About Me

Photograph of Damian Schmidt

My name is Damian Schmidt, and I’m a freelance graphic designer and front-end web developer.

I took on this career path because of my interest in things that can be created in a way that’s pleasant to look at yet also practical to use, blending form with function.

I graduated with high honors from Northern Essex Community College in Haverhill, Massachusetts in 2011 with a certificate in web page design and development. I keep my knowledge on the cutting-edge by regularly paying attention to the latest news in web technologies and trends.

I live in Massachusetts, and I work remotely via the Internet with clients elsewhere in the United States as well as internationally. I do jobs mostly for small- and medium-sized organizations.

On the freelancer-hiring hub Upwork, I’m regarded a “Top Rated” freelancer for my “consistent and successful Upwork work history.”

I’m creative, detail-oriented, organized, and driven to producing exceptional work. When I’m not doing design stuff, I might be secretly fighting crime in a colorful, skin-tight outfit.
