Web Revamp founder Bernard Arias brings an architect’s eye for design and detail to every website he creates.
With many years of experience—and training in architecture and computer science—Bernard expertly builds sites from the foundation up, getting every technical detail in place, and then the fun begins—picking out the colors, the theme, the style, the voice—all part of a collaborative process. The end result is a custom website that evokes the personality of each client, whether it is an education organization, a creative professional, an arts organization, or a non-profit. Those clients can then rely on Web Revamp for expert maintenance to keep the site up to date.
Bernard has been interested in art ever since he was a child growing up in the Central Valley of California, where his first job was picking grapes. He recalls, in his earliest memory as an artist, drawing colorful pictures inspired by flowers embroidered on a family quilt. He later went on to study architecture at UC Berkeley with a practical goal in mind: Someday designing his own dream house, which he did in 2005, in San Francisco’s Castro neighborhood, where he lives with his partner, John.
In his early jobs, he happened to be “the most technically savvy person” in the workplace, which led him to take classes in computer science, also at Berkeley, and he was naturally drawn to new Web technology, building his first website in 1993 for San Francisco International Airport Museum.
