Having a website is just as important as having a logo, a storefront appearance or the interior of a venue. All aspects of a business should come together and give off one impression.

To some, a website might be easy to build especially with so many do-it-yourself tools available online. That might be the right fit for those who just want any content up on their website and aren't concerned with the appearance.

What I do is different. I focus on an artistic approach to web design. I specialize in taking your style, identity and finesse and pulling that in to your website. Personalizing the website to fit your brand and to be a unique experience for all visitors to your web page.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Where can I find more information about your services?

    COMING SOON: A welcome package will be available to download for anyone who is ready to start a project or still weighing the options. This handy PDF document will cover my design process when starting a new website project. Check back soon for the link!

  • How long does it take to build a website & how much does it cost?

    A project timeline and cost really depends on the scope of the work needed. The different variables that determine the scope of work include:
    - if the website is built from scratch vs. built with a CMS platform (such as WordPress or Squarespace)
    - if custom programming is required
    - the amount of content
    - if all of the content is readily available (text, images, videos & etc.)

    If you're unsure just how ready you are to build a website or what your options are send me a message and we can figure it out together!

  • Does my business location matter?

    We can work together no matter where you are! If you are local to the Greater Toronto Area (the GTA), we can schedule an in-person meeting to discuss your project. Outside of the GTA means it will have to be an email, phone and/or video-based relationship. Whichever route we take, I provide the same quality of service and superior communication across the board.

  • Do you provide SEO services?

    I have basic SEO knowledge and I do include these services in all website designs. If you require ongoing or in-depth SEO services, I can recommend other service-providers to assist you.

  • Do you collaborate with other designers or developers?

    Absolutely, I do! There's no better way to enhance skills and create something unique then with a larger team. Putting great minds together can only have great results. Send me a message if you're interested in working together!
