ABOUT ME

 

Lets see…where do I begin? My name is James Hanratty and I am 39 years old. I currently live in sunny Sarasota, Florida with my beautiful wife Amber, my 5 year old twins, Bronx and Ella, and my 2 dogs, Harley and Biggie Smalls. If I am not working, my life is usually engulfed in some kind of analog family adventure. I am a strong believer in the “Work Hard, Play Hard” mentality, because there is never an easy moment with twins!!! If I ever do get any free time to myself (usually after midnight on alternate Wednesdays and Saturday mornings if the family sleeps in), I try to squeeze in some gaming (pc > console) or  I catch up on a sneaker blog or 5.

WHAT CAN I DO

Web Development

I am skilled in most aspects of Front-End Development. Currently I am having fun playing with HTML5 and SVG animations.

Branding

I create loyal customers. I have been instrumental in helping companies create a unique image and grow their presence in each of their respective marketplaces.

SEO

I stay abreast of all current trends and industry standards.

UI/UX Design

I create cutting edge experiences. I am an “outside the box” thinker, which gives me a different perspective than most. I see what others don’t.

Marketing

I unearth and activate buyers. I create strategies that drive sales and grow brand reinforcement.

Video Production

I am capable of handling most aspects of video production. I am currently working with After Effects to learn how to build animated effects.

 

Product Development

From concept, to packaging, to launch, I have lead my teams to success and seamless integration.

Print Design

Brochures, business cards, signage, oversized banners, promotional items, show materials and product packaging.
