In a society that googles everything, a website is a must—and a good website lends credibility and professionalism. More, it makes it easy for a potential client or reader to find the information they need to choose this book or that service. My designs are all about my clients, translating their likes and goals into a visual interface. Classy, professional, dark, whimsical, image-intense or highly minimal—everything from look to function is tailored to your tastes.
The process is easy. We'll discuss what you’d like in a site—style, mood, and function—and I’ll mockup some designs. These will grow and change as you provide input. All sites are coded for WordPress, giving you complete control of content. Once the site is finished and live, I will walk you through how to update your content yourself. Or if you prefer, I can maintain your content for you.

Jody wanted to showcase various illustrations from her books in her design. For her bookmarks, she wanted plenty for space for a signature (in case a reader didn't have a book to sign). For the coloring page activity sheet, I created a vector outline from a selected illustration. The vector can scale up and down with ease, for quality printing at any size.
Amie wanted a clean, mobile-friendly site with a touch of scifi. I setup the site to be easily maintained, with custom bookstore icons for buy links and user-friendly custom fields in the WP edit screen to generate those links. (See images for the Illuminae page and its corresponding backend page in Wordpress.) Now I get to take full advantage of the setup, since I also handle all Amie's site updates and maintenance. She emails me what she needs added/changed, and I plug it in.
