ABOUT ME

I bring more than 15 years of experience in multimedia design as an experienced graphic designer, web developer, motion artist, and WordPress designer. I’ve made contributions to a wide range of industries, including jewelry, marketing, writing, hosting, music, law, healthcare, and non-profits. My multi-cultural clients and varied portfolio showcase my adaptability and skill set.

My training in digital video editing and filmmaking at the New York Film Academy expanded my view on design. Notably, I spent seven years as the Lead Designer and Contributing Writer for The Manhattan Short, the largest short film festival in the world.

My broad experience has been further enriched by the fact that my job path has led me through newspapers, publishing houses, design studios, and marketing agencies in Pennsylvania and New York.

I have completed multiple certificate programs on Coursera, Google Cloud, Udemy, Semrush Academy, University of Michigan, and LearnQuest to advance my knowledge in HTML, CSS, front-end development, and the use of AI technologies like ChatGPT, DALL·E 3, and Midjourney.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Web developer, graphic designer, and digital strategist

I’m a Web Developer and Graphic Designer with a heart and soul deeply rooted in the digital world for over 15 years. I love blending my creative flair with technical know-how to tell stories that captivate and resonate.

My Journey So Far:

I’ve led heartfelt campaigns for the National Bible Association, touching over 10 million lives from 2018 to 2020. I also gave Serum X-Y Chromosome a fresh new look, which surprisingly boosted their social chatter by 45% in just a few months in 2021.

A Nod to My Design Skills:

I’ve had the honor of being considered for ‘Best Poster Design‘ at some pretty cool film festivals, and have been recognized by the U.S. Senate Chaplain for creating his best-selling book cover.

Tech and Tools:

I’m always tinkering with the latest in AI, like ChatGPT and Bard, and I’m pretty handy with Adobe Creative Suite, WordPress, and Unbounce. I’ve got a knack for keeping brands looking sharp, optimizing for SEO, and tinkering with e-commerce.

What I’m Up To:

Right now, I’m diving into AI to make SEO and design even more awesome, working my magic for Ellis Window Fashions, and lending my skills to Gorilla House Gym and Park Avenue Concierge Medicine (PACM) on the side.

Always Learning:

I’m a bit of a knowledge junkie, with a bunch of certifications from places like Coursera and Google Cloud, and I’m always up for learning more about things like AI for Market Research and CSS3 Flexbox.

A People Person:

At the end of the day, I’m all about solving problems and connecting with people. I’m driven, sure, but it’s the human connections that make this all worthwhile.

ROAD TO SUCCESS

Nothing comes easy, Ringo Starr said “Got to pay your dues if you wanna sing the blues, And you know it don’t come easy.” Working as a freelancer has been both rewarding, and a struggle. I am determined, focused, and single-minded when it comes to my chosen profession.

Would I change anything? Not. One. Thing. Every struggle has made me even more focused, every mistake is a lesson. Luckily I have made a career of learning and growing, keeping up with current trends and technology. Onward!

Testimonials

Chris Cayden has been invaluable to me. I am an author and a blogger, and they have not only re-designed my websites in keeping with the integrity of my work, but walked me through a foreign land of technology which now feels comfortable. Chris has increased my readership with the subtleties of networking that were daunting (at first) and have now become second nature.

Stephanie Gertler

NY Times Best Selling Author

It has been my pleasure to work with Chris Cayden on multiple website and social media projects for the ‘National Bible Association’ and the ‘Citizens to Prevent and Stop Teenage Vaping’ over the past year. He demonstrates an expertise in internet operations, web development, search engines and graphic design. He has brought his skills to our organizations and has helped us to create and maintain a wonderful online presence and has aided in the global expansion of our message and our brand recognition.

Ambassador Gilbert A. Robinson (ret)

Chairman and CEO, National Bible Association

Our experience working with Chris was exceptional! He possesses the most impossibly rare and magical skillset: An unfalteringly “nuts and bolts” engineering brain in the same person as a brand-sensitive marketer with an on-point design aesthetic.

Chris dug into what our design and business goals were, and managed to exceed our fondest wish-list. All of our previous web woes are history! Our online business presence is now interactive, easy to use, and positioned to gain residual income from the slick e-commerce platform that he created.

Marshall Charloff - The Purple xPeRIeNCE

We highly recommend Cayden Media. Our aging site was large, lagging, outdated, and unable to get traction, despite a large monthly investment in advertising. Chris designed a streamlined, cutting edge, GORGEOUS replacement site that beautifully represents our business and branding. Moreover, he built our site hard-wired and coded specifically for maximum SEO visibility!

Devon Sconci

President, BRAVI SMP

Cayden Media, LLC went above and beyond for us. He didn’t just whip up a website; he put his heart and soul into crafting a space online that truly feels like “us” and our unique merchandise. Chris was a gem in this process. His creativity isn’t just by-the-books – it’s genuine, it’s thoughtful, and it shows he really gets it. Every chat with him was like talking to an old friend who just happens to be a web design wizard. But what really warmed our hearts was his real, human approach to customer service. 

Michelle Baughman

Owner, Chellz Dreamz

I have been working with Chris Cayden for 15+ years now, and I will continue to give him my business in the future. We have collaborated on web design, video, media production, marketing, and overall internet presence of several global brands, and he has developed and maintained several artists sites for me as well. He has an unparalleled knowledge of his craft, a great work ethic, and is a charming individual in general. His professionalism, and approach to web design make Chris Cayden a leader in the field.
