My name is Royce Yadav, I'm from Toronto, and I run a tiny web design company called Arden Royce Ltd. For the last seven years I've worked with Microsoft and I also moonlight as an instructor at Humber College. Additionally, I've freelanced at a number of digital agencies and I help local businesses build a stronger web presence. For inquiries call 416 986-8640, or email me here.
Create something out of nothing
I suppose this is my design philosophy. But really, I got nothing.
In addition to nothing, I dive deeper into design for the web, or is it design for a particular device? Or maybe it's evolved into designing content for the reader. I take these questions into consideration when building a site to reflect a brand's personality.
After completing a post-grad web development program several years ago, I was asked to come back only this time as an instructor. I took over one of the key front-end development courses, rebuilt it's curriculum and I am constantly refreshing the material to reflect trends in the industry.
I function as the in-house design department, wearing many different hats: Web dev, graphic artist, print designer, content expert, copy writer, digital experience strategist, Flash developer and animator, email template builder, PowerPoint editor, round-the-clock emergency fire department. When big agencies couldn't handle the load, I step in, take over projects and deliver.
I am essentially a one man band, specializing in the front-end side of web development. Working as a freelancer and an instructor, there is no choice but to stay on top of my game to stay afloat. In addition to marking up with HTML5 and CSS3, I'm also teaching myself to develop with Ruby on Rails.
