Interview

Please tell us a bit about your background. How did you get started in design?

I started toying with web graphics on my old AngelFire website (remember those?) before attending school for Digital Media. After college, I started working immediately for a Manhattan Business Consultant Firm, handling their web & graphic design work.

How long have you been with your company?

I've been with my SmartNet Solutions since 2004, although the company has been established since 1998.

Are you self taught or did you attend school for your industry?

I received an AFA Degree in Digital Media to get my feet wet. Beyond that, it's all self taught as the technology in this industry changes daily!

What web browser do you use?

Primarily Chrome & FireFox. Internet Explorer & Safari for testing.

What social media do you use for work and play? Do you have a favorite?

Facebook, Twitter & Google+...all mainly for work.

What is your favorite thing about the type of work you do?

Knowing that a client is using something that I created for them (web design, logo design, banner) to make a name for themselves in their respective industry and most importantly, be part of their success story.

What advice would you give to someone looking to get into the web design field?

"This is just the beginning". With programming languages expanding rapidly, so does your knowledge.

Beyond that, "Have a working knowledge of as many programming languages as you can". Knowing just how to design a website won't cut it these days.

What`s your favorite development language and why?

CSS3 & HTML5. I'm amazed at what these two have brought to the table, or rather; the div (developer joke...)

If you could only use one language, which one would it be?

HTML5...and then I'd request it nicely to use CSS3 with it.

Who is your typical client at the moment and what types of projects are you working on?

Law Firms & Alcoholic Beverage Products. The two cross paths a lot.

What advice would you give a client in order to prepare for a new project?

Start from the business plan and then go forward. Make sure that your services, product or idea is covered legally on every end. From your company name, to the last signature on your corporate books.

Do you use a CRM (Customer Relationship Manager) or any type of project management or proposal software?

ProWorkFlow

What is your standard hourly rate?

$100.00

Do you have a minimum budget for a new client?

$2,500
