Pelorian Designed Website Example

Dorothea Joyce

Client’s Request:

Grammy-winning songwriter, author, and “inner perspective performance artist” Dorothea Joyce asked us to build a website that would promote her various activities, and offer a sales page for Books, CDs, and DVDs. She requested:

  • an introduction to Dorothea
  • a variety of pages describing her philosophy and activities
  • a “market” page
  • contact info
Designer’s Comments:

This website was built in 2005 using a frame structure, which was acceptable at the time. Modern HTML and CSS allow for much greater freedom in design, but this site used the frame structure to enhance the graphic look in interesting ways. In retrospect, you could say this was an early version of what we now call a responsive design (watch the graphic elements at the top of the site adjust as you resize the browser window). We’ve made additions to the website periodically as Dorothea creates new work.

Technology Used:

Computer applications and web technology used in building this website

  • Adobe Photoshop for creating graphics
  • Adobe Dreamweaver for editing and transferring various website files
  • PayPal integration
  • early JavaScript for navigation and animation
  • A variety of SEO techniques


“I love the website! It’s a class act. And very different from any other sites I have seen. So well organized!”
