Over 20 years in the game
PRACTICING MY ART SINCE 1996
I formally founded Think Different Designs in 2008 with the goal of helping people express themselves creatively – through design and words. I designed my first site back in December 1996 (yeah, before most people were using the internet), since then I’ve worked on numerous personal and client projects primarily referred by word-of-mouth.
I've chosen to focus on small mom-n-pop size businesses, creative artists, and small non-profit organizations. I have however done work for larger enterprises under white-label agreements as well as work with other website design agencies.
As web technologies continue to change, I continue to hone my craft to provide a first-class custom designed website tailored to my client. I've been designing and developing exclusively for the Wordpress platform since 2008.
STRONG COMMUNICATION SKILLS
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.
YOUR NEEDS DELIVERED
I specialize in delivering effective, quality, and beautifully designed websites that meet your needs. I am ready to work with you on your project!
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 all 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.
We will talk on a weekly basis to let you know what's been done and what's yet to do.
We will keep in mind your go-live goal date and make sure we've discussed any variances.
Sometimes you may want to make additional adjustments to the initial scope of work. Just remember, additional scope increases your timelines and costs.
We will also discuss your hosting needs to provide the best performance for your new site.
