Labor of love

I'd like to take a moment to announce the website redesign of my girlfriend Julie's pet care business, Park Place Bark. While I still have a lot to learn about web design and development, I progressed leaps and bounds while working on this site. The original site was thrown up in a matter of days. Built with tables, cumbersome images, and shoddy code, it was in need of a revamp.


With the help of css, Park Place Bark now has one of the most sophisticated websites in the Chicagoland pet care industry—an industry that is riddled with mediocre websites. Big snaps to Julie for her excellent art direction. I don't just say this out of obligation to my girlfriend. She really did provide an abundance of strategic and creative direction and the end product wouldn't have been nearly as successful without her expertise.

The new site features rotating pet quotes and tips, a service area map, a client gallery, an "anatomy" component, and a highly informative blog.

Yes, updates to the blog have been a long time coming. I actually blame my slackness in large part on Julie's new website. It became all-consuming for the two of us.

It was great seeing you. Let's do brunch soon.
