portions of a site are doled out to several different people. Here,

site. Ecommerce website design can be made available to you as well

I use graphics software extensively to adjust your

new business, I can help you with logo design.Take a
look at my portfolio by clicking on any of the pictures
or go to the link below for more of my sites. There are
comments and pricing suggestions with each site.
Probably the most important consideration for most small business
is what is the average cost to design a web site? Most sites listed
on the Internet as providing this service do not list custom web site
design cost. Since it plays a large part in deciding what sort of
presence you would like on the Web, it's helpful to have some idea.
Here, I've provided notes and pricing suggestions with each of the
I will work closely with you to provide exactly the web site design
you want, with or without hosting. I would like to point out that
I also operate a graphic design business. This lets me cater to my
clients in an expanded capacity by maintaining consistency in the
media from web site logo to business cards, brochures, fridge magnet
calendars, posters, bookmarks, magazine ads as well as the web site
The second most important consideration for most small businesses
after cost of web site design is 'How can I achieve the best possible
ranking on the Internet?' There's no tried and true way of achieving
the spot at the top because the search engines often change their
algorithms or methods of ranking web sites. However, there are ways
to give the best possible boost to your web site.
While trying to provide exactly the web site design you want, I will
be keeping in mind what keyword phrases will draw you the most clients
and will be attempting to work those in as often and naturally as
possible into the body text on your site. This is what most search
engines are looking for in a site and can have a substantial effect
on your ranking.
So you must keep in mind that I will need something of a free hand
with the text, headings and titles on your site.
The following graphic represents a Flash logo designed for a gentleman
that owns a nostalgic collectibles website. He wanted something that
reflected what his business is about.
Since he sells collectibles for nostalgic television shows and
movies, it made sense to give his logo a movie theme, such as the
old fashioned reel movies. The characters move across the screen while
the True Legends text, named for his website, fades in. Click on the
graphic below to see the Flash file.
Besides his collectibles site this client also has Fun Fabrics, a
site that sells specialty fabrics, with many types of printed materials
including John Deere, Coca Cola, Winnie the Pooh, Betty Boop, Nascar
After working together to develop the True Legends header with the
film strip, Jim decided he would like something with as much movement
for the Fun Fabrics header.
If you would like to see another moving logo header designed in Flash
go to Fun
Fabrics where you can see it in action.
Welcome to Vector North Web Design!
NOTE: In the past few years Apple has caused quite a ruckus
in the industry, and while I used to design many sites in Flash, I
no longer will now. So
if for any reason you cannot get a site that you have clicked on to
show up, it is because it is entirely or partially built in Flash
and you may not have a plugin, or are using a Mac product.
Below are some examples. See page two for design notes on these.
