I solve problems with creative solutions

My process to solve the problem

Some answers to my most common questions!

Web design refers to the design of websites that are displayed on the internet. It usually refers to the user experience aspects of website development rather than software development. Web design used to be focused on designing websites for desktop browsers; however, since the mid-2010s, design for mobile and tablet browsers has become ever-increasingly important.

A web designer works on the appearance, layout, and, in some cases, content of a website. Appearance, for instance, relates to the colors, font, and images used. Layout refers to how information is structured and categorized. A good web design is easy to use, aesthetically pleasing, and suits the user group and brand of the website. Many webpages are designed with a focus on simplicity, so that no extraneous information and functionality that might distract or confuse users appears. As the keystone of a web designer’s output is a site that wins and fosters the trust of the target audience, removing as many potential points of user frustration as possible is a critical consideration.

Web Designers create and build websites and web pages by combining any number of visual design elements including text, photos, graphics, animations and videos. A Web Designer could create a brand new website or simply make updates to the design and layout of existing pages.

While you could in theory get your domain and hosting on your own, I recommend letting me and my expertise and specific education help you in making the decisions and design choices for your business. I have created, designed, implemented and optimized over 1,500 projects for over 10 clients, with success that shows in their monthly views and revenue gains.

Web Designers are not primarily responsible for knowing how the code works that underpins their designs — but instead their focus is creating aesthetically pleasing and that users have a positive user experience when they visit the website. Web Designers might use programming languages like HTML, CSS and JavaScript, will utilize graphic design software — including products like Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and GIMP — to aid in creating eye-catching design, and they will test their designs through the construction of prototypes and wireframes.

I typically design a website using WordPress CMS and Elementor Pro page builder. Along with other specific HTML & CSS stylings.

The most disgusting & disappointing lie I have ever heard was when my first client explained they had been told that web designers were a rip-off and that they cost an arm-and-a-leg to get anything viable done by them.

I have made it my business plan to bring AFFORDABLE custom web design to other small businesses and individuals that couldn’t otherwise afford a super corporations fees. I pride myself in still only charging a set amount per month while the cost of everything else goes up and up. My clientele that sell things online QUICKLY make back what I am paid per month, and probably don’t even notice the expense when looked at yearly!

Written Copy
As much as Web Designers need to concern themselves with esthetics, your written content is absolutely essential to the success of your design. Not only will that go a long way toward determining your place in search results, it’s also what most users are after when they come to your site. The writing should be direct, informative, and concise.

Fonts
Many of us read without even considering the typography, but whether we’re conscious of it or not, your fonts are a very important part of your overall design. If you haven’t before, start paying attention to the fonts you see. Check out iconic businesses and consider why they chose the typography that they did.

Colors
With limitless options, selecting a color can be downright daunting. Would your site look better with a monochrome color design – where a single color is used as the base with varying degrees of saturation, brightness, and various hues – or a complementary design that pairs two colors on opposite sides of the color wheel? Whatever you decide, consistency is important.

Layout
In many ways, the useability, functionality, and visual appeal of your website will be determined by how you choose to arrange your content. There are no hard-and-fast rules with regard to layout, but be sure to keep your target audience in mind and make sure the layout is intuitive to use.

Shapes
Incorporate graphic elements in your design to provide a huge boost to your website’s overall appearance. Eye-catching colors and shapes used together can help direct the attention of your audience’s visit to your website.

Spacing
To create a visually impressive website that’s natural to navigate, spacing is key. Using whitespace appropriately is essential in creating a design that keeps text, photos, and graphics in perfect balance. Using whitespace consistently and expertly will make your site a breeze to navigate.

Images and Icons
Well-chosen images and icons will help you convey a lot of information in very little time. Select images and icons that are in line with your messaging and branding. 

Videos
If you spend any time on the Internet at all, you’ve likely noticed the trend toward integrating videos into web design. If used the right way, videos can deliver a message to your users that might not be possible to convey with words or pictures. But videos do catch the eye, so make sure they’re not distracting from other elements of your design.

A Web Designer needs to know web design theory and industry best practices, search engine optimization (SEO) tactics, and how to work collaboratively with clients and stakeholders to make sure you’re meeting their needs.

Learning web design theory is important because there are certain foundational principles for creating excellent websites, including color theory, structure and user experience. If you don’t attend college, you can still study this theory through a bootcamp or online course.

SEO is an increasingly in-demand skill. As the visual architect of your site, you’ll be responsible for ensuring that it has all the elements in place to rank high in search.

Also, most Web Designers need at least some functional knowledge of commonly used programming languages like HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and jQuery. This is probably most important for freelancers like myself, while Web Designers working at bigger companies or an agency will more likely work on a team that includes Programmers and Graphic Designers.

I also tend to take design courses each year that cover and go into great detail over design trends that are emerging.
