Learn more about Think Different Designs

  • Hello.

    I founded Think Different Designs with the goal of helping people express themselves creatively – through design and words.

    I designed my first site back in December 1996 (before most people were using the internet), since then I’ve worked on numerous personal and client projects in my spare time. I’ve been learning all about design and how it applies to the web and I continue to hone my craft. I specialize in delivering effective, quality, and beautifully designed websites that meet your needs. I am ready to work with you on your project!

    You should know that while creating site designs I will work closely with you to understand your true needs for your site. I possess strong communication skills and I believe the ability to conceptualize needs into practical and usable internet ideas are as important as my technical skills.

My Approach

Read Some Outside the Box Posts
Think Different Design’s approach is built around helping clients identify their needs and working with them to develop effective web strategies that can grow along with their companies or organizations.

Every project that I work on begins with a comprehensive discovery phase where I sit down with you to find out about your organization; what you like/dislike about your current website if you have one and what ideas you would like to see incorporated into the new design.

I understand that website development can be especially complex. Design, information, and technology need to be seamlessly integrated into an interface that provides a great user experience for both the customer-facing side as well as the back-end side of the site if you will be managing content on your own also.

I believe that your website must be easy to use and manage. It must be built on a solid architecture that conveys content in a clear and concise manner. That’s why I build the majority of my sites using the WordPress, open-source content management system that provides endless opportunities for growth and change.

I understand that your website must have an engaging interface that is consistent with your personality and promise and one that works on all screen sizes including mobile browsers. I will work with you to find and select a good basic theme template to start the process.

In the end, I understand that the technology solution must be flexible, adaptable, and realistic. My collaborative process means that I work with you to develop a joint solution through agile iteration and development cycles.

I look forward to sitting down with you and discussing your design needs. I also like to pass along words of wisdom when I read articles that I believe can help my client think differently. Check out these articles that I’ve posted Outside the Box.

“n a testament to how easy it is to work with Larry of Think Different Designs, I have never actually met Larry in person. For the website for my glass business, Tilda Brown Swanson Glass at tbsglass.com,I initially sent him an email because he had helped redesign the website for a non-profit organization for which I am on the board (Iowa Youth Chorus). I asked him to use a simple all black background, display photos I had had professionally taken of my glass pieces, organize them by series, and place statements I had written up for each series. Larry organized my work and statements into a simple and I think, beautiful site for my review. I dumped all of my images into a dropbox and he uploaded the images easily to the site. He hosts my site for me. It has been economical and simple for me to have my site up and running. He has recently given me access to the site as an administrator, so that I can make simple text and image changes myself. Working with Larry is a simple, economical way for a sole proprietor to have a website hosted and live quickly and easily.”
