Featured Client


This client, offering learning guides with movie-inspired questions, really loved the original design of her website that I did about ten years ago. And while it was working well on desktop monitors, it didn't look so good on smaller screens like phones and tablets. After discussing the situation, I explained that I could keep the desktop look while improving the visitor experience for mobile device users.

The Web has come a long way since 2007. In order to accommodate multiple devices with the same design, several changes were needed to the underlying page code for each page. It's now considered "mobile-friendly" by Google's standards and loads quickly for mobile connections.

While I was at it, I was able to improve the maintenance aspects of the website. For example, the client commented how much easier it is to update the featured guide now.
