| UI and UIX professional
Hello. My name is Ryan Matsudaira. I am a web designer that has been active in the online industry for over 10 years. I specialize in creating clean and crisp websites, email templates, and Social Media assets. I also act as an online media consultant. In my past experience, I have helped raise hundreds of thousands of dollars in revenue for American Humane Association through email campaigns, websites, and social media networks. Web design is a passion of mine. I have a philosophy that the Web should be clean, organized, and prosperous. I like to feel that I might make a difference. Knowing that I help make a difference is what keeps me going to the office every day. I imagine that it also helps me to wake up to the Colorado Rocky Mountains every day as well, I'm sure. Please take a look around and then let's setup a time to meet. I look forward to working with you.
Syntax, symantics, usability, responsive, S.E.O., accessibility, XHTML, CSS, jQuery. Scary sounding words for the average Joe. For me, those words are my English. I speak them, and I speak them well. I don't simply speak them though, I take them and turn them into a work of art that the people of the world can experience on the Internet. Whether it's a personal blog or a small business website - I can make it all happen just for you. Every design I make uses the latest technology, built using the latest software. Extreme care is taken right down to the last pixel, to make sure my work looks hot on all the major browsers. Heck, I've even been known to perform some necromancy here and there for those few individuals stuck on Internet Explorer 6 and 7 (is this site looking broken and square? Time to upgrade!). I love working with Wordpress. They make my websites function beautifully. I can also work with Joomla! if that's your fancy.
Traditional websites are fine and dandy - but not every person on the Internet uses a traditional computer. Every day, mobile usage climbs around the world. To help balance this growth, enlarge a client base, and provide the best visitor experience possible - it's wise to have a website designed just for mobile devices. I can take most any website and convert it into a mobile-friendly experience. I can make a website look excellent on an iPhone, iPad, or one of the many Android devices in the market. I can design a mobile site that looks great, loads small, but plays large. You can have a mobile site without sacrificing your brand. I can make it happen.
We all know that websites get the most attention on the Internet. However, did you know that you can have email campaigns that look just as good as traditional websites? Totally! A good email campaign is the backbone of many online-based businesses and organizations. It's surprising how many of these emails that we all get sent on a daily basis almost always look like complete garbage. Don't let your email campaign be garbage any longer! I have a lot of experience creating clean and beautiful email templates. I can't even give a number of how many I have created - it's been that much. I'm as comfortable in email design as I am in traditional website design. That's a great deal!
Let's face it. Businesses have taken over social media. An industry that started out as something just for "kids" was quickly transformed into a money-driving powerhouse. I have been fortunate enough to get a piece of this action - and you can to! I have experience building out Facebook pages. Thanks to the new flexibility of Facebook, it's now possible to create entire micro-sites inside of a page. This is something I have found challenging, rewarding, and even fun to create. You can visit my own personal Facebook page to get a sample of what I am able to do. It's not all about Facebook though. If you use Twitter and would like a slightly more custom look and feel - I have experience creating beautiful Twitter backgrounds.
Websites, blogs, emails, Facebook pages, Twitter backgrounds and even some pamphlets. I have a large array of projects that I have worked on in various sections of the online media world. I am comfortable in most all avenues of design, and equally efficient in each. I trust you will find some of the following samples more than enticing and adequate for your project needs.
Thank you for taking the plunge. I assure you that what I bring to your table will be invaluable. I strive to be an asset to every establishment or client that I work for. The next step from here is to please choose a contact form depending on your purpose in contacting me.
