GOOD WEBSITE DESIGN MATTERS

but a site can't just look pretty.

FIRST IMPRESSIONS COUNT.

It only takes a user 10 seconds to form an opinion of your website that determines whether they’ll stay or leave, so those first few moments are critical. If the design is DIY, outdated, or difficult to use, it creates a bad first impression. You certainly can “do it yourself”, but often at a sacrifice for quality or establishing trust with potential customers. A website that represents YOU should be beautiful, effective and professional.

PRETTY FUNCTIONAL.

Looks matter, but I go beyond the pretty face. Your website will be packaged with technical perks such as SEO, speed analysis and security against malware and hacks. And of course,  responsive on all devices from desktops to mobile, and optimized for usability with strategy and conversion goals. Because a website can’t just look pretty, it’s got to be functional, too.

I've got experience. And it shows.

After over 20 years of professional design experience developing websites for all different types of businesses, I know what works. I have worked with plastic surgeons, physiotherapists & lawyers to construction companies, yoga instructors, and small start-ups running out of their kitchen. See my design portfolio for more examples and how I can help you build your brand and improve your digital strategy.

one girl. one computer. big results.

Websites are marketed to people as being simple. “Just DIY in 5 minutes!” Trust me, it’s not that simple. Years of professional experience has taught me what works and what doesn’t. You know your business, and I know how to translate that into an effective, accurate brand on the web. A 5 minute DIY website will never give you an edge against your competitors.

And in a world where websites require no previous knowledge, and “you can do it yourself in 5 minutes” … it can’t hurt to remember the days where code was written by hand, required a calculator and some decent skills. I started out back in 2003 designing and developing all my own websites from scratch, learning the ins and outs of how HTML and css works and why. This has given me great insight when building my favourite type of sites – WordPress – one of the most popular and powerful CMS platforms around.

The combination of up to date responsive design combined with the knowledge and skill of the good old days produces some pretty big results.

HOW I WORK.

In order for a design project to be successful, we need to be a good overall fit. Customer service is a high priority, and for that reason, I don’t take on too many projects at once. I place high importance on properly gauging my schedule and successfully reaching project deadlines.

WHO MY CLIENTS ARE.

My clients are a blend of small business owners and entrepreneurs. They understand the value of a quality designed website and the experience that I bring to each and every project. I’m always available, but nearly all work is conducted via email as this gives me more flexibility with scheduling and workload. While I do try to provide structured office hours, I am not your standard 9-5, so let’s make sure we are a good match first.

CHANTAL CREATED MY

DREAM WEBSITE
“I gave Chantal my inspirations and basic ideas to get the ball rolling. The first proof that I was sent was slick and bang on. The feedback I gave her was creatively put into the website and the adjustments were made quickly so I could see the changes. Chantal worked her magic on every page of the website making it unique and fresh for my clients. If you want a professional service with top-notch results, I highly recommend ink design to showcase your product/service.”
