Creative Impressions Web Design (CIWebDesign.com) is a doing business as name for freelance graphic artist/web designer, Connie J. Burianek.
I started CIWebDesign.com in 1999 in response to people asking me for design services after seeing several sites I had designed purely for the sake of learning and as a creative outlet. Even today, most of my clients are referrals.
I work one-on-one with my clients to find a design(s) that expresses a customers' unique personality and mission to create a presence that is individualized. Since my work is one-on-one on custom designs which are done entirely myself, I take limited clients and strive to make sure that my clients and I are a good fit for each other.
All designs are custom made on a per-customer basis. Designs are initially developed in either Adobe Photoshop or Adobe Illustrator. Once a design is agreed upon, the design is coded into a working web site or delivered to the customer for print purposes.
Recently, I'm finding many customers who have started out using basic templates on their own and now want a more customized professional look. In many cases, if the templates are implemented well, this can be done without completely redoing the site from the ground up.

I have a rather unusual background for doing graphic design. Despite having a long interest in photography and graphic design, I graduated from the University of Arizona in 1993 with a BS in Engineering Mathematics and Nuclear Engineering. From 1993-1997 I was an officer in the US Navy and taught Calculus, Differential Equations and Nuclear Physics at the Navy Nuclear Power School. In 1997, I was honorably discharged from the Navy and became a stay at home mom. I have since expanded my graphic art, photography, website and computer (PC) experience and for select customers, I also offer computer maintenance services as well as IT consulting.
