CALIPER

My name is Eli Silverman and I make the internet.

I’m a New Yorker living in New Orleans, and I work with businesses to establish strong brands and fluid workflows. I build websites, design for both screen and print, create custom software and business tools on the web, and offer creative direction for design projects, both digital and physical.

Below is a selection of projects for you to browse.

Websites

Concordia Architecture & Planning

Comprehensive site redesign for New Orleans-based architecture firm Concordia. This custom WordPress theme features an unique responsive design for every page to allow for an optimal user experience on mobile devices.

Reginelli's Pizzeria

http://www.reginellis.com/

In the second half of 2013, I worked with Reginelli’s Pizzeria to completely redesign and restructure their website. The site was updated in conjunction with their newly-tuned logo and print materials, and I was lucky enough to work closely with Adam Newman, the graphic designer leading Reginelli’s new direction. We aimed to develop a web experience that incorporates elements of Reginelli’s print and space design, while still acknowledging the web as an independent medium; flatter design, visual cues dropped along the way to help guide users, and a thoroughly-considered cross-device experience (“responsive design”).

The site was built on WordPress, customized to allow Reginelli’s to manage their Menus, Locations, Accolades, media and text content in a straightforward and powerful way.
