Photo of Kurt Rankin, Freelance Web Designer in Houston area

Hi. My name is Kurt, and I'm a Web Designer.

In my free time I enjoy things like basketball, movie marathons, animals, and traveling. But when I'm not shooting hoops, browsing Netflix, petting a stray dog, or planning my next trip, I make internet things.

My professional experience includes website and logo design, front-end coding, responsive design, WordPress theme customization, shopping cart implementation, e-mail marketing campaigns, and more.

Look down below to view examples of my previous work, and if you like what you see, don't hesitate to let me know!
