I LOVE WEB &
DESIGN IS LIFE
I’m Heather, a designer, developer, builder, maker, dreamer… but really I’m just a creative with a knack for solving problems. I enjoy the process of building beautiful intuitive websites that consider function, user experience, accessibility and strategy. Feel free to reach out to discuss tech, trends or projects you think I would find interesting.
IT’S LIKE ROLLER DERBY OR LIKE BUILDING A HOUSE
WEB DEVELOPMENT FEEDS MY CURIOSITY
I started seeing code as another tool available to me as I was finishing my design degree and my hunger for more led to online training, internships, word camps and acquiring full time employment. Development became my vehicle for presenting fantastic design. The truth is I love analogies, learning skills and building. Code is the means to an end.
I enjoy website development and building html structures that I style with css and fill with data. It incorporates my love for design as well as building clean structured code architecture. Accessibility, standardized web practices and future of the web are a few of my favorite topics.
WordPress is a powerful CMS that I enjoy building and tailoring to suit the needs and purpose of the website owner. I craft customized intuitive, user-friendly dashboards in additional to creating beautiful and easy to navigate websites.
DESIGN IS A LIFESTYLE
I’VE GOT TOOLS
I approach design as a lifestyle, it’s the thoughts and decisions made that can shape and become influences in our daily life. I learned the core principles of design, the thought process as well as how to use creative software from highly skilled professors, coworkers and mentors. I apply the process towards other activities like home renovation, 3D printing, laser cutting, CNC, wood working and DIY projects.
