Adobe Creative Suite, HTML and CSS, Javascript, PHP, CMS and Blogs

Working with Design RL means you'll get the one on one attention you've been looking for on your project. You'll also get the skills of all my resources to deliver a quality site quickly and efficiently.

Web Design - I have been designing websites for several years now primarily with photoshop. A lot of my design elements are based on web 2.0 pieces to maintain clean and modular websites. I enjoy breaking the borders to make grids dynamic as well as using grunge elements (photographed elements such as binder paper or post its), and subtle textures. I have designed other web elements such as video players and widgets as well as brochures, icons, business cards, logos, and more.

XHTML / CSS - In my years as a web designer I have refined my skills in XHTML and CSS. I strive to code valid markup that is cross-browser compatible. While I code almost entirely in tabless CSS, I keep efficiency and practicality in mind, so I will not hesitate to use a table for what they were designed for.

Flash / Actionscript - Flash is an extremely versatile program that is only restricted by the imagination. I have produced several dynamic flash sites as well as a very detailed video demo. Using actionscript I coded a navigational playback system with volume, chapter, and menu control from scratch. I have also used my flash skills to do edits for large companies such as Callaway Golf and Mikasa Sports.

Javascript / AJAX - Javascript and AJAX have the power to make web pages more dynamic and should be used to improve the user's experience. With the help of existing libraries such as MooTools or YUI, I have implemented scripts such as form validation, tabs, and animated sliders.

CMS and Blogs - My weapons of choice here are ModX and Wordpress. These tools allow for clients to easily and quickly make simple updates to their websites.
