Graphic design, also known as communication design, is the art and practice of planning and projecting ideas and experiences with visual and textual content.
Back in 2000 I got my first computer and fell in love with Photoshop. I realized that
this was a software program that I could really use to paint my ideas with instead of using a
canvas so along with Illustrator I started designing business cards, logo's, flyers and announcements for my Day Spa that I had in Boca Raton and Delray Beach, Florida.
After the hurricanes we had, two of them back to back, I decided to start learning how to design websites on my own, since my Day Spa's had been ruined and I felt like this was a signal to start on a different path.
At the time IWeb was a popular tool for creating websites along with Photoshop and layers. My IMac went everywhere with me until its demise in 2007. After switching over to Windows I also taught myself coding using XHMTL in Dreamweaver which is now HTML5 and started to look into a degree centering around Web Design. I also loved doing Animation in Flash but unfortunately "Flash" was not a popular platform for viewing animations as it took forever to load. The new software to accomplish animation is now After Effects and Animate Edge by Adobe. I feel like I have taught myself more from being online than from being in school but it was good to learn the basics of web design as some things never change.
I still do not know everything but I do know that I have a passion for designing beautiful functional websites and will continue to learn and expand my base of knowledge whenever and wherever the opportunity arises..
I'm Raquelia and I represent both the creative and technical side of Dynamic Direction In Design.
I became passionate about Photoshop back in 2000 and put down my paintbrush in favor of designing on a computer screen with the CS4 software and now using CS6 of the latest cloud version.
I graduated from The Academy Of Art University in San Francisco one year ago with a degree in Web Design and New Media and have now devoted most of my time to designing websites for small businesses
primarily working "Freelance."
While in college I worked part time for an organization developing logo's, designing newsletters, magazine advertisements and web design layouts.
It became apparent to me that I totally love designing and creating the most beautiful and functional websites while working Freelance and am very glad to be out of college. I have found that I can learn more on my own from the world wide web than I did in school even though it was instructional from a basic viewpoint.
I also work part-time as a Massage Therapist in between web and graphic design jobs but definitly would prefer to do web design full time as this is my passion!
I would love to work on your web design idea and will look forward to speaking with you about your ideas. There are many facets to a web design and even though it may sound simple at first the details are extremely important especially if you want to be doing business on the web and nowadays it is almost impossible to do business without a website whether to inform clients of your location or address and hours or just a product that you want to sell.
It's the age of the cell phone which happens to be getting bigger(both literally and figuratively) by the day so it's imperative to have a responsive website as well that can be viewed on all devices.
On a personal note, I live in sunny South Florida with my spouse and my beautiful 2 schnauzers. I love designing websites, making graphics and constructing Videos in After Effectsworking out, gardening, playing with the kids, researching trends and doing Massage Therapy, in addition to learning the piano. Perhaps one day I will get back to painting on canvas as soon as beautiful art is trending again.
"Raquelia worked with me to help upgrade, redesign and market one of my websites that had been hacked and after loosing all my info I was unsure of where to start.
After speaking with Raquelia I felt confident that my site would be up and running soon. She also helped with content, images and color choices along with making my old site responsive for every device
while working within my budget.
I'm very happy with the results, she was always on time, and felt her rates were very reasonable. Would recommend DDinDesign.com for all small business's that do not know where to start."
“After two unsuccessful attempts at building and maintaining our web sites ourselves, we realized we needed a professional! DDinDesign managed to do it all while making our site user friendly and beautiful. She went the extra mile to complete the job to our needs and within our budget and it was a pleasure to do business with DDinDesign.”
“Raquelia took all my questions and explained to me in simple terms what needed to be done so that the first mock-ups were what I wanted while everything looked good so we could get my new website up and running efficiently.”
“Don't "Do It Yourself" when you can use an artistic and creative person like Raquelia from Dynamic Direction In Design. Leave it to a professional who communicates with you on a simple basis to create either a template website or one from scratch. Let Raquelia help you tap into your niche market while expanding on your vision.”
