experience


The Bolt Cutter Design team has 25+ years of combined graphic and visual arts experience.

Our two man team began Bolt Cutter Design in 2000, primarily as a print graphics design house. In 2003 we took the plunge and expanded into the "New Media" establishing a web design studio. We use freelancers and outside contractors as the project requires. We are proficient in HTML, DHTML, XHTML, and CSS. We are moderately proficient in Javascript and are actively engaged in learning XML and its sub-languages. When not eating and breathing Art, our interests include Bookbinding, Military History, Collecting European History during the Age of Empire, Russian & German Philately, and first edition books.
