Hi. My name is Joshua Ward. I design and build websites.

Originally from South Dakota, my wife and I just moved to the Denver area with our two amazing dogs. My mission in life is to be a respectable human being and make a positive impact on the people I encounter. In my free time, I enjoy traveling, skateboarding, snowboarding, art, the Rocky Mountains, hiking, and music.

I graduated Cum Laude from Arizona State University with a Bachelor's degree in Web Design & Internet Development in 2011. I also have an Associate's degree in Graphic Design for print from Scottsdale Community College.

skills

I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for ransom, I can tell you I don't have money. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills, skills I have acquired over my career. Skills that make me a nightmare for the competition. If you're looking for these particular skills, please hire me :) This set of skills are what pay my bills.

experience

Peterson's Education

UI/UX Developer Highlands Ranch, CO

Responsible for designing and developing user interfaces for web applications and websites using the latest Bourbon/Sass framework, including neat, bitters and refills as well as the Foundation framework. I create wireframes and prototypes in UX Pin and Photoshop. After the initial design, I then build those user-interfaces responsively with HTML and CSS3 for all modern browsers.

Insight Enterprises, Inc.

Intranet Manager / Web Designer Tempe, AZ

At Insight, I manage a corporate intranet, that was launched in February 2015, as well as the old intranet that was developed in ColdFusion. On a day-to-day basis, I handle anything from support tickets to landing pages within the CMS to creating large, fully functional microsites outside of the intranet CMS platforms. I manage user access as well as the overall governance of the system. In this position I regularly use HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, and jQuery. From time to time, I would have to edit and duplicate ColdFusion files and forms from the old intranet. As the project lead, I did all of the research and planned the vision for the new intranet. In 2014, I had the opportunity to manage two web design interns, one for 3 months and the other for 8 months.

Front-End Web Developer Chandler, AZ

Managed a full website project from design to development in HTML4/CSS3/JavaScript. Using Photoshop, I created the initial user interface showing little to no functionality. From there, I developed a static HTML/CSS3 site to show the client how the site will look and act when live. This site was built using Bootstrap 3

Freelance: The Happy Fish

Front-End Web Developer Chandler, AZ

Managed a full website project from design to development in WordPress. Using Photoshop, I created the initial user interface showing little to no functionality. From there, I developed a static HTML/CSS3 site to show the client how the site will look and act when live. After client approval, the site was moved to a WordPress platform providing a dynamic and easy to use site for the client. Upon completion, the client is trained on how to use the admin portion of the site to become a self-sufficient small business website owner. This site was built using Bootstrap 3.
