Website Design

Customized design and functionality tailored to your specific needs

Every business is unique, so your website should be tailored to your needs. There is no one-size-fits-all solution.

If you are self-employed, a microenterprise, or a small or medium-sized enterprise (SME), you know how important a well-designed and functional website is to your business. Your website is the first thing your potential clients or customers see when they search online for products or services related to your line of business. You want to grab their attention and get them to buy what you sell online or contact you for a quote or more information.

A website also builds awareness of your brand and provides information about what you do, what products or services you offer, and how they can best meet your prospects’ needs. Not only does it need to look great, but it also needs to be fast-loading, secure, and SEO-optimized. Depending on the type of project or business, web accessibility may be required. In addition, long-term website maintenance is critical to preventing downtime and promptly resolving technical issues.

Websites I design

As a business owner, I understand the challenges of reaching your desired audience. I am here to help your business succeed by creating a well-designed and visually appealing website to meet your business goals.

I am not fond of themes offered by various marketplaces as they often have problems. I prefer to design websites from scratch to suit the intended purpose. Of course, all designs are responsive and suitable for mobile devices.

I use premium, state-of-the-art tools to design WordPress websites and focus on user experience and security. If you also want web accessibility, I would happily create an accessible website.
