~Welcome to Gwen Smith Designs~

I specialize in Front-End Web Development, Digital Video, and Online/Social Media Marketing. I'm an artist at heart and I'm passionate about creating and building things for the Web that have an impact. I have samples of my work on the Portfolio page, including a tutorial for an experimental game I created with HTML5 Canvas/Javascript. I've worked with several content management systems, for e-commerce and for client self-management, which includes Zencart, Wordpress, Shopify, Drupal, and CushyCMS. I also offer website templates and custom designs which I discuss more in-depth on the services page.

When I first entered college in 2010, it didn't take me long to realize just how much I love Web Design. I did simple hand-coding before college and I enrolled in a digital arts program to further my knowledge and skills. I'm now currently in university working my way towards a BSc in Computing and Information Systems degree. The internet is an amazing source of information, inspiration, and connection and I want to contribute to that.

One of my main goals is to keep learning. After all, the world wide web is constantly changing. Interactive and responsive web design has made a huge influence on my work. I keep up-to-date with the industry, and I code to best practices and web standards as laid out by the W3C.
