Doug Vander Meulen - Web Developer
I love to create. Every saturday morning of my youth was spent on my living room floor thinking of different creations I could make with the Legos spread out in front of me.
As a web and graphic designer, I have the privilege of helping clients create unique and memorable experiences. I enjoy the entire creative process, having built up experience the last 7 years in visual design, front-end web development and back-end web development. I strive to communicate clear messages that call users to action. I want to create things that help others succeed and make the world a better place.
I am married with three daughters and a boy on the way. We often share our home with others and are currently living in community with a family of four. So I appreciate the need to communicate clearly!
