The sites I've worked on fall into a few groupings, and they each represents a different way I can work with you, depending on your particular needs and preferences.

Sites From Scratch - Often an individual will come to me with nothing but a business that needs a web site. Carlos Garcia desired a site to showcase his commercial portfolio that matched his corporate identity materials, but which would have a design that stood out in the big photo crowd (and also offered a nice contrast for his personal work). Alan E. Cohen needed an online catalog for his stamp business that he could update by himself each month. And Stacey Shulman wanted a site to display her pottery (for which I also did the photography).

Sites From Your Layout - At the other end of the spectrum, I also work with designers who provide me with a PDF or Photoshop file that details the layout they want converted to the web. I've worked with Pat Jenkins in this manner, on her site and online portfolio, and on several sites for her clients: Hall Center, The Moorings Group, Talking Rock Ventures, Emtech Bio, and Venture Lab. In each case, great pains were taken to make sure the sites nearly exactly matched the detailed design that was approved by the client, and then provided to me.

Co-Designed Sites - In others cases, the client has the idea and most of the parts, but needs it all sewn together. Or needs an old site redesigned. Vanessa Lowry had the idea and graphics for Profits in Progress, and I helped her by completing the design and tying it into an existing “pre-fab” e-commerce store. Anisa International had a long established site that needed a new look. And later, I worked with them to build a sister site, adesign, to sell their line of makeup brushes. Adam Meyerson also had a long established site, 123driving.com, but wanted new templates to update it from a tables based layout to standards compliant XHTML and CSS.

Personal Sites - Having been on the web since early 1996, of course, I have a pretty dense site of my own. In addition to the weblog format found on the home page of my personal site, you'll find PhotoDude Labs, an online store selling archival prints via PayPal. I also have fun building personal sites like PrincessCaroli.com, for my niece. In addition to being places for creative expression, these are my test-beds, and have allowed me to become familiar with different technologies and programs, like Movable Type and Textpattern.

So as you can see, since my experiences cover a broad range of client needs, I can “fit in” to your project in whatever way you want.
