He strives to create websites that are easy to use, functional, and stunning to look at. By taking time to fully understand the needs and goals of each project Ken aims to create design solutions that not only look great, but serve a purpose. When not creating solutions for the web, Ken can often be found picking banjo, jumping in lakes, and checking out live music around town.
Mike has recently relocated to Victoria from Ontario, where he obtained an education from Sheridan College, graduating in 2009. Mike spent a number of years working as a web designer in Ontario before up and moving to Victoria. He brings with him a passion for design and user experience, which he is continuously striving to enhance. Mike has neglected to bring a frenetic, big city panic to our company and he is easily assimilating into the West Coast stereotype as laid back and easy going. Mike is recently married, and spends off hours exploring Victoria, cooking, painting, and begrudgingly following the Toronto Maple Leafs. We appreciate his calm and measured approach to his work, we look forward to helping him claim Victoria as home.
