Blog / Website Design
With expertise in Photoshop, Dreamweaver, HTML, CSS, WordPress and more, I am able to set up web hosting and design websites and blogs to fit any budget. The best examples of my work include the very site you are reviewing, along with my other websites and blogs:
Animal Assisted Therapy Services
In January 2012, I designed a website for nonprofit organization, Animal Assisted Therapy Services, Inc. based on the free platform, Weebly. Building on photos provided by the client, and expanding on text that had already been in use on a very static website, I:
- Incorporated elements of Search Engine Optimization (SEO) that enabled the site to be quickly found on Google (something that the previous, image-based site had not been able to achieve).
- Integrated callouts for donations, requests for volunteers, and promotion of the firm’s Facebook book, elements that were critical to the organization’s development.
- Incorporated the firm’s PayPal account into the site so the transmission of money for donations and event payments were seamless.
- Added more detailed program pages with pertinent descriptions and photos that corresponded well with the organization’s mission.
- Included bulleted lists and multiple means of cross-linking so that visitors were able to easily navigate through the site.
- Integrated a robust photo gallery that enable the site to showcase the many fabulous photos that the firm had possessed, but wasn’t able to readily promote to the public.
- Incorporated Google Maps so that participants were able to easily locate the firm’s stables.
- Wrote a more detailed bio page for the firm’s owner, so that her exceptional credentials were more prominently highlighted.
