I'm Kevin Knopp

I like to design & develop awesome websites


I'm a front-end web developer currently living in Austin, TX. There's a warm place in my heart for simple design, clean code, and all things orange. When I'm not designing or developing, I enjoy browsing the interwebs, expanding my movie collection, or playing a good game of chess.


I currently work for Level Studios, an awesome agency with a focus on customer engagement. Agency life is fast-paced and exciting, and there's always a new project right around the corner. As a Creative Engineer, I've been able to develop websites and webapps for some of the biggest brands out there, including Timberland, Folgers, and Samsung.

    Samsung Galaxy S8 Mockup

    I was flown out to New Jersey, to Samsung HQ, to work on the final touches of the site before the launch of the Galaxy S8. I also added the awesome video animations about a week after the initial launch. The final result is a really cool single page site showing off all the new features of the Galaxy S8.

    Folgers Jingle Contest

    Folgers Jingle Contest Mockup

    This project started out with a short deadline and only a few people. As the sole front-end dev, I was tasked with creating the project structure. I set up the build system using Gulp and was able to utilize ES6 into the project. As development went underway, my co-worker Lauren came on to the project and helped me flesh out most of the pages. I got to focus more on the javascript implementations, including setting up youtube playback and custom modals. The finished site looked great, and Folgers had a successful contest underway.

    Kingsburg Solar Co Mockup

    This was a freelance project that I took on for Premier Renewables, a solar company based in San Luis Obispo. After confirming wireframe concepts, I began designing the site in Illustrator and Photoshop. This project was a learning experience for me, and the design process took longer than expected due to a lot of feedback from the client. After getting approved designs, I was finally able to develop the site. Everything was built out from the ground up, and was completely responsive. I used Parsley to do some simple form validation, and Mandrill to send form responses. This microsite ended up looking pretty good, but sadly this project never ended up going live.

    Rosetta Redesign Mockup

    I got the pleasure of being able to be apart of the team that worked on Rosetta's website redesign. We had about a month to build this site from the ground up. It was built out using Kirby, a flat-file cms system. Because this website was the face of our company, I, along with two other front-end developers worked closely with our design team to make sure that this site was pixel perfect. We had to spend some all-nighters and weekends in order to make our deadline, but the end result was a beatufil new site for Rosetta.
