(A nonprofit organization for the programs that are held around July
4th in Boston. The new site is intended to satisfy the need for a stronger
presence. After designing last year's site, and receiving nearly 20,000
hits in a one week, the new site is intended to withstand this many
visitors. The information has not changed drastically, but the design
needed to be more up to date, while still portraying a nonprofit.)
Historic District Commission
(Part of the town government site, the goal was to work within the existing
parameters but provide detailed information for applicants.)
(Designed from the bottom up after taking on the work from the previous
webmaster, this site is intended to provide ease of use and quick access
to information on the organization. Therefore the goal was to be clean
and not technologically advanced. Aaron is also responsible for their
Association for History and Computing
(The current site is basically a method for connecting to information
on the organization. However, this site will be undergoing major work
in the next few months to provide a real portal for this organization
dedicated to computing and technology in history.)
Past Preservation Network
(The work on this site is mostly administrative and based on previous
designs. Aaron is also their newsletter editor.)
Sites which have contracted in the past
(A Nonprofit museum dedicated to the preservation and understanding of
diners, an American Tradition. The site needed to be an understated site,
but still have a strong retro feel to it. After clicking through the opening
page, the user will be presented with a postcard view of a diner interior.
By clicking on the various parts of the diner, you will enter the site.
There are to be image galleries, events listings, and museum related information.
This is to be the main site for the entire organization's lifetime.)

period as webmaster and preservationist. Provided solutions related
to forms, memberships, and online databases. Revised current database
for ease of use. Acted as troubleshooter for network and desktop clients.)

to the Homestead board.)
School in Building Archaeology at RWU

a straightforward electronic version derived from the paper version.
A more complex site is in the planning stages, but they are currently
(A site for a children's singer, this site shows how Cymatium can work
with for-profit groups. The site was to have primary colors and an childish
feel, but still maintain a look that adults would enjoy.)
for Graduate Students in History
(This site will be for the students in the Masters of Arts Program at
MTSU. It will contain evens, pictures, links, and more.)
(This site was intended to be the first site for this organization,

(This site will be the main site for the Rutherford County Archives.
It will contain information on the archives, as well as scanned images
of documents from the early history of the county.)

something which the current design does not do.)

information, and faculty bios.)

concept were by Cymatium. Cymatium led the faculty in the implementation
of new design concepts and taught the faculty in HTML and web graphic
Island @ Home
(What was to become a resource directory for Rhode Island homeowners
and town administrators has fallen to the wayside for other projects.
This site, a beta version, shows off some of Cymatium's Java programming.
Although we specialize in graphic design, we hand code nearly 60% of
all our sites, so we offer a choice unparalleled in New England.)
These sites are intended
to show off Cymatium's skills in design work. They are not posted on
the web, and do not reflect work done for any specific group or person.
(Commercial Archaeology.com is intended to be a scholarly site about
the roadside and roadside architecture. Therefore, a strong road feel
had to be given to the site, while maintaining a scholarly look.)
(This site is intended to be a jobs and resources guide, similar to
the House O' Preservation, seen above. It is have a strong preservation
look, but keep its ease of navigation.)
(This site is intended to be an online magazine about rural lifestyles.
This meant that earthy colors and styles were necessary. Navigation
had to be strong as well. The tone was to be informal, but magazine-like.)
