Service Description

I take great pride in producing effective web design with your user in mind. My specialty is wireframing website redesigns and new site launches. I can quickly produce lo-fi wireframes to sketch out initial ideas for presentations or put together a fully interactive prototype with complete notation that you can take right to development. I'll also work with you extensively on revisions and recommendations until you have a layout you're satisfied with. I love the wireframing process because not only is it creative, it's also highly collaborative.

Check out my work at BradKnutson.com.

**Enjoy the look of vintage photography? I also dabble in classic film photography and have done some work with weddings, engagement photos and band shots.
If you're in the Chicago area I can arrange for a classic photo shoot and provide you with both authentic hand-made darkroom prints and/or digital files scanned from negatives.

Cheers,

Brad
