~Welcome to Gwen Smith Designs~
I am a recent graduate from the Digital Arts and New Media program at Selkirk College, BC. My area of specialization is Front-end Web Design and Development. My educational background included Web Design, Graphic Design, and Digital Video. I have samples of my work on the Portfolio page. I also offer website templates and custom designs which I discuss more in-depth on the services page.
When I first entered college in 2010, it didn't take me long to realize just how much I love Web Design. I did simple hand-coding before college and I enrolled in the digital arts program to further my knowledge and skills. The internet is an amazing source of information, inspiration, and connection and I want to contribute to that.
One of my main goals is to keep learning. After all, the world wide web is constantly changing. Interactive and responsive web design has made a huge influence on my work. I keep up-to-date with the industry, and I code to best practices and web standards as laid out by the W3C.
