Create your space on the web

Website Design

Every business is an online business

With most of the world virtual or distanced these days, your website is just as important as a physical location. Having a clear, action-oriented website can help boost your ranking on Google search results, connecting you with more customers faster and boost your sales.

Responsive websites

Designed to fit every screen

Unless you're a designer like me, it's unlikely that your customers are glued to a desktop screen. They're likely on-the-go, on a phone or tablet. Websites today need to be designed to look great and function the same no matter what device the user has.

Form & function

Content-driven websites

Yes your website should look visually stunning. But if the messaging is confusing and pages difficult to navigate, you're frustrating your customer and losing potential sales. The best websites focus on the core messaging, then use visuals to enhance what you'd like the customer to do on your website.

My design process

01.

Kickoff  with a strategy meeting

Planning makes perfect! I always start with a meeting so we can get to know each other. I'll ask questions to determine what website requirements you're looking for, and you can ask me any questions you may have. We'll set a deadline and I'll get to work.

02.

Create the site architecture, content outline and write the copy

Based on our meeting, I'll start planning out the website structure. By creating the site architecture and content outline, I'm able to determine the number of pages and what sections make up each page. Then once that's finalized, my copywriter will type up keyword-rich content to boost your SEO rankings from the start.

03.

Design the website theme and graphics

With the plan and written content in-hand, I can start designing the theme. Like building a house, I start by framing out the pages, placing the content blocks without graphics to distract from the user experience flow. After the wireframe is complete, I bring the prototype design to life by adding the logo, graphics, fonts and colors. The final step is to link all of the pages together into an interactive prototype for review.

04.

Review, Develop & Launch

We'll meet to review the interactive prototype design to make sure my design solution checks all of your boxes. If we need to make some tweaks or changes to the design or written content, this is the perfect time. Then once the design is approved, development can begin. Depending on the platform, the development time can take 2–8 weeks. After that, the website will launch and be ready to share with the world.

Choosing the right tool for the job

You don't always need to go with a fancy, expensive website at the beginning. Sometimes a simple educational website is all you need to get your company some exposure online.
