Welcome

You have come upon my web portfolio! Below and throughout this site, you will find some of my work in web, illustration, photography, and other personal interests.

I’ve kept the descriptions relatively short so that you can spend more time browsing each and every project but of course, you can always send me a note if you have any questions.

https://luispenton.com

(09/2016) Luis Javier Pentón Herrera is an English as a Second Language (ESL) high school teacher and an adjunct college professor. He uses his portfolio to showcase his experiences and publications to become more successful in his teaching career, and as a recent PhD. graduate, he aspires to become a university professor.

Luis’ teaching portfolio was created using WordPress and as a busy professional, it was important for him to use an easy and intuitive platform that he can edit himself on a constant basis.

All photos/portraits on his website were also taken by me.

Filipino Young Professionals of DC

https://fypdc.org/

January 2013 – Present

The Filipino Young Professionals of Washington, D.C. (FYP-DC) is organized exclusively for recreational, social, educational, and charitable purposes.

I joined the organization in early 2013 and volunteered to take on the migration of their website to a new platform (Squarespace), which proved to be a challenge at first. I successfully migrated all their content from an archaic Yahoo website/listserv to a new platform.

During the first two years (2013-2015), I served as the webmaster and the primary social media manager. I updated the website, created electronic forms, event invitations, flyers, and answered inquiries from the web contact form. I now serve FYP as a web and social media consultant and work with other members to promote our mission.

I also created the FYP-DC Facebook page which boasts almost 2,000 followers (as of 2018). Additionally, I managed Twitter, Instagram, and their LinkedIn group.

Together In Hope

http://togetherinhope.org/

(June 2013 – April 2014)

Together in Hope’s mission is to empower lives and communities in need. They are serving communities in the Philippines, Ethiopia, and El Salvador.

As a volunteer web designer and maintenance, I updated the site with new visuals including photos and illustrations. The homepage carousel was created by me. The Programs page was also completely redone. I’ve included graphics/illustrations and enhanced existing photos. Finally, the Support Us page was also completely redone including the creation of grids, icons, and an illustration to showcase the distribution of the accepted donations.

http://uspsca.wixsite.com/uspscassociation

While an intern at US Agency for International Development, I was asked to redesign the site for the U.S. PSC Association (USPSCA).

This website was created using a content management system system called Wix.

Their mission is–

The Personal Services Contractor Association strives to advocate for and provide support to the hundreds of U.S. personal services contractors (USPSCs) that work tirelessly to advance sustainable development worldwide on behalf of USAID.

Philosopher Dog

Philosopher Dog is one of my earliest projects while completing graduate school. The website requirement was a redesign of the old site, which was created with images and links only. This new site was created using Squarespace as requested by the owner.
