Welcome to designmelody, the official online portfolio of Melody Deyerle. Here, you will find a showcase of my work in web development and graphic design.


I would be interested in learning about your project.


About My Work

My work includes web design, web development, logos, web banners (static and interactive Flash), and print media.

A great design not only looks good, but is intuitive to use. The engine behind it is scalable, semantic, and maintainable.

I use best practices and keep up with industry standards for consistency in design and experience, plus optimization on various levels -- in load speed for a great user experience and in accessibility for people and search engines alike.

My core web development skills include HTML, CSS, JavaScript, jQuery, Ajax, Php, SQL, XML, and XSLT. On the design side, I am proficient with Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and Fireworks.

About Me

My strength is my understanding of both the design side and the development side.

I enjoy the creative aspects of design and development and have been working professionally in the web development and user experience design industry since the beginning of 2004.

My educational background consists of a BS in Mathematics and Computer Science from the Colorado School of Mines. I also have a MS in Engineering and Technology Management from the same university.

As part of my education and programming background, I've worked with languages such as C++, Java, ASP.NET, Perl, and ColdFusion and have experience with 3D modeling (graphics and simulation), linear programming, and optimization.

This has left me with an understanding of great back end design, including scalability and maintainability.
