I developed a Drupal project with an image, video gallery, and contact form. I created the theme from a PSD file and built a custom theme solution in Drupal (nonresponsive). The site provided an online presence so that clients could contact the company and a place where they could showcase the portfolio.
I built a Drupal site with Drupal Commerce with pixel-perfect design implementation and a custom Drupal theme.

Artiplaq mounts prints. The process is that a customer gives their prints, chooses the mount types, and Artiplaq delivers the mounted prints at home.

Products are dynamically created as there is no pre-existing product. The picture that you upload on the site to be mounted is a product and the mounting types are product attributes. The price is also calculated automatically based on the height/width you want to set for the frame.

Personal Blog
This is a static site built with Gatsby deployed on Netlify. The blog site reads the Markdown files and presents the content. I used multiple Gatsby plugins to make it presentable. The site also allows you to read PDF files and can toggle between light and dark modes.
