Welcome! Ryszard (Rick) Gold of The Stem has been doing digital media in some form or another for 20 years. Over that time, he has found his own style and formed certain design standards that he adheres to in all of his work. One of The Stems firm beliefs is that any web designer or graphic artist should be just that, an artist. What Ryszard used to do with a paint brush and canvas he now does with a mouse and keyboard. Anyone can take a course in how to use Photoshop or how to program HTML, but it takes creativity to make a project that truly communicates.
At the same time the creativity needs to be balanced by the technical skills to be able to run the applications and program the code. Ryszards technical ability as well as artistic skills has allowed him to make advanced websites that not only look good, but provide a great user experience.
