Welcome to my web site. I have been a graphic designer for the past eleven years. I have a BFA in graphic design with a minor in business.
I enjoy technology and the computer, but do not confuse me for a programmer! I am a graphic designer through and through, with experience in print and web design. However, I think to be a good designer, you must understand your medium so that you can utilize all the options available to you. I love learning and expanding my skills. One of my latest crazes is CSS layout.
Also known as “standards compliance on the web”, CSS layout optimizes your HTML to approximately 1/3 the size of old school HTML and lends itself to devices such as PDA’s and web phones without extra code. It also helps separate design from content and functionality, making it much easier to update and maintain. Do you know how to tell if a site is NOT standards compliant? Many designers think they know CSS, but miss the boat entirely. Your biggest clue is, if tables are being used for page layout, core benefits of CSS are being missed, and probably much more.
