When I think back to my days in middle school, I realize how many friends I made that are still in my life years later. Today we’re going to talk about one of those friends. We went in different directions when it came time to go to college. After college, we also went in different directions. While I’m designing Web sites from offices in Arizona and Mexico, he is designing amazing outdoor spaces in California, Mexico and beyond.
Throughout his career, he worked his way up to a senior level position in a firm. I certainly suggested a few times that he consider starting his own firm. He did exactly that almost a year ago. Then the next step was putting together a Web site for the new firm and it has now launched.
We had a lot of discussions about what to include on the site and the best way to present it. One conversation I have with many clients is the importance of a site on a phone. That’s always a bit more challenging when the client is somewhat who never surfs the Web on their own phone. Yet as we worked on the site, Bill truly understood the importance and always made sure to look on his own phone.
As a landscape designer, it was important to show off his designs. This also led to a challenge since many projects take a long time to go from the design phase to completion. Thus there were a number of designs to show which were still in the build phase. In his overall portfolio, the projects are all shown.
There is also a separate portfolio for projects he designed at previous firms, including some very large resorts in the Caribbean and Mexico. Each of the individual projects from the portfolios also have a dedicated page where project details and photos can be shown.
I encourage you all to visit WilliamBrunsky.com to see all of Bill’s amazing work. If you need help designing an incredible outdoor space, talk to Bill about it! For those who are in need of a great Web site, get in touch with Unleashed and we’ll get to work!
Thank you Foster. As you know, this web site quickly evolved into more than I imagined. I came to realize how important a first impression would be and you made me realize the importance of designing my site so that it could be viewed on different devices. I didn’t know there were so many things to consider and I’m sure without your guidance, and of course technical expertise, I would have failed miserably. Your foresight into designing for easy maintenance and expansion of the site, and your help integrating with so many other social media platforms, helped me create something I’m very proud of. This will probably be THE most important tool I have in succeeding as a landscape architect. Thanks again for all you’ve done.
