How Gibson Started Making Websites
Gibson began making websites in 1999 for his pop-punk band, The Crimson Monkeys. Knowing the band needed a website in order to become famous, Gibson set out to learn how to make this happen by reading HTML and Photoshop books. Soon, his fun and friendly websites were shared around the community and Gibson began making websites for more bands, small businesses, and local organizations.
Since then, Gibson has worked on more than 50 websites for brands of all shapes and sizes — including Academy Sports + Outdoors, Kirby Ice House, Gallery Furniture, Star Pizza, and Waste Management. Gibson has served as a graphic designer, web coder, programmer and manager of all strategies pertaining to these brands' websites for Houston's premier advertising, public relations, and creative agencies. He's spent more than half of his life working professionally in the marketing and creative business community. Before joining The Home Depot, Gibson was Creative Director for Decode Digital, an award-winning digital agency based in Houston.
He's had a large focus on Ecommerce, Accessibility (ADA Compliance), User-Centered Design, Front-End Design, and Content Management Systems.
Gibson currently serves as Senior Manager, User Experience at The Home Depot. In addition, Gibson helped launch and grow an Award-winning arts program painting traffic control boxes throughout Houston with UP Art Studio called The Mini Murals Project; is a Digital Ambassador and Influencer for the City of Houston, Houston First, Greater Houston Partnership, Mayor's Office of Cultural Affairs, and Museum of Fine Arts Houston; Freelances websites, logo design, and social media strategy.
