My name is Timothy Eberly.
Who am I and what do I do?
The first thing I want people to know about me is that I do a lot of different things. I don’t just do graphic design or illustration. I am also a photographer and a web developer. Although I have stepped away from developing I understand it enough to be able to communicate with the developers on a team. I have had the opportunity to code on certain projects as well, which saved the client the time and money it would take to hire a developer in addition to their designer.
In addition, I apply my developer knowledge and design skills to work together on the SEO portions of client’s sites.
A website’s success depends on all of these pieces coming together in one synergistic project. The design, the photography, the code, all of these things are crucial to the site’s SEO and marketability.
When it comes to producing graphics for an assignment I will often shoot my own stock images and build the graphics with SEO in mind. Then when they are found in a search they will do more than just look pretty. One third of the searches out there are for images, so it is never a good idea to ignore their importance, both in quality and in search engine optimization.
Other than work, what am I about?
I am pretty analytical in nature. I am the type of person that has to figure out better ways of doing things. This is can be an asset or drawback. On the one hand it means I am constantly looking for improvements, on the other it means I struggle with completing a task more so than some.
- I am a family man.
- I have three amazing kids. All three are in Jiu Jitsu, and have been studying it for over three years now.
- I love my wife. I just wish I could spend more time with her.
- I love my coffee. I might even be considered a coffee snob. 🙂
- I believe in God. I strive to trust Him more every day.
- I own a Cane Corso. What an amazing dog she is.
I am sitting in front of my computer most of the day either working on a project or learning how to do something new.
Well, that is me in a nut shell. If it helped, good, that is awesome.
