I've immersed myself in the web design world
I'm proud to say that I've gotten many things wrong to get them right with a bit of 'trial and error' thrown in for good measure too. I started young and earned my stripes.
From start to finish I can be there to support your ideas and to bring them to life. Below is a quick peak of just some of the things I will happily do.
I build websites from scratch, none of that Dreamweaver stuff. Not that I'm against it but I prefer a stripped back approach. I use Coda as my application to write my code and I'm very well versed in CSS and HTML.
I also use php and MySQL on projects that need a backend if you're looking for something a bit bespoke. I've built websites using Wordpress and being confident in front and back end design I can easily work on the intricacies of the Wordpress setup.
All websites I build are there to be used by whoever has an internet access; from desktop, to tablet to even a Nintendo DS, I don't care what they use, even a fridge with access to the web. I want them to be able to access the content that's on a website. I aim to have sites accessible as much as possible, no holding back.
To compliment a website and to build upon your online strategy I design HTML Emails from scratch. The emails are made to engage with your customers, provide them with content they need and to drive traffic to your website.
The corner stone of good website design. I see SEO as three parts; on page, off page and technical. Work on all these and you're good. I'm not going to spout on about good headers, anchors and all that because for me, well, it's a given.
A site needs good structure and pages need a clear distinction of what they are about. Backlinks are the secret weapon here and you get that by creating content that people like and want to share.
There's a crucial ingredient that I need and without it I can't help at all. We have a relationship when working together and the projects that have been really successful are the ones where both parties are happy. If you need someone in your corner to be a champion of your website then we should work together.
