When I take on work, I treat everything as if it were my own. I want the end product to be something I am proud of but at the same time something that my Clients love. I started building websites back in 2002 and have learned a lot over the years. I know that having flashing logos and animated items moving around the screen is not only distracting but turns people away. When I sit down with our Clients, I ask a lot of questions (sometimes it seems like way to many questions), but my goal is to get their website built to their standards and get it out to the public.
Most people when visiting a website, they are going there for a specific reason and if they cant find the information quickly (according to stats from 2018, most people will only look for 10 to 15 seconds before moving on), they will look elsewhere. That is where I come in. I take a website and build it from the ground up and add things as I go. I keep it clean and simple and easy to use. The end result – visitors are able to find what they are looking for and that generates business for my clients. I always keep in mind that in todays busy world, more and more people are using cell phones and tablets rather then laptops and desktop PCs. When your site is designed, I want to make sure whatever device your customers are using, your site looks great and is still easy to use.
In Ontario, by the year 2025 all of Ontario (with respect to goods, services, facilities, accommodation, employment, buildings, structures and premises) must be Accessible for Ontarians with Disabilities ( AODA – https://www.aoda.ca/ ). By January 1, 2021 the law states that all Public Sectors and Large Organizations must comply with the Standards (WCAG 2.0 – https://www.aoda.ca/complying-with-aoda-wcag-2-0-distinguishable-content/ ). I have successfully completed a training course on this subject and as I build new websites, I will make sure they comply to the new regulations. There is no sense in waiting to comply, lets do it today so everybody will be able to use your resources.
If you would like to see a sample Questionnaire I use and see the questions I use, I have included a link to download it. When we meet to discuss the site in person, I will have a more detailed version which I bring with me. ( Website Design Sample Questionnaire )
