Clients' Testimonials

What do my former clients say about me?

  • In his work, Damian demonstrated deep technological understanding, high professionalism, attention to details, and great communication skills. The results were beyond my expectations and were delivered in a timely manner. Would highly recommend!

    — Lior Grossman on Darkness Gmail theme

  • Damian was top notch. He was on time, on task, professional, and knowledgeable. We hired several people to work in parallel on this project, and Damian was so much better than the other designers that we turned them all off and asked Damian to do the entire project.

    — Micah Sugg on ScoreOS graphical user interface

  • Damian did an amazing job of making our company’s vision of website presence come to life. Every time we had an idea, he found a way to implement it in a user-friendly and aesthetic manner. We couldn’t be happier with the site and Damian’s excellent work.

My Services

Why should you hire me to make your website?

  • Graphic Design

    In addition to web design, I do other forms of digital graphic design, including logos, icons, photo editing, and infographics.

  • WordPress Themes

    I develop custom themes for WordPress, the popular content management system that can help you easily write and publish content on your website through a simple, user-friendly interface.

  • Vue.js Apps

    I make progressive web apps (PWAs) with Vue.js, which is a JavaScript framework for building web-based user interfaces with advanced functionalities.

  • Usability

    I’ll not only design your website to look pretty, but also make it easy and intuitive to use, encouraging your visitors to stay longer.

  • Performance

    People are impatient, so don’t make them wait. I can optimize your website to increase efficiency and reduce restless finger-tapping.

  • Responsive Web Design

    The Web is viewed on a diverse range of screens, whether a 5-inch phone or a 50-inch TV. I can develop your website with an adaptable, shape-shifting layout that fits on any size screen.

  • Search Engine Optimization

    The top few results on search engines like Google are crucial for getting people to discover your website. I know the SEO methods that’ll help raise your website to the upper ranks in search results.

  • Code Quality

    I develop websites to W3C standards and I follow best coding practices. I strive to make web pages accessible, including to people who use outdated web browsers or alternative input devices.

About Me

My name is Damian Schmidt, and I’m a front-end web developer and digital graphic designer. Being freelance, my services are generally open to anyone who requests for them.

I currently live in Mas­sa­chu­setts, and I work remotely via the Inter­net with clients elsewhere in the United States as well as in other countries. I’ve worked with clients directly and with design agencies as a subcontractor.

In 2011, I graduated with high honors from Nor­thern Essex Co­mmu­ni­ty Col­lege in Mas­sa­chu­setts with a certificate in web page design and development. I’ve been keeping my knowledge on the cutting-edge by regularly reading about the latest news in ever-changing web technologies and trends.

I’ve taken 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, merging form with function.

In my spare time, I’m secretly a vigilante who fights crime while wearing a colorful skin-tight outfit.
