Website & Blog Design

Custom Websites

Our Customized database-driven sites are built on platforms to give you vast options in design, programming, SEO (search engine optimization) and functionality capabilities.   In the olden days, we built websites in HTML. Now there are more affordable options. [Sure, we can still build HTML or Java Script sites, if required].   Those old websites cost thousands of dollars more, take far longer to build, and don’t provide the free functionality and options you get on newer platforms we offer. Yes, we can customize design – just ask!

 

Breadth of Style & Capabilities

Don’t see what you want? Just ask and we’ll match you to one of our designers who’s the perfect fit for your project.

 

A Few Samples

SOME SITES HAVE BEEN MODIFIED OVER THE YEARS SINCE OUR INITIAL DEVELOPMENT. STYLES CHANGE, BUSINESSES EVOLVE, TECH OPTIONS AND NEEDS CHANGE, PEOPLE CHANGE.

Plus we provided a tutorial so the site owner could make updates on her own. Design details and costs are on our services page.

Fitzgerald  Financial Management Purpose: To create a website in 3 days while the owner was on vacation! We secured the domain name, registration, copy editing, selected the very formal design style requested by this client, and presented a simple description of the company and services that was properly created to pass industry regulations.

” . . . [they had the] expertise to perfect our marketing campaign beyond our wildest expectations. They created a succinct message in the sleek, no-frills format we imagined. Working under a tight deadline and strict budget, needed a flexible website and quality marketing materials for an upcoming campaign. All these benefits were presented in the utmost efficient, professional and cost-effective manner. Every step was thoroughly discussed and seamlessly implemented. No detail was left behind, not just editing, but uncovering, strengthening and factoring in the bigger marketing picture, providing us much, much more than any web designer.” – Patrick Fitzgerald         [more of Patrick’s comment]

We built a video and photo gallery with film & theatrical credits in addition to a tutorial to enable Susan to add recent assignments or additional content herself.
