My name is Jan Simmala and I am currently residing in Milwaukee, WI. I developed passion for
storytelling through illustration since a young age and became interested in building websites
during high school. With every design, whether web, print, logos, or paintings, I always try
to guide a viewers’ eyes through a story. In college my infatuation for strategic design led me
to pick up online marketing tactics and back-end programing in order to yield higher ranks in
search engines, to learn more about dynamic web development and database management.
All of these allow me to build effective and efficient websites.
Other than designing and programing, I enjoy painting and outdoor activities, such as hiking and rafting.
How I work
First I research and gather your project’s objectives, audience, preferences, market, competitors (if applicable) and information for presentation.
Then I create rough sketches, transfer them in presentable formats and present to you a few variations of the design projecting your vision.
You will get to review and make changes to the design. I will also explain to you why I present things a certain way and answer your questions to your satisfaction. For web design and development, we will discuss navigation, prototype and finalize the design before I drive into coding.
I then make changes to the design according to your critic. When I am done programming and the website looks as complete as possible, I will present to you a working website for your review before it goes live.
The design is finalized, you will get the final version in pdf format. For the website, maintaining and updating the website is just as important as launching one. Thus, I provide maintenance service for at least one year or as indicated in our discussion.
