Ape Athletics is a unique fitness clothing brand based out of Fairfax, VA. The company was previously using a purchased theme from the Shopify store and eventually decided the theme wasn't cutting it and wanted a brand new, custom design for the site. I personally worked with owner, Peter Tran, to accomplish this and completely redesigned their storefront.

Bootstrap & jQuery were the primary components used to build their website as well as vanilla JS and CSS. Some of the unique features implemented are highlighted below:

  • Custom drop down navigation menus.
  • Custom 'Add to Cart' feature with animation.
  • Custom cart slide-out menu.
  • Color swatches for similar products displayed on product pages.
  • Custom product pages to display additional content about products.

Take a look at their site, linked here, to see the complete design and features implemented. Everything you see is part of a custom theme I developed using Shopify's standard 'Debut' theme as a baseline.

Testimonial: Coming Soon

'Merica Labz is the most patriotic supplement brand out there! They sell high quality and effective supplements with the true patriot in mind. The company was already in the process of rebuilding their storefront on Shopify and contacted me to help them finish and add some custom integrations. I worked primarily with their CMO, Kenton Engle, as well as their website developer, Kico, and graphic designer, Cesar, to help finish their new site. Note: I didn't create the graphics used. Cesar created them all and I integrated them.

Bootstrap & jQuery were the primary components used to build their website as well as vanilla JS and CSS. Some of the unique features implemented are highlighted below:

  • Custom cart slide-out menu.
  • Instagram feed to display recent posts.
  • Custom product pages to display additional content about products.

Testimonial from Kenton: "I had the pleasure of working with Taylor on two sites for our organization: the sites for both Core Nutritionals and ‘Merica Labz.
As anyone can see from a scroll through these sites, Taylor’s attention to detail, eye for design and typography, and most importantly, deft implementation of the site’s functional elements are impressive. Taylor’s easy going attitude and responsiveness are perhaps equal to his talents in both UI and UX. My emails to Taylor rarely went more than an hour without not only a response, but an in-depth response that addressed all my concerns.
I wholeheartedly recommend Taylor as a developer and will certainly be using him in the future."

Testimonial from Chase: "I followed Taylor's work through the redevelopment of some mutual friends' sites and knew immediately that he was my guy for an upcoming project of my own. I had a general idea of what I wanted to create for my personal brand as well as my small business, but after our first phone call Taylor helped me narrow down my vision and map out exactly what my online presence would look like. He carefully and creatively gave life to my ideas one line of code after another, I cannot recommend him enough for creating a seamless, user-friendly website for anyone else seeking the same unique and custom experience."

Taylor Bagwell

Full Stack Developer in Northern Virginia

About Me

I'm a self-driven and goal oriented full stack developer who's eager to work with clients to create elaborate, unique and intuitive products.

My name is Taylor Bagwell and I'm a full stack developer. I graduated from George Mason University with a degree in Applied Computer Science with a concentration in software engineering. As a kid I was always eager to take things apart and understand how they worked, in addition to building my own simple contraptions. So deep down I always knew I wanted to be an engineer but it wasn't until high school, when I took my first programming class, that I realized I wanted to be a software engineer. I've been employed in my field for nearly 3 years now and have learned a lot on the job. But my knowledge doesn't just come from my education and work expereince. I also try to learn new platforms in my spare time. I'm eager to learn new things so I don't like to wait around for an opportunity to present itself to learn something new. I'm a quick and adaptive learner so if there is a technology out there that you or I feel will better suit your needs then I will certainly learn it so that it can be integrated into your product. I like to take that kind of initiative because I'm a very driven person who works extremely hard in delivering the best products to my ability. I work closely with my clients to ensure that every piece of the product being developed meets exactly what they are looking for. Through building a relationship with myself you'll be able to work with me through every part of the development lifecycle from design to implementation to maintenance. Below is a list of some of my most relevant areas of knowledge (in no particular order):

  • HTML/JS/CSS (HTML5, CSS3, Vanilla JS, jQuery, Bootstrap & Materialize)
  • SEO Optimization
  • React JS
  • Node JS
  • AWS (API Gateway, Lambda, Route 53, Cloudfront, EC2, etc.)
  • JAVA
  • Android
  • Currently Learning iOS & React Native
  • C#/VB.NET
  • C
  • Ruby
  • SQL Server, Oracle PL/SQL & MySQL
  • RESTful Web Services (JAVA, C#/VB.NET & Node.JS)
  • Microsoft Dynamics CRM (Forms, Plugins, Database & Applications)

Whether you need a fresh design or already have a design in mind I can build a website with your vision in mind. It can be completely custom and built the way you design it or I can take creative design lead with your additional input.

Custom Shopify Theme

If your business currently uses Shopify, or you're looking to convert, and you're tired of the dull, basic Shopify themes available to you I provide services in building a completely custom Shopify store built around your preferences. I also can assist with setting up your storefront(products, inventory, images, etc).

While I do have plenty of experience working with Shopify I can still build your company's website into any other e-commerce platform as long as they allow for custom HTML/CSS/JS. Even if you're a small company and don't wish to go the route of an e-commerce platform, I can still build an online store fit to your needs and vision.

code
Application Development

I also provide application development services. Whether it be a desktop, mobile or web application. I can work with front-end (User Experience) and/or back-end (Database/Services) development depending on your company's needs. If your company has an existing platform and you want to create some form of application or service I can integrate that seemlessly into your existing platform.
