ShermanVision is the creative enterprise of Paul Sherman.
Defying those that considered the Internet a “fad,” and succeeding the dot-com bubble, Paul has been designing and building websites professionally since 1995. Paul launched his career selling Web services door-to-door to small businesses. His first big assignment was with a large advertising firm where he led the visual design of websites for corporate giants such as Mobil Oil, Washington Redskins and DeWalt Tools. In 2001 he was brought on with Nextel Communications to lead the implementation of their new corporate website design. In 2003 he was hired by the Department of Veterans Affairs to support the user-interface development of a $50M online health service. While maintaining his career, Paul graduated summa cum laude, earning a Bachelor of Fine Art degree in digital art and animation. Before becoming self-employed, he was on assignment for six years with the Department of Defense as the lead designer for the department website.
So, what makes us different?
ShermanVision applied for a business license in January of 1995. Now, we didn’t become an overnight sensation, mind you. It actually took about 20 years to gain the confidence and client-base to go full-time. During that time, however, we gained tremendous experience in a wide variety of environments, working with many different people.
The founder of ShermanVision had the opportunity to work in several types of businesses as well as with several types of clients. Paul was employed and contracted with federal agencies for many years. He developed sites for associations. He even worked for an advertising agency. Now, all his efforts are in bringing all that experience to small business owners just like you.
Paul has a Bachelor of Fine Art degree in digital art and animation. In his spare time he likes to do 3D animation. The web is a very technical environment and demands technical skill as well. Before WordPress and other freely available tools, Paul was up late nights creating his own content management systems – from raw code. One of them is still in use today!
Awards & Recognition
Working with you Paul was an unknown world for me. I had no idea what developing a website was all about. But, you were able to listen to my heart and design a site that was more than my words could convey. The site is more moving, powerful and meaningful than I could have pictured. You took my words and photos and created an image that is more glorious for our Lord, than I could have expected.
This looks so beautiful I could cry. I LOVE all the liberties you took… little dynamic things that brought the design to a new level.
I’ve been smiling all week, ear to ear, every time I look at my new website! I’m so proud to send people to it. Thank you again for helping me to do in just a couple weeks what I have been stressing over doing myself for the last 2 years. :)
