About this pro
Meeting Gary and retaining him to design a complicated start-up application was professional luck. From the start, Gary did a great job - understanding the concept and our needs, executing the design, clarifying our expectations (especially clarifying our lack of design technologies), and eventually delivering a timely and professional product that exceeded all expectations and was within the budget. I would not hesitate to use Gary for additional design work - and, I probably will.Feb 13, 2014
Gary Harding is a joy to work with. He is terrifically skilled in all things computer and works quickly and efficiently, bringing a wealth of passion for both accuracy and artistry. Gary designed all the graphics and displays for our first Conscious Music Fest 2013 here in San Diego. I am now working with Gary once again to create our new SDCMF 2014 website.Feb 6, 2014

- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I'm a learning junkie. I never stop learning new things and from every aspect of the business. While I'm always learning to improve my technical skills and knowledge, I'm very interested now in online marketing; both the technical and the higher level of how to really connect with your target market and position yourself, your product or service as the thing that solves their need.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I was the Secretary for Graduate Programs at a University and they taught us how to do web design so that we could maintain our department's pages, and I just took off it with immediately. I later went back to school for graphic design, and then got an even better job combining web and graphic design.
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?I would look at all of the provider's work and try to understand their level of involvement:look, at the quality of the work, the writing, how focused the message or the marketing goals were in each piece.
