Web design is an endlessly progressive field. I do my best to keep up with the design trends and the always evolving technology. I also make sure my websites follow W3C standards to the best of my abilities. Now using HTML5 and CSS3.
Practice make perfect here. My designs are always improving with every chance I get to create a new "work of art".
Why the name "Green Man"? Well, my last name is Zeleny, which originated in the Czech Republic (fomerly Czechoslovakia) and spread throughout Europe, eventually making it's way to the United States. Zeleny, meaning "Green" or "Green Man" was the given name for my ancestors because of the green clothing they wore.
I have been working with digital designs since 1998. It all started when I was invited by a friend that admired my hand-drawn artwork to join the yearbook committee. With the collaboration and teamwork from all the talented students, we had 2 yearbooks designed with Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Pagemaker go on to win state awards for best yearbook. This is what sparked my passion for digital design.
After high school, I took on numerous non-graphic related jobs, only to find myself scouring the internet after work for Photoshop tutorials to advance my skills. Since there was no job market for a novice graphic designer in my small hometown of Gillette, WY, I decided to move and explore more abundant opportunities.
My move to Florida was an eye-opener. Things really are different here; more opportunities, and more competition. Although I was unable to find a graphic design job, I was able to find jobs framing houses, and a few other labor/retail jobs. This lasted for a while, until I decided it was time to go to college to pursue my ideal career as a graphic designer.
I graduated at the top of my class, with a 4.0 G.P.A. from Brevard Community College in Melbourne, FL in May 2010 with an Associate's Degree in Graphics Technology. Due to the limited graphic design positions available in Brevard County, I was still stuck working retail with small graphics and web jobs on the side for a while. Eventually an awesome job came along for a Web / Graphic Designer and I jumped on board! Now I am continually learning new techniques and skills to put in my belt and I couldn't be happier with my job!
I am experienced with the following software and languages:
I can make static, hand coded websites and dynamic websites using Joomla! to manage content with a hand-coded custom template (Wordpress is solely used for blogs). I can also use OsCommerce or OpenCart to build a nice shopping cart website for your products.
I can also design anything for print, whether it be business cards, t-shirts, logos, brochures etc.. You name it, you got it.
P.S. -- Yeah, I used Twitter Bootstrap as a base for my site. Why not?! It's awesome! Clean, simple and responsive! Yeah Buddy!
