Hi, I'm Danny, a problem-solver/web designer based in Phoenix, AZ. Check out my work below!

Omar Hakim

When world-renowned drummer Omar Hakim needed a new website, he turned to me and the team at Design For Good People to develop him a new website. Working closely with him, we set up a fantastic catalog to show off his prolific works, as well as any other information his fans and newcomers might want to find. Close attention was also paid to making the site work beautifully on mobile devices, as well as integrating a shop section.

Drop B Recordings

When a Brooklyn-based audio producer approached me for a new website, he asked for a smooth, modern look. With a dark look and sleek purple highlights the concept was born, and that look was carried over into every aspect of this website. This site also features a password-protected client area for demos and other files that clients would ask for.

Musical Robbery

The Kin is a Brooklyn-based band that has a very interesting promotion technique– they go into public places and commit "musical robberies" where they start playing their music to unsuspecting people. They approached me and the team at Design For Good People to develop them a single-page, single-purpose website to aggregate all their musical robberies together, along with related Tweets and Instagrams through a #musicalrobbery hashtag. This site functions perfectly on devices of any size, and is completely automated, pulling in videos and social info on its own.

Mt. Calvary Milwaukee

The Milwaukee-based church approached me, wanting a cleaner design built on Wordpress to replace their archaic custom content management system. I developed a visual concept using their logo, and then integrated Wordpress as well as importing all of the older site's existing content, in order to make the transition as smooth as possible. This site was quite a large project in terms of how many pages had to be created and carried over. Keeping the layout clean while presenting all of the information was an interesting challenge indeed.

Z-Up

One of my earlier projects, this is a custom file uploader written in PHP. The goal of this was to make a super simple one-step uploader for those moments when you need to save/upload something really quick. No signup, just upload and get your file link. This was before the dominance of Dropbox, so it seemed like a good idea. It had a small but solid following in the early days, and to this day it is still being used by a few dedicated folk.

About

My name is Daniel Zabolotny, and I'm a 21 year-old designer living in Phoenix. I've been designing and coding websites since the young age of 15, starting out as a hobby that turned into a professional passion. I started out working with XHTML and CSS2, and eventually got into Wordpress back when it was in its earlier stages. As the years went by, I incorporated the more modern advances into my design work, such as CSS3 and HTML5, as well as some Javascript. I worked freelance for a long time, making websites initially for relatives and then for independent small businesses. In 2013 I got my first taste of working in a web design studio and I loved it. It was there that I learned how to code efficiently, as well as how to effectively build websites for the rapidly growing mobile web userbase. In early 2014 I took the big step of moving from NYC to Phoenix, and so far I've really been enjoying the warm weather and nice people, it makes me much happier and even more excited to design. In addition to web design, I'm also a musician, playing guitar and bass, as well as doing audio production in my free time. As well as having a thorough knowledge of English, I am also quite fluent in Russian.
