Well hello! I'm Rafi, and I design websites.

My first experience developing WordPress themes was for The Commentator at Yeshiva University in 2010. After that, one by one, other student groups started coming to me for their websites. And eventually it grew into this portfolio.

If you'd like my help with a website,
please be in touch!

In the time I’ve been self-training as a web designer, I’ve been amazed by the altruism in the web development community. There are hundreds of people out there who devote time to blogs and online forums that help beginners conquer the learning curve. There’s also a ton of amazing free services and software that I couldn't do without.

I’m grateful for these services in particular that helped get me started: W3Schools.com, WordPress.org, the WordPress forums, Themeshaper, the Themeshaper forums, Inkscape, Firebug, Notepad++, FileZilla, and the many webmaster services from the folks at Google. There’s also the great advice from A List Apart, Smashing Magazine, and CSS-Tricks.

And thank YOU for bothering to visit!
