Read about my process.
During my time at RightBrain Networks I designed the graphics, interface and page layout for the Center for Childbearing Year LLC's new website, Michigan Doula Connection.org. This website connects expecting women with doula's from their area. I designed the front-end based on client requirements and wrote the CSS. Jamie Begin wrote all of the back-end coding including a custom made Wordpress plugin for allowing the registration and locating of doulas. Harriette Hartigan provided the impeccable photography.
Designer Gomar2 employed development assistance for the re-launch of his portfolio site, gomar2.com. We used Django as a framework to establish the connection between database driven content and fluid URL/page system. Using Gomar's pre-determined brand as a design guide, the site consists of HTML, CSS and some Python over a MySQL database and Apache server.

A community site for Ypsilanti, Michigan based basketball league Common Bond Basketball; we utilized the open source development framework, "Joomla". Responsibilities on this project included CSS, HTML and some PHP configuration. This is my first public site which includes a registration function as well as event calendar and payment system, all implemented through Joomla's open source extension library.

What is process work? Process work allows us to really wrap our heads around what it is that you need. It is a systemic method to distill down ideas and get the best work possible out of myself.
Graphic design may not be as expensive as you may think. Each design is unique and cost varies. I am a hard worker, and I love what I do so you only end up paying for what the work is worth.
Web standards are important because they ensure a long lasting lifetime of your website. Internet browsers update frequently as they improve, and the World Wide Web Consortium makes sure that web code designed to format, displays correctly in every browser that is built to standard as they almost all are now and into the future.
Work that unfolds according to a process is how projects become successful. We brainstorm, research then make the decisions that will determine the outcome of the project's details (in the form of a style guide). No idea or decision is made that would distrupt the style guide is allowed after a certain point, ensuring that the project maintains the consistency of a credible brand.
