About Me

Tito knows.

I am an established web designer and programmer, graphic designer and IT consultant located in Chico, CA serving my freelance expertise to the northern California region and beyond. Originally focusing on only print media, I have spent the last few years expanding my skills into the realm of web design and programming. Through learning what makes web design “look” good and “easy”, I’ve also become proficient in the coding side of web design. My understanding and skills in technologies such as PHP, MySQL, JavaScript and jQuery (and of course, HTML and CSS) allow me to work with other designers and coders and “speak the lingo” and solve design/code conflicts quickly.

A good designer has to design for the future and your customers. Your website isn’t just about now, its about how your going to use it in the future and what visitors are going to see and think about your company. How easy is it for your customers to get the information they are searching for, or the product they need? I blend print design (everything from tshirts to flyers) and web design/coding to truly offer you full service web design, marketing and IT consulting.

A good designer has to understand people. They have to understand your target market and how they will likely respond to your advertising. They have to understand cost/benefit of the production and execution of the marketing plan. A good designer is also an excellent marketer and understands the needs of the business, not just what is a “good design.” I share a passion for the blend between function and form.

 

I wanted to take the time to tell you how truly talented you are and how appreciative I am for the patience and diligence you show in your work.  I know I come at you with last minute jumbles of information and heap a ton of only partial information on you in sporadic phone calls.  You always come through with exceptional quality and speed.  I am shocked when I look at some of your 1st drafts and have no or very little changes to mention, I am a VERY picky person.  I am (I could give you a ton of people to back me up on this) a very difficult person for most people to work with, but you make it seem easy and I just wanted to let you know that I appreciate your work and effort.
