Mark Ward

A little bit about myself

My name is Mark Ward and I am a freelance web developer, graphic designer and WordPress expert living in Twin Falls, ID. I have been lucky enough to be able to make a living doing what I love. Web & graphic design are my passion and I’m always finding new ways to be creative and to get better everyday.

Background

Prior to moving to Idaho I was the head web developer at the University of Montana Western. At UMW I served as the head web developer and online content manager. After moving to Twin Falls in 2010 to marry my beautiful wife Rachel, I was hired as a graphic designer at the Times-News. There my time was split between designing both online and print ads as well as helping manage the online advertisements.

What’s Going On Now

For the past four years I have been working full-time as a freelance web developer and graphic designer.

My day to day activities include:

  •   writing clean cross-browser compliant code
  •   customizing both frontend and backend elements of existing content management systems
  •   maintaining and updating client sites
  •   setting up and using analytics
  •   running a managed web server
  •   search engine optimization

My skills are unique in that I wear many hats. Not only can I design for print and web, but I am also able to the perform the more technical aspects of web development (i.e. the real nerdy stuff). Whatever your problem I am confident that I can help provide a solution that will surpass your expectations.
