Dore & Geoff Baker – Website


Responsive UI Design Principles allows optimal across various devices

Project: Responsive UI Re-Design of – The Marketing Website for Aviara Real Estate Founding Partners, Dore & Geoff Baker.

Project Scope:

I have been providing for the web design and hosting needs of Dore and Geoff Baker since 1997. As their “Web Guy”, they came back to me with a request to re-design their current web-site which was last re-built in 2007. They needed a site that worked across multiple devices and automatically self blog so that they would be free to concentrate on their business. The project began in May 2014 and went live on May 28th.

What I Delivered:

Utilizing HTML5, CSS3 and LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP), I have successfully given Dore & Geoff a website based on Responsive Web Design (RWD) which has a device-independent UI (user interface) design philosophy, and delivers an optimized website experience on devices with different widths and different resolutions: PC, notebook, tablet, smart phone, etc. Utilizing LAMP I have also created the site to auto-import blog posts from various newsfeeds. The site uses SEO best practices, and the HTML is written with the sites good ranking on search engines in mind. The site has good use of h1,h2,h3 tags. The primary contents are above the secondary contents in markup, and there is very good internal site linking.

The completed web-site is available at
