GIGABUG Web Design

What I love doing.

Designing and front-end developing innovative and beautiful user interfaces, responsive HTML 5 / CSS 3 websites, mobile and web applications with a keen eye on UX. Designing graphics and icons. Designing, developing and deploying complex e-commerce, social media, or business websites on content management systems (CMS) like Joomla, Drupal and WordPress and custom SharePoint solutions.

SharePoint Solutions

Microsoft SharePoint has become almost a de facto standard for providing document &file management, collaboration, social networks, extranet, enterprise search, and business intelligence on major company and government intranets. It also has system integration, process integration, and workflow automation capabilities and encompasses almost seamless integration with Microsoft Office products. I use my skills as a Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist (MCTS) in SharePoint Applications Development and years of SharePoint Developer &Administrator experience to enable your dream SharePoint solutions become a reality.

UI UX Design and Front-End Engineering

From pixel perfect user interface design and experience (UI/UX) and remarkable theming to custom graphics and logo's I integrate user centered designs, workflows and great user experience into everything I do. Keeping a keen eye on current trends, optimizations and branding of your website or application to meet your businesses specific needs.

Web Design and Development

From simple Business Card / Personal and Informational Sites, to highly complex Content Management Based solutions such as e-Commerce and Social Media Sites, I have the tools and skills necessary to make your dream a reality. All sites are designed mobile first and are cross browser compatible and responsive meaning they also become an on-the-go solution using technologies like HTML 5, CSS 3 and the latest JavaScript libraries to ensure your mobile visitors never miss a thing.

Rocket Science

I have been accused of being a sort of UI / Web / SP rocket scientist, I can neither confirm nor deny that fact. I do however always love a challenge, and can deliver solutions to your problems, business processes, UI & UX and other technology challenges. I also have skills in SEO, Analytics, Wire Framing, Testing, Adobe Creative Suite, Web Hosting, LAMP & WAMP Stack deployment & administration, IIS, Information Assurance, INFOSEC, Policy Development and research, research and more research.

This is how I do it.

UI/UX

Profound Research and identification of Problems, Tasks, Personas and Workflows. Usability Testing, Prototyping, Mock-ups, Heuristics, Evaluations / Roundtables with Peers, Clients and Users with an implementation of latest UI trends.

Hard Work

I'm not a 80 hour a week guy, but if I must, I will do what it takes to get the job done. I get up early and get my work in before most people open their eyes each morning. I work hard but also like to have my time out for things like kayak fishing, and beers with friends.

Collaboration

Working closely and communicating effectively with clients and peers to get tasks done efficiently, correctly and on schedule. Always a team player, it sometimes takes that one piece of a critical discussion to create something spectacular.

Responsive Design

Mobile First Development. Starting with what nearly everyone has in their pocket all the way to 4k desktop monitors. Responsive design means your website or application works on all web enabled devices and looks awesome.

My Skills

Always learning, always improving...

I don't know it all, but I am always researching, learning and making myself a better person through constantly trying out new technologies and gaining wisdom from my successes and failures.

About Myself and Gigabug.

Gigabug was founded in late 2001 with the intent to bring the best of the web and hosting to my local community, this private business does Hosting and Web Design for various customers, with an eye on keeping costs low. This all started while I was still in the U.S. Army as an Airborne Infantryman (1998-2006) and having "some" skills to create my Company's first website, then others needed websites and so it began and “Gigabug” was created as my online design persona. In 2006 I moved to Sharm el Sheikh Egypt and started full-time work as a freelancer, and was picked up as the IT Manager and Director of Digital Operations for the largest casino in the Middle East, all the while continually creating products as a side job. To this day, I have continued to create state of the art websites for DoD, other Government Agencies, and Private Companies. I am now doing applications development and complete User Interface, User Experience Design and Development for the DoD as a contractor.
