Website Design

I am a Wordpress designer and developer.

I build websites for a wide variety of clients.

Form, function and design must work together.

Good UX/UI design principles are paramount.

See my portfolio page for examples of my web design work.

A Brief Bio

The Patrick Houston Design Studio opened its doors in 2005. After 20+ years in the Advertising Agency business in Little Rock, Arkansas, I was compelled to make a leap of faith and open my own graphic design studio. It has been an interesting and rewarding journey, and I am approaching my 10 year anniversary.

I’ve been fortunate to have the opportunity to do solid work for clients across the country, both large and small. Many of those clients have been with me from the very beginning. I have also been fortunate to have the love, support and encouragement of my beautiful and talented wife, Kyran.

I am a dedicated husband and father. I also count myself  fortunate to have had the opportunity to work from home while the boys are young. But they aren’t so young anymore. Alden is in his sophomore year of high school, Jonah is in eight grade of middle school and Carey is a fifth grader, still in elementary school.

I am confident that I can put my talent and skill to profitable use for your business. My goal is to assist you in putting your best foot forward, to present your business or service in the best possible light.

I look forward to the opportunity to meet with you and discuss my qualifications in person.
