Featured Client

Wichita Wealth Management

Jeff, a certified financial planner, decided to create a new website for his evolving business. His experience was with FrontPage. Although FrontPage and Expression Web have very different user interfaces, he wanted something he could use without too much new learning that would give him the same type of capabilities he had with FrontPage.

I used Expression Web, with some help from PHP (supported in Expression Web), for the new design. Jeff gave me the framework of how he wanted it to look. I offered suggestions, then designed the new website and created initial page drafts. This meant Jeff didn't have to learn the latest design technologies and information (for example: style sheets, mobile-friendly designs, HTML5, etc.).

With a little remote one-on-one training, Jeff took over to update text and images. He keeps a copy of his website on his computer and publishes changes as needed to the website server.

After almost a year, he called to ask a question and emphasized his willingness to be a reference for my services. My clients are terrific!
