Designing is more than just the ability to create pretty pictures. It is marketing, communication, understanding and even a little brain washing. Beginning my career as a "Commercial Artist" I have caried that mindset over into th world of web design and website marketing. My day-to-day consist of interviewing clients and developing ideas that will market them, their product or their business to the visiting community. If I am not designing in Photoshop or Illustrator, I am building custom css layouts in multiple Content Management Systems (CMS - Joomla, Drupal, WorPress, etc.). My design skill set is always expanding along with my passion for clean - optimize code.
"Design is about making things good (and then better) and right (and fantastic) for the people who use and encounter them."
