Portfolio

Built, designed, developed, and managing websites to keep them current and engaging.

Services

The following considerations are made while creating and editing content, designing, and developing mobile responsive websites:

User experience

Mobile consumers' requirements and expectations differ from those of desktop users. On mobile devices, website designs are simple to access and utilize, with big buttons, clear menus, and concise content.

Performance

Mobile users frequently have slower internet connections than desktop users. Create websites that are optimized for speed and efficiency by employing strategies such as image compression and code minification.

Accessibility

Websites that are simple to use for all users, including those with impairments. Avoid employing Flash and other inaccessible technologies by utilizing conventional HTML and CSS components.

Conciseness

It is critical to keep the text brief and to the point. Use jargon and technical terminology sparingly, and divide big paragraphs into smaller sections.

Clarity

Clear and concise text that can be quickly scanned and easy to understand.

Engagement

Use of graphics to enhance and visually appeal to the content. Imagery is used to break up text and make it simpler to read.
