Hello, and welcome to my site! My name is James Weaver and I live in Columbus, Ohio. I'm a UX Web Application Designer at JP Morgan Chase and freelance web designer.
The purpose of this site is to provide you with an understanding of who I am, what I'm doing, and where I'm going. The site has an rss news feed page that posts feeds from many top designers and websites, a web design portfolio showcasing my work, and a blog where you can learn about the newest technologies in web design, including, HTML5, CSS3, and jQuery. You can also meet some of my friends and neighbors or learn more about me on my about page.
Freelance web design has been a part of my life for several years. The web design community moves at an extremely fast past and keeping up with the latest trends is challenging. While I haven't moved into HTML5, I have expanded my designs to include CSS3. Please read more about my freelance web design skills on my about page...
I've been spending a lot of time developing my graphic design skills. All of my training comes from online tutorials. You'd be amazed at what a person can learn from reading and following photoshop tutorials online. Some of my favorite websites include smashingmagazine css-tricks, and Alistapart, to name a few.
Photography is probably my least developed skill, but I love to shoot. I haven't really taken the time to learn as much about photography as I have web design, but I have managed to learn a few things on the topic. High Dynamic Range has to be my favorite type of photography. If you haven't heard of it, check out the following HDR Photography
