Education and Experience - Todd Ballard

I have been developing and designing web sites for businesses since 1998. I went to Texas State University to study Communication Design. I like to broaden my knowledge and skill sets as much as possible, backed by a very strong design and technical skill set, this is why web development is my chosen field.

Artistically inclined from a young age, I gained an interest in computers (PCs) when they first began to become a common household acquisition. With the introduction of the internet and an online GUI (graphical user interface), my interest in computers and the web grew stronger every day.

I will never consider myself an expert in web development, as there is always more to learn. New technologies and standards are constantly being introduced every day, and the world of web development is a continuous learning process. I pride myself in keeping up with these new technologies and standards and staying refined in those that still exist. It is my desire for knowledge that fuels my passion for web design.

Design Philosophy - Todd Ballard

I strongly believe in web standards as a way of design in today's interenet, and I have adopted this methodology to govern my development practice. Not only does conforming to web standards, it generates a multi-browser compliant web site that can be viewed on everything from home pcs to cell phones and PDA's. It minimizes development time by decreasing the time needed for intensive backward-compatibility testing. It is more efficient design and is optimized for speed by its very nature.

Design Structure - Todd Ballard

I will design your site skeleton with a combination of XHTML for site content, CSS for design layout, styling and presentation, PHP for server side includes, scripting, and SQL database queries (if needed), and JavaScript for client-side scripting.
