Hire Me: Custom Web Design for Creative Professionals

Filed under: General — Neil Aitken @ 10:50 am

Once I move to Vancouver, BC in late June, I will be embarking on a hybrid career of adjunct creative writing instructor and professional website designer.

There’s a lot of web designers out there, so why would someone hire me? Well, my goal is to work primarily for creative professionals: artists, poets, writers, screenwriters, playrights, etc. This includes professors and instructors in those same fields. Why? As a poet and writer, I’ve noticed that there’s a lot of writers and artists who could use a more professional look to their website. Some have been cobbled together with whatever online editor came with their domain. Others are obviously based off of a prepackaged template and have little if any individual content. All this would be fine at an early stage of a career — but, as a professional, you want to look professional. Looking professional can be expensive and often you’re charged for bells and whistles you don’t need.

This is where I come in — I provide an economical and yet professional website, custom designed as a unique representation of you and your work. I work closely with you to come up with a personal branding and theming appropriate for your site. I don’t use templates, but create every website design from scratch, ensuring that this look is yours and yours alone.
