From simple landing pages to complex websites featuring shops and catalogs. WordPress provides the platform and a white-labeled multi-purpose theme called Salient provides the canvas for your strategy. Every site I create includes a suite of customized plugins which help you craft your message and protect your domain & website. Your brand and your message is communicated clearly and effectively.
Easy registration and setup to get your website up and running.While traversing the internet is commonplace today, some of the more technical aspects of setting up a website can be daunting. Registering a domain on GoDaddy is easy – what to do after that can be confusing. DNS management includes hosting, ownership privacy, , email setup, and a LOT more.
Reliable hosting with resources scaled to your needs. Once you have your domain registered you’ll need a place for your website to live! This can include FTP access to your site, as well as easy installation for WordPress.

ANTI-VIRUS & SPAM PROTECTION
Protection from forces wanting to do your website harm. It can be a dark world out there with hackers lurking around every corner. Hackers can not only hijack your website, but also take your domain, turn your site into a hub for BAD STUFF and RED LIST your domain. WordPress is especially susceptible because of how ubiquitous it is. Luckily, I build every site with a suite of virus and spam protection. Even the smallest security measure help – but I ensure my sites are secure. For added protection, ask about SSL certificates and McAfee SECURE.
Pick your message and communicate it clearly. On-site includes all optimization that can be done to the website itself to make it’s main content visible and clear. Websites use HTML “H” tags that specify the importance of content. I use YOAST SEO to ensure websites are making use of best practices. Get found, get traffic and get closer to your goals.
SSL: SECURE YOUR DOMAIN
Having an SSL certificate shows your visitors that you are a safe and trustworthy website and business. Need we say more? If you are planning on launching a new website, it absolutely should have SSL. If you have an existing website that is ‘not secure’, it should be switched to SSL.

NAMING & TAGLINE
Research and creativity combine to wordsmith your message. While images and color create a mood, names and headlines (literally) make a statement; choose that statement with care and confidence.
LOGO / MARK & COLOR
Strong logos make strong brands. As probably the single most important aspect of identity and branding, the logo or mark is essential. It is the most simple, yet effective tool you have to communicate who you are to the world and hope they remember. A logo should be simple, memorable and sometimes evocative.
TYPOGRAPHY & FONT
The carrier wave for your message. Choosing the right font can be just as important as the words they communicate. The connection, shape and motion of the letters communicate a vibe and intention that can emphasize (or diminish) your message.
PHOTOGRAPHY & VIDEO
Professional services to make your product shine and your message come alive. In this visual age, an image can make or break your brand. Lighting, subject, composition as well as story appeal is key when communicating your brand ideas.
Story, Message, & Vibe
A story or narrative is a collection of images viewed over time. This story can be as simple as a feeling or as complex as a novel, play, or film – leaving the viewer with a real takeway; informational, emotional or spiritual. Branding and marketing gets a bad rap because it is used to sell – but that’s not all it does – not hardly. A proper brand will express the identity of the client and highlight certain aspects; the heart and soul, which is alway complicated, raw and powerful.
When you look at your brand, do you like the story it tells?
DELIVERING YOUR MESSAGE AND IDENTITY
Marketing collateral is the delivery system for your brand identity and message. From the simple addition of your logo and tag line on an email, to exchange of business cards to a massive billboard on the side of building, these marketing elements help to build your brand strong with a consistent, cohesive look and feel.
The tactile, tip of the marketing spear. A well designed business card is like a firm handshake – it makes an impression of professionalism, seriousness and intent.
The undisputed king and heavyweight of marketing. A well designed poster is often on par with a great work of art. Posters should not only communicate your brand message, but have that special something that makes viewers want to run out, buy a frame and put it in their living room.
BROCHURES & POSTCARDS
The perfect way to present your message that’s more than a fleeting glance. After a successful interaction with clients, sometimes your impression can fade – make sure it doesn’t by providing a simple piece of well-designed branding users can physically hold, examine and keep.
ENVELOPES & LETTERHEAD
Keep your brand game consistent and locked tight. Often overlooked, having your logo and brand message on all forms of liaison (including email) is an important part of brand identity and consistency.
