Web Design and Development

I design and develop cool things for the web.

Hi, my name is Nick Bennett and I'm a web designer and developer from Folsom, California. With backgrounds in both graphic design and web design, I create digital experiences that are clean, innovative, compliant and most important — effective. I approach all my projects with desktop, mobile or tablet device compatibility in mind. The sites and pages I build will always reach the customer wherever they are, when they're most interested.

I have spent 11 years working in a variety of industries, including print, outdoor media, web design and web development. I have several years of experience working in the ecommerce industry. I have skills in designing components for a variety of ecommerce stores, building email campaigns, designing banner advertisements, creating content/site maps, wireframes, mockups and prototypes. My projects are approached with research on the latest in design practices, as well as the most compliant standards in coding and SEO techniques.
