Website Development

I design websites that help businesses grow.

A website should:

  • check_circle Solve unique business problems.

  • check_circle Meet or exceed the needs of your business and customers.

  • check_circle Be accessible on any device.

  • check_circle Offer a means of communication between you and your customers.

  • check_circle Tell your businesses story in a way that drives sales and expands reach.

With every project I work on, these principles guide my design and development. Everything I place on a design has a specific purpose.

"A website will promote you 24/7, no employee will do that."

I'll keep it simple. Four steps to your website.

  • 1. Together we identify what problems you'd like the design to solve and set appropriate business goals.

    2. I put together a mockup that incorporates everything we discussed in step 1. This will give you a rough idea of what your site will look like and how it will function.

    3. Once you sign off on the mockup, we discuss business details and development begins.

    4. Development is finished and your site is deployed.

See, simple, redesign or new design, it doesn't matter, I got you covered.

  • addHow much will it cost?
    The answer can vary greatly from project to project. Some factors include time, number of features, type of features, mobile-friendliness, etc.

    To give you an accurate estimate, I'll need to know more information about your specific project and the value it will add to your business.

    However I always aim to deliver a solution that helps your business grow beyond what you invest into my design and development services.
  • addHow long will it take?
    It really depends on the scope of work to be done. I've designed and built entire websites from scratch in as little as 2 weeks while others can take 3-5 months.

    I will work with you to determine the scope of your project and estimate how long it will take to complete.

    I am what you would call a "full stack developer", meaning I handle the user interface (look & feel) and the functionality (logic).

    Most freelancers handle one or the other, I handle both.

    I also handle the copy, images, colors, that are on the page, unless you have these resources pre-designed. So instead of working with multiple people for different sections, it's just me.

  • addHow much control do I have over the design?
    Absolute control. If you have any design requests or a specific look in mind, then I will do my best to accommodate that.

    However, keep in mind that I have your best interest in mind. So if you have a certain design decision that I feel may go against your goals, or may hinder your users experience, I will certainly let you know.

    Again ultimately you have the final say, but I will do my best to give my recommendation when necessary.
  • addWhat if I want to make changes when development starts?
    Not a problem, I use a tool called Asana, it's a project management platform. When a project is started I invite my client to my project board on Asana and there he/she is able to see the development plan. You be able to ask questions directly on the board and see what has been finised, what I am working on now and what's to come.
  • addWhy not use a pre-made theme or template?
    Pre-made themes and templates are a great way to keep costs down, but it's important to remember that generic pre-made theme or template can't always solve problems that are specific to your business.

    In order to truly acquire more users, increase sales, or drive more leads, you'll need a custom strategy, marketing, design, or development solution. That's what I specialize in.
  • addHow do I know your work will help my business grow?
    Unfortunately, no designer or developer can ever guarantee results. For example, a failed marketing campaign could ruin a perfectly good website.

    However, my goal-oriented process has been designed to meet real business needs for my clients.

    Would you rather work with someone focused on selling time and pixels or someone focused on helping your business flourish?

    If together we cannot find a way for your business to see a return on investment, I will recommend that we do not work together on your project.
