I’m Aaron Hawkins, a web developer/designer in the Flathead Valley. My goal as a developer is to attain gainful employment producing beautiful and robust websites and applications that will improve customer’s end experience and businesses’ website visits and conversions. For me, the most fulfilling labor is work where I am producing value for both the employer and the end user.
My style is simple, informative and friendly. I appreciate sleek, minimalist design that looks great and tells visitors what they need to know quickly and easily. I focus on intuitive navigation, responsive design and optimized media assets so that the site is accessible to all visitors, including those on phones and tablets and those with a slow internet connection. I can also function as a prolific content creator: I am well read, reading at least two books every week and keeping up with the daily news, and I type at 140 words per minute.
My inspiration is to aspire towards producing a bit of internet to call my own work. Just like how a construction worker passes by stores, homes and structures in a town and says “I worked on that”, I am satisfied when I have my own work available for people to view and enjoy. For me, web design and development is both noble labor and also an extremely rewarding creative endeavor. When I finish my work and get the website live, I feel proud of what I’ve created. The site this is posted on is a good example of some of the design I like to see in a blog and a website.
