Susan Lewis - Web Developer

Website creation for authors, speakers, entrepreneurs and small businesses. Start from scratch or just bring your current site up to scratch

Overview

Creative professional with broad experience in communications and marketing via the web. Kick butt at taking an idea and making it happen. Rock execution of websites that tell your story. Life-long obsessive reader who understands what your readers want to know and see.

Building a site from scratch or just need to update what you have in advance of a launch? I work with you to figure out just what it is you want to communicate and how best to structure a website so you can ensure that message gets across. We'll work on the visual design as well as serious consideration of the best way to navigate around the site.

I can work with your book designer to coordinate the look and feel of your website to create a seamless image for your story as well as create or source whatever graphics, photos or images are needed for the site.

I primarily build sites on WordPress, but have experience redesigning or touching up sites built in Wix, SquareSpace, Joomla and Weebly as well as working with webpages built outside of a CMS. I specialize in small, streamlined and simple sites that are focused on communicating clearly over just being cool.

Projects

Website cleanup - Speaker and financial coach

Revamp of website for financial coaching business to make the site more professional and more comprehensively communicate its message.

Worked with client on a plan for her own photoshoot and updated stock photos to communicate a happier message. (No more sad and depressed looking people.) Customized icons to match the site and reorganized copy to communicate more succinctly. Formalized a color scheme and changed fonts to be more professional and readable. Continuing work includes photos and video for a speaking section and a further photo shoot for more variety in pictures.

Site was already built on Wix.

New Website - Technology

WordPress site created from scratch for a new business a current client was starting up. They provided all content; I decided on design and structure. Set-up required customizing art and icons, as well as rewriting/adding to the CSS to change the template to do what we wanted.

Complete Website Redesign - Accounting

Took an outdated website and redesigned the look and navigation to better fit the story/image of the firm. Project included rewriting copy from the original site to better fit the new structure, sourcing and customizing images, and selecting/customizing the theme.

Site was built on WordPress previously, so we kept that, although I just blew the whole thing up and started from scratch with a new install, theme and sitemap. Some custom CSS work to get certain parts of the theme function like we wanted.

New Website - Professional Alliance

Simple website for an alliance of professional service organizations that puts on monthly meetings/events for clients. Site needed to promote all partners equally as well as give information about upcoming events. Built with a single-page theme in WordPress. Selected the theme, sourced all images and provided copy.

New Website - Subscription Service

Simple site built to establish proof-of-concept for a business idea. Basic one-page site with membership options, referral credits in addition to main page. Sourced a theme that could grow with the site with add-ons for mailing lists and payment portals as well as all photos. Content provided by client.

New Website - Niche Blog

Themed blog with a catalog attached. Built in WordPress with custom templates for the catalog pages. Started this one from scratch from WP install to choosing the theme to creating custom graphics.
