I'm Brooks.

I’m a perfectionist, and I’m obsessed with design. Being both creative and technically skilled, I love web design for being a perfect blend of them both. I’m a digital media graduate but I’m primarily self taught. I began in high school, where I discovered Photoshop, programming and design. I fell in love with web design in college and I’ve been doing it ever since.

At heart, I’m an artist and a geek. I’m a music nerd, vinyl collector and PC builder.  I love making 3D designs in my spare time with Blender. Even when I’m not working with a client, I’m always creating something.

What I Do.

I’m a web and graphic designer. Basically, I design great looking, responsive websites that are search engine friendly, as well as web content. This includes things like banners, infographics, charts and other images that can accompany websites.

I specialize in making designs come to life through Wordpress, though I can work with HTML and CSS as well. With Wordpress I can deliver a website to you that’s ready to launch as soon as possible and easy for you to make changes to without having to hire anyone else.

Having a great website should attract visitors and – more importantly- encourage them to stay on your site, increasing sales and interactions.

Here are some specific things I can do.

My Process.

1. Research and Inspiration

Initial planning stage; set goals, research company background & competitors.

Look somewhere like Pinterest and create mood boards, inspiration maps.

2. Drafting

Sketching, and then wireframing. Also flow charts, sitemaps, etc. when applicable.

Here I should also have an idea of what I’m gonna use to make the project.

3. Creating

The most fun stage. Create and color designs. If it’s a web project, bring designs to life in HTML & CSS or Wordpress.

4. Refining

The final stage(s). Refining the design until I and the client are satisfied, and perfecting it. Sometimes the longest step, sometimes the shortest.

5. Delivery and Payment

Once the client is satisfied and the project is complete, I deliver all necessary files. This includes PSDs and image files, code, style guides, and other important parts of the project. After I’m paid, the project is officially complete.
