BLUE PLANET WEB DESIGN
I'm Dave. (I'm also the brains and creative genius behind Blue Planet Web Design). I'm a Designer & Developer, hoping to make the Web a prettier and more functional place.
I’ve been doing this for a while now. And it’s something that I love doing and a very passionate about. I think there is nothing better in this world than testing your wits and coming up with new ways to be creative. Web design is what I do and love, and you’ll see why once you’ve trusted me with your website. Don;t worry, you’re in good hands.
Website design is more than just using colours and images and making the website look pretty. Okay, yes, it IS about those things, but it also has to do with HOW you do it. Luckily I’m a professional with over 10 years worth of experience in web design.
What I love to do and where I excell at.
Branding & Logo
This always gets my creative juices flowing. Branding and designing a unique and interesting logo, is part of your business identity. It is something you should only give to a professional.
Google loves original content. It is one of the key ranking features today and shouldn’t be skimped on.
Website development is all about the functionality of your site. Web design is about the look, whereas web development is all abut the feel of it. Key to it, is making sure that everything flows and actually works. Website development includes the work behind the scenes in the coding.
Built From Scratch
Is there anything worse (visually) than a cookie-cutter cut and paste website, like the free Google and WordPress versions, for instance? I don’t use templates. I design everything from scratch. You’ll understand why when you see the final product.
Choose a Premade Template
Confused? I just said I don’t use templates… Don’t fret. The templates I use are all my own and I designed and developed them from scratch. The end product however, is always unique. Think of your site as a person. The skeleton might be the same layout, but it’s the layers of muscle and skin that makes every person look different. Your website will be unique, don’t worry. I gaurantee it!
Maintenance & Updates
If you’d like me to handle the maintenance and updates of your site, I’d be happy to do that for a small monthly fee.
First I sit with you and we discuss your business and what you think your site should embody.
I come up with the basic design and layout of your site and present it to you.
After I’ve made any changes you wanted and I have your go-ahead, I refine the design process with more detail.
Web design done, it’s only the development left. Once I have your sign off, your website is usually live within one week of the process starting.
I have about 50 different website templates that I’ve developed over the years and one of them includes an insurance broker site. Click the link below to view!
Elegant Job Recruiters Website
Another one of my favourites. This time for a job recruiter. (Yes, even head hunters need help.)
Language School Design
A site that can be used in mulitple locations across the globe!
I specifically used these three examples to showcase the fact that I cater for every possible business and niche, no matter how small or obscure. I have 47 more templates for you to look at, so if you are interested, let me know which business niche you’re in and I can show you some samples.
