Recommendations

"Eldon has done great work for us designing interactive Web-based tools for language learners. His designs are clean, appropriate for the audience, and, in several cases, completed under extremely demanding deadline pressure. He listens very well and communicates clearly with both technical and non-technical staff. We look forward to working with him in the future and would recommend him to any others who need the services of a first-rate designer." -Carl Falsgraf, Director, Center for Applied Second Language Studies, University of Oregon

"Want a good visual design? Want good instructional design? Want a prototype that will help display good visual design and instructional design? Want someone to figure out how to make something nifty work on all browsers? Want someone who is responsive, responsible, and personable? Five letters can meet all these desires: ELDON. I'm system analyst who has been teamed with Eldon by a common client on a common project, and Eldon has helped me look good to that common client. Enough said!" -Tom Hilt, Software Developer (Contract Basis), Artis Logicae

"I work with Eldon on the development of CengageNOW, our online testing and assessment platform. Eldon assists us with user interface solutions and provides us with an excellent blend of both a technical background and an artistic eye. His professionalism is of the highest caliber and he is a pleasure to work with. I wholeheartedly recommend his work." -Kallie Swanson Thomas, Senior Program Manager at Cengage Learning, Digital Solutions Group

"Eldon joined our small-but-fierce team of designers, and he quickly proved himself to be a quick learner and an excellent worker. He has excellent technical skills, and he'll step up to the plate and tackle issues that could make other mortals weep. He also has a truly solid sense of how to balance visual appeal with usability, which is a trait I don't often encounter, but always, always appreciate. He was a great teammate, and I'd be more than happy to work with him again in the future." -Sarah Giffrow, Web Designer at Lunar Logic

"Eldon worked with Lunar Logic doing web design, creative work and converting other designers images into HTML for many of our projects. He delivers EXACTILY when he says he will, and his HTML and CSS code is first class. If your looking for a talented designer with bullet proof CSS and HTML skills, Eldon is an excellent choice." -Todd Edman, CEO at Lunar Logic

"Eldon did a Web 2.0 product interface for us and we have had him back for several iterations. The color scheme selection, graphical flow, and code (css/html) all looked great. In the final hours of a project he came up with a very impressive innovation. I'm comfortable handing over large chunks of work without worry." -Laurence Gellert, Software Architect at Center for Applied Second Language Studies (CASLS)

M. James Fox This was a site I designed and developed in my father's bid for a Siuslaw School District, Board of Directors position in '09.

In addition to front-end UI design and development, I was able to jump into the back-end of things and work with database design and user authentication and data encryption!
