“Designing websites to enhance the experience of your target audience.”

Lasher Works is geared to Dynamic Website Design and Development. Using content standards such as HTML5, presentation standards such as CSS3, combined with JavaScript and jQuery to enable Front-End or browser activated coding to put everything in motion and PHP to do some heavy lifting on the server side or Back-End to make a website truly interactive. Using these disciplines in the right measure, is a recipe to produce a website your audience will want to spend more time exploring. Because I am commited to designing websites to enhance the experience of your target audience, I will enhance your tired, static site by incorporating user interaction where possible. Let me bring your code up to 21st century standards and make it SEO friendly too. Contact me today.

As a web developer / designer I feel that I have an obligation to share my experience, code snippets & other resources that I have picked up along the way to help those who also enjoy making the World Wide Web a better place. By working together and sharing better coding practices we can look to a better user experience for all.

Feature Web Design

Mississaugas of the Credit

My latest website design features Mississaugas of the New Credit reserve. Being a member of this band, I can personally attest to the beauty of this thriving community. It’s a shame that all they have to offer is nowhere near reflected in their website. The website they have now was created using a free website builder on the weebly.com website, where you cut and paste content. I suppose it's better to have a presence on the web than not, where those who seek information have that resource but with what they have now makes finding anything a difficult chore. This became the basis of my design strategy; my aim was to convey their vison, as well as make navigation and information gathering more accessible.

My design addresses the problem of information that is "monotone" in feature, where in many places it's hard to distinguish where one section ends and another begins. When you visit my concept design, you’ll see where I’ve placed a link to their website page I used to create my concept design. You’ll be able to have a side by side comparison. A user—friendly website is one that is intuitively laid out and is easy to navigate for all devices and browsers. Today's website must be visually optimized. Unfortunately their website is not optimized so if you were to need information on-the-go and opened the webpage on your cellphone, it will display as if you were on a desktop computer and is almost illegible. I address this issue with what’s called, “Responsive Design”. Responsive web page design ensures your site looks great and works well on any device and browser.

CSS3 Animation

A little CSS3 goes a long way. You’ll be amazed how easy it is to animate almost any HTML element using only CSS3. No longer is it necessary to need complicated JavaScript or Flash! to animate objects on your website.
