About Me

Wendy Dale Smith

Why Do I Do This?

I love to create. For as long as I can remember, I’ve been driven to make manifest my imagination, to illustrate, to write, to paint, to sculpt, and to design in any capacity. Like paintbrush and pencil, software and code are my tools to express that overwhelming desire.

My Background

I have over 15 years of professional experience in web, multimedia and print design. My web design capability includes all phases of development – from preliminary wireframing to high-fidelity graphic mockups to final coding of CSS/HTML/jQuery prototypes and implementation during the entire Agile software development process. I have a solid expertise in web design skillsets - such as coding in HTML5, CSS3, and jQuery, with an emphasis on responsive web design (Mobile First Design) and the use of frameworks such as Twitter Bootstrap.

I have a thorough education in design with a BFA in Graphic Communications. My professional experience encompasses institutions and corporations large and small, such as Cengage Learning, Stewart Title, UnitedHealthcare, ExxonMobil, and Halliburton.

For a thorough listing of my experience and skills, please refer to my profile on LinkedIn.
