Website Design

I've created all sorts of websites, from whimsical to dark and serious, from light and sweet to mysterious and intriguing. I specialize in creating websites for authors, organizations, and small businesses. Please check my portfolio pages to see the range of designs I've done.

I can do straight HTML sites and more complex databased-sites. A number of my clients use WordPress-based sites so they can maintain content themselves, and I've designed a few e-commerce sites based on OSCommerce.

My rates are reasonable and I build each site individually, to give you a professional looking web presence that highlights your products and projects the image you want to put in front of the world.

Talk to me about developing a site just for you.

Repair/Redesign/Maintenance

Need help ironing out problems with an existing site? I'll be glad to help you with code that refuses to cooperate or graphics that look grotesque. I can work with WordPress, Blogger, straight HTML, php, javascript, and some site-template or CMS-based sites.

Need to revamp a limp, tired site? Talk to me about getting a site makeover.

I am always willing to help maintain or make changes to sites I've designed. In most cases, I can take over maintenance of an existing site should your current webmaster retire or disappear. There are exceptions though. I cannot work with sites created in FrontPage or some based on obscure or proprietary database systems. Contact me for a free consultation if you're in need a new webmaster for an existing site.

Blogs

Have you built or do you want to build your site around a blog, using one of the free services like blogger.com or wordpress.com? You've got a nice template, but you'd like to personalize it a bit so it doesn't look like everyone else's?

I can create a customized header for you and adjust the color scheme of the site to match it, to give you a look that's all your own.

Book Covers

This is a new service I've begun recently. Increasingly authors are self-publishing their own books or their backlist on Smashwords and Kindle. But since cover designs are generally owned by the publisher, the author needs a new cover for their electronic copies.

Check out some of the covers I've done here. If you're interested in discussing having me do one or more for you, feel free to contact me here.

Banners/Buttons/Bookmarks

I can do pretty much any size banner or button for advertising, whether static or animated. Here are a few examples:

Static Horizontal Banners

Animated Banners

Vertical Banner

I can also design bookmarks, postcards or other print advertizing materials.

Domain Name Registration

I can register your domain name for you as long as the name is available. I'll create an account for you and send you the access information, so you always have control of your own domain name.

Hosting

I can work with a variety of hosting services, but I can also provide hosting myself. Talk to me about your needs.

Other Services

I've designed MySpace pages, eBay storefronts, Twitter backgrounds and a variety of other web-based designs. Feel free to contact me to talk about anything web-based that you need.
