About Riven Design
The idea for Riven Design came from my desire to move beyond the perceived limitations of web design while maintaining the integrity of the projects.
Riven Design is a company based out of West Fargo, ND but I have national experience ranging from Seattle, WA to Washington, DC. The oft touted phrase of "No job is too big or too small" applies to Riven Design. In print media, I have done jobs as small as designing business cards to promotional materials for corporations with large constituencies. My web experience ranges from redesigning personal blogs to corporate and government websites.
I have more than 20 years of graphic/web design experience. This includes working independently and as an in-house designer in corporate, government, and educational settings. For the last 10 of those years I have been working on projects that comply with State and Federal accessibility requirements including Section 508 compliance, WCAG 1.0 and WCAG 2.0.
"Graphic Design is, to me, a blending of Art and Communication. Creating an effective and interesting framework with which to present information. As a Graphic Designer I have to be both an artist who can visualize a design, and a technician who can bring that design to life. It is an odd combination of artistic inspiration and technical know-how, a graphical jack-of-all-trades." - Douglas Tschetter, Owner/Developer
