John Alex Jacob » Freelance Web Design

About Me

My name is John Alex Jacob and I'm a freelance designer with a passion for beautifully crafted websites. I love designing clean, easy to use websites that will help your business thrive on the internet.

I have over 5 years of experience and during this time I've worked with some amazing clients from all over the world. I'm also a very easy guy to work with, so if you would like to talk about a project, contact me.

I've always been into everything involving creativity, but my design adventure started in 2004 when I got my hands on a copy of Photoshop. I started playing in it and I was instantly hooked.

Seven years later I'm still very passionate about what I do. I'm always willing to go the extra mile to build an amazing website that will help you stand out from all your other competitors.

This website was created with a lot of TLC on an iMac, using Photoshop CS5, Espresso and Transmit. It's built using HTML5, CSS3 and Wordpress and it's hosted by the über-awesome™ MediaTemple.

When I'm not working, I'm busy playing on my Xbox, fighting the horde in World of Warcraft, taking photos, watching space documentaries and experimenting with CSS3 and HTML5.

How I Work

Plan

This is an important step in a project. I work closely with all my clients and plan ahead to make sure everything gets done on time. Effective communication between us is key in building a good website.

Design

Once the planning is done, my hamsters will start churning out sketches, wireframes, grayscale layouts like there's no tomorrow. Photoshop and Illustrator will help my furry friends in their endeavour.

Develop

HTML5? jQuery? And what's this CSS3 nonsense that everyone is talking about? While sticking to what we already use might seem like a good idea, embracing new, exciting technologies is what drives innovation forward.

Launch

And now for the moment we've been waiting for - we found life on Mars! Errr no - Launch. After everything is tested and approved, your new, shiny website will get its first look of the big, bad Internet.
