Full Stack Web Designer

I am a Full Stack Web Designer that focuses on web consulting that covers more than just design and website development.

I provide professional insight in all major areas of a web presence (design, development, branding, market integration, social media, analytics, etc.). More importantly, integrating your web presences seamlessly into your organization, business and/or sales processes.

From modern single-source web presences to large-scale projects that utilize my network of trusted web professionals, I provide cost-effective solutions, yielding the greatest ROI's possible.

My philosophy is that our time working together should be spent understanding how to increase sales, improve brand awareness and building stronger customer experience. Understanding your goals starts with the basic process of communication. Once we have a clear understanding of your priorities we can start the process of conceptualizing strong strategies that will deliver a clear message to your audience.

A wireframe is a page schematic or screen blueprint that serves as a visual guide that represents the skeletal framework of a website. Wireframes are created for the purpose of arranging elements to best accomplish our presence’s particular purpose. Wireframes usually exclude typographic styles, colors, and graphics, but prioritizes the content, copy and/or message.

Front-end web development is the process of introducing HTML, CSS, and JavaScript to the web presence so that our objectives can be visually represented.
