My name is Rafal Tomal and I live in the Chicago Suburbs. I’m the Lead Designer at Copyblogger Media.
Designing and developing Genesis child themes is my day job. I’m a part of StudioPress’ development team and you can find many of my themes on the StudioPress site.
I specialize in website design tasks and focus on clean, simple, and functional styles in everything I produce. I’m passionate about my work and enjoy spending long hours on small details in my designs and producing work that is as perfect as I can make it.
Thanks to my position at Copyblogger Media,
I have had the opportunity to work with successful bloggers and entrepreneurs like:
Brian Clark, Brian Gardner, Chris Brogan, Chris Garrett, Darren Rowse, Jay Baer, Jay Thompson, and many others.
The experience I gained in the last couple of years taught me how to create an effective blog design that works and converts.
I want to share my experience and knowledge with you through my articles and free resources on this website. I hope you can learn from me as much as I can learn from you.
I was born and raised in beautiful southeastern Poland. I’ve been working as a freelance web designer since I was a teenager.
I never wanted to go to college. I chose a different path and started living on my own in a new country. I decided to move to the USA right after graduating high school to start my real professional career as a web designer.
After a few months I got my first job as a designer in a local web design company. It took me two and a half years to decide to quit my day job and start my own freelance business. Having some savings to cover my living expenses for the next few months, I was sure I was doing the right thing.
That was the most difficult but also the best decision of my life. It afforded me opportunities to meet many great people, improve my skills and enjoy new experiences. It wasn’t easy, but, best of all, it brought me to where I’m now.
Thanks to this amazing journey, I’ve learned that only hard work and dedication can make our dreams come true.
