I’ve had the opportunity to serve as design consultant and web developer for my father’s family business, RJ Owen Associates, for some time. In addition to creating graphics for advertisements and branding over the years, I have maintained the company’s web properties, including rjowen.com and the upcoming Mech Room, the online storefront.
The business is a consulting firm, providing technical solutions, parts and training, and development of a variety of engineered systems. My task with the main website was to develop a web presence that is modern and professional, yet well representative of the traditional, personable face-to-face nature of the business.
I created a new, structured website, heavily customizing a business-oriented WordPress theme with shiny graphical elements and clean, semantic code; imported and redirected Rodney’s separate engineering blog, Mechanical Incline.
