Freelance Web Designer

I’m a Freelance Web Designer located in Calgary, Canada. My training is in the Design and Delivery of Website Content, and my chosen ‘niche is that of a Website Facilitator whose objective is to provide affordable and practical Web Solutions suitable to any situation. The World Wide Web has progressed into a platform for a wide range of clientele, from individuals such as Artists and Entrepreneurs eager to interact with a global audience, to medium and large businesses striving to expand into commerce on an unlimited scale. The advantage gained by procuring my services is the personal touch I bring to every project, because by clearly understanding your goals and defining your options we can establish the parameters for the process together and ensure satisfactory results.

Services

I use Dreamweaver, Fireworks, Flash, Javascript, PHP and MySQL to design and build dynamic websites current with the latest in web development standards, practices, and technologies. I also provide custom Video Tutorials that assist and instruct the client in the operation of their own website. This can include things like performing maintenance and content management tasks normally controlled by the web designer, thereby saving you time and money.

I charge $60/hr for my services, but I also have some starter website packages listed below as base pricing models to give you a better overall idea of what the minimum cost may be for an entire project.

For $120 per year I provide the webspace for your website which includes technical assistance and troubleshooting, but not upgrades or updates.

As I mentioned, the first year’s hosting is free if I’m creating a website for you (and you must be hosted with me for at least 3 years as long as your website is active).

All Updates, Upgrades, and Online Support for your website are subject to my hourly rate of $60/hr.
