CIGS | ERP Software | WordPress

https://cigs.com.br/
I managed the whole project and built the WordPress theme from scratch. I kept a focus on a good responsive and accessible experience, as well as making it as performant as I could. It also has a Vue.js-powered purchase form integrated with the client's contract generation database via an Ajax API.

Dental Aligner | Dentistry Products

I led the art direction and created the whole single-page template, focusing on a solid responsive and accessible experience. The template was then handed to W2O to build the CMS on.

LX Contabilidade | Accountancy Office

This is a WordPress single-page website with a theme built from scratch. I art directed it and programmed the whole theme.

The website also animates when scrolling and features a jQuery-based monthly fee calculator.

Costa | Accountancy Office

I led the art direction for the project and built the whole HTML and CSS from scratch which was then handed to W2O to build the CMS on.

Bier Barcelos | Law Office

https://strongway.com.br/pt-br/portfolio/site-bier-barcelos-advogados
I led the art direction and developed some of the HTML and all the CSS and JavaScript template from scratch for this single-page website

Kronos Games | Board Game Store

https://strongway.com.br/portfolio/loja-virtual-kronos-games
I managed, and art directed the whole project and built the HTML and CSS of the main pages atop of the Tray Commerce platform. Since the project was based on this platform, some aspects of the code could not be changed, but the overall results shine amongst other projects done atop of this platform.

Tresano | Clothing Store

I managed and art directed the whole project as well a building the HTML and CSS of the main pages atop of the Tray Commerce platform. Since this was based on this platform, some aspects of the code could not be changed, but the overall results shine amongst other projects done atop of this platform.

The website has two small Vue.js components that were used to build the cart dropdown and a bar that progresses as the user gets closer to getting free shipping.

The company also has a WordPress blog that was built by me.

Website Adjustments for Inclusive Leaders Group

https://inclusiveleadersgroup.com/
My work focused on adjusting several page layouts using Elementor. The website was already built using Elementor but lacked some layout consistency; it also needed content updates. I collaborated closely with the company leadership throughout the project.
