About Justin Paul Silva
I create beautiful and functional websites. My goal for every site I make is to create a fresh, yet familiar experience for the end user. I began doing web design professionally in 2004 and have since moved on to other forms of graphic design and photography. I created this site to show off my work as well as to educate the web design community with tips and tricks I have and continue to picked up along the way.
In my spare time, I like to draw, which I think keeps my creativity and aesthetic sense in shape. I mainly use graphite and charcoal, but sometimes use pen & ink as well. This skill comes in handy when my clients request hand-drawn artwork as part of their designs. I have no idea how to sell artwork, but if you'd like to buy a piece you see on this site, feel free to contact me.
