About Me

Hello and welcome to my website. As I stated previously, my name is Alison Fortney and I'm a web designer/developer, graphic designer and photographer. I've always had an eye for art and the skills to work with computers, so I first decided to major in graphic design.

When I was studying for my major in graphic design, I noticed that more and more industry professionals were requiring graphic designers to have some knowledge of HTML, CSS, and other web design and development components. At this point in time, I didn't know anything about web design, let alone coding, so I started exploring ways in how I could learn HTML and CSS but not neglect my major in graphic design. So I decided to study both graphic and web design.

As I've learned over the years, being able to possess both of these skills can give one an advantage, which I have experienced first-hand. I enjoy working in both print and web mediums, and my work shows that. I've also had the pleasure of working for businesses who needed both graphic design and web design/development work done, and the feedback I receive is positive.

As far as photography is concerned, it just came naturally. I started experimenting with photography when I was in college, and have enjoyed working with it ever since. I love using my camera to capture the beauty around me as I explore my surroundings. I enjoy working with photography because it allows me to see things differently. With the aid of my camera, I am able to create beautiful, visually captivating images. I especially love exploring nature and capturing its wonder.

My photos have been displayed in art exhibitions in Chicago, San Francisco, Anaheim, Seattle, Madison, and the greater Milwaukee area.I love photography, and I use my own photographs in my designs whenever possible. In fact, some of my work in graphic and web design that's displayed below features my own photography.

I've earned two Associate's Degrees - one in Graphic Design and the other in Web Design and Development.
