Antoine Verslype ā€“ Web Developer

How to stand out from the crowd? I've been making breathtaking websites to help authors like you for 10 years āœØ Let me tell you how šŸ‘‡

Overview

Hello there!

I'm Antoine, a web designer trained in Paris, fluent in English and French with a decade of professional experience.

I've been telling the stories of dozens of start-ups and businesses throughout my career through the art of web design and feel confident that I can tell yours in a way that will strongly connect with your audience and readers.


WHAT MAKES A GREAT WEBSITE

What I've learned over the years is that there are two main aspects that will get people to engage with your website.

The first one is the reason why web designers are always saying 'make beautiful websites' - it's because people are attracted to beautiful things and it's the best way for them to feel comfortable and at ease. This is an important aspect when they decide if they want to engage with your content, stay on your website and ultimately discover your book. That's why creating a luminous, well balanced and attractive website is so important.

The second element is the user journey, meaning how people engage and move around your website. You need to deliver the information regarding your book in a clear and simple way, always keeping the reader interested. This is done by creating texts which have good readibility, are short, always add value to the whole story, and are presented in bitesize chunks with appealing visual content. You also want people to easily and intuitively navigate your website, easily find their way around and ultimately reach your goal: buying your book!

When you add all these elements together with your unique story and aesthetic, you create a memorable website that will naturally engage with your audience.


WHERE I BUILD MY WEBSITES

I have a preference for making websites with Squarespace because, as it is the leading website building provider, you can rely on having:

- The most up-to-date design features to develop a modern website
- An excellent track record for website performance (which is really important for search engine ranking (being at the top of Google!))
- Robust and effective mobile optimisation
- Many excellent integrated tools to manage all your business in one place.

I also have experience with all other major website builders (Shopify, Wix, WordPress, etc...) and would be happy to adapt to your preferences.


WHAT I OFFER?

Because of the nature of web design, every project is created individually and will be clearly broken down into each component and requirement before being agreed upon.

For each project you can expect:

- Domain name registration
- Complete design of your website with a user-friendly CMS (Squarespace, Shopify, Wix, etc...)
- Full SEO optimisation (making sure search engines can see and read your website)
- Full desktop and mobile optimisation
- Connecting social media accounts
- Full training to use the platform chosen via video call for full ownership of your website

Complete branding solutions are also available.


FINAL NOTE

I pride myself on delivering clean, appealing and engaging design. Iā€™m a strong team player with excellent communication skills and enjoy delivering my work to consistently meet deadlines and exceed expectations.

Choosing the right designer can seem overwheming but there are simple elements to look out for such as, do you like the style of the designer? Is their work clear and easy to read? How does their work compare to your favourite websites? Does it look smart and professional?

What you should look for when searching for great web design is the way it makes you feel. Successful web design creates a seamless, engaging and enjoyable journey for the user. It doesn't matter whether the website is selling a book, a house or encourages you to join a band! The most important thing is that you feel at home and you want to stay. Let's build your home on the web together!
