Faus Gaitan - Web Developer

Hi, I design HQ websites for authors based in wordpress. I have over 10 years experience and I can help with any genre!

Overview

I have been designing for more than 10 years now. I started designing fanart graphics when I was a teenager and then I realized I had a passion for graphic design. I'm a self-taught front end developer now, and I especially love to work with WordPress: the most used and powerful content management system out there these days.

I love to design author websites as it is fun and exciting to get involved with such a creative process. A website is the key element in any author platform, and I know exactly what works and what are the most important aspects and must-have elements in a writer's website. Knowing how to present yourself online is fundamental if you want to have a successful career as a self-published author. My skills and knowledge can help you to achieve this.

My process starts with a photoshop mock-up (a design concept) that is updated with your feedback until you are 100% satisfied with it. I offer unlimited revisions as I believe it's super important for you to be HAPPY with the design, and after that I proceed with the coding and website configuration / setup.

If you have any question, please contact me to discuss! I love to answer questions and talk about author websites!

Tanya Sood Author Website

Tanya Sood is an award-winning writer, speaker and inspirer, whose purpose is to help women recognize the Divine Feminine power that courses through their veins – and own it.

Her website is minimalist and has different sections. She wanted the header section to be prominent and she was specific on the images and style she was looking for.

Working with her was a great collaboration.

Natalie Perry Author Website

It's been a pleasure working for Natalie. She aspires to reduce discrimination against LGBTQ families through the power of education and sharing her own family story. She needed something clean, simple, and she was also pretty clear about what she needed. You can see the final version here:

Jeff Degordick Author Website

Jeff DeGordick is a horror and post-apocalyptic novelist currently living in southern Ontario, Canada. He asked me to design his author website because he wasn't sure how to create it by himself. He was very clear about the visual aspect of what he needed. He used to have his old website in, and now it is self hosted and 100% custom.
