The Beautiful Work: Web

Web sites keep evolving. What looked good yesterday may not look good today. I spend a lot of time perusing the web in search of functional, yet beautiful web site design.

And I walk my talk.

This is the fourth edition of my own web site since 2003. I wanted it to be clean and minimalist, yet bold and beautiful. A lot of clutter on your site makes it hard for visitors to get what they came for. It’s important to remember that your web site is an on-line store-front.

Would you have so much stuff in your store that they couldn’t even get inside the door?

Please take a stroll through my web site designs. We can meet in person or talk on the phone if you like what you see.

Teri Cox: Path 2 Butterly Forum

My client Teri asked me to design a nature inspired Path 2 Butterfly Forum web site for her radical change venture. She wanted the fragile and recovering from grief folks who visited her site to experience a sense of peace and tranquility and leave with the hope that they too will work their way through various life stages as they deal with the loss of a loved one or other kinds of radical, unexpected life changes.

Marisa Design: www.marisadesign.com

Marisa Design partners with Fearless Design to create dynamic, browser compliant web sites. After I designed several sites for Marisa Design, Margie Matteson, the owner, approached me about redesigning her own site. She wanted her web site to evoke an earthy, peaceful feel with various compartments to showcase her work. She tells me that friends, colleagues and clients love her new design and that it has brought in a lot of new business.

Britton Homes: www.britton-homes.com

Marisa Design, my web programming partner, asked me to design a web site for her client, Britton Homes, a home remodeling company. They wanted a classy site that showcased their remodeling projects. In addition, they wanted their free report to be front and center. Looks great, doesn’t it?

Penelope James: Branding, Logo, Web Site, Copy Editing

Penelope liked my sassy Linked In profile so much she hired me to design her web site! Another reason to be yourself wherever you go. First we uncovered her Fearless Brand. Once we had that, we worked with a talented illustrator in Mexico to create the banner image for her provocative upcoming book: Don’t Hang Up. I had the site coded by the fabulous Web Image Designs. Penelope’s gotten terrific feedback on the design. What more can I ask for?

 

Christopher Events: www.christopher-events.com

Laura Christopher, an event planner, approached Marisa Design to create a web site for her new business, Christopher Events. She wanted a clean and uncluttered look, with relaxing earth & ocean colors. I took the colors from her existing logo and a great ocean photo of an event. The site has a simple, open feel. Just the experience you’ll get when Christopher Events plans your event!

East Douglas Insurance: www.eastdouglasinsurance.com

Insurance company web sites tend to be unattractive. Marisa Design asked me to create a web site to promote East Douglas Insurance, a Central Massachusetts insurance agency. My goal? To create a really lovely web site for them. I also wrote the copy for the home page. It came out great. They love it!
