·Suggested template: I will suggest several templates for you to review and we’ll discuss mockups to give you an idea of the overall look.
Yes, I work with other web template sites. Some I suggest are reviewing are: GoDaddy , Wix, Shopify, Etsy, and Wordpress.
What I do:
Consult and walk-you through the process of establishing a site. (we develop the content in private before publishing and client can take over at any time)
Create 3-4 mockups of the landing page to give you a selection of the fonts, color palette, and overall look/style so we can determine the look we will refine in formatting the template.
Initially customize and design, format, and fine-tune your preferred web template to give a polished and professional appearance.
Integrate your logo to the template as well as creating a favicon for web browsers (That’s the little icon that appears next to a web address)
Modify, retouch, edit photos to suit your site specifically.
Tutor and walk you through in detail the process as you desire.
Assist in editing and proofreading test.
