Hello, my name is Carrie and I've always been drawn to design. I first learned to write code to make a web card (one page website) for a sick friend and attached a guest book so people around the World could sign it back in 2001. The more I learned the more I wanted to learn and I've always kept up with the latest codes. I made a few websites over a decade ago and my clients told me their sales had quadrupled. I’m so glad I have time now to do this again.
Long before that, in the early '90s, I took a two semester floral design class at Truckee Meadows Community Collage in Reno, NV and got my floral design certificate with a 4.0 GPA. That's where I learned about color schemes, unity, positive and negative space, etc. I still use today.
For coding I use
Notepad Atom (just switched) then check for errors and/or typos using the W3C's Validation Services and Google's Developer Tools. I never use premade templates, all websites are custom made. For graphics I use Inkscape and Photoshop CS2. I also use Photoshop to adjust photos.
I'm a perfectionist with probably a touch of OCD, but those are good qualities for a web designer / web developer. I'll make sure your website works beautifully for years to come. I take great pride in this as I know you'll be very proud of your new website.
Thank you for your interest!
