CREATE

That is what I do. Web design, front end web development, graphic design, market research, brand identity design, marketing communications are just some of the things I create. Creativity and problem solving are the driving forces behind this enterprise. Creating eye-catching, user friendly websites is my field of expertise. I am currently busy doing design work at CA Technologies and cannot accept freelance assignments.

websites that engage

Capturing the target market and making your website visitors into repeat customers is the goal. Making successfull websites is actually not just about great graphics and the latest widgets. Your website needs to be aligned with your other marketing communications and branding, reflecting a unified company image. The basis of a great website is understanding your customer's needs and communicating the solutions to those needs effectively as well as engaging your website
visitors into action.

Building websites and marketing campaigns that are truly successful is a team effort. The most important skill is to listen and understand client’s business, target market and find the right approach based on thorough discussions and research. There is no one-size-fits-for-all solution. Each business is unique, each budget is unique and thus each website should be unique.

VIEWS TO CLICKS

First impressions. We all have heard about that too many times. I try not to judge people just by the first impression because it simply does not tell very much about the person. Websites however are a different story. Your business is judged by your website and social media. If the website doesn't immediately get the viewers attention and interest, is not visually pleasing, easy to use and informative, you have lost a potential new customer in less than 15 seconds. Make those first impressions count. Call me for a free consultation and a quote.

SIMPLICITY
The most usable websites are simple
CONTENT
Be relevant. Content is still the king.
MOBILE
is the world we live in. We design for it.
