I design sites for my clients that are an expression of them and their businesses. I am proficient building sites using the WordPress platform. My clients like the WordPress site for it allows them to make changes to their own sites.
I also work on the front-end and back-end of websites. A web developer needs to be proficient in both front-end and back-end languages and frameworks, as well as working with servers, networks and hosting environments. At one of my contract jobs, I work as a web developer and Graphic Designer. I maintain and update the front-end and the back-end of their very large site using HTM/CSS, PHP, Java Script and also work with their database.
“Content precedes design. Design in the absence of content is not design, it’s decoration.” – Jeffrey Zeldman (author of ‘Designing with Web Standards’)
