Melding Web with Design
My name is Jeremy Parks and I’ve been designing websites and print pieces for over two decades, first starting at my hometown newspaper. Though a born artist, Computer Science was my focus in college and soon after began my career in graphic design and web development. I have 15+ years of agency experience and have owned two marketing companies. This gives you branding and design know-how you can trust. With over 100 sites under my belt and extensive Adobe design knowledge, I can help you or your team with your design project. You can see my design portfolio here.
In 2005, WordPress and its blog features, themes, plugins, and more, changed the way I build sites. Soon I became an advocate for this flexibile and powerful CMS (content management system) platform. Now used on 30% off all sites worldwide, it allows clients to easily edit their own websites with powerful tools. If building your site outside of WordPress I suggest you do a little research as this platform is the perfect fit for most website needs. Interested in E-commerce? WordPress powers more carts than any platform in the world.
Adobe Creative Cloud is my best friend when creating designs for print, social, email campaigns, and sites. Prior to web banners and animated emails, I used Adobe for traditional print pieces like magazine and newspapers ads, brochures, flyers, postcards, retail packaging, and more. I’ve been mastering Adobe for more than 20 years.
Originally a Nebraska native, I was always drawn to the mountains in Colorado, and I later moved to to Fort Collins, CO in 2000. When I’m not holding a mouse, I focus on my family, good food & beer, cycling, my old Chevy truck, and tinkering around the house. When straying from home, my hobby is often helping small businesses with their branding and sales, something I did for years with my inbound marketing company Your Imprint. Bottom line, I have the background and proven agency experience but lower design rates and the help and reliability of a partner.
