My Resume
Skills
Adobe Illustrator

Adobe Illustrator is the industry standard design app that lets you capture your creative vision with shapes, color, effects, and typography. I have many years of professional expierence with illustrator and can help bring any idea to life.

JavaScript

JavaScript is the bread and butter that makes all of our web pages interactive. JavaScript allows me to implement dynamic features on web pages that cannot be done with only HTML and CSS.

HTML

The bones of any website. You can't build a building without a solid frame. HTML stands for Hyper Text Markup Language and is the language for describing the structure of Web pages.

CSS

CSS stands for Cascading Style Sheets and is used to style and layout web pages and provide Web developers with a standard way to define, apply, and manage sets of style characteristics

Sass

Sass stands for syntactically awesome style sheets is a CSS preprocessor that enables you to use things like variables, nested rules, inline imports and more. It also helps to keep things organised and allows you to create style sheets faster. It's also how I designed and styled the majority of this site.

Bootstrap

Bootstrap is a CSS framework and toolkit. Developers can't use it to write programs, but because Bootstrap contains massive amounts of reusable code and website element templates, the framework can remove some of the “busy work” and significantly speed up the process of building a website.

Adobe Photoshop

Photoshop is an image creation, graphic design and photo editing software developed by Adobe. The software provides many image editing features for pixel-based images, raster graphics and vector graphics. I have well over a decade of expierence with Photoshop and it is one of my favorite programs of all time.

Git / Github

Open-source version control system used to handle small to very large projects efficiently. Git is used for tracking changes in the source code, enabling multiple developers to work together on non-linear development.

Graphic Design Principles

I use my graphic design skills create visual concepts, using computer software or by hand, to communicate ideas that inspire, inform, and captivate consumers. Developing the overall layout and production design for applications such as advertisements, brochures, magazines, and more.
