Finding a Houston web and graphic designer – that is someone that does both web and graphic design – can be difficult. However, it doesn’t have to be. In fact, I am one of the few that does both in the Houston area.
Freelancers that do both web and graphic design are common, but there are times when one is clearly lacking in the other. As you can see in my portfolio, I honed my skills to where I can be a dependable (and powerful) choice for web and graphic design.
For web design, I specialize in designing and developing WordPress websites. WordPress is the most widely used content management system (CMS) in the world. As of 2017, WordPress websites power nearly one fifth of the world wide web. It’s flexibility and scalability has been popular among everyday bloggers, big businesses, and newspapers since its birth (in Houston!) back in 2003.
I have been developing sites exclusively in WordPress since 2011. I can build websites without WordPress just fine, but I prefer the content management platform. For one, WordPress provides roughly everything that 99% of small business owners like you will need. And even if you do need extended functionality, I can install and/or write plugins that will meet your needs.
The sites that I’ve built using WordPress have varied. Some have just two or three pages. Others have hundreds of pages and—in one case—thousands of products!
As a web designer, I have the following services available
- Marketing site design and development
- E-commerce site design and development
- Multi-site network design and development
- Help write and edit content
- Optimize pages for various keywords
- Configure and add products to your online store
- Write and edit descriptions for products in your online store
- Include revisions at no extra charge in the package of hours you hire me for
And because I am a Houston web and graphic designer, this gives me a distinct advantage when it comes to designing sites.
Most web designers and developers you deal with will probably purchase a “premium” theme on websites such as Themeforest or WooThemes. There’s nothing wrong with that and some of the stuff on there is pretty good, but I do things far different.
I design all my themes from scratch.
That’s right–every theme I design is completely from scratch. And what gives me an advantage as someone that is a graphic designer, I can create background graphics to go along with that. In turn, that theme will be crafted to reflect your business and your brand.
Regardless of the style, I can utilize my own graphic design skills to create a unique look for your website.
For graphic design, I create a slew of marketing collateral that goes along with your business. This includes:
- Business cards
- Bi-fold brochures
- Tri-fold brochures
- Web banners
- Pop-up banners
- 4×6 and 5×7 Postcards
- US Postal Service/EDDM Mailers
- Branded Envelopes
- Bumper Stickers
- Door hangers
- Greeting Cards
- Tent Cards
- Booklets and Manuals
- Car Magnets
- Yard Signs
- T-Shirt Designs
- CD/DVD Covers
- NCR Forms
- Presentation Folders
- Event Passes
- Facebook Timeline Covers
- Twitter Timeline Covers
- Facebook ads
- Social media graphics
As a Houston web and graphic designer, I can help you craft your entire brand – website and marketing collateral included. For example, I can start off by crafting your exact company colors down to the hexadecimal and PANTONE code. Then I can develop your logo, business cards, brochures, and web site. Altogether, I can help create a consistent branding image that translates from online to print and vice versa.
Advantages of hiring me as your Houston web and graphic designer
Your personnel decision is simplified – you’re utilizing one person. Instead of having to coordinate a separate web and graphic designer, you can turn to one person understands your brand and utilizes that understanding across web and print.
For example, you can have me construct your website, and then create printable materials such as brochures and door hangers that have designs based upon the website.
By using me to design your complementary marketing collateral, you will establish an online and print present that is consistent. The website is reflected on the designs of the business cards, presentation folders, and billboard and vice versa.
This can help establish your identity in the targeted market. Your desired audience associate certain aesthetics and colors with your brand. And with a consistent presence, you can plan a cohesive digital marketing strategy with a concrete foundation.
