I have been very rarely contacted by clients who did not need a complete redesign of outdated, sloppy or cheaply made websites. This is very common with local businesses or individuals starting out on a limited budget. A brief first consultation with a professional can be helpful in finding out how much a budget can stretch towards a better design.
I spend time researching and experimenting constantly, even on completed projects. I always put myself in the position of being able to improve upon my work.
I never outsource. If I can't do it, I don't sell it.
Small business owners and individuals looking to promote their product or service should be aware of the following:
1. Don't pay for web hosting by the month. Reasonable web hosting for a small business should not exceed $150-$200 per year.
2. When on periodic retainers such as weekly, monthly or yearly fees, ask for an itemized bill.
3. Wordpress is meant to be used as a blog, not as a main advertising solution for your business.
4. A bad developer will design you a site thinking he knows your business better than you do. A good developer will take the time to learn about your business before making any design or feature suggestion.
5. Call or email me for a free initial consultation to find out how much more you can save.
W3C compliant, search-optimized, CSS3/HTML5/PHP-powered dynamic web design.
Graphic design services, illustration, logo design, 3D modeling/animation/visualization, print-ready artworks.
Design concept development and visualization for manufacturing.
Q. How do I get more viewers?
A. There is no end to the amount of recommendations I can make in order to increase traffic towards a website. The priority goes to a proper way of designing and coding your site, choosing the right keywords, complying with web standards, cross-browser compatibility, linking to dynamic and active social networking pages and related high-ranking sites, and most of all, direct contact through building great mailing lists and keeping contact with your visitors with powerful attention-grabbing email marketing campaigns.

Software (only the ones I use the most):
I started professionally in 2006, with my first official client being Portable One Inc., formerly in Morgan Hill, CA.
I started with processing merchandise images for the store's online shopping cart and successively gained more reputation through an increasing number of clients, including the L.A. rock band Wyldsky with whom I am still working to this day.
BayAreaBridal.net and NewThings.com are the two projects I am most proud of. I have re-designed both sites from scratch in 2009, and to this day, they have been steadily on top of search results in spite of an unfavorable geographic location with respect to direct competitors.
I have been able to bring both sites to high rankings through 100% organic search optimization and without paid forms of advertising.
I am local. I do not outsource, and I am familiar with retail and local business environments. I understand payroll, overhead and the costs related with running a venture. I understand business beyond design and coding and will deliver a better product, without the detached cookie-cutter approach of larger firms.
Once a project is complete, assuming a positive feedback from the client, I provide full support for webmaster services, from design-related upgrades and modifications to search engine optimization for a standard hourly fee.
Consultations and meetings are free when scheduled at my office location. On-site consulting is charged by the hour. Commuting mileage is free of charge up to 25 miles, then it's $1.38 per mile.
At present, my personal average is about 10 projects on a long-term basis and about 10-15 short-term projects.
