Web Site Design and Management

About Vince Yokom

I really get into my work!

Web design

I have been providing creative and technical services since 1991 when I formed Houston Desktop and Design. I started my creative career by producing product catalogs, product brochures and marketing collateral. Back then most of the graphics applications were for the Mac platform, but a few newcomers were making a scene on the PC. Companies like Corel, Aldus and Micrographics. I studied them all so that I could serve my clients regardless of the computers they used.

As more graphics and documentation applications became available for the PC, I shifted my emphasis to training. My niche training market was in the business graphics applications and a few documentation applications like FrameMaker.

I have an extensive technical background and have been doing web development for over 12 years. I spent several years writing training manuals for various graphics software and was fortunate to win several awards for those efforts. I briefly turned to e-learning and developed an award-winning training CD in 2003 for Microsoft. In addition, I also have an extensive background in database publishing and working with databases. All of that experience serves me well for web development. Please check out my web site portfolio.

For photography, I have been shooting primarily action photography for about 6 years. I have the fortunate honor to have been the past official photographer for the Miss Junior Waller County Pageant and Culture Shapers. I also handle the web media for the Waller County Fair Association. Most of my work has been dedicated to supporting the community through various projects. Just recently I had a photo take second place in the Featured Story division at the 2010 Texas Better Newspaper Contest presented by The Texas Press Association; and in 2011 for my sports photography.

For video production, I have been shooting videos professionally for about 8 years. I do most of my work using Final Cut Pro. My video experience serves my clients well as video is such a big part of the internet. Combining my design, photography and video production skills can create a great multi media site and saves my clients money.
