The Blackbear Bosin Legacy Project just announced the publication of their first project, a book titled Blackbear Bosin: Keeper of the Indian Spirit. This website provides info about the book, online ordering, and a timeline of the artist’s life and career.
