About Me

Hello! I’m Nick Jennes, an experienced multi-faceted designer that wears many hats. I specialize in creating beautiful, user-friendly and professional websites using the latest and best web standards and practices. I currently work as a Front End Engineer for Entrepreneur Magazine, where I’ve been doing web design, coding, programming, newsletters, microsites and much more for over 8 great years! Aside from web development, I’m also proficient in the arts of graphic design, industrial design and studio art. I graduated from Western Washington University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, major in General Studies and minor in Studio Art, with a concentration in Digital Media and Industrial Design. I graduated from Golden West College with an Associates of Arts degree, major in Digital Arts, a Certificate of Achievement in Graphic Design Production, and two Certificates of Specialization in Graphic/Website Design and Graphic Design Advanced Production. I’m also an Adobe Certified Associate in Photoshop and Dreamweaver. Please download my resume for more information, and contact me if you’d like to connect or hire me!

Background

I was born near Cleveland, Ohio as the youngest of six kids, and we moved to Seattle, Washington when I was 12. I had a fun and adventurous upbringing making art, playing guitar, riding bikes, skiing & snowboarding, spending time with family and friends, travelling to Italy and much more, and I carry these hobbies into my adult life. Following my move to Southern California about 10 years ago, I’ve been all over Europe (planning to go back), and I play guitar in a band called Karmikaze. I’m also engaged to be married, so things are going great!
