Any type of web project revolves around a specific
goal. Whether you want to establish a corporate identity, showcase your photography in a portfolio,
or advertise a play,
the creative process starts off-paper.
Consider the following questions as guides. Do
you wish to be a strong competitor in a field, or is it more important
to stand out on your own? What is the purpose of your website? Is
it to mobilize, to educate, or to advertise? Brainstorm about adjectives
that you would like your site to exude.
The next step is researching the competition —
paying attention to layout, font selection, and color schemes. With
some grounding, I can proceed to experiment with paper thumbnails
and a sitemap. In consultation with the client, two or three sketches
are chosen and brought into Photoshop to be further refined.
When a certain design is agreed upon, I can begin
to put together a finalized site. The structure of the website is
fixed and information is put into the appropriate sections. The
creative phase is over, and it is time to provide the content behind

I see graphic design as a digital reflection of
the client. It is your identity. My skill set revolves around sculpting
that personality in an intriguing manner. I am a visual thinker,
fluent in Adobe software (Photoshop, Illustrator, Pagemaker), Macromedia
software (Flash, Dreamweaver, Fireworks), Corel Draw, and Quark
XPress. Additionally, I am proficient in Final Cut Pro.
I can hand-code HTML/CSS, but I find Dreamweaver
to be a great time-saving tool. For more technically complex projects
(PHP, etc), I can collaborate with more skilled programmers. The
web design process can be divided into artistic and technical parts,
and it is imperative for me to deliver strongly in both aspects.
