Custom Website Design
1. Calvin Alexander Ramsey Sr.
Customized Bootstrap Template Website Creation using HTML, CSS, jQuery
Calvin Alexander Ramsay, an author and playwright who has been featured in the New York Times and Humans of New York, needed a personal website to publicize his work. I customized a Bootstrap template to be fully responsive and optimized for tablet and mobile devices. I also took the author’s photograph for the homepage. When building this page, I focused on creating a layout that would showcase this website’s content clearly so visitors could learn more about the client and his writing.
“Silvia is a professional web developer who listens to her clients’ needs and wants. Silvia has special talents and work ethics that I find refreshing. Silvia completed my website in a speedy and professional manner. Silvia is a friendly, passionate and caring person.”

2. Sandhya Prabhakaran
New Custom Bootstrap Website Creation (HTML, CSS, jQuery)
Sandhya Prabhakaran is a postdoctoral research scientist who required a platform to present her academic achievements and display her career path. I focused on creating a clear structure for the website that separated content into relevant sections. Using Bootstrap, I created a website that functions as a fully responsive and interactive CV optimized for tablet and mobile displays. In later iterations of the website, I simplified the visual design to direct readers’ focus towards the client’s achievements.
“I have had the extreme pleasure of knowing Silvia as a good friend and dedicated person. Silvia designed my professional webpage for Columbia and I am really pleased with her work. She is very quick and receptive to your requirements and adds a touch of her creativity too. I will certainly go to her again for Webpage designing and strongly recommend her services for aesthetically-sound webpages.”

3. Elisa Kaufmann, MD
New Custom Coded Website and Brand Identity Creation (HTML, CSS, jQuery, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator)
The client, a psychiatrist and psychotherapist who works in private practice, needed a brand and website to advertise her business. I first concentrated on the business’s identity by creating a custom logo to develop a visual brand. The logo was created in Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. Simple and stylish, it clearly displays the psychiatrist’s initials and can be used in both digital and print media.
I then designed the client’s website around that identity system. The website is hand-coded from scratch—no templates or pre-existing frameworks were used in its development. The website is fully responsive, optimized for all desktop and mobile displays. It features a modern parallax scrolling effect and a jQuery plugin to facilitate smooth and seamless navigation.
“Silvia worked for me to design my private practice website. She is very reliable and pays high attention to every single detail, she understands the client’s wish right away, visualizes the outcome and designs the website. She is great in graphic designing as well and created my website logo. I highly recommend her to anyone. She can be a great asset to any company. Thanks a lot for a great job!”

One-Page Custom Coded Website (Adobe Photoshop, HTML, CSS)
The client, a neurologist, needed a simple one-page website with links to the doctors’ existing individual websites. I created the website using a Photoshop-edited background picture with a subtle and modern gradient effect and a color scheme and text font matching the client logos and existing websites.
