DAMIEN KOMALA

DESIGNER - DEVELOPER - PHOTOGRAPHER - VIDEOGRAPHER - SURFER

ABOUT ME

Visual artist and website developer for over 20 years. Ohio native. By my estimate, I could survive approximately 12 days in the wild by relying on my keychain attachments alone. Surfer, rock climber, Jeep off-roader, drone pilot, photographer / videographer, editor, bacon enthusiast. Years of experience in the design and development field have given me a wealth of knowledge. I’ve designed and built sites for countless clients around the world from restaurants to resorts, online e-commerce sites to simple brochure sites. I'm prepared to take on even the most complicated projects and always love a challenge. Additional experience includes PPC, SEO, site planning, jQuery, PHP, CSS, social media marketing, email marketing, package design, branding, project management and the list keeps on going. Let me know if there’s anything I can help you with.

TESTIMONIALS

With many of my clients, I "know" what I want my web projects to be- and for many of them, like my own, I will design them. Its just much easier for me to hire someone to really make them work. Damien is who I call, because he constantly absorbs the latest and greatest technologies and tricks and stores them all in his head- without his head or his ego expanding to compensate. And I mean that! Many times I have given Damien incomplete information, whether from just not having it or not expressing everything in my head, and despite this, he goes for it and fills in the gaps with his own common sense. And its usually right on the mark- if not inspirational for solving the other parts I dont know yet. Sometimes we find that indeed my mind was going else where. He listens, and comes back with something totally different and is open to changes if needed. He doesnt take them personally.This is one talented guy, and I get excited when I hear about new projects that I know he can do.

Working with Damien is a professional pleasure. Damien is extremely knowledgable and patient. As a seasoned designer there isn't much Damien hasn't done. Whether it's hand coding sites or designing print ad work, he's had extensive experience with all aspects of design. I highly recommend working with Damien if you want a professional job done right.

Here's a quick video of our second day out north side of the pier in Huntington Beach. Waves were much, much bigger so the drops were way more fun. You really had to watch what you were doing or you could seriously get worked on the inside.

Perfect trip out to the desert up in Trona, California. We were actually racing the sun on the way up there, trying to get there in time to set up camp before dark set in. We barely made it and found a perfect spot for the whole crew. The winds the

Probably the most lackluster birthday I've ever had. I did nothing but move the entire weekend + Monday (my 40th birthday). Bishop and I made our way down to G's Boathouse for lunch but other than that, really I did nothing fun. Hopefully I'll have
