Freelance Designer

for web and print

My business is building your brand with print and web design that intrigues, informs and inspires people to invest in your vision. 

About IDEAfolder

IDEAfolder is a small multidisciplinary design and development operation located near Houston Texas. While pursuing my education in graphic design at the Art Institute of Houston, I began my journey in interactive media and print design as an intern for a small design studio. Now, 18 years later, I have filled the roles of graphic designer, web/multimedia designer and creative director for firms in and around the Houston Area. My work has won numerous design awards and was the 2005 recipient of the Bay Area Houston Designer of the Year Image Award. I’m now a full-time freelance graphic designer and have a hand in creating everything from web sites and application UI to print advertising, identity design and annual report creation. Welcome to my website.

My Style

Simple, usable and flexible design is my passion. Every project is meticulously thought about before during and especially after its completion. When a client project is delivered, it’s not just “well, that’s done … what’s next?” I truly care about the products I produce and feel a sense of ownership with them. So even after that final invoice is paid, your project is continually revisited. I’ve got your back.

Web

Website Design

Design is all about delivering a clear and direct message; a well designed web site should intrigue, inform and then inspire potential customers to invest in your products or service.

My process is simple:

  1. Planning and resource gathering. I have to learn about your company before I can design for it.
  2. Website design mockups, prototyping and flow charts.
  3. Using the approved design concepts, I prepare your website graphics and write the code that holds it all together.
  4. Once it’s standing on its own, I teach it how walk and eventually how to run.
  5. Finally, I launch it! With your approval, of course.

On average, I need about one week to complete presentable design compositions. Specifically, it takes about two days to gather the information I need in order to produce successful designs. Then it’s another three to four days in design. Of course, the website’s complexity is always a factor, but deliverable timelines and schedules are provided during the planning phase.

Examples:

  • Dynamic Website Design
  • CMS Management & Development
  • WordPress Template Design
  • WordPress Website Conversions
  • Specialized Website & Application Hosting
  • Adobe Flash Website & Application Design
  • Website Planning & Prototyping

Website Development

This is the stuff under the hood. I build your site using HTML, CSS (SaaS), Javascript, PHP and MySQL. A combination of the mentioned is based on the type of site being built.

The duration of this phase is generally the longest because it’s relative to the amount of content your website holds. I generally try limiting this phase to a maximum of four weeks. However, in my experience, the more a client participates, the faster it goes.
