    What Can I Do For You?

    BUILD YOU WHAT YOU REALLY NEED

    Whether your a small mom-and-pop business, an independent entrepreneur, or work for a local non-profit, my desire is to help you achieve your business needs.

    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 it's better than you had even imagined.

    Let's Get Started!

    Set You Up for Success

    Your website is the virtual front door to your brand, often forming the first impression potential customers have of your business. The right design and setup can be a game-changer, influencing customer perception, engagement, and ultimately, the success of your venture.

    An intuitive and visually appealing website design establishes credibility and trust. Having a well-structured site with clear navigation ensures that visitors can easily find information, products, or services, leading to a positive user experience. This positive interaction fosters trust and encourages visitors to engage further, potentially converting them into customers or clients.

    Remember that your website is an investment in the future of your business, providing a platform to connect, engage, and convert visitors into loyal customers, ultimately propelling your small business toward success in the competitive market.

    Sometimes you will need more than just a great website, you should consider some of the add-on services that we offer to maximize your potential to land new clients or customers.

    Make It Easy For You

    I will create your website using the WordPress Content Management System (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, and for our e-commerce needs, WordPress+ WooCommerce.

    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.

    FEATURED WORK EXAMPLES

    Greater Des Moines Public Art Foundation

    Navigating large and intricate datasets demands a well-planned information structure. Think Different Designs collaborated with Jessica Rowe, Executive Director, starting in 2015 for an extensive period to overhaul their database, create tailored taxonomies, and establish connections within a fresh, responsive-design website boasting a uniquely crafted theme. The site perfectly showed off the large collection of public art in the metro-Des Moines area and the many artists responsible for the work.

    In 2019, we were invited back to breathe new life into the website's design, elevate its functionality, and offer consultation on developing an iOS and Android companion application.
