WHY Choose CT Hart?

CT is a designer with an unusual depth and breadth of experience, a juxtiposition of extremes. His background includes management of both people and projects, running his own business as well as being a solid team player, and he has worked in the corporate world, with small business, and non-profits. Not too shocking, since he grew up in the shadows of a computer-scientist and an accomplished fine artist (he understands more about both computers and art than most).

I cut my "design teeth" on Corel products in the early 90s, then switched over to using primarily tools in the Adobe Creative Suite by the turn of the millennium. The tools I use most are InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop, and Acrobat.
I have worked exstensively with FrameMaker, Pagemaker, Publisher, Quark, and of course - InDesign...
I love a collaborative environment and enjoy a diverse team. I'm some kind of an extrovered introvert, working well on my own or in a group. My sense of humor and affable attitude make me very easy to work with.
My experience includes budgeting, and I grasp the importance of being on time - whether that's for a day of work, or hitting the deadline....
I was introduced to the internet very early, I have been traveling the information super highway since it was little more than a dirt road...

Web Design Efforts of CT Hart

I've been at this a long time. Unfortunately, that means most of what I've built has come and gone...


RESPONSIVE DESIGN

You're currently in the best example of this that I've built....so far.

Responsive Design is an approach to web design aimed at crafting sites to provide an optimal viewing and interaction experience—easy reading and navigation with a minimum of resizing, panning, and scrolling—across a wide range of devices (from desktop computer monitors to mobile phones). There is more than one way to attempt this, and browsers react to each technique differently.

FRAMES

The site I helped put together for Corral West was a great example of the use of frames, unfortunately the Corral West bankruptcy and termination of business has eliminated this site and this link. Yet I include it here because the most impressive aspect of this site was never what you could readily see anyway. It was built to integrate with an existing fullfillment system that created the product display dynamically. If the product was in the database, and therefore showing on the page, it was also in the warehouse ready to ship. (With no legacy fullfillment system it's something I do not have the ability to recreate on this server.) However, thanks to the magic of the WAYBACK MACHINE we can still get a sense of what it looked like HERE.

Image Maps

The entry page to the old version of my site has a good example of how an image map works. See it HERE.

With HTML and XHTML, an image map is a list of coordinates relating to a specific image, created in order to hyperlink areas of the image to different destinations (as opposed to a normal image link, in which the entire area of the image links to a single destination). For example, a map of the world may have each country hyperlinked to further information about that country. The intention of an image map is to provide an easy way of linking various parts of an image without dividing the image into separate image files.

PARALLAX EFFECTS

Soemthing that's been around for years in classic video games, but it has become a trend in the web design world. This interesting effect is now commonly seen as part of the scrolling feature of a web page. It uses multiple backgrounds which seem to move at different speeds to create a sensation of depth (creating a faux-3D effect) and an more interesting browsing experience. It's something I am still experimenting with to determine some of the best ways this can be used to enhance the user's experience of a website.
