Design-savvy Website Development for Design Professionals

You design. I advise and code — including integration with a customized content management system — and provide friendly training videos. We win (including the client)!

Let me support, extend, and improve what you offer to your clients.*

I have a formal design education and have been working on the web professionally since 1999. I know a lot, am learning more all the time, and also know what I don’t know (if you know what I mean).

Content management is not a commodity, and I take great pride in Craft-ing the CMS experience to streamline site editing; client-collaborators (and their clients) love the video tutorials I create that make training a breeze and completely portable.

If we’re using a sitebuilder like Squarespace you can even hand off some design responsibilities to me. Let me “rough out” the first pass and then you can art-direct the process.

* someone told me I should point out that I don’t try to poach clients, as if I’d even think about doing that

Bio for proposals

If we’ve already discussed your project here is some bio text you can adapt for your proposal.

Kirk Roberts is a seasoned web developer who has worked in the field since 1999. In addition to being a skilled developer he brings a designer’s eye and problem-solving skills to the project, enhancing the team with usability and aesthetic guidance and integrity. Kirk is fluent with semantic html, CSS, and JavaScript, and has extensive experience working with PHP-based content management systems (CMSes) and third-party SaaS (software as a service) integrations. He is frugal by nature and solutions-focused with a mind toward the big picture. And he likes to laugh.

Kirk is, quite simply, the best developer I have ever worked with. He possesses a rare combination of design sensibilities and technical prowess that results in consistently amazing deliverables. He thinks like a designer, but he works like a developer. He knows technology, but he speaks in plain english – so I can understand what he’s talking about. He’s easy to work with and isn’t afraid to have a hard conversation. He understands deadlines and respects budgets. I know my projects are in good hands when Kirk is working on them. And I know the results will be exactly what I asked for, and oftentimes more.
