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

I received an art degree from the University of Iowa. I worked at a design firm. I started my firm in 1998.


How long have you been with your company?

Brad Miller Design is a graphic design and marketing firm located in Chicago. Since 1998, we’ve been in the business of meeting and exceeding our clients’ needs.


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

I received an art degree from the University of Iowa. As a designer you are alway learning new skills. I am self-taught web designer since I started doing it before it was taught.


What web browser do you use?

Chrome is great. I also use Firefox due to its plugins. As a web design firm you need to be able to test sites across platforms. It helps to look at your work on several browsers.


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

Facebook is my favorite. We use them all.


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

I love learning about all different types of businesses. I love helping them becomes successful. Sometimes we feel like clients "secret weapons". It's more like we are partners as opposed to just hired guns.


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

Work on speed and efficiency. This is a deadline driven industry and a by the hour billing process. If you are slow or waste time, you are wasting client's money. Work smart and fast.


What`s your favorite development language and why?

CSS. As a designer that was limited by plain HTML for years, CSS was a game-changer.


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

PHP. Database driven sites are the only way to go.


What do you see as the most prominent emerging technology?

I will not answer because the information will immediately become dated.


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

We have no typical client and that is really fun. We work with law firms, medical offices, financial firms, real estate firms, and just about every industry.


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

Think about your end goal. What is your most important goal?

Your project should be built to accomplish that goal first.


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

I can say nothing bad about my clients.


What is your standard hourly rate?

85


Do you have a minimum budget for a new client?

No.
