Does your website inspire you with the thrill of possibility?
Or does it make you feel sad and small?
You should never be made to feel sad and small. Your website should feel even more expansive than the biggest dream you hold for yourself. Your website should make you want to be the very best version of yourself that you can be. Every single time you look at it, you should literally marvel at how great it is – and how great you are.
Design-snobbery is not as shallow as it sounds. The design snob understands implicitly that a well made and thoughtfully designed product makes your life better. Why have a crappy thing when theres a good alternative? Put simply, design matters.
If your website is so far from your dream of what it should be that it is an embarrassment to you, it is holding you back and stopping you from being all you can be, online. That disconnect is also a turn off to a proportion of your audience. Some people who need to hear from you might never ever read your words because your logo and color scheme make them throw up in their mouth a little (harsh but fair).
I create crisp, minimal websites for a select few clients EACH MONTH, using either Wordpress or SquareSpace.
I believe that the web design process should be easy, respectful, drama-free and even fun. It is a collaborative process between you + me; a process that should feel inspiring, expansive and open.
