I am a Designer

Use a designer when getting your website built.

The design of your website can either make or break the business you are trying to deliver. It actually makes a difference on how your target audience views your business or company and potentially turn them into your customers. As such, developing a website design that has an impressive user interface will result in a much better conversion rate, which leads to better business and revenue.

Think of it like a tangible business on any street. You’ll get more business if your store looks good. The same for your website. Less is more. Having beveled buttons and lots of copy is ineffective and reflects dated design skills. Apple is the largest company in the world and it’s the “apple-esque” approach to simplification that got them to where they are today.

I am very “apple-esque” in my web design. I believe in the benefits of good design and I subscribe to less is more.

Winner of four Best of State Awards for Website Design, Video, and Software Development.

Emerald Forest garnered another 35 awards in software design, video, and website design. In my world function always followed form… and eventually the two became tightly integrated.
