Hi, I'm vlad hernandez (aka futuristicvlad)
I have a passion for the web & technology in general, always learning and studying online trends. My past agency experience has benefitted me over the years, allowing me to bring a professional level of work to small and mid-sized businesses. I'm continually developing my skills in web design & development, interactive flash animation and actionscript along with mobile design & development. This gives me a unique perspective of the fine balance between creativity and technology allowing me to build any solution that is best suited to my clients needs.
In the late '90's vlad landed a dream job with the, then small, team at Critical Mass. He would help grow the company into one of the best & brightest interactive agencies in the world. Working on some of North Americas most talented designers & worlds most notable Fortune 500 brands, vlad sharpened his talents producing some of the best and well-received web content of the day. He quickly received accolades and awards for his work, none more prestigious than the Grand Prix at the Cannes Cyber Lions for Nike iD.
perception is everything...
Web DesignOn the internet perception is everything. Want to be taken seriously? Tell me about your business & I'll make you stand out.
Web DevelopmentWith a wide range of development skills I choose whatever solution is best suited to your business needs. But always the best!
Interactive FlashI was using Flash before the internet knew what Flash was. I trained a young generation of Flash developers.
Flash AnimationMotion is one of the best ways to convey a feeling in a 2D medium. Even more so on ad banners.
BrandingImage is everything, let me help you create a brand you'll love and can't wait to show off to the world.
Print DesignYes print, despite being a 'web designer' I do have a firm grasp on what it takes to make unique print pieces.
Social MediaNot social media savvy? Wondering were to focus? I can show you what you need to know in order to succeed in the often foggy world of social media.
