From concept to creation, building online dreams.
Websites can be tough to conceptualize by yourself. Let me help you design the website that markets your dream and targets your key audience. I believe in crafting a partnership and working together to make your project a success. It starts with a meeting where we will discuss your goals, requirements and style, what you do and what you don't do. After asking a lot of questions to determine the scope of the project, a creative brief is written detailing each portion and process of a site build.

WordPress Information and Support
There is no predefined package or pricing. Each client has different needs, ideas, wants and budgets, so each project will be estimated according to those factors. For website and design services, the work is structured around hourly rates, with a project cap. What this means is that I estimate how much time your project will take based on your specifications, goals and requirements, and set a total project cost (or cap) based on that. Close communication throughout your project is key to ensure that staying on budget is a priority, not to exceed your project cap without your explicit approval, leaving no surprise bills at the end of your project.
If you have a specific budget to work with, we can work together to determine what the scope of the project will be and stage it accordingly to stay within that budget.
There is no project that is too small.
