'63 Stingray

'63 Stingray

This project was perfect--I love cars, web design and photography. Though simple, this site provides a nice look into a classic 1963 Corvette. I took all of the photos and video then designed and developed this simple site. The car sold, so I'd call it a success!

Client Testimonials

Diane Sudhoff

Owner of Southhouse Designs

Over 2 years, I have contracted with 8 different students and "professionals" to develop my website. Cameron is the only one that I have been satisfied with. Cameron actually listened to me. He very quickly demonstrated that he had a solid grasp of what I wanted to achieve, including the look and the functionality I wanted and needed. Even though I had already committed to a development tool he didn't know, he was willing to adapt. When I needed to make concessions due to feasibility and budget, he pointed these out with viable alternatives. He delivered a finished product of exactly what we discussed, on budget and on time - unheard of! But Cameron went beyond this. He graciously tutored me a bit to get me over a couple of technical stumbling blocks that had stymied me as I was building my content. Professional, knowledgeable, timely, oh yes, and genuine. Can't ask for much more!

Jacquie Lamer

Professor at Northwest Missouri State University

Cameron is one of the brightest student web developers I've met in twelve years of teaching. What really makes him stand out are his stand-up morals and kind personality. He is hard working, hands down. He’s self-motivated and resourceful. He is many years more advanced than his peers in his understanding of business processes and business relations. Cameron is advanced in his knowledge of web site architecture options, content management systems, HTML and CSS -- I’m sure he’ll show you samples of his work, and you’ll see for yourself his solid approach to site structure and solid design. He’s very sensitive to multi-screen development. He’s worked with several content management systems, to the extent that he can advise businesses on possible web solutions. I’ve personally sent some freelance clients his way, something I’m loath to do after some bad experiences matching students with people who ask me the standard Got-any-students-who-want-to-practice-their-web-building-skills question. After acting as advisor for Cameron’s summer internship, I could clearly see that he’s different. He does what he says he’ll do; he doesn’t over promise; he finds solutions to problems; he accepts personal responsibility for his work; and he asks a lot of the right questions.

Trisha Kellogg

Former Senior Marketing Manager at Northwest Medical Center

Cameron Ramaekers is a talented individual. We hired Cameron to help develop a user-friendly, attractive web-site and he did just that and much more. His work was professional and exceeded expectations, so much so, that we hired him for additional graphic design work. Cameron is a hard-working individual with integrity and class. I really enjoyed working with him and will employ his services in the future.

Owner of Designs by Addie Lee

I love my website! Cameron was very professional and did a great job designing my website. He was able to include everything I wanted and made it look better than I could have ever done on my own. Even though we live in different cities he was still very helpful and thorough in explaining how to maintain the website myself. My website has helped to promote my new business and my sales have increased since the inception.

About Me

I am the owner and sole web developer and designer at Open Caret, a web development and design shop that I started in 2015. I work with a handful of advertising and digital agencies in the greater Omaha area and am always looking for opportunities to network.

When not buried in code or layers deep in Photoshop, I enjoy traveling with family and friends, spending time outdoors and taking on DIY home and garage projects.
