James Lewis, Jr. – Designer
After earning a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts in computer graphic design from the University of the Incarnate Word in San Antonio, I jumped in to website design and maintenance at Rackspace Managed Hosting. I started working with a small but highly talented team troubleshooting, designing, and promoting Rackspace which is today one of the largest web hosting companies in the world.
For over 11 years, I have been called upon by some cool clients creating websites for the San Antonio Spurs, Rackspace, Republic Tequila, Rosario’s Mexican Restaurant, Silo Elevated Cuisine and more.
What separates me from the rest of the pack is my experience from working with some of the brightest minds over at Rackspace. Working with people like Todd Morey and Johathan Byrce have helped me understand how to “build” a good website. Aside from being grounded in the web hosting environment, I have also had the pleasure of working with some great designers like Michael Karshis. Working side by side with creative gurus help me think not only out side the box, but it helps me think about why the box exists. It not good enough to just make something cool. Anyone can make something cool. Good design is when you make the complicated seem simple. Email James
Travis Linares – Programmer
After earning a Masters in Computer Science and Analytical thinking from the University of the South Florida in Tampa, I immediately went to Microsoft to work on Conversion Projects. I worked on a team of a highly talented team from around the world troubleshooting, designing, and debugging the conversion of Rocket-mail to what we knew back then as Hotmail. During this time, I also earned my Certification for to teach and manipulate S.E.O. (Search Engine Optimization), S.M.O. (Social Media Optimization) and S.E.M. (Search Engine Marketing) in order to help me move forward in my next ventures in life.
For the next 4 years after that, I dove into print design. I also learned programming in several languages, including my favorite jQuery! After an abrupt change with my families health, I moved closer to them to San Antonio, TX to work at Rackspace which is today one of the largest web hosting companies in the world.
Everyday I wake up my fuel burns my fire when I see a new client get exactly what they want, when they want it. When a client is happy I am happy. When I see work I have done on billboards, magazines, websites, and many other means of advertising, I just sit back and smile. Email Travis
