I'm a web designer with a focus on detail, using WordPress so it's easy to maintain once my work is done! My passion lies in creating design that connects with people in a way that pulls them in.

In addition to assuring that all my sites are worry-free for the technophobe, I also insist on all my sites being responsive. That means that not only will they look amazing on your computer, but they adjust to any size, shrinking even to work well on your phone.

Through my work in the Office for Equity and Diversity at the University of Utah, I have developed a critical lens for my design, creating pieces that are both inclusive and sensitive.

Work experience

Web Software Developer

University of Utah
November, 2011 – Present (about 7 years)

I've worked for several years in the Office for Equity and Diversity at the University of Utah. As their lead web and graphic designer, I manage several websites and create marketing materials for our programs and events. Working in this arena has helped me develop a socially critical lens which I employ in everything I create.

Freelance Web Designer

Self-employed
January, 2009 – Present (almost 10 years)

In the nearly a decade that I have been freelancing, I've had the opportunity to create a variety of websites, which has allowed me to hone my skills while learning how to customize the product to suit the genre and the clients' unique needs. I also understand that not everyone is tech-friendly, so I do what I can to make every website easy to navigate and maintain for the long run.

Projects

Black Graduate Student Association

The intention of this website was to be eye-catching and fun, while still maintaining an air of academic professionalism. The students wanted to be able to grow their community, so other users are allowed to elect to have their information on the site, creating online networking possibilities. Built using Wordpress.

Special features:
• Sorting filters
• Form to add your information to the site
• Search in footer

Tender Folk Co.

This Tender Folk Co. was designed to be understated to let the client's artwork take the stage. All elements are as minimal as possible while still allowing the website to be easy to navigate.

Special features:
• Instagram feed on homepage
• Shopping cart integration
• Blog section
• Contact form that emails the client

Joe Pug

A website designed to showcase the music of the singer/songwriter Joe Pug. This website was built to reflect the style of his music, while incorporating his logo and branding colors. Built on Wordpress.

Special features:
• Fade-in animation on homepage
• Podcast incorporation
• Embedded Spotify and video content
• Animated album covers that flip to reveal track listings
• Tour list incorporation from Bands in Town

University of Utah Department of Theatre

Wordpress-powered website built for the Department of Theatre at the University of Utah. As this site is very informational, I had to find ways to be creative in presenting a large amount of text. Each piece of the site is customizable without needing to know code.

Special features:
• Instagram feed on the homepage
• Popup content in homepage header
• People page is maintained through a custom post type, making it easy for the client to update without code
• Photo gallery on production pages
• Blog section
• Contact form that stores in a database

Cultural Connections by Design

This site was created to promote two games developed to help organizations teach their employees about diversity and inclusion. Built on Wordpress, the site is dynamic and unique, however all sections of the content are still able to be edited without the use of code.

Special features:
• Background video header
• Number totals count up as you scroll down to give movement and dynamic action to the pages.
• Contact form that emails the client
• Coded Wordpress Customizer to manage the custom design areas.
• The organizations are managed through a custom post type, so that every time the client visits a new one she can add it to the site without having to manually change the information on the various pages that it is seen on.

From the outset, Mindy did a fantastic job and went out of her way to not only meet requirements but to actually surpass them. This started with her reading some of my text to get into the mood and did not end with delivering bonus designs and providing patient, calm and super professional advice all throught. The end result is fabulous and the feedback I'm getting on my site super positive. It...
