about me

Hi, I’m Dustin! Web Developer and Designer residing just outside of Richmond, Virginia.

I enjoy creating custom WordPress themes and website designs – using Bootstrap as the primary framework. I am well-versed in HTML and CSS and have hand-coded every website in my portfolio using open-source HTML editors. With modern-day website design, less is always more. Sometimes the simplest designs can have the biggest impact – which is why I keep my designs both minimal and relatively simple. This allows me to create unique, audience-focused designs that have a solid foundation – managed by one of the top content management systems.

It is also important to focus on websites that are accessible. This means building websites with consideration of those who may have visual or auditory impairments. Designs should be easy to read and easy to navigate. This also includes designing websites that can be viewed on all devices – from desktop and laptop computers to tablets and smartphones. We live in a digital age and websites need to fit into the modern era.

When I’m not behind a computer screen, I enjoy spending time outdoors (you can usually find me in the garden), watching sports and the company of close friends and family. I am a man of simple tastes and enjoy life’s simple pleasures. I love what I do and take pride in my work – regardless of it being personal or professional.

One more thing… the “krat” in my website URL is just a shortened version of my last name. Much easier to remember (and pronounce) than my full name. Which, by the way, I will give you some serious brownie points if you can get it right on the first try. Good luck!

Cheers,

Dustin Kratochwill
