Welcome to Think Different Designs.

Showcasing the design work of local Des Moines designer, Larry Bradshaw.

My name is Larry Bradshaw and I've been for over 10 years.

What Can I Do For You?

I focus on working closely with my clients to help them realize their business needs. I do this by asking probing questions and providing credible feedback in a language that a non-technical business owner can understand. My web design experience, coupled with a strong sense of usability, will help you create a memorable and stylish website that will help you in promoting your brand. I plan the project with you from start-to-finish to make sure that when your site is finished its better than you had even imagined.

Most of the websites I’ve created were created using the WordPress Content Management Systems (CMS). For those not familiar with this concept, a CMS allows you to update your web site without the need of a web developer. This gives you greater control and allows you to have a lower cost, better looking website that you and your staff can make updates easily.

All of my work is done using state-of-the-art Apple hardware and software tools, along with the Adobe Creative Suite products, and open source software such as WordPress, CiviCRM, WooCommerce, and others web-based software that meets my client’s needs.

Let me get you started on developing a unique, custom-designed website to engage and inform your potential audience that puts your best foot forward.

LET’S GET STARTED!

RECENT FEATURED WORK EXAMPLES

Cornstalk Studio

Abigail Livingood, a local Des Moines artist that works with sculpture, fiber and mixed media needed a new website to help her promote her portfolio and sell her artwork.

Think Different Designs worked with Abigail over the phone and via email and Dropbox to get all the information together she would need to get her newly designed site up and running. The ability to sell her artwork online was a big need for my client. We added over 30 products using WooCommerce and a few different plugins.

Having previously designed their website in 2009, it was time for a fresh new look with much more content.

Using the logo colors as the palette, I designed a fresh flat-inspired design focusing on usability with navigation and content. We will be carrying this design concept into their 3 sub-sites.

Infinity Training Center

Terri Good purchased a gym that I was a current member of. She came in with a quick site that had been designed by another designer in a fixed format layout that wasn’t responsive for mobile devices and lacked in serious SEO optimization.

I created a responsive design for her that would look good on any device and helped her with social media consultation and search engine optimization.
