To be quite up front, web design is not my specialty. If you are looking for a top notch design team in the Peoria area, let me know, and I can put you in touch with people I really respect. A top design firm’s work isn’t cheap, however. If you have a bit of computer knowledge and want to give it a go on a very tight budget, the products recommended below will allow you to create a solid site on a shoe string budget.
If you find yourself somewhere in between these two extremes, please go ahead and contact me. While design is not my specialty, if you are looking for a simple site on a reasonable budget, I may be able to help you out. I won’t hesitate to let you know if your job requires a more experienced designer. A few of the sites I’ve put together include Tech Powered Math, Culbertson and Allen law firm, and of course, Branding Juggler.
