Should you choose to employ my services, I will create for you an attractive and accessible website to give your business a web presence or to help further your personal goals. Additionally, I can modernize your existing website to increase its functionality. Every website I create incorporates the following features:
Valid xhtml and css-based code compliant to current web standards.
(Read about why web standards are important.)
If you require changes to your site in the future, anyone you contract for this purpose will find updating to be a cinch thanks to my streamlined and clearly labeled code, cutting down on time and monetary costs.
Intuitive and straightforward navigation and presentation.
Accessibility via broad range of computers, web browsers and hand-held devices.
Your website will display accurately on a variety of PC and Macintosh web browsers, and will degrade to plain text cleanly when viewed by web-ready hand-held devices, such as Blackberries and some cellphones.
Usability by the blind and other individuals with visual impairments.
For those of us with good eyes, it can be easy to assume that everyone views the web the same way we do, but of course that is not the case. I will take care of those considerations for you as I create (or recreate) your site. Primary content will be resizable to accomodate those with vision problems, and your site will be easily read by the screen readers used by individuals without visual capabilities.
Increased searchability by search engines like Google over many websites.
Due to my web-standards-conscious coding methods, your content will be more readily found by popular search engines, increasing the visibility and usefulness of your website
I welcome you to contact me to discuss your website needs, at which time I will be happy to give you a quote.
The Mosmillers Family Website
The creation of themosmillers.org represented my first foray into web design. After installing Movable Type, I created 7 blogs and several static pages, including a photo gallery and a robust help section, and then rebuilt the look and functionality of the blogs to suit my family's needs.
Faiths and Empires Website
I created the Faiths and Empires website for myself and my friends to enjoy a hobby of ours. While the site consists mainly of informational pages, it does also feature two blogs, one public and one hidden.
This project also provided me with the opportunity to try out a neat little image trick to allow the fancy header text to display on any image-ready computer, something that is not normally possible using more conventional web design techniques.
Nic Kipke’s Campaign Website
When Nic inquired if I might create and maintain a web presence for his Maryland delegate campaign, I was happy to help. After building his website in mid-2005, I have added new features periodically, such as a paypal donation option, and continue to update the site with new content on a frequent basis.
Nic’s site has been showcased as an example of how to "do it right" when new candidates have been taught how to use the internet effectively during their campaigns.
I took on the task of revamping Anonymous Opinion's look before the author decided to make the move to new blog software that was totally unfamiliar to me. I studied up on the nuances of this software while gaining some familiarity with the php code that powers it, and then created not just a new design, but an entire blog skin that altered and improved on some of the existing features. I was even able to fix a bug within the blog software itself, and got it all finished in time for Anonymous Opinion to roll out the new look for the 2,996 Tribute to 911 victims.
The point? Even if your needs require me to work in unfamiliar territory, I will work furiously to gain an understanding of that territory and deliver a product of which you can be proud.
