The Pyramids of Gizeh: I was
approached by a gentleman that had moved here and had a new theory
on the purpose of pyramids and particularly, the Pyramid of Giza.
George specified only that he wanted his text and drawings up on
the Internet as soon as possible since he's writing a book. His
only other specification was that four particular lines of text
be put at the top of the first page of the site. I chose to do this
part in Flash, since I wanted those lines moving in order to catch
the eye. The header image took a great deal of time but I wanted
it to reflect some of his ideas regarding the purpose of the pyramids
and wanted to incorporate a logo that he drew. George expressed
a preference for red and black so I stuck to those colors as much
as possible. Right now, as per his wishes, the body text is double
spaced but I hope to change that in the future, and images have
yet to be added.
is a very simple site. For work up to this point, I charged $150
USD which included the extensive header photo development.
Update: The initial site was
a one page site with one image besides the header. However, the
client kept sending more information and images as time went by
and I charged an hourly rate for installing them. The client wished
to have this site removed from the Internet and allowed his hosting
to lapse as he decided to write a book. So I have moved it to this
portfolio in order to showcase it.
