Meet and Greet
Hello! My name is Tommy Ong, and I am a freelance graphic and web designer based in Jakarta
with Master’s Degree from Western Illinois University.
Microsoft Certified Professional (MCP)
with 5+ years of experience in developing website and mobile applications, designing product packaging and logo.
I love the web and enjoy using its great potential to solve business challenges.
Website is more than just pretty colors. Everything from the content, layout, navigation,
the look and feel of the design work together and influence your website’s viewers to make decisions,
such as purchasing items from your online store, making a phone call, or perhaps returning to your website.
That’s the part where I make sure that my designs are not only clean and modern, but also match with your business character.
Apart from the design, I create efficient and organized code, and always follow international web community standards (W3C).
Feel free to check out my portfolio
for more details on my work history and experience.
Do not hesitate to send me a message
to find out how my skills and services can benefit your business.
How Do I Work
My projects include four sequential stages: Q&A, Design, Coding, and Testing.
Q&A is the part where we talk about existing problems and possible solutions.
Once I get all necessary information, I will submit a project proposal that includes project timeline and budget plan.
Design stage follows when Down Payment is received.
A few mockups will be presented based on the Q&A result,
followed by Coding stage where I develop the website on a testing environment.
In the end, the website will be tested against several testing tools and procedures to make sure that it is bugs and error free.
I was born and raised in Indonesia until 2005, when I was given the opportunity to come to the United States to pursue higher education.
At Western Illinois University, I acknowledged most of my basic programming skills, web applications and database management system.
I received Master's degree in Computer Science in spring 2007.
Moved to Chicago, IL soon afterwards and started my professional career as Application Developer.
Certified as Microsoft Certified Professional (MCP) in 2008, and has been developing different kind of web applications,
e-Commerce projects, and database management system since then.
When the economy downturn hit the US in 2009, I decided to return to Indonesia and start taking freelance and in-house projects.
