About
A Designer with a Developer's Knowledge

As you already know, my name is William Anderson. What you may not know is that I am a Web Designer, Graphic Designer, Illustrator and Production Ninja hailing from Maryland by way of Washington, D.C.

I have a deep passion for web and graphic design. The process of creating a design; conceiving and building out a project from a blank screen to a finished product is gratifying. As an artist and designer I am not here to just point, click and make things pretty but to deliver a message or statement through the best design principles and practices. I love to be artistically and professionally challenged.
