About Me

Brian Houdek and Family

My goal is to become the premier website designer and marketing expert in the Chicago area. I plan on getting there by putting my clients’ needs FIRST.

Welcome to my website. I began designing websites at a young age and it has always been a passion of mine. What sets me apart from other web design firms is the personalized service I provide. As my client you won’t have to worry about who to speak to when you call your web design firm – I will always be your direct contact. As a freelance web designer I can show you how an effective website and marketing campaign can help your business become more profitable. Too often I have clients come to me from other firms that were grossly overcharged for services, mistreated and ignored. I take pride in the fact that I listen to my clients needs. I work cooperatively with clients to create the perfect website that will not only be visually appealing, but also increase profitability.

My Background

After working for numerous tech companies in my late teens, I decided to follow a different career path. I’m a full-time Firefighter and Paramedic in a western suburb of Chicago. I love my career but my passion for web design never dissipated. After the birth of my daughter, I decided to start my own freelance web design firm and never looked back. 90% of my business is word of mouth. I believe if you treat clients with respect and create great websites at a reasonable price the business will follow.

My Knowledge

I’m fluent in HTML5, CSS3, Javascript, PHP and JQuery. I’ve built websites using strictly HTML and CSS but I’ve found WordPress is a better solution for most clients. I also have experience building successful eCommerce websites based on the Magento and WooCommerce platforms. I host all the websites I create on a reseller server, which means every website has it’s own control panel.  This is essential for most companies. The hosting company I store my sites with has a 99.9% uptime and is one of the largest in the world. I’m very proficient with Adobe products, which I use for graphic design (Photoshop and Illustrator).
