Resume/C.V.

I have been studying web design for 13 years. I have been self-taught since 1998, but I started on my Associate's degree of Science in Web Design in August 2007 and graduated in 2009. I have since then received my Bachelor's degree of Fine Arts in Web Development as well. I have extensive knowledge in database management such as PHP and MySQL, CMS such as Joomla and Wordpress, and design programs such as those within the Adobe Creative Suite 3.

My work is based on two main areas: graphic design (mostly corporate identity, brochures, logos, etc.) and website design (simple to complex websites).

I guarantee the quality of my work and your satisfaction.

Service Description
I believe that great designs come from a collaboration between the client and the web designer. I am proficient in Dreamweaver, Photoshop, and Illustrator CS3, FrontPage 2000, CSS, and XHTML. I verify my coding as XHTML Strict, but am very flexible if you need it. Any services not listed, just ask.

I have been studying web design for 13 years and have been self-taught until August 2007, when I began web design courses. I completed my Associate's degree in Web Design in 2009 and followed with my Bachelor's degree in Web Development with graduation in 2011. I have a very flexible schedule, but I like to establish clear lines of communication from the beginning of the project.

What differentiates me from what other providers offer is the fact that I am completely dedicated to my work. I will work las long as needed to ensure the job is done properly. I put in the effort up front to understand the customer's vision and set appropriate milestones and provide the customer with weekly progress reports to ensure we can efficiently coordinate every step of the project.

I have a few mock-ups of websites i have created available in my portfolio.

My core beliefs are:

- Always take pride in my work.
- Always listen to the clients' needs first.
- Always provide the best quality service and design for the customer.
- Alway provide a 100% satisfaction guarantee.

Payment Terms
I like to set up clear lines of communication from the beginning of the project. An initial e-mail helps to ensure that we are on the same page with reference to the project scope and approach.

After this initial meeting, I will establish clear milestones and dates on which you can expect to receive deliverables. I will add these milestones to the project on Elance and send for your approval. I keep my clients up-to-date with weekly status reports so you always know where I am in the process.

I will provide guidance and support throughout the process if you have any questions or concerns. I will provide initial drafts and proofs for your review and solicit your feedback along the way. I will continue to develop the product until you are 100% satisfied.

- I require all funds to be deposited in Escrow at Elance.
- The first milestone will be a 10% up-front deposit that must be funded before I can begin.
- The remaining payments will be tied to specific deliverables, with the final 25% due on project completion.

*Payment terms are valid unless otherwise designated in a proposal or agreement between myself and the client in question.
