Web Site Design Philosophy - scroll at right to read all / X to go to menu
The web sites I have designed vary from the simple to the complex. I like to custom design web sites that fit the tastes of the customer. I especially like working with artists [musicians, actors, painters, sculptors, etc.] and other creative people who like a unique look that fits their unique identity. On the other hand, many want simplicity, utility, practical layouts and are happy with purchasing excellent web templates and then customizing them to a quality look. It doesn't matter. The customer's taste and desire has to outweigh mine at all times. So as we plan the layout of every site, I try to get at the customer's taste and preferred look and then go from there.

linkupministries.org - This site is worth looking at for no other reason than its purpose and content. Link Up Ministries was created by Pastor Barry Smith, a member of Bikers for Christ, for outreach to the so-called "dregs of the earth" in obedience to the words of Jesus who calls Christians to "go out into the highways and byways and compel them to come in" [Luke 14:23].

This site is feature rich, with a custom designed logo I created. It contains a sharp Flash Intro into the site. I created the puzzle graphics on the opening page with Adobe Photoshop among other things. The Flash Photo Galleries on the site have some great music playing on them. The site also uses a creatively designed flash drop down menu, Google maps, scrolling features, PayPal donation buttons, specifically designed graphic forms, and a graphic designed page layout unique to the site itself which I also created. Scroll Down to the right and check it out.

The Hobbit - This site is from Web Templates.com. It was designed by Arcsin. I was going to modify the content to GaryHinchman.com but the theme is just too cool. We can create sites like this for you. But this one is just too delightful to change unless you have a business in Hobbiton, Rivendell, or other such shires in Middleearth. But I am sure we can do something for someone opening a business in the Celestial City or in Wonderland.
