Jacqi Vargas

My name is Jacqueline Vargas; I’m a Designer & Developer. I have been pursuing my love of graphic design and web development for 15 years. I started out by learning HTML at age 13. I took on my first internship at age 15 and began to work on freelance projects on the side. In college, I interned a few more times, and worked as a Graphic & Web Designer at Benson Design. In December 2007, I graduated with my Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of the Incarnate Word in Computer Graphic Arts.

In July of 2008, I started working full-time, at UPPERCASE Design Group, as Lead Web Developer and Graphic Designer. In August of 2011, I became a Software Developer and Integrator II at USAA, where I work on front-end development and user interface design.

I have designed logos, business systems, mobile app icons, icon illustrations, posters, advertisements, newsletters, and trade show graphics, amongst other design projects. I enjoy defining brand guidelines, and I also like the challenge of designing unique projects that are within established design guidelines. I love every step of the process, from brainstorming and sketching to preparing files for print.

I take websites from concept through completion. My projects include custom content management systems, PayPal integration, mobile sites, and search engine optimization. I write my code in MacRabbit Espresso, Sublime Editor, and Adobe Dreamweaver. My favorite web technologies are PHP, MySQL, HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript. I’m also familiar with Flash, YUI, JQuery, MooTools, Sencha Touch, WordPress, ZenCart, and Wicket.

My other hobbies include 3D modeling & animation, baking, crafting, gardening, painting, photography, sewing, and video editing. I married my college sweetheart, we have two daughters and three cats.
