Design Services

#philosophy { My Philosophy

Websites represented here were born out of a co-creative relationship between the client and the designer...working together to present the "essence" of your art, projects, services or vision. Each site is designed to be as individual as you are. I have found over the years that working with artists, healers and visionaries has been an exciting niche and both a challenging and rewarding experience.

#design { The Design

I believe in clean, simple, elegant design. A website that is easy to navigate, logical and user-friendly. One that is unmistakably aligned visually with its content.

#work { How I work

The initial consultation time is filled with getting to know you and your company, your design likes and dislikes, the content and scope of your website needs, your marketing expectations, and securing a good domain name and hosting package. We discuss everything in great detail from "what's your favorite font, background color, texture?" to "what slide show script do you like the best?" even "where do you want your menubar to be?" It's all about you getting what you want. Along the way it is common to familiarize you with the language of HTML, browser differences, digital imagery, and how to best submit content to me. I will make the process as painless as possible and one in which your concerns will be heard.

#focus { Main Focus

My main focus is on design and functionality. I recommend that if you are going to depend on your site appearing on the first page of Google, that you also hire a SEO - search engine optimizer - who will work with you on your marketing expections and budget, and submit recommendations to me to apply to your pages for the best search results. SEO is a specialty field and requires someone who keeps up with all the ongoing changes in the industry.

Although we estimate the cost of a project, history has proven that often a site grows beyond the original vision and scope that was laid out in the initial consultation. I strive to stay within the estimate and your budget by maintaining a close co-creative relationship with you, so changes and redesigns are kept at a minimum.

All invoices are due upon receipt. If you need to make payment arrangements give me a call and we’ll work out a creative solution! Invoices will be sent monthly on maintenance work.

Dear Sue - I want to take this opportunity to thank you for the great work you do for our company. You never fail to amaze me on not only your technical "know how" but more importantly your creativity and imagination. I basically outline what is needed and you go far beyond the call of duty. Your work is absolutely wonderful and timely. Thank you and let's work together in the years to come!

Lindy Thompson, Maximum Exposure

Sue,
I don't know how to compliment you any more. I must find new adjectives to describe your work ethic & the amazing quality of what you deliver. You're just awesome.

Rita, International Stem Cell Institute

Sue works intuitively, intelligently, and efficiently. She created a website that reflects not only the evolution of my business, but one that also reflects who I am as an artistic human being. I think it is this quality, more than any other, that makes people say to me, 'I love your website.' They don't love it because it has bells and whistles, but because it has personality.
