Wilkommen, bienvenue, benvenuto, welcome!

My name is Nathan Shafer, and I am the owner and designer of First Focus Design. I have been involved in web and graphic design for over twelve years, first as owner and manager of a wedding and portrait photography business, then as a freelance designer.

As a graphic designer, I design logos, business identity packages, ads and fliers, reports... documents from business cards all the way up to multi-page brochures and periodicals. I am familiar with the Adobe Creative Suite 4, and am an Adobe Certified Expert in Photoshop.

As a web designer, I can create a new site for you, add pages to or modify an existing site. I can set up password-protected pages and sites, incorporate databases, and create blogs and comment sections. I am comfortable working with HTML, CSS, Javascript; Adobe Flash and Dreamweaver, and Microsoft Expression Web; PHP, mySQL, and ASP.NET.
