Hi! My name is Roger Poole.

I do design and code for websites. With a long history of communications experience starting with a BFA from Syracuse University, finely tuned into an eye for detail by many years at Lyons Marketing and as a partner at WH2P Inc. I am able to help you with my lifetime capabilities to make your website as effective a marketing tool as it can be.

Random Profound Words to live by:

The secret of getting ahead is getting started. The secret of getting started is breaking your complex overwhelming tasks into small manageable tasks, and then starting on the first one. Mark Twain

I make websites.

My primary focus when I do your site will be to make it SEO friendly. I make responsive websites. And I will make your site accessibility friendly.

And while my experience does qualify me to design your logo or other collateral, that’s not my current focus. I’d rather design your website. If you have a designer on hand, I’ll gladly work with them to keep your site within your “brand.” I code CSS. I code HTML, and if I work on your site today, it will be done to the most current HTML5 standards. I pride myself with my sites validating as error free. For even more fun, check this website grader link. I work with PHP and mySQL. I work with jQuery. My biggest advantage over your using a full time “coder” is I can tell what looks right and what doesn’t. I am more comfortable in Photoshop or Illustrator than you might ever be. And more versed in effective legible web typography than a print designer will ever be. And if your coding problem is really complex, I will gladly help guide you to the right resource.

The Portfolio

I’ve done internet interactive work since 1997.

In web speak, that’s the Stone Ages. There’s a lot of stuff I’ve seen in those years. Browser wars mostly. WebTV was in vogue. (Oddly enough, it sounds like WebTV might come back.) Way back before that, I did a lot of print work. If you come to me from the print world, I can tell you I’ve done print design for many major companies such as Field & Stream, Remington Firearms or DuPont since 1977, so I’ll understand your intentions from the get-go and will help guide you to producing your project properly for the web. And no, I don’t want to do print collateral anymore.

I’ve managed email blasts for many clients over many years.

This field has changed many times in the last 15 years as Microsoft has complicated the picture with their different rendering engines, and now, it is even more complicated as more than 50% of your emails are opened on mobile phones and need responsive coding. I know my way around coding the complicated css required to put a graphically interesting email together. I'm very experienced in list management and understanding the various server responses.

That all said, while I'm helping you email the world, I can wholeheartedly recommend the spam blocker services of MXGuardDog for your spam management needs.

I’ve joined about every social media site out there.

I’m no fool, this is a business.
