Carlos Flores is a creative web designer based out of Santa Barbara, California. He specializes in custom WordPress and Joomla content management system (CMS) websites. Carlos strives to design websites based around client needs that are not only visually appealing, but are also user friendly, cross browser compatible and web standard compliant. Building websites with WordPress and Joomla platforms makes this process even easier and makes it a cinch for clients to maintain and update the site’s content on their own.
Before plunging into website design and development fulltime, Carlos developed his skills for communication, customer service and support in the Insurance and Banking industries, having worked at Allstate, State Farm, Cottage Hospital (Patient Financial Counselor) and at Golden 1 Credit Union. Appreciating the skills learned in the corporate world but yearning to do more, Carlos headed back to school to study finance, marketing, website design and web development. He fell in love with website design and development, and all of the many processes and details that go into place during the creative process. With solid coursework in Photoshop, Illustrator, Flash, Dreamweaver, HTML, CSS and PHP, Carlos has been developing thoughtful websites using WordPress and Joomla websites for several years, including SantaBarbaraContacts.com, a free online community directory for Santa Barbara businesses and organizations.
