Being A Website Designer at GingerHippo

Congratulations on considering a career opportunity as a Website Designer with GingerHippo. Let’s start by telling you more about what this entails.

A Day In The Life Of A Website Designer

My name is Kendrick, and I am a Website Designer at GingerHippo. While I may find myself developing in a variety of platforms, most of our client work uses the Divi theme from Elegant Themes.

My work happens lightning fast with Divi, using the visual page builder that comes with the theme, leaving more time to create some serious css animations and tricks for clients. Nothing makes a client happier than having a fresh and tricked out site.
