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.

Working with Kirk is a seamless experience. He immediately integrated with our team and has become a key player in our demanding web efforts. His promptness, attention to detail and friendly disposition has us continuously asking ourselves "what we can send him next?" Kirk is much more than a developer. He is a problem solver, providing new solutions which we are able to offer to our clients. Kirk's strong design eye has also saved us a ton of time. Something we used to find ourselves hand holding developers through. I highly recommend trying Kirk for your next project. You won't want to let him go.
