- about me -

Hello! My name is Shaun Goeppinger and I am a web designer based in Sheffield, UK. I have been working in the fields of web design and 3D game construction for the last 8 years. After graduating with First Class Honours from Teeside University (Computer Games Art), I began working on a freelance basis providing high quality websites. It wasn't long before I was able to add a number of clients to my growing project list, including a project for Polé International De La Préhistorie (France).

I am highy proficient in a number of programing and coding skills and techniques, including but not limited to: HTML5, Javascript, JQuery, PHP, MySQL, WordPress, SEO, 3DS Max, Terragen, UnrealScript, Unreal Engine 2, Photoshop, Dreamweaver, Illustrator and...

CSS3

When not working I greatly enjoy sketching, art, reading and tropical fish keeping. I'm currently living in Sheffield, UK after spending time in the US, Chile, Spain and Germany.

Below is a visual overview of the website including some of the artwork/graphics I created for Roger-the-Alien.com. A lot of custom artwork wasn't needed for this site because of the wealth of material already available.
