Revelation Concept Site Launch!

Finally, after nearly three years of procrastination and obsessive-compulsive redesign after redesign…Revelation Concept is back online!

Thank You

Thank you to everyone who has shown interest in this project, and to all of my friends and family that have suffered through my working on the weekends to get this done.

Revelation Concept Launch

A huge thanks to my amazing clients, without whom non of this would even be relevant! It’s been a true pleasure working with each and every one of you…your continued support and referrals are the base of my entire business, I value you more than you know.

The Design

I’m obsessed with old etchings…so I knew I had to integrate those. After going back and forth (for two years) on a few heavily detailed retro-based designs, I decided to step back and took a more minimalist approach. I incorporated the idea of early science and discovery since the main purpose of this site will be to give back to the opensource community with various “How To” articles and tutorials for up and coming designers/developers. I’m really happy with the way it turned out…but it’s still a work in progress!

Most of the engraving images on this site were purchased from iStock Photo, with the remainder coming from ClipArt. The main body copy is “Georgia”, headers are “Blair ITC Med” thanks to Other fonts in the headers include “Blanch” by Atipus, the ever popular and highly abused “Wisdom Script” by James Edmondson, and my logo font “Haymaker” by the hugely talented Trevor Baum.

The Development

At the last minute, I decided to take it up a notch and make this site responsive. So check that out! Huge thanks to the 1140 Gird Framework, which was a breeze to use and performs wonderfully. I used HTML5 Reset as the base for all of my WordPress development projects, with that being said…yes, this site runs on WordPress! I built a custom theme and framework around my design…it’s not quite finished, but good enough for launch day.

The Deployment

I proudly host this site at MediaTemple. I made the move to them about two years ago and couldn’t be happier with their quality service and support. I’m currently in a dedicated MySQL GridContainer, but will more than likely be moving to Dedicated Virtual Hosting in the near future.


I think that pretty much covers everything! Please leave your comments on this page, I would love your feedback.

    The site is YOU! Entertaining and classy, and yet this awesome “something” that pulls it together. The images and style are perfect. It’s so easy to navigate and yet so detailed. I feel like I actually learned something about web design by reading your different links. Which is a huge for me! While I missed you on weekends I am not only proud but honored to have a friend who I can refer people to and brag about with full confidence! God truly has blessed you with a gift. Your customers sites are amazing, and so completely different. Hearing about, and reading your journey truly shows your love and stunning ability for this! I’m so proud of you! Congrats on the site being done!
