Please tell us a bit about your background. How did you get started in design?

I have been building sites and graphics since the early 90s. As the industry grows and changes, so does the training and skills necessary to keep up. I do this on a daily basis.


How long have you been with your company?

I have owned this company (and it's previous identity) for 8 years.


Are you self taught or did you attend school for your industry?

Self-taught. And this is a better approach since the technology changes on a weekly basis.


What web browser do you use?

I typically use Chrome as it is the most ideal for website design.


What social media do you use for work and play? Do you have a favorite?

Facebook is my primary go-to


What is your favorite thing about the type of work you do?

I get to be creative every day. There is nothing typical about the work I do. Which makes it fun and exciting all of the time.


What advice would you give to someone looking to get into the web design field?

Persistence.


What`s your favorite development language and why?

I am not a developer. But if I had to choose I would choose PHP since it is what makes up Wordpress (my primary platform for building sites)


If you could only use one language, which one would it be?

I am not a developer. But if I had to choose I would choose PHP since it is what makes up Wordpress (my primary platform for building sites)


What do you see as the most prominent emerging technology?

3D Augmented Virtual Reality


Who is your typical client at the moment and what types of projects are you working on?

I typically work with business that are small enough to still outsource their web and graphic needs.


What advice would you give a client in order to prepare for a new project?

Come with an open mind and a willingness to discuss the project and possible solutions that haven't been thought of.


What is the most common problem you deal with when working with new clients who do not have much experience with working with designers?

Clients in this situation try to make things way too hard.


Do you use a CRM (Customer Relationship Manager) or any type of project management or proposal software?

I use Excel to manage projects.


What is your standard hourly rate?

124


Do you have a minimum budget for a new client?

I work with clients at many levels and based on their needs. Therefore, the budget question doesn't really apply.
