Art is my inspirational fuel. From fandangling with finger paints to pushing pixels, art is the alpha and omega of my creative design process.
Digital Media is my vittles. It's what I grew up with and survive on. It is an opportunity to combine all my forces of digital wizardry and transmedia storytelling.
Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.
I've been building websites since 13 years old and continually evolve my approach. My professional experience (see Resume) has allowed me to keep up with the web's best practices and consistently deliver. My Portfolio also previews the web solutions I've created or been a part of.
In design man becomes what he is. Animals have language and perception as well, but they do not design.
Creating media becomes infinitely more exciting when analyzing and developing a further understanding of its effects. My unique scope on media implementation serves to inform and impassion the creation of succesful communication through design.
My Portfolio begins with deliverables from my coursework at HSU. My Resume outlines my journey through the media landscape to become a qualified creative. I've composed a short About blurb if you want to know a little more about who this Noah character is; and The Gallery will show you my art.

Journalism is a craft that takes years to learn. It's like golf. You never get it right all the time. It's a game of fewer errors, better facts, and better reporting.
I am seeking a challenging, creative opportunity with a firm working and growing in an environment that is engaged and inspired by a focus for project completion and confident publishing. My experience, creativity, adaptability to software / design trends and being apt to learn have been paramount in my career successes.
Noah Cannon is a Digital Media Creative and recipient of a B.A. in Journalism with an emphasis in Media Studies from Humboldt State University. Art and design with computers have served as an integral part of his life both personally and professionally. He has developed a media skill-set capable of providing clarity, information, guidance and focus to the design and delivery of solid media solutions with follow-through.
He loves to inspire as well as be inspired and is always looking forward to what's next. Discussions on branding, strategic planning on the implementation and creation of campaigns through feedback and metrics or the intersection of design, technology and demographics are the kind of topics that get him buzzing with excitement.
Having just moved back to his home town (Cambria) with the love of his life (other than computers) Shay; Noah knows life away from the monitor can be an allusive construct and tries to spend his spare moments enjoying the outdoors with Her and other compatriots. Occasionally enjoyed in leau of outdoor activity are stints of media consumption (mostly documentaries), PC gaming and playing with their amazing cat Poogle.

The Rates below are set hourly rates that will be used to estimate project costs. All estimates are project-basis quotes and include at least 2 free revisions. After a Free Initial Consultation to establish the project's scope, paramaters, resources, expenses, purpose and goals, a project estimate will be provided and once approved, the project can move into the Design Phase.
A 1/3 deposit (1/2 for non-web site projects) is required to commence the Design Phase. I will provide draft images of the project. At this point feedback is encouraged and any ideas or changes you would like to see before we move to the Development Phase. In the case of non-website projects, when the design is approved the appropriate files will be sent to you for distribution pending the final 1/2 payment.
Moving a website into the Development Phase requires a 1/3 deposit to continue. The website is developed and launched to a preview location. Content and photographs will be integrated and you will be able to view remotely from your computer a "live" functioning website. You can email or call for final changes or corrections. 3 free revisions are allowed for web site development. Once the website is approved the final 1/3 payment is required.
