I have training in Web Design, Graphic Design, Industrial Design and Fine Arts. I've learned the important of not just making aesthetically pleasing designs, but also the importance of the user, in this instance, the web user and potential clients. I understand how vital an intuitive interface can be. Bringing customers you your website and making their experience a pleasant one, is a major priority for me.
