Jeremy Saylor's Resume
I am a web designer with a resume of more than a decade of results using my experience with PHP, HTML, CSS, WordPress, responsive design & SEO. More than your average designer, I bring a diverse communication background, spending time working in television production, print production and non-profit communication.
Not only can I build the website, I can take the photos, shoot the video and produce the print materials that bring in new customers and grow your business.
Full Metal Chicken

- Using mostly WordPress, I design great websites that solve problems and bring in new customers for medium to large manufacturing companies. This can include creating custom themes, innovative user interfaces, as well as SEO and keyword research.
- Projects have ranged from simple landing pages with custom forms to a complete overhaul of a B2C website for a global tape manufacturer.
- When I’m not gettting nerdy with the web, I’ve been found putting together some catalogs, posters and other print materials in InDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator.
- I’m no stranger to a good video production as well. Shooting with a DSLR and executing some editing magic in Adobe Premiere.
