Designing Your Site
Most of my sites are created for individuals who own a small business and would like a way to offer their products to customers online. I also do many sites for educational organizations.
I take a personal interest in every site, and it is not finished until we are both happy with the design and content. Of course, a site is never actually finished, which is why Web display is so much more flexible than print display. Updates and changes can be done easily and quickly.
I will ask you many questions before I actually begin to design the site. I first need to know how you want to divide up the information you are presenting. These divisions will often be the pages for the site. I also need to find out if you have a specific theme or design in mind. If you don't, we can come up with one.
Color is important, so I take the time to give you some sample color schemes to choose from. If you have a logo or photo you want to use, we can take the color from that. If you need a logo, I can create one for you.
Content and Purpose
Attention to Detail
There are many backend details that a careful designer should pay attention to. Images should never dominate a well-designed site because they can be distracting and cause users to have to wait too long to see the page.
I compress all images to make sure they are small enough to prevent delays in page loading, while still retaining their beauty and purpose. I take pride in the fact that my sites have valid code that is compatible with a variety of browsers. I also make sure that the site has code that is accessible to search engines.
Pride in Work
I only create sites that make my customers proud. If you don't love your site, I am not happy with it. I want your site to be easy to use and navigate and visually beautiful.
