Custom Website Design

Building Better Websites since 2000

Even with websites like Wix, Squarespace or WordPress that have tools that allow you to build your own website, it's still not easy to build a website that looks professional. With so many things to consider such as how to organize navigation, what images tell the best story, how to effectively use white space, making sure spacing is proportional and consistent and testing the website layout on multiple devices, it's easy to make mistakes.

Below is a before and after example of a website that I recently re-imagined. Technically, both websites are exactly the same because they have links to the business email, provide the business phone number and describe the services the business offers. However, if you saw these websites side-by-side, which one would you go to if you needed their service?

Besides the 20+ years of experience, I use an arsenal of tools such as Illustrator, Photoshop, Atom, Meteor, iTerm2, Premiere, Chrome DevTools, Google Analytics, Google Search Console, Google My Business and Dreamweaver along with modern technologies and frameworks like Sass, Bourbon, Git, GitHub, React, BEM, CSS3 and HTML5.

The most important tool that I use is attention to detail. And that's a tool that can't be purchased. You either have it or you don't.

Professional Service Options

For some people, especially those that are not building a website to represent their business, a website by Wix or WordPress may be all you need. But business websites typically need a more professional approach to make sure mistakes aren't accidently made that could hurt the first impression of potential clients or search engine placement.

It has taken many years of training, but I'm confident when I say my websites look professional, are easy to navigate and load quickly. And I focus on search engine placement from the beginning by optimizing each website so it can be easily indexed by Google, Yahoo, Bing and other top search engines and directories. More advanced SEO strategies require more effort, a lot more effort in some cases, but at least the basic structure has been optimized correctly.

It doesn't matter if you need a small 4 or 5 page website or if you need a website that may be hundreds or even thousands of pages, my attention to detail combined with over two decades of experience is the right combination to ensure your online success.

Websites for Lawyers

Law firms, more than any other profession, need a website that looks impressive. Potential customers are looking for an established and experienced attorney that will help them through a difficult time. If they aren't impressed by your website, they'll move on before you ever have a chance to tell them about your service.

Websites for Entertainers

It doesn't matter if you're a top magician headlining in Las Vegas, a comedian that travels the country, a band like Oingo Boingo or an entertainer living in Hollywood, I can build a website that shows off your talent. Such websites usually feature an event calendar that you can modify yourself, a photo gallery, online videos and press releases. I can also build a dedicated website without contact information that can be used by talent agents.
