Website Design & Development
I am not accepting new clients at this time.
Many clients come to me with an older website they maintain. In most cases, they want to update the design to be mobile-friendly with a more modern look. I collaborate with them to design a new look and feel that allows them to still maintain the content. Read more about my Design services …
Functionality (including contact forms, PayPal interfaces, product databases, etc.) can improve a visitor's website experience. I help clients improve existing capabilities. Also, I've given their websites new capabilities, with a focus on enhancing their customers' experience or making it easier for them to maintain. Learn about my Development services …
Content — text and pictures — is aimed at the website's target audience. As my clients' businesses change, their website content needs to be updated. When my clients prefer not to do the ongoing updates themselves, I update existing pages or create new ones as needed. For details, refer to my Maintenance services …
Websites can be complicated. I've helped my clients translate the techno-speak about servers, domains, and specific tools. Clients who want to manage their own website and need a little help in learning how or have a specific problem to address have used my Coaching services ….
Chase "2" Driving School
This Connecticut driving school came to me several years ago with an older, FrontPage-based website. They wanted a design they could maintain with Expression Web, and they wanted it to work well on mobile devices.
I redesigned their site, then migrated their content. One of the features we added was the ability to maintain their class dates in a file separate from the web page. I provided them reference documentation so they wouldn't have to learn all about Expression Web — only enough to make their text changes periodically and publish the changes.
In 2020, the client asked if I could jazz up their site a bit to appeal to their target audience: teens learning to drive. I added more color blocks, modified the look of the buttons to give the sense of forward movement and action, and worked with the clients to get their main message — how to contact them — as prominent and easy to use as possible on both desktop and mobile devices. The client's business increased after we did this, meaning these changes were successful!
Currently, this client contacts me for small design changes, to streamline new tasks, and for additional coaching on their changes.
