I create websites that set you apart from your competition

About Me

I'm Smokie, a front end developer (fancy word for a web designer) with a focus on user experience from Missouri, United States. I specialize in small business websites and blogs with clients all over the country, and I'm passionate about making sure your brand or message is expressed to your satisfaction. I understand the needs of both users and business owners, and I strive to make designs that satisfy them all. Check out my most recent work below, or view just my web design work, or my illustration work.

Services & Skills

Website Design

Whether you're just starting out or already have an established web presence, my 10+ years of web design experience can help your business stand out from the competition. Plus, my focus on user experience means that your customers will keep coming back.

Website Hosting

I provide inexpensive web hosting - the computer where your website lives - along with my web designs, should you need it. Why should you spend time dealing with the technical details of your website when I can handle it instead, freeing you up to run your business.

Illustration & Graphic Design

I have decades of experience in graphite (pencil) and pen drawing, and several years of digital illustration under my belt as well. I bring a unique and creative flair to all my work.
