My name is Joel Anderson. I'm a front-end developer-designer based in Vancouver, Canada with experience across digital, web, print, brand identity and website strategy.
As Dallas Willard says, "I haven't had a career. I've had a careen." As a young teenager I had a brain injury and began adulthood with a disability. I was also up against the culture shock of returning to Canada after growing up in the Middle East. Up against many odds, I completed four years of art and design studies at leading BC universities and then ten years of front-end development and design work.
Discover my work. I'd be happy to share a few relevant case studies. Stories of collaborating with clients and the results they saw. Increased traffic. Increased sales and donations. Branding and website renovations can make a big difference.
I am committed to helping you find the services you need. Rather than drumming up more work, I would rather help you identify your goals and needs accurately, even if that means referring you elsewhere. If simple search engine optimization will do the job, I will not suggest a full website redesign. I'm in this business to help, not just to make money. I aim always to put people first.
