The service was excellent! Every question we asked was answered promptly by friendly staff, and we absolutely love our website and logo designs. The design team was easy to work with and took our direction well. They were able to organize even our most vague concepts and add their own creativity to bring our vision to life. We highly recommend Deluxe.
And then there’s HTML’s partner, CSS or Cascading Style Sheets. CSS is the code that tells browsers how to format and style HTML for a web page. In other words, it’s what makes all the text and other content look good. With CSS, you can adjust the colors, change the fonts, or add a stunning background—and so much more! This is where your eye for design really shines and how you can put your creative stamp on every site you create.

Sampling of existing websites I designed and/or maintain: Backyard Beekeepers Association (a WordPress site I designed), Global Earth Repair Conference (a WordPress site I designed), Inland FoodWise Online – Newsletters and Action Alerts for the Inland Northwest Foodshed (Drupal 7 site built from scratch), Friends of the Trees Society (rebuilt ancient html site using Drupal 7), Inland Northwest Permaculture Guild (Drupal 7 site I’m rebuilding from a previous Drupal 6 site), my friend Gabe’s website Fungi Permastead (a WordPress site I designed), Spokane Community Gardens (a Drupal 7 site), Protect Mill Canyon Watershed (a WordPress site I built and maintain). I co-maintain an existing Joomla website for Crimson Sage Nursery and maintain this blog (utilizing a free WordPress account). I also work part time for WSU maintaining several websites of various projects of the WSU Mt. Vernon Extension office (Western Washington Tree Fruit & Alternative Fruits, Vegetable Research and Extension, Pacific Northwest Vegetable Extension Group, Vegetable Seed Pathology Program, Small Fruit Horticulture Research & Extension Program) and I do work on a pre-existing Drupal 7 website for WSU’s RosBREED program.

To make a website for your small business, you must choose and register your website domain, choose a web hosting provider and package, plan how your website and logo will be designed, and then design your actual site. Many tools help you do this, including outsourcing platforms or agencies, web hosting providers, and website builders. When done successfully, a website can grow traffic, brand awareness, and sales.
WordPress is still a small business favorite, and for good reason. WordPress is one of the easiest building platforms for beginners, and it offers some of the Web’s most well-designed free templates. WordPress also comes with a wide selection of free analytics and SEO tools that make it fairly simple to keep track of how your site is performing. Bearing all that in mind, it’s little wonder around one in five sites on the Internet are now constructed using WordPress.

Yola is a Web-based tool that makes life easy for small business owners who are after a simple, code-free way of producing a professional commercial website. Yola operates a drag-and-drop interface with fully-integrated social features and quite a few handy widgets. It’s worth pointing out that Yola’s free accounts don’t include access to the platform’s useful blogging tool — and so small business owners may ultimately need to go premium in order to unlock Yola’s full potential.
Hi Linix, Thank you for your question! We would always recommend small businesses sell online with their own website. Most decent online store builders (check out Shopify) come with excellent blogging functionality, so you can integrate your blog with your online store. This doesn't tie you down to one selling avenue. Good online store builders can provide a lot of help with SEO (search engine optimization) and make sure your website / blog ranks higher in Google, so people can find it in the first place. Your wife wouldn't have to sell many products through her organic coffee brand's online store before the monthly fee looked pretty small. For these and other reasons, we'd always say it's sensible to get both an online store and a blog. With them working in harmony, you have more chance of making a success of your online business I hope this helps and good luck! Fred

Project management is a foreign process for many designers and developers, especially those working as freelancers. In order for you to build a strong working relationship with your client, you need to ensure that your project workflow is as smooth as possible. Luckily, we've compiled several articles to help you build out your project management toolkit.
My name is Casper Hamlet, and I am an American graphic designer. With over 12 years of experience in various creative industries and roles, I have acquired a wealth of knowledge and skills. My work is dynamic, quick, and always created with the audience in mind. I take client relationship very seriously, as well as delivering the highest quality service in the most effective way possible. I use my 'self starter' personality to widen my skills set in project management, UI/UX design, web design, creative branding, and more. I'm flexible with my working hours and am happy to work closely with any existing freelancers you work with.
To me, a web designer is skilled in not only modern website design as well as fundamentals of both UX and UI (not necessarily programming, but the visual aspect, as well as understanding flow, and functionality), but also how design isn’t just something that looks good – it HAS TO have a purpose. This is why I feel that web designers should also understand marketing.
Hi there. We need a Wordpress genius to help us develop one of our many websites. Send us ONE link to the best Wordpress site you designed in Elementor. Make sure it is one that you did individually and not as a member of a team or agency. Also, include the words Elementor Rockstar in your proposal to show that you took the time to read this project
Just a note for those of you who may be looking for a recommendation. I used SiteBuilder for 10 years and they are phenomenal! Supported by intuit I think, so they are not going anywhere. I owned my domain name and was able to transfer at anytime. I am anything but computer savvy. But they are idiot proof and always available to assist. Fantastic layouts and design tools. I had dozens of pages with thousands of pics. Paypal. I did upgrade and it was WELL worth the $20 to $25 dollars I paid monthly. I am here because I do not need such space for my new business. So I will check out these sites also. (Thanks for putting them all together for us). But I have a feeling I will go back to SiteBuilder.
I am looking for someone who can get me ZoomInfo Free Trials, usually you just need a phone number, business email, and a website that you can make in 10 minutes (will show how I do it) I will pay for the domain and etc. It is fairly easy all you need to do is talking to the representatives and try to get them to give you a free trial. Will be looking for this to be done daily! If you can get this done, you will be rehired again and again. https://www.zoominfo.com/business/free-trial less more
