DARREN HAYS

I am a designer. My passion is creating beautifully functional user experiences. I have over 14 years experience crafting unique and creative websites, combining powerful visual tools such as Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator with meticulously written HTML and CSS. My greatest strengths include front-end development, UX, responsive web design & web/print graphics. I have worked with many well known businesses including; Harpo’s, Tiger Hotel, Focus on Learning Center and The Blue Note, just to name a few. My goal is to develop robust and engaging websites with carefully composed imagery for each client, allowing their businesses and brands to truly flourish.
