Five Points Interactive

Welcome!

Hello & welcome to my online portfolio! In 2001, after being a stay-at-home-mom for almost 20 years, (and having worked various jobs outside the home from time to time) I decided I needed a change. I have always been in love with art and I come from a long line of creative people so I took my talents to the computer and taught myself graphic design. Over time, I also taught myself web design and I love it! It’s by far the best job I’ve had outside of being a mom :-) I now work at home, having spent time working for the Missouri School Board’s Association as their web & graphic design specialist.

Five Points Interactive is a design firm that has a wide range of design disciplines with 10+ years of experience. I love to create simple, yet visually appealing web sites that have a clear message and is user friendly. I design in CSS + XHTML and strive to keep all my work in this area in line with the standards of the W3C. See my services page for a quick view of what I offer.

How I roll

I start every morning at the computer with a luscious, homemade frapp and a piece of Dove dark chocolate. (I tell myself the chocolate makes me more creative :-))

**UPDATE** I have started working outside the home at MBS Textbook Excange here in Columbia. I love my job! I'm currently the lead designer of a very important project (one I will share when I'm further along) and I'm teaching myself HTML5, CSS3, and Responsive web design to get the job done! I’m rockin it out :p.

In other news, I’m also in the beginning mockup phase of redesigning the site. I’ll be updating my blog with screenshots and general entries of the progress :) All feedback is welcome!
