Philosophy

Simple &

Easy

 

I work diligently to create designs and interfaces that are simple to use & easy to understand. I strip away all unnecessary clutter to provide a streamlined design that users can pick up and understand instantly.

Designed with ease-of-use in mind, I’m constantly thinking about tweaks I can make to allow users a better experience. Managing a logical flow and progression through content, I make websites easy for the average viewer without sacrificing amazing visuals.

 

Strong but

Elegant

I’m a firm believer in ‘less is more’ when it comes to design. I create clean, strong and elegant designs.

With my understanding of typography and visual design, I find the happy medium between too little and too much without ever forgetting to make an element look astounding.

 

Built For

Perfection

I understand the importance in making something perfect. I work meticulously putting every last pixel exactly where it should be.

My work is beautiful both inside and out. I create code that is easy for anyone to read and follow so that updating later is straightforward.

Designing for major browsers with valid code and cutting-edge techniques, my work looks great on just about any device.

 
Personal

Hi I’m Chris, a 21-Year-Old Web Developer from Northern Vermont. As I’m sure you've noticed, I love Clean & Efficient design.

I like to let elements speak for themselves, whether that be an image, typeface or heading. I remove all excess clutter to bring a streamlined, beautiful product.

In my spare time I dabble in photography, play video games, follow Apple news, listen to podcasts and work with video.

My photographs and video work fall in line with my design sense. My work often focuses on finding the elegance & beauty in my subjects without allowing any distractions.

Anyway, I’m a pretty friendly guy; feel free to get in touch with me! I love talking design, discussing Breaking Bad, drinking good craft beer and meeting new people.

Professional

I’m a student studying Web Design & Development at the Pennsylvania College of Technology. After this semester (Spring '14), I’ll have a Bachelors of Science Degree in Web and Interactive Media.

Over my 4 years of studying Web Design, I’ve learned the in’s and out’s of both design & development.

With a firm understanding of today's software, I can more than hold my own in Photoshop, Illustrator, Fireworks, Dreamweaver (though I prefer using Sublime) and both Final Cut 7 & 10. I have a keen eye for minimalistic design and really enjoy bringing my designs up through development.

With a my strong understanding of today’s web technologies, I am just as qualified to design a site, as I am to develop it. I’m experienced with HTML, CSS, Sass, PHP, MySQL, WordPress, Javascript, jQuery, ASP.NET and Responsive Design.
