I am a freelance developer in HTML5/CSS3, PHP, Ajax, and JQuery.
My company is http://www.jrpepp.com/ where you can see my work, such as http://www.thegrocerylist.us/ that I’m currently working on. I also working on http://www.blissfulpicture.com/. In addition to being a web developer, I also have a College Degree in Computer Graphics: Interactive Media and Game Design. I’ll also have been taking additional college courses in Web Graphics and Motion Graphics (After Effects). I can give your website an interactive look, pun intended. ;D
My freelance price is negotiable; however, the more creative freedom you give me the lower the fee will be. 8)
If you have a the website layout set in cement and absolutely has to be done a certain way, then I recommend you doing yourself. I know the last sentence sounds harsh, but I just had a potential client tell me that a website she wanted had to be a certain color, be done with a template that she already bought that was done in WordPress She keep on saying all you have to do is modify the template, I thought to myself if it is that easy why don’t you do it yourself. Needless to say I told her to find someone else, I feel sorry for that poor sole. My point is that if you are teetering on doing yourself or having it done by someone else, my suggestion would to be try it yourself first. If it fails, then hire someone else, but with the understanding that he/she is probably going to do it their way. Don’t put handcuffs on a person right off the bat. I can understand if this is a company that a person was working for, but this is Freelance work. The freelancer will have different tools to get the job done. Just because you like WordPress doesn’t mean that person will and that it will take longer to do because of it (Another sour item with that client).
