Art is my inspirational fuel. From 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, media studies and storytelling.
“I am seeking a challenging, creative opportunity in an environment that is engaged and inspired by a focus for project completion and confident publishing. My experience, creativity, adaptability to software and design trends as well as an aptitude for learning 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.

If you hear a voice within you say 'you cannot paint,' then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced.

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.
Everything is designed. Few things are designed well.
For me, 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. Find your way to My Rates if you're thinking about hiring me for freelance work or Contact Me Today to start your next digital media project with a well-researched strategy.
New media's not very old, hence the word new, so we don't know a lot of things about new media and by the time you've taught it it's probably out of date. I think it's much more beneficial to have an experiential lesson versus a classroom lesson in new media.
The Rates above 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.
