Web design

Web design should begin and end with what users need. By using analytics and user centered design principles I can take a good page and make it great.

My web design principles:

  • Data from analytics, user testing and surveys guides the process
  • Clean designs help guide page visitors
  • Write in Plain Talk to make it easy to scan, even if the audience is full of experts on the topic
  • Know every single document, image and piece of text you own

The tools I love to use:

  • HTML and XHTML
  • CSS
  • SQL Server
  • WordPress.org and .com
  • Google Analytics
  • Crazy Egg
  • Site Improve
  • GovDelivery
  • Survey Monkey
  • Adobe Dreamweaver, InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop
  • Microsoft Office Suite (including Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Access and Publisher)
