Graphic & Website Designer
I have 15+ years experience in graphic design, web design/development, illustration and marketing direction.
I spend much of my time in Photoshop, completing photo editing projects and hand-drawn illustrations. I utilize Illustrator for custom vector graphics (logos, icons). My design portfolio includes everything from full 70+ page magazines (print & web) to interactive form development through PDFs and online tools.
I've trained myself to code in HTML, PHP and CSS as an complement to my website design services and I own a website design company that specializes in WordPress design and development. I am able to create custom WordPress themes and have vast knowledge of the WordPress plugin catalog as it relates to security, e-Commerce, social media (Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, Linkedin, Twitter, etc.), email marketing (Mailchimp & Constant Contact) and sitemap add-ons. I have extensive experience with Gravity Forms and implementation of user generated content systems. I have also integrated affiliate and referral programs.
I setup and manage Google Analytics and Webmasters on all websites that I work with.
I would describe myself as someone who has a strong design sensibility who took the time to develop the tools that brings those designs to life. I go the extra mile with every project to ensure the finished product is a good representation of my high standards of design, print, and code.
