Emily Herr

Development & Design Team Lead

I am currently both the design and the development team lead at Web Design and Company. As such, I am generally involved in the day-to-day development tasks like client changes and upgrades. I am in charge of site builds and generally do most of the in-house server work that goes with maintaining our clients' sites. I would consider myself fluent in HTML and CSS / SCSS as well as PHP and I have extensive knowledge in and experience with JavaScript and jQuery.

On the design side, I do all the mock up work for a new site build, from wireframing to the final site design. I am also in charge of creating style guides and logos as they are needed. For these tasks, I will generally favor Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop, depending on the task.

Whenever I can find free time, I enjoy exploring the wonders of the great indoors by reading, seeing films on the big screen, and playing video games. I'm a big fan of Halo, Team Fortress 2, and Pokemon.


Cheat (I tended to cheat a lot in video games as a kid).


"Alright, this next test may involve trace amounts of time travel. So, word of advice: If you meet yourself on the testing track, don't make eye contact. Lab boys tell me that'll wipe out time. Entirely. Forward and backward. So, do both of yourselves a favor and just let that handsome devil go about his business." - Portal 2

Something no one knows about me

I was once ranked 23 in the world in Halo 4 for "Most Kills with the Mantis" (which is like this robot suit vehicle thing). I was one of the most average players you could meet online if it was a regular game, but if I got hold of that vehicle, stuff got real.
