Design Projects

Design is a broad term. I specialize in efficient design..

What is efficient design?

As an entrepreneur you have to make many decisions. With each decision, there is a cost in time, money and/or resources. Over the years I have found that it has been prudent to understand at least a little bit about a lot of things so I could be more effective in my business analysis. One of the most common time sucks is creative design of any aspect.

As a result of not getting what I need from web, print, media and logo designers for myself or clients over the years, I took it upon myself to learn design basics for the purpose of being able to mock up a website or a corporate logo on the fly with out needing to go through a designer to get the initial job done.

I call this “efficient design” and it is skills like this that have helped me to become a well rounded consultant and liaison to designers. Web designers can no longer hide behind the work because I deeply understand what is involved. This allows me to hold their feet to the fire and make sure I am getting the highest and most efficient quality of work from any contracted designer.

Above are a couple of designs and or logos I have created myself that clients ending up keeping with out the need of contracting work out.

Web Design / Development

Web Design / Development Projects

I don’t claim to be a Web Developer, but I can develop websites

Much like my approach to efficient graphic design, my web developing capabilities came from hitting a cog with web developers when trying to complete and deliver projects. It was so time  consuming and expensive to outsource small projects so I learned how to code to the degree where I could offer clients simple out of the box web sites specializing  in eCommerce. By doing this I was able to expand my horizons as a consultant and gain some insight in to the web development projects and what it takes to complete them

The areas where I have completed the most work and where I possess a commanding knowledge of front end design to back data base architecting are on the following platforms and affiliates:

  • WordPress:
    • Template and Plugin Design and customization
    • WooCommerce
    • Stripe
