Most of the websites I design are developed on the Wix platform. Here are some examples of websites I have developed using the Wix editor. Wix is the easiest website platform to use, hands down. Wix allows you to drag and drop text, video or images anywhere you see fit on your page with very minimal restrictions. Want moving text or parallax images, Wix lets you do them with a simple click of a button. After I have developed the look, flow and feel of your website, I will sit down with you and show you how to do simple edits to text and photos, or even more advanced edits like how to create a whole new page if you’d like. If you just want to leave all the edits in my hands, I’m more than happy to put a monthly package together for you so you can live worry free. To find out more about the Wix platform, click here.

MH Custom Printing
Mauka Makai Mobile Massage
I had the pleasure of working with Annette to help her in the rebranding process. She was unhappy with the look of her logo and website so she came to me for some help. She had a website that had several pages with very little to no text on them, so we consolidated her website to a landing page that tells her story and is very soothing and appealing to her audience.
Encinitas Print Shop
My esteemed colleagues over at 2nd Street Printing have a fairly large operation and only had a landing page presence on the internet. They came to me to showcase the vibe around the shop as more fun and playful, as you well know if you've been in the shop. So I designed a vast website for them showcasing all the amenities they have to offer. Great place to get printing done in Encinitas, CA.

Matt and Tanya wanted a website that could showcase all the services they provide in their shop. From screen printing apparel to embroidery, they have a lot to offer. They also wanted to implement a store where Matt could sell some of his designs for shirt, hoodies and hats. So we added that to the project, This is a good representation of the storefront that Wix provides.
THE WEB DESIGN PROCESS IN A NUTSHELL
I will build a custom website that is 100% yours, is completely unique to your business, and you will have full control of the domain name and hosting plan. The sites I build are SEO friendly and together we will come up with key words that help your site get noticed by search engines such as Google, Bing and Yahoo. Your website will be professional, functional and effective!
The web design process starts by getting to know you and everything there is to know about your business. I like to start with a face to face conversation, but if that is not possible or you don’t live in the area, a phone conversation will usually suffice. During that conversation, I will talk about the look and feel of the website, what story you’d like to tell and how you want your future customers and clients to perceive your company. This is done with colors, fonts or lettering type, and the layout design.
The next step is gathering information. In this phase, I will put together all the information about your company that you want to say and develop a map or legend of how the website will operate, for an example, a home or landing page, an about us section, a contact page and so on and so forth. Following that, I will need photos or assets that you want your customers to see that explain your business and help them get a feel and mood of your company.
During the next step, I take all the text, photos, fonts and colors that you would like to use, and draft up a rough layout using Adobe Illustrator to show you what the layout looks like. From there we make edits and fine tune the layout so we can make the most effective impact on your visitors. We want to make sure we give them all the pertinent information that they need to know about your company and swing their decision to go with your company and not your competitors.
Once a design is finalized after the revision stages, I begin to build out the site using that as a guideline. I will lay out all the pages and set up all the links to go where they need to go. I provide you with a link so you can see the progress of your new website while it is being built. This whole process is very hands on and you can see how everything develops.
After all the pages have been built out and I get final approval from you, we will be ready to launch the site to the world! You will then decide which hosting plan is best for you and your business and set up the plan using your very own Wix account. I will provide you with one on one or over the phone training so you can make easy changes to your site as your needs change and your business grows. You take take your new website and run with it. If you ever think you screwed something up and need technical support, I am here to help you. As your business develops and you need more content and pages, I can do that for you also.
