A fresh website is a great tool for small businesses looking to increase their presence online. Potential clients should have a fast and reliable way of getting all the information they need about your company. Your professional and dynamic new website will give your visitors a lasting impression, and give you the advantage over competitors. Using my process of discovery, information architecture, visual conception, development and internet marketing, I will provide you with a strong web presence and attractive design to connect you to your audience.

Once a design style is chosen and refined, page layouts will be developed and optimized for major sections of the website. This includes creating the HTML templates and style sheets to ensure consistency across the entire website, optimization of graphics for fast loading (without compromising quality), development of a pages, and additional secondary functionality. I develop all websites using validated HTML5 and CSS to build website pages that are accessible, viewable in modern browsers, and search engine friendly. Both my CSS and HTML are clean and minimized, using the least amount of code possible, making for smaller file sizes, easier updates and quicker page loading. The use of proper meta data ensures accessibility standards, good SEO and keyword rankings to assist in your online marketing.
Redesign & Rebranding
Businesses are constantly changing and it is important for your website to grow and change as well. Keeping your message and your content fresh keeps your visitors engaged. Web sites are not created in stone.
They can be changed, enhanced, and redesigned in order to meet the needs of your business. Many businesses start off with a limited budget and create their own small site, but once they start generating revenue they need to upgrade that site in order to continue to attract new customers. Other companies decide to add interactivity or multimedia elements to their existing site. While others just feel it’s time for a new online look for their business. No matter why you are seeking a web design alteration, I can help you. You don’t need to start completely over, I can transform your existing pages into a functional, effective site that meets your needs, presents a professional image, and serves as the foundation for your company’s rejuvenated web presence.
Creating a custom mobile website for your business is the best way to insure the best user experience for mobile visitors.
I can help you develop a website with a responsive web design (RWD) approach which uses advanced techniques to adjust the layout of a web page based on the size of the user’s viewing area. I use the same HTML to display a different web page layout for desktops, tablets, mobile devices, etc.
