Website Design and Development

At Digital Prominence, my main focus is on website design and development.  I’ve done numerous HTML sites in the past, but have become sold on the powerful & flexibility of WordPress.  WordPress itself has matured a lot as a website development foundation, but I’ve enhanced that foundation by adding complementary website development frameworks, along with a proprietary set of functional modules/plugins to create a website development methodology that really cranks up power and flexibility.  My Website Portfolio showcases ONLY  websites developed using this methodology because, frankly, I just can’t see doing pure HTML sites anymore.  My clients love how easy and inexpensive it is to add functionality to their sites because the architecture is built for that.

Responsive Design for Today’s Diverse Devices

Google recently updated their search engine algorithms to increase the importance of being “Mobile Friendly”.  All of the websites I develop now use a Responsive Web Design (RWD) approach which pass Google’s Mobile Friendly test and look great on any device, from desktop to tablet to smartphone.  Read more about the importance of responsive design to small businesses here.

Website Development by Digital Prominence: Value Added

WordPress is free, but the frameworks at the heart of my WordPress-based development methodology are NOT free, and they’re not cheap.  Some of the added functionality modules are free through WordPress, but I had to purchase others.  I bought the frameworks and functional modules with “developer’s licenses” that allow me to integrate them into all the websites I develop, but which often require ongoing paid subscriptions (which I pay).  I’m always evaluating, accumulating and updating the unique sets of added-functionality modules to meet my clients’ specific operational and “coolness” site requirements.  Sure, it has cost me money and continues to cost me money.  But I consider it an investment in the satisfaction of my clients, so it’s well worth it!

I’ve got experience finding my way around the frameworks and themes.  I’m fluent in CSS, so I know just where to go to apply the design tweaks that will make your website, well… YOUR website!
