My name is Craig Valadez, I’m a freelance website designer and Front-end Developer, and have provided my services for many companies and individuals in Northern and Southern California, and beyond…
Before devoting my time to the web, I was a carpenter over 15 years. I noticed that many of the elements of carpentry and web design were similar (although hammers and nails aren’t quite as effective on a website). I began approaching each new website using the basic ideas of a well-designed construction project. A “blueprint” if you will, is formed for each new website, ensuring that the right changes are made in the right places to maximize traffic at minimal cost.
I follow several basic rules when approaching a project. Every website needs to be user-friendly, accessible from any web browser, and optimized for the business or individual that owns it. This requires constant attention to a website’s current traffic using Google Analytics, an easy to use content management system like WordPress, and a simple yet impressive layout design using the latest graphic design tools.
Clients can range in technical proficiency, but I use familiar terms to explain each step of the web design process. Every aspect of a page can be handled by me personally, from regular content updates or minor edits and changes. There is no aspect too big or too small.
Clients use me for a professional and local approach to web design that keeps new traffic coming in—and coming back—regardless of who you’re trying to reach. Whether you’re launching your company’s first website or you’re updating a site that has been around for years, I can deliver state of the art website at an affordable price to take your small business or individual site to the next level.
