Welcome to Velvet Elvis Design

WARNING: This site and portfolio are woefully out-of-date, but who has time for their own work?

You want it all, and you want it now. You're going to need someone who can deliver high-quality work on time. I'm confident I bring to the table a package of experience, skill, and education that will be an invaluable asset to your Marketing team. I've had to wear a lot of hats in my sixteen years of real-world experience as a Web Designer and over twenty-seven years as a Graphic Designer, whether it's updating or adapting existing print or web materials, making things "pop" and "flash", or taking projects from concept to completion, I'm the web & print designer/front-end developer who can do it all! I can even write your content.

I have the practical experience in a fast-paced marketing environment building flash ads and banners, maintaining corporate web sites, building new sites from scratch, designing original graphics and logos, editing digital video and photography, and copy writing. As a contract designer I have to be prepared for whatever software a client might use. As a Mac professional, I'm fluent with Photoshop, Illustrator, Flash, Acrobat, QuarkXPress, Dreamweaver, Pagespinner, coding for the web (xHTML, CSS, SEO and CMS); and I have a better than working knowledge of JavaScript, PHP, SQL, AJAX, Action Script, After Effects, Final Cut Pro, InDesign, Microsoft Word, Powerpoint and Excel. I pick up new software skills easily and like to stay current with industry standards. I am now officially a front end developer as well.

Communicating with management and project leaders is a necessary "survival skill" for getting the job done. I've honed those skills as a corporate senior lead web designer/front-end developer working directly with CEOs and upper management, and as a freelance designer and developer working with a client's decision makers, and co-ordinating the efforts of teams assembled across departments or organizations. After decades in the design and web business I've "been there, done that," and that means I can do it for you. Please take a look at my resumé or portfolio for more details or check out the testimonials page.
