Our Principals

Richard Hodyl

With over 25 years of experience in the printing and graphic arts industry, Richard has extensive knowledge of the entire process, from design to print. Knowing what it takes produce the finished product complements his creative eye for design. His expertise in print is a value to our customers, because the ability to identify problems before a job goes to press is not something you can learn in a graphic design class. He is involved with designing a variety of projects for Fox Valley Webworks such as websites, corporate identity, brochures, catalogs, custom illustrations and everything in between.

Richard earned a A.A.S. Degree in Photo Offset from Triton College and furthered his studies with additional graphic design classes.

Miro Hodyl

Miro discovered his artistic ability during his early years of grammar school. He has been practicing computer graphic design and computer programming since the late eighties. Miro was also the creator of WarMaker , a freeware random map generator for the Blizzard video game Warcraft II.

Prior to co-founding the company and undertaking its responsibilities full time, he had worked for nine years at a bio-medical firm as an electronics technician and later as a software engineer. He also designed and maintained the company website which received unsolicited praise from Daniel Janal, author of "How to Publicize High Tech Products and Services", "Online Marketing Handbook", and "101 Businesses You Can Start on the Internet". The site was also selected by MSNBC Business Video to be used as the example site for their video product.

Miro graduated Summa Cum Laude from DeVry University with a B.S. degree in Technical Management and also holds an A.A.S. degree in Electronics Technology/Systems from Triton College.

"Thank you, thank you, thank you for the new custom form on the website! It took me awhile to play around with it to get our formatting perfected - AND to finally spend the time to figure out how to get things emailed from the website - but it's working wonderfully now!

It is just what we needed to put our Auction Gift Cards online to be filled out and sent to the team leaders in one simple step. It should simplify our Auction process greatly, getting the gift cards completed, turned in to the Team Leader, and then sent to the database person, and, hopefully, help our members turn in their gift cards in a more timely manner!

I am very excited about the new custom forms and when I announced it at our last club meeting - our members greeted the new online gift card with applause, which is unusual!

The custom form is just what we needed for our purposes! Thank you so much."
