Website Design Star Website Design

Website Design

Designing for the web is my strongest passion and I do it non-stop. My experience ranges from optimized landing pages to full-fledged international company websites, e-commerce sites, musician sites, and just about everything in between.

User engagement and ease of navigation is always the key while keeping in mind content and design go hand in hand and should compliment each other 100% of the time to create a great user experience.

Web Development Star Web Development

Website Development

I eat, sleep, and dream code. I fill my brain with XHTML, CSS, Javascript, PHP, JQuery, and Wordpress day in and day out by building some awesomely functioning, standards-compliant, clean-coded, usable websites.

Whether it be client sites or my own personal projects, I've had the opportunity to take entire online brands from start to finish, from the design stage straight into the development and launch stage. No handoffs required over here. I couldn't love it more.

Print/Graphic Design Star Print/Graphic Design

Print/Graphic Design

When I'm not designing for the web, I'm probably obsessing over some crazy print graphics. From flyers, posters, and business cards, to conceptual billboard ad designs, entire multi-medium ad campaigns, and professional experience in apparel and merchandise design, I love it all.

The passion I have for my hobbies bleeds over indefinitely to my professional work as I love designing art for skis and snowboards too.

Email Newsletter Marketing Campaigns

I fully understand the importance of continual business, traction, and interaction with your customers and users. I know the ins and outs and best practices of designing email newsletters as well as the best way to go about starting an email campaign with your users. Maximum impact with minimal cost is always the key.

By the way, I'm a very avid supporter and user of MailChimp. It's great.

Social Media Star Social Media Wizardry

Social Media, Facebook, Twitter

Oh the joys and endless possibilities of social media today. And the many pitfalls there are when people can't do it right.

From basic branding designs on Twitter and Facebook, to experience with custom "Like" and "Tweet" promotional giveways, custom Facebook page development, and social media integration into email newsletters and ecommerce - my experience taking a brand social is pretty extensive.

SEO/Traffic Analysis Star SEO/Traffic Analysis

Search Engine Optimization

I know how to analyze and research your industry, your keywords, and your competition as well as the necessary items needed to start a stable SEO campaign to give you realistic results on the search engines.

I can also effectively break down the traffic on your site by understanding and harnessing the power of Google Analytics, showing you improvements as well as successful conversions.
