Web Designer/ WordPress Expert
I am a recent college graduate and am starting my own web design company. My goal on Odesk is to get some initial projects under my belt, build an awesome portfolio, and add some references.
I design exclusively with WordPress, which is the most popular content management system on the web. It also is very easy for end users to use and make changes to their website, even if they aren't particularly tech savvy. WordPress can really be used for anything, whether it's a blog, e-commerce (I use WooCommerce and WP e-commerce), real estate, an ordering or booking system, a forum, social network, calendar capabilities, image galleries (NextGen or WordPress Gallery), or just a basic informational website. There really is no end to what WordPress can do!
My preferred design aesthetic is minimalist, using lots of whites, greys, and blacks along with some pops of color. I like to make content the focus of the site, while also providing a simple user interface. I always design with SEO in mind (using Yoast, Google Analytics, and Sitemaps), and integrate social media like Facebook, Twitter, and Google Plus whenever possible.
