You’re a web designer looking to collaborate with a developer who can take your beautiful designs to the next level by bringing them – and all the functionality you can dream of – to life.
Here are a few key ways I can help you unleash your creativity onto the internet:
From day one, we’re in it together! You’ve been searching for a developer who can partner on a project, knows the latest technologies including responsive design and accessibility, and can speak your design language. We’ll be working together beginning to launch.
I can jump in at any time throughout your design process to offer insight and strategies for what may be most effective online. Anything goes: responsive (mobile first) design, advice on best practices, accessibility and SEO insight, custom transitions and unique functionalities – I’m here to nerd out with you!
Your dazzling designs are finished, client-approved and you just need someone to bring them to life with thoughtful, clean code.
Need a hand with some problem code, or looking to add additional transitions or functions without pulling your hair out? I’m happy to help!
When you need a trusted developer on hand for multiple projects – let’s be friends and make this a regular thing!
How long does development take?
The length of development is very dependant on the scope of the project – on average portfolio sites and blogs tend to take 1 – 2 weeks from the time I receive the designs to the site being submitted back to you for review. Larger membership sites and stores average 2-4 weeks.
How much does a project cost?
While the cost of each project is based on the size and complexity of the site, I like to keep this part simple by offering a consistent rate for custom theme installation, configuration & communication/training + a flat-rate per page. Fees tend to range between $2,500 – $10,000 with complex membership, eCommerce and payment processing sites falling at the higher end.
Note: Content entry post-development & rush sites have additional fees.
What design programs are you able to work with?
Before going to school for Web Development, I went to school for Graphic Design so I’m pretty handy with most design programs. The Adobe suite is second nature to me, and while Sketch was released while I was in school, it wasn’t taught. It’s now one of my favorite design programs though. My point – Yes regardless of what program you use to design, I am able to turn your awesome design into an awesome website.
What platform do you use?
Almost all of my sites are custom built using the WordPress platform, a free, open-source CMS that is user and SEO friendly, offering the ability to handle any type of website. I develop custom WordPress themes using a base framework to increase speed of development.
*In very special cases sites may be built outside of WordPress, either on another CMS or without the use of one. This is determined based on the needs of the client.
What's included in the development package?
Every development package includes:
- A fully custom WordPress Theme.
- Responsive (mobile) design.
- A custom backend so the client’s content is simple and easy to edit.
- Branded 404 and Search results pages.
- Access to a private server so we are able to view, review and edit the client’s site before it goes live.
- Strategic advice on the best tools and services to be used on each project, as well as tips regarding best practices for accessibility and usability on the web.
- Google Analytics and Search Console configuration including Site Map submission.
- Client Training & a custom guide for the future.
