My name is Joel and I'm a designer/developer in Austin, TX.
I started my career in design at the non-profit Hope for Humans. For two years I managed and developed their existing WordPress website, designed marketing materials, crafted social media posts and planned email campaigns. After taking online development courses through Udemy, Lynda, and FreeCodeCamp where I learned programming fundamentals and UI/UX design I decided to pursue freelance projects. This challenged me in whole new ways as I built WordPress websites from the ground up, working closely with clients to achieve their vision. Overall I have a strong grasp of digital design principles, web development, UI/UX, and marketing.
My skills fall right in the middle of design and development. I love discovering and creating a solid user experience then turning that into something that can be interacted with.
I'm currently looking for UI/UX or digital/graphic design positions in Austin, TX.
