Website design features

These goodies come with all websites I create:

← horizontal scrolling enabled →

Click. Edit. Publish.

Easiest content management system. Ever.

Easily update/add/delete content in the context of the live website itself (shown above) and it automatically stays consistent to the design and layout across all screen sizes. And you don’t have to log into a complicated backend system — you can also edit your site's content directly on the page. Editing your website via this CMS will stop being a chore and start being — dare I say — fun! And since you'll have access to how users are interacting with your website, you'll be able to make even more savvy content-creation decisions.

Here are some short videos to show you how easy it really is.

Scratch-made for you.

Custom handcrafted website design.

Your website design will be 100% built for your individual needs, vision and style. From designing it in Photoshop to making it web-ready in HTML/CSS, it's all built on a fun- and easy-to-use content management system (CMS). Your website won’t be based off a template that everyone else in the world buys, too. And most of the time to make a site both unique and editable, designers hire outside developers to "translate" the designs into a working CMS, but all of that is done in-house by lil old me.

From scratch and fresh-baked. Down to the pixel. Unique. Yep, just like you, you snowflake.

Looks great everywhere.

Your website layout adapts to any screen size.

Your website will be 100% responsive so it looks great and loads fast no matter what screen it's being viewed on. I design by hand multiple layouts for your pages so that your website automatically adjust based on the screen size it's being viewed through. Desktops. Tablets. Smart phones. (Even devices that haven't even been made yet.) Your website will fit 'em all. Totally future-proofin' it. You put in the content and it'll automatically be beautiful. Like magic. 

Bulletproof code.

Full CSS3/HTML5 compliance.

I create the architecture of your website on a strong foundation. The underlying structure of your entire website needs to be in the most up-to-date languages to keep it running smoothly and rendering great in all browsers. With this rock-solid foundation of compliant code and blazing fast hosting, you might just mistake your website for a superhero.

I've got your back(up).

Automated site backups & software updates.

Versions of your website will automatically be backed up every few minutes for you when you're making content edits, then daily, weekly and monthly so you will never lose your site or any changes you’ve made at any point in time. (Think of it like a website insurance plan but without the slimy sales reps.) And unlike open source alternatives, you won’t need to update any software or plugins to keep the site safe from hackers; it’s done for you automatically behind the scenes. And since it's created with bulletproof code, you've got many layers of protection wherever you look.

Know your visitors.

Traffic analytics give you actionable data.

With analytics installed, you can see how many visitors are coming to your site and their behavior once they get there. You can see such things as how long they stay on each page, what links they click (what are your most and least popular pages?), what devices your visitors use (do more people use their iPhone or laptop?) and so much more. (And if you get off on analytics and spreadsheets make you smile, you can get lost in a lovely rabbit hole of data collecting.) With all this powerful data, how you write your content can be less gut-driven and more data-driven.

High-speed website.

Blazing fast hosting all over the world.

Your website and all its files will be distributed across the globe in a content distribution network (CDN) powered by Fastly and Amazon Cloudfront with 99.9% uptime. And when hypersonic hosting is coupled with efficient, compliant code, your website loads super fast for any visitor, anywhere in the world. Best part is, all you need to manage is the content. All this hosting magic is done for you by the all-powerful hosting fairies.

Automatic inline image resizing

When you upload images to your website, they will always look crisp and great on all devices (and load quick), whether the device is a normal or high-resolution (HiDPI) device since images auto-size based on viewport. (Normally to achieve this, you would need re-size/re-save each image for each viewport.)

No hacks. Guaranteed.

Stay safe with complimentary SSL.

You have many layers of protection here. First layer is that it's built by hand from the ground up (no open source software is used, so no open doors that hackers can slip through). In addition to that, you'll have the added layer of protection by getting complimentary SSL (secure socket layers). Aside from keeping your website secure and safe, Google also loves SSL and explicitly says it will give you a ranking boost for your website's positioning in its search results.
