Here's a little about my background. (You can read about my design philosophy, and why I might be a good fit for your business here.)
I'm Whitewolf Design's web developer and copywriter. For quite a few years I had a team of developers, but felt I couldn't maintain the level of quality I wanted associated with my brand that way. I still hire people to help me with monotonous tasks like content migration and some of the day to day webmaster work, but I personally do all the content writing and web development.
You're hiring me; not an underpaid labourer in a third world country. Most so-called web designers and developers are only brokers, who outsource the entire job offshore. I write any required code, meticulously commenting the code for future reference, and I am completely hands on for the entire build. I'm also a graphic designer and photographer. Because I understand every step of the project, from the ground up, I will be here to make any changes and upgrades when you need them.
I graduated with a photographic arts degree in 1983, and began a career in 'art and copy' in 1987, working in the magazine publishing industry in the paste-up department. Within a few months I had advanced to become the lead designer and editor for one of the publications. I've been designing marketing materials and writing copy for 31 years.
Whitewolf Design originated in 1996 as White Wolf Airbrush. The name "white wolf", incidentally, comes from a nickname I picked up while working for two seasons as an ice road trucker, based out of Tuktoyaktuk, NWT. As an illustrator, I airbrushed everything from t-shirts to race cars, Harleys and wall murals; but that all changed when I purchased his first Wacom tablet/'digital airbrush' in 1997.
In February 1997, the shift was made from print to web design, under the name Whitewolf Design Co. In the early years, I had more time, and taught internet marketing and web design courses at a college level. Copywriting, content marketing strategy and SEO became a very important part of the business, and in 2007 it was decided that the SEO and content marketing division of the business would be branded as Cole Wiebe, Art & Copy, focusing on the Vancouver market, while Whitewolf would continue to be the Squamish web design and internet marketing business. Whitewolf Design has become an international firm, and I've worked with clients across North America and as far away as England.
