Welcome!

The Carpeted Wall.

My name is Carl "Coz" Baldwin.

 

I'm what the industry considers a front-end web designer. I think.
It's so hard to define these days. I primarily design websites and graphics. I've got an eye for detail and constantly analyze usability in what I (and others) create. Additionally, I've been known to dabble in photography and other artistic mediums. This is what I've chosen as my career because I love seeing tangible evidence that I had a hand in creating something.

You can consider this website my online portfolio. To get started, you can use the menu above to browse through the various types of media I've created over the years.

News

02/19/2012Stage Magazine has undergone a very smooth rebranding and The Carpeted Wall is very proud to have helped. Along with a domain name switch, Stage required a new logo and a new website, both of which have been added into the portfolio.

11/07/2011A new section has surfaced on the site. Print work! This is where I will place examples of graphic design work I've done for print. Obviously...

10/11/2010 A new logo has been added to our portfolio, thanks to Eighty6 Appeal who commissioned The Carpeted Wall to design a logo for use on their business cards. There are talks that TCW will also be tapped to design and build a website for this new, independant cosmetology business.

10/06/2010 As a result of a successful re-design of thevillageplayers.com, The Carpeted Wall has now added stagepartners.org (A.K.A. STAGE Magazine) to its website portfolio. This site was also programmed in Wordpress and should provide its many dedicated followers a new, flashier look and a greater organization of current and past reviews, interviews, and local theatre announcements and press releases. Additionally, the Member's Only area of the website was able to be transferred to this new layout without disturbing the current subscriptions whatsoever.

09/15/2010 The Carpeted Wall is proud to present the newest addition to our portfolio of design. Thevillageplayers.com asked us to help with a new design of their site and we hope the new design presents a more informative and organized representation of the theater company. Programmed in Wordpress, this re-design is not only giving The Village Players of Hatboro a fresh look, but also provides many more ways for users to engage with the group via RSS, Facebook, and Twitter (which TCW also helps maintain).
But that's not all! TCW has recently been commissioned to re-design stagepartners.org, the familiar newsletter found in theater lobbies and in the hands of theater actors and devotees! More info later when that site, which will also be programmed using the Wordpress CMS, launches.

05/23/2010 The Carpeted Wall receives its second re-design in 9 years. It's been fun looking back at the original design from 2001 and a refreshing change from the design launched in 2005. I hope it serves as a more professional looking showcase of some of my best efforts over the years. Of course, I'm sure it will continue to evolve further as time goes on.

07/31/2008 Since a growing number of web surfers are investigating their way to this website today in the wake of a tragic event, I'd like to express my sympathy for the families and friends involved with those who lost their lives today in the plane crash which occured in Minnesota. Secondly, I should mention that although East Coast Jets still uses my design for their website, I forfeited all webmaster duties back in January 2007 (approximately) and have not been in communication with anyone in the company since then. So if you're looking for any information here, I've got nothing for you.

04/02/2006 The ultimate Tally Hall fan headquarters, hiddeninthesand.com, is launched. After months of researching, designing, and learning, this has been a tough personal project to put together and it's still not completed. Most likely, it will be one of those sites that will be constantly morphing, adjusting, and adapting as time goes on. With a completely interactive and comprehensive FAQ system, a Flash based chatroom (complete with file sharing, AI bots, interchangable themes which the users can control and edit, and fun sounds), and lots more interactivity, this is THE place to learn, connect, and share with other Tally Hall fans. www.hiddeninthesand.com

01/03/2006 The Carpeted Wall has just completed and launched its newest website, www.eastcoastjets.com. Need to charter a jet? Consider East Coast Jets. There are great guys and gals there and they're sure to treat you right.

Also, East Coast Jets, Inc. has chosen The Carpeted Wall to redesign their website. So be on the lookout for a new addition to the portfolio in the near future!

08/04/2005 Congratulations to The Carpeted Wall for receiving a major facelift. The unnecessary menu options have been taken away to create more of a portfolio feel rather than a half portfolio/half sales-pitch objective. The design portfolios have been upgraded with Flash animations (don't skip over the cool new photo restoration examples!) and my new graphic design resume has been added for your viewing pleasure. I welcome any feedback you have, good or bad.

07/27/2005 After almost 4 years, this site will be receiving a new design in the coming days/weeks.  Stay tuned!

11/21/2003 The Carpeted Wall is now hosted by ProHosters -- who are the absolute best hosting company out there.  If I was a celebrity, I would endorse them without pay.  Thank you ProHosters for helping to breathe new life into The Carpeted Wall.

10/06/2003 Finally, The Carpeted Wall has been updated!  Check out Services, Portfolio, and About sections to see all the changes.   The guestbook is also back up and running.  If you've received services from me or you're just cruising by, drop me a note in the guestbook!

08/22/2003 After a couple months of being unable to log into the server, I can now get in and update what I need to.  Please check back soon to see the additions.
