Think. Design. Develop.
The web is my passion.
- Who Am I?
- I’m David Sparks, Skraps is my name spelled backwards. I am a lot of things. A web developer, information architect, user experience engineer and designer.
- What Do I Do?
- I’m an Information Architect/User Experience Engineer at archer>malmo in Memphis TN. I spend most of my time in the planning stages of websites now. Information Architecture documents, user testing, prototyping, sketching and things like that. I still love development and branding as well. You should Hire Me for any of your freelance needs!
- How Long Have I Been At It?
- It all started back in 1998, when i was in 9th grade. My family finally got our first computer and I absolutely had to know how to build websites. I thought it was the coolest thing I’d ever seen so I started teaching myself which included writing html tables on notebook paper in class instead of doing school work & taking them home to type them into an angel fire site to see if my code worked. Soon after I started a pretty big local music website called OurMemphis that is now defunct. That site gave me a constant stream of things to update & work on & was redesigned more times than i can remember.
- I spent much of my youth pursuing my dream to be a Musician from 2000 to 2008. Over 5 years ago I got a full time job designing & developing in house for a trade show company and fair company.
- How Do I Do It?
- I use whatever tool is needed for the project. Pen and Paper, Word, Power Point, MindMeister, Axure, Photoshop, Sublime Text 2 & Coda2. I also use WordPress as a CMS & blogging platform when it fits the job. For eCommerce sites, I work with Lemonstand.
WHAT I DO WELL & WHAT I LOVE TO DO.
- Web Sites
- I design simplistic websites focused on quality User Experiences and I develop semantic code by hand in HTML5, CSS & jQuery. I have over 14 years experience designing and developing front end websites.
- PSD SLICING
- Already have the design? Send me your PSD Files & I send you HTML & CSS files. Single pages framed out or multiple sub pages coded.
- WORDPRESS THEMES
- Hand Coded from Scratch. What Else Do You Need To Know? I’ve been working with WordPress as my blogging platform and CMS of choice for over 6 years. I’ve done the most common blog theme to some of the strangest uses of the platform that I can imagine.
