I am a Freelance Web Designer & Developer based in the Central Valley.
My passion is building custom, beautiful, and functional websites that will make your life as a small business owner easier.
Did you know 94% of websites are visited through social media links? Where do most people access social media links? Well funny you should ask... Back in the day, having a mobile-version website, was a "cool" feauture. That is where I come in. Allow me to educate you and custom build another tool in your business that will make your life simple.
The first step in designing a successful web site is to gather information. Many things need to be taken into consideration when the look and feel of your site is created.
Getting a really thorough understanding as to who you are, what you do, how long you've been around, etc will help in the process of designing and/ or developing your website.
Using the information gathered from phase one, it is time to put together a plan for your web site. This is the point where a site map is developed.
The site map is a list of all main topic areas of the site, as well as sub-topics, if applicable. This serves as a guide as to what content will be on the site
Drawing from the information gathered up to this point, it’s time to determine the look and feel of your site.
What features do you want your website to have? Social media links? photo galleries? Onsite videos? Will you be needing logo design? Do you have your own "Style Guide"? We will work together to incorporate your existing style/ branding material, or if need be, create a new brand.
The developmental stage is the point where the web site itself is created. I take all of the individual graphic elements and use them to create the actual, functional site.
I make your in-progress web site available to you for viewing, so that you can suggest any additional changes or corrections you would like to have done.
At this point, I will attend to the final details and test your web site. I test things such as the complete functionality of forms or other scripts, and last minute testing for compatibility issues.
As part of testing, I check that all of the code written for your web site validates. Valid code means that your site meets the current web development standards.
Once you give final approval, we can launch your site. I host it to the desired domain. But once the site is launched, the project isn’t over...
Websites are living, breathing entities and need constant care and maintenance. Updating content, making changes to the backend, and fixing broken links are all in a day’s work. We'll come up with a strategy to achieve the desired goal, move the business forward, and stay competitive.
