Florida State Poet Laureate Nominee

Charles Bane, Jr. is a renowned American poet, noted for his romantic use of language to explore humanistic themes. His two books, The Chapbook and the recent Love Poems have gained him praise and admiration from literary luminaries and everyday readers alike. Mr. Bane is the current Florida State Poet Laureate nominee. 

For Mr. Bane’s portfolio website I chose the Joomla platform with the K2 automated page structuring component for easy input of new items, along with a simple Flash animation for the homepage. The intentionally-simple black-and-white design creates a dramatic effect that echoes Mr. Bane’s writing.
