New “” WordPress Theme

As part of the transition from “The Replacement Komics” to “Karl Habegger” I’m working on creating a new WordPress theme and Content Management System. It is substantially more complex than previous themes I’ve used. I’ve worked on a lot of WordPress themes and skins, but this is the first time I’ve built one from the ground up.

Web Design: Antithesis Art

Back in November of 2007, Richard Dominguez and I decided to use the power of the internet to apply peer pressure to each other. The goal was to make certain we both stayed focused on creating art. It grew into the site known as Antithesis Art. I originally wrote the site in PHP, CSS, and created a back end using MySQL. It was an excellent exercise and forced me to learn things I wouldn’t have otherwise. As we added additional people to the fun, the administrative duties piled up. The back end was inelegant and had a VERY steep learning curve, so I ended up doing all of the administrative work to keep the content updated. Eventually this led to a long ugly hiatus.

Web Design and WordPress theme for Cooling Cycle by Karl Habegger

Web Design: Cooling Cycle

Client: Cooling Cycle

Services: Complete web design. Content Management System programming. WordPress development.

Cooling Cycle did not have a solid web presence when we started. I researched their competition and vendors and developed a design concept for them. They liked it and we went forward. I found a WordPress theme that had some of their desired layout already. I then replaced and recoded the theme until it functioned and looked the way we wanted.

They liked the initial design, but will not be featuring water activities as the land they are looking to aquire does not have rivers or lakes attached. They wanted something greener!

Design Concept: Brookside Camp

This was my first rough draft of a design concept for Brookside Camp in Indiana. The camp does not exist yet and has since been put on hold indefinitely, but hopefully will one day be open for campers.

Web Design: Zionsville Fellowship Church

In 2004 I started working with Dynamic HTML. I began using include files pulling headers and footers. I was wearing a rut in the spine of my copy of “Web Design in a Nutshell” by Jennifer Robins. The days were fast and heady. My church needed a web site, and I volunteered to do the job. It was a great experience. I learned a lot about automatic resizing, javascript drop down menus and media downloading. It was my first major project and I’m still pretty pleased with the result.

Web Design:

The very first domain name I ever purchased was back in 1998. Sweet, right? Totally. Since then, I have built a total of six different web sites on Fishvan, but it has always been the “internet home of Karl Habegger”. This iteration used CSS, PHP, and DIV tags to give the illusion of translucent (not transparent) boxes. Without further ado, here is the current version of in all of its glory.
