Hi, I'm Sara Chai Butler. I make websites — meaning: content strategy, UI design, graphic design and web development.


This is an ongoing project I created so I could teach myself computer programming things outside of my job description.  It's a chat program I built with Node that features intimate character-by-character real-time chatting just like the old IRC chat client build into ICQ.

I'm working on building support for user profiles and saving chat transcripts as well as making everything more secure.  I'll share a public link once I make sure someone can't use my crappy chat program to delete my web server.


Launch Effect WordPress Theme

Launch Effect is a user-friendly WordPress theme that has helped thousands of people create & customize great-looking landing pages without touching a single line of code.

UI Design, Web Design, Web Development. I blueprinted, designed and developed the free and paid versions of this responsive WordPress theme while at Barrel.   Additional features include integration with MailChimp, AWeber and Campaign Monitor.

The theme has been featured in Smashing Magazine, TechCrunch, The Next Web, and many other tech/startup and WordPress blogs worldwide.
