Welcome to the wonderful world of Helikopter Design, A Philadelphia web design studio run by resident creative James Martin. I build hand-crafted websites using all flavors of HTML, CSS, JQuery, MySql, PHP and content management systems like Textpattern and Wordpress. I also have experience in e-commerce platforms like Shopify, Big Cartel and Zen Cart. My tools of the trade include Photoshop, Illustrator and Fireworks. What does this mean for the layperson? Not a damn thing! What you do need to know is that I LOVE what I do. This is not a “job” for me, it’s a passion.The devotion for all things web-related enable me to keep up to date on the latest trends and developments, passing my knowledge on to you, the client.
Whether you are interested in an e-commerce solution, a template for your blog, a site redesign, a non-profit website, or just looking to build an online identity, I can help. I create standards compliant websites where the objective is “beauty meets practicality”. The most important thing is having a satisfying end-user experience. Visual “bells and whistles” are nice, but if your content is not easily navigable, what’s the point? I won’t bore or confuse you with technical mumbo-jumbo. I’ll communicate clearly with you in a language you can understand. Plus I’m a nice, friendly guy as well!
