Web Sites

Your company’s web presence is your chance to impress your customers and communicate your marketing messages. We’ll discuss your goals for your web site — to inform? to promote? to sell? — and I’ll develop a site with intuitive navigation and appropriate graphics that will help you meet your business objectives. I specialize in WordPress and have done countless installations and theme modifications. I also can work with your in-house web developer, if you have one. Click here to see examples of web sites I’ve designed.
