I'm James Scariati, a front-end web developer for CüR Media, Inc., and formerly a web development consultant for Mercedes-Benz USA. I build standards-compliant websites and landing pages that take advantage of the latest HTML5 and CSS3 development techniques and are cross-browser compatible.

Raditaz 2012

Complete website redesign for Raditaz, a personalized Internet radio service. Raditaz users can create their own radio stations by entering up to five of their favorite artists or songs; an advanced algorithm will automatically build a station that matches their exact preferences. Users can even fine-tune their stations by adjusting artist or song popularity and other settings.

Michaels Jewelers 2011

Complete website redesign for Michaels Jewelers, a jewelry store chain based in Connecticut. The site makes use of cutting-edge features like CSS3 transitions and animations to create an engaging experience that also degrades gracefully in older browsers.

In addition, a custom-built CMS allows site administrators and store owners to upload new promotional images, create and update store events, and more.

Pyramid Collection Savings Club 2011

Full site build for a members-only online shopping catalog. The site was coded to be easily reusable for additional catalogs in the future; the entire look and feel can be replaced just by swapping a few stylesheets and images.

FreeScore 2010

FreeScore provides its members with their credit scores from all three credit reporting bureaus, along with a library of credit information and identity theft protection services.

As lead front-end developer for FreeScore's updated account management process, I was responsible for the creation of a new member login page and a series of other related pages. I employed features such as live form field validation and a password strength meter to make the signup process more interactive and engaging. Site metrics later proved that the improvements were highly successful.

Mercedes-Benz USA 2009

I assisted in the launch of MBUSA's new website, building a series of HTML pages and troubleshooting browser rendering inconsistencies. I even recreated a number of Flash-based landing pages with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript (animations included!) to provide greater compatibility with mobile devices.

I was also instrumental in bringing older internal sites up to date with current web standards and best practices.
