” You Have To Know What You Want
Before You Can Build It”
With the launch of DSC79 as a leading resource on all things web design, I wanted to highlight a few guiding principles for the project. As I began preparing to gather the assets for the project, I quickly realized what the calls to action needed to be:
High level proficiency using front end frameworks: Bootstrap, Node.JS & WordPress
WordPress core developer implementing custom CMS projects
Version control mastery using Git/Github for contributing code within a team environment
Adobe CC designer implementing web graphics, iconography and responsive web design
Photoshop, Illustrator, Muse, InDesign & Dreamweaver user experience designer
These benchmarks for the site needed to correspond and reflect today’s fast paced technology ecosystem while showcasing my skills as a web designer. Illustrating my professional development as a creative designer.
I am an experienced web designer with skills in full stack development & UX software design. I have worked on implementing fully functional design prototypes into responsive web sites with a corresponding back end dashboard. Including developing custom CMS projects using WordPress to fit specific client side specifications. As a web designer/full stack developer with over 10 years of design experience I have participated in several re-design legacy code base projects while implementing semantic HTML5/CSS3/Bootstrap ready sites and web apps using version control to track code changes within a team environment.
As a user experience web designer, I have worked on several dashboard solutions including developing custom CMS, branding and responsive design iconography. I am able to adapt to any team environment and quickly get up to speed. Whether as a web designer/ full stack developer or project lead. My hybrid skills in today’s fast pace tech ecosystem is a valuable asset I bring to any company’s culture. While adapting to changes in technology and always eager to learn new skills to fit a changing landscape are core values I am passionate and care about.
My skills as a full stack web developer working with WordPress range between creating fully customizable backend dashboards to developing core plugins. I have been developing with WordPress, PHP, MySQL, HTML & CSS for over a decade. Working within the data analytics education space, I created and maintained over 100 WP related projects. Ranging between design, development, Q/A and server side scaling within a multisite network environment. While designing clear and responsive user experiences for non technical users which allowed team members the ability to use each content management system with ease and fluidity.
