Animation Design & Production
I've been working as a motion graphics designer for the past 7 years, creating full screen advertisements for use on digital signage. I love the process of designing a storyboard and then bringing it to life with programs like After Effects, Edge Animate, and Flash. My love of motion graphics inspires me to spend my free learning new techniques and exploring technology.
Creating excellent animations and websites begins with a solid strategy and a great design. Understanding how to choose an appropriate typeface, color scheme, and how to most effectively communicate an idea is essential to any project. I pride myself on being a problem solver, a skill that I often rely upon, as every project brings it's own unique challenges that require elegant solutions. I have a wealth of experience designing for all things digital, from storyboarding motion graphics to planning a complex website. In addition, I also have experience designing print projects such as posters, invitations, book covers, and more.
Being a graphic designer, with the ability to produce websites and animations, enables me to be able to take projects from concept to reality. I take pride in having a wide skill set and knowledge-base that allows me to understand and push technical limitations. I enjoy coming up with creative ways to mix & match technologies resulting in unique creations. As a detail oriented designer, I'm always conscientious of how the end result will come across to the audience. In my free time I enjoy challenging myself with personal projects, ranging from illustrations to animations.
Whether you need an entire website produced or just a single web-page, I can create a targeted and beautiful solution for your business. I offer two levels of service, full agency design and build, or a simple web production based on the design and structure you provide. I'm a front-end designer, meaning I can design your website on paper and then bring it to life with HTML. I also really enjoy working with developers to produce more complex websites that require back-end databases or complex coding solutions.
Your website needs a thoughtful strategy to draw in your ideal visitors and then prompt them into action. That action could be anything from filling out a form, buying a product, or watching a video. No matter what your goal is, it's important that the design is driven by this strategy and that the results are measurable.
Great web production is more than what meets the eye. It's an intelligently engineered website that is built with easy to update, light weight code. Like most things in life, website production is all about the details and shortcuts get you no where. Things like responsive layouts, web fonts, keyword consistency, meta tags, and tons more can really make the difference between a website that achieves your goals and one that does not.
Web Production Details:
HTML5 & CSS3 - I use the latest native web technology to create websites that work perfectly and look great.
General SEO - Search Engine Optimization is critical to the success of your website. One important aspect of SEO is building your website correctly. Here are a few of the things I'll do to help your website SEO: create a hierarchy to reflect SEO priorities, consistently & strategically use keywords, create a site-map, submit your website to search engines for indexing... and much more.
Optimize - The average attention span is shorter than this sentence, which is why I will make sure your website loads FAST. I’ll be building your website from the ground up, not based on some bulky template that loads way more code than your website needs to function.
Compatibility - I'll ensure that your website will look great in all modern browsers and devices. I'll even make sure your new site degrades gracefully for the folks who use outdated versions of Internet Explorer.
Responsive design - With the ever growing number of screen sizes out there, it's important that your website layout is flexible. Responsive design means that your layout will change depending on the screen size, ensuring it looks great on a mobile phone, tablet or a desktop computer.
Dynamic Web - If you need a website that you can constantly update, I can build your site based on Wordpress. This PHP based solution will allow you to add content to your site via a user-friendly interface.
Reporting & Statistics - I’ll set you up with web statistics so you can keep track of how many visits you’re getting. You can then leverage this information to make informed decisions about how to make your website more effective. You'll get details like where your visitors are from, what browser and OS they are using, how they got to your website, what pages they view, how long they visited your site, and more.
On Going Support - I won’t disappear into the night after your website is launched, I offer continued support for as long as you’d like. And don’t worry, if you decide you’d like to hire your nephew to maintain the website, my code will be marked up with clear instructions and valid CSS/HTML so that anyone can edit it.
