Welcome to the Online Portfolio of Stephen Funderburk, a freelance web designer and developer. I take pride in every page I create and strive to make your vision come to life in a unique and custom way; whether it is for a small company, large company, personal portfolio, or just a simple web page to promote yourself or your cause. I take pleasure in creating designs that are as unique as you or your company. Graduating from the International Academy of Design and Technology with a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts in Interactive Media, I quickly found a niche with some fellow graduates and began creating sites for local companies. Following another calling, I moved to Lee County to teach my passion to others and to help them realize the amazing Online world that could be theirs. Always looking for the next project, I welcome any new challenges. Take a look at my work, then let's talk today and make your vision an Online reality!
With years of experience from both creating websites and teaching the subject, I have acquired many techniques to bring your vision to the web with your own unique look. Every site is custom made from the ground up. Services include Natural Search Engine Optimization, responsive designs, custom built content management systems, ASP.NET, databasing and more! From concept to creation, keeping you up-to-date and involved in the project are just some of the many things that set me apart from the rest.
Are you a Graphic Designer or an Artist? Do you need a portfolio or are you doing work for a client that wants web presence? Hire me to help you out and leave the coding to me. Send me your design files and I'll create the website to your specifications - then you can deliver the final product to your client. They don't even have to know I was involved unless you want them to. You make it beautiful and I'll make it work.
I am a qualified, certified and passionate teacher. I create a learning atmosphere that is engaging, comfortable and fun. Students enjoy coming to my classes where I can share with them my passions of web and game design. I have been trained with WICOR and Kagan and use both in the classroom seamlessly. I am also AVID trained from a National AVID Demonstration School.
