Website Design

(by Christopher Bird)

I can design and develop an attractive, usable, and accessible website for your small business. I will focus on your business' goals while working to create a positive user experience for your visitors. I am still in the process of building my portfolio, and consequently am willing to take on projects at considerably below-market rates. If you require a new website, or a redesign of an existing one, please feel free to contact me.

My Design Philosophy

I practice standards-based web design. Instead of using proprietary, browser specific markup, I hand code in semantic, valid XHTML and CSS. I separate style from content, producing a leaner markup. This translates to website designs that are:
roofers Longview
roof contractor
residential roofing El Paso TX
roofing in Rocky Mount
roofers Oro Valley
roofing La Quinta
residential roofing Niagara Falls NY
roofer in Lawton
cheap roofers
roof replacement in Bonita Springs FL
roofing Union City CA

roof replacement Richardson TX
cheap roofers Jefferson City MO
roofing Rochester
roofing contractors Warwick
roofers Alexandria

  • Accessible. My designs are intended to be accessible to as wide an audience as possible, including individuals with slow internet connections and disabilities.
  • Compatible. I ensure my designs work well in today's broad array of browsers, screen sizes, and non-traditional devices, and will continue to work well in tomorrow's.
  • Optimized for Search Engines. My designs are built to achieve high rankings on search engines such as Google, Yahoo, and MSN.
  • Manageable. My designs are easy to maintain, change, and upgrade.


(for Beginner Web Designers)

There are myriad resources on the web for both the professional web designer and novice alike. In fact, there's too much. This can make learning web design incredibly overwhelming. My "for beginner by beginner" journal is an attempt to guide the novice web designer in understandable terms. Feel free to search my journal for articles of interest, but I would recommend starting with my first article.
