My interest in web design began in elementary school when I was interested in seeing how websites were built. I built my first websites using dial-up internet and a free tool called GeoCities. In high school, I started my own web design firm, Garrett's Websites.
Today, I hand-code my websites using HTML (HyperText Markup Language) and CSS (Cascading StyleSheets), the languages which websites are built using. Graphics are made using Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. My websites include search engine optimization (SEO) to help boost the site's ranking in search engines like Google. I also implement Google Analytics, enabling the site owner to view critical information such as the readership of their site, popular pages, and site flow. Recent websites, such as this one, are 100% responsive to optimize viewing on mobile devices like tablets and phones.
I offer complete solutions and support throughout the entire process — from a conceptual wireframe on a napkin to production to support after completion of the final product. In addition to the design of the project, I offer photography and videography for a "one-stop shop" solution to your needs. I can even help with the design of printed documents and publications.

Every year, the CCBC and local churches hosted the Emancipation Proclamation Celebration in Boonville, Missouri. Also known as “EPC” or “August 4th” to locals, the event celebrates the anniversary of the liberation of African American slaves in the area. The weekend-long event attracts people from all over the country to the various events held around Boonville.
I created the first website for the EPC in 2015 alongside the original CCBC website. This website was hand-coded using HTML and CSS in macOS TextEdit, with graphics produced in Pixelmator. Alongside the website, I created a program booklet that was sold at the various events.
In 2016, the EPC website received an overhaul to better match the updated CCBC website. Navigation on this new website was streamlined, offering quick links to popular parts of the site. A direct link was added to the CCBC website at the top of the page, enabling people to switch between the sites.
The site is currently offline after the sponsoring organization, the CCBC, went out of business.
The Concerned Citizens for a Better Community, Inc. - better known as the CCBC - was a community organization in Boonville, Missouri that helped improve the community and quality of life through events and fundraisers. I constructed the original website in April 2015 using HTML and CSS, hand-coded in macOS TextEdit. Graphics were done in Pixelmator.
An updated website completed in 2016 better matched the historic color scheme of Sumner School, the historically segregated school that served as the organization's headquarters. The updated website also better linked to the website for their annual event, the Emancipation Proclamation Celebration, using tabs located at the top of the site. That website was also hand-coded from scratch in HTML and CSS. This time, Adobe Dreamweaver was used, with graphics done in Adobe Photoshop.
The organization closed its doors in August 2019. Shortly before the organization ceased operations, I assisted the organization with migrating to a WordPress-based site that replaced the standalone website devloped from scratch using HTML and CSS. This WordPress site was intended to make editing and maintenance easier, as they no longer relied on me to publish content. Currently, a press release of the organization's closure is published in place of the site.
