Prostate Laser Center
Website & Brand Update
In February of 2018, Dr. Ara Karamanian contacted me to create a variety of projects for him including three websites, the most important of which being for his private practice. Over the next few months, I worked at his office in the Houston Medical Center and developed an entirely redesigned website from scratch.
• Wordpress & Elementor Pro
• HTML & CSS
• Adobe Illustrator
• Adobe Muse
In many ways, this project was a trial by fire. It was my first website for a client and my first time doing something so large through Wordpress, so I learned quite a lot through this process.
The final website flows smoothly from full desktop size down to a condensed smartphone view with a custom menu and consultation bar.

Additional elements I contributed to the website were infographics, custom icons, and photographs I took of the office space.
Below is progress work, starting from Prostate Laser Center's original website and the prototype
I created in Adobe Muse.
I started this project with rough sketches and then created a full prototype in Adobe Muse. The design was then recreated in Wordpress using Elementor Pro, a plug-in that essentially turned Wordpress into a more designer-friendly website building tool. Accompanying Elementor's native tools, I also used a lot of CSS to get things just the way I wanted them.
A particular challenge was the navigation bar. In my Muse prototype, I had very easily created a drop-down "mega menu" that changed format when the screen became smaller, but Wordpress was finicky. After a lot of trial and error, I eventually was able to recreate my idea using a combination of Elementor, Jet menu, and a lot of CSS.
