What is your standard hourly rate?

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

I got started in design during high school because I loved art and have continued this passion into a career.


How long have you been with your company?

Previously I worked for a Fine Art gallery for 5 years. Before that I worked with a cycling company for over 3 years. I currently freelance and I have been freelancing since 2003.


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

B.S. in Visual Arts, self taught Wed design and I use Lynda.com to learn more constantly and to improve my skills.


What web browser do you use?

Chrome & Firefox mainly.


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

Facebook is arguably the most common form of quick communication. I use a few others such as LinkedIn,Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube consistently for work and play.


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

Helping people achieve their visions with my technical skills while using my complex computer skills to provide quick and visible progress towards the clients goals.


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

Practice constantly, study hard and learn as much as possible wherever you can.


What`s your favorite development language and why?

HTML and CSS, I have been studying them for years. PHP, Javascript, and other languages also have their advantages depending on the scope and needs of the project.


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

I wouldn't pick one language, they often complement each other and each language shares the same logic and structure necessary to develop ideas.


What do you see as the most prominent emerging technology?

Responsive web design. It simplifies visual layout processes across multiple platforms. Responsive Design allows clients and users alike to simplify and enhance their viewing experiences from tablets, email, computers and to cell phones.


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

My clients vary from photography, websites, logo designs, catalogs, business cards, clothing design, and video. I pretty much do it all!


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

Organization is key! Having your information and goals organized during the process will allow your designer to work efficiently and save you money!


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

Translating computer technology and it's limitations, it's boundaries, and it's terms to easily understood guidelines that will save time and money for the client.


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

Not currently.


Do you have a minimum budget for a new client?

No, but please be reasonable.
