Back in 1995 when I started designing my first web site, things were much different. There was one browser, Netscape, a large monitor was 800×600, and most people accessed the Internet with dial up modems.
Two decades later, things have gotten better, but at the same time they’re a lot more complicated. Sure the broadband speed is nice and you don’t have to worry about download speed as much as you used to. But now your website can be viewed on everything from a smart phone with a tiny screen, to monitors that have resolutions of 2560×1440 or more. Windows, Macs, Internet Explore, Firefox, Chrome, Safari; there’s a lot to test on these days to make sure everything works.
That’s why more than ever it’s important to have your website built by a professional, someone who knows how to make your website perform well on all the devices out there. Someone who knows how to design it from the beginning to do well with search engines, and someone who will give your site a polished design that reflects well on your business.
Matt Knowles, the owner of Aesthetic Design & Photography, has been designing web sites for small businesses since 1996. You are invited to review our web design philosophy to see if we are a match for you. Building, maintaining and marketing a web site requires many skills and services. Our services page details everything that Aesthetic Design & Photography can provide to get you started and keep you running.
Aesthetic Design & Photography has designed numerous web sites for Humboldt County businesses, but we’ve also designed sites for businesses throughout the nation, and even several international companies. Much of our business comes from referrals from happy clients, and several clients have been repeat customers, coming back for a second or third web site. We are proud of our ability to work with and train customers who are new to the web. For new clients we are happy to schedule at no charge a one hour consulation to discuss your needs and our services. Through referrals, we have worked with many clients outside of Humboldt County and the Bay Area, and we have satisfied customers who had their web sites completed without ever meeting us.
