As a co-owner of Long Island's first seven-day-a-week fencing center, I developed our website as a showcase for the school. The site was designed to serve two main audiences:
- Current students: Interested in upcoming events, scheduling, recent tournament results
- Prospective students: Interested in class schedules, fees, directions, and general information
The site had two particular highlights:
- The Flash-based introduction, which I created by working backwards from the logo, which had been designed by another owner.
- The navigation system, which won a class award while I was first learning web development.
The FCLI is now defunct, and the owners scattered across the US, but operating the school and building and maintaining that website remain a happy memory.
