I'm Bob Carr, a web designer in Knoxville, Tennessee, and the owner of Big Creek Creative. I like to make web stuff.

I've worked in this field for about 15 years, and one thing I've learned is that web design is far more than "making things pretty," although that's a common misconception. In fact, every project I've been a part of has required a range of tools not unlike a Swiss army knife. Graphic design is part of it, but more often, my job as a web designer requires a broad range of technical proficiency in HTML, CSS, JavaScript, a strong understanding of the relationship between these client-side technologies and server-side environments for dynamic web applications. It requires an ability to synthesize requirements and collaborate with colleagues and stakeholders to develop visual solutions. Some of the many tools and capabilities I use in my role as a web designer are listed below.
