With a summer busy doing a couple of #Wordpress website redesigns, I got itchy about re-doing my own website and here it is.
There will be more things added as I build up my business and come up with some fresh ideas. I hope to have a portfolio of one of my redesigns for a client who had a website that was ‘okay’ but very expensive to upgrade any time apart from very simple blog posts. It didn’t even have social media sharing tools to help spread the word.
Moving him to WordPress is going to make his ongoing website maintenance far simpler, cheaper, and flexible. While meeting virtually with his longtime graphic designer who does his print collateral (wanted to be certain to use his branding colors), we decided the theme I had initially selected wasn’t quite “there” and before you could put either of us on hold, I was able to install a different theme, tweak it a bit for color schema, and had a new look to present and some functionality that the client really wanted.
I joke with both potential and actual clients that my goal doing WordPress websites is to enable them to find a new person who can easily step into my place if I get hit by a bus, though a big part of my interest in going into this area of expertise is to teach people that one needs solid content and good writing skills.
I’m still toying with ideas on creating a logo for my business but for the moment, enjoy the brighter colors and whimsical cartoons.
