Web Design

I am a professional web designer located in Eugene, Oregon.

You may ask:  “Why hire Terry?”

I offer custom internet architecture – Most free web services offer web templates with restrictions to how information is navigated and presented.  Even agencies base their “web packages” off pre-coded web systems.  I approach each web project as a blank html file.  Together, we will find the best possible solution to organize and present your information.

I offer custom web graphics – A free website may allow you to place your logo in the header of your webpage, but a custom built website will re-enforce your identity by maximizing the impact of functional web elements.  Ordinary buttons, lists, headings and backgrounds are utilized to construct strong associations with your products or services.  Don’t have a logo or identity?  Better, yet!  I can provide exceptional illustration and graphic design services.

I offer free search engine optimization – I hand-write html code to utilize your keywords, your keyphrases and location.

I am a webmaster knowledgeable in:

I charge $70 an hour and I can provide an estimate and contract at no charge.  Most WordPress sites take me 15 hours to complete ($1,050).  These sites usually involve a modest amount of SEO work.

I use Opensource software to construct my webpages. I’ve installed and customized the following applications with my own html templates, text and graphics.

Content Management Systems

  • WordPress – A W3C valid blogging site. WordPress offers many of the same features as Drupal with minor differences.(Example)
  • Helios Calendar – A browser controled calendar / time management system. The easy to read calendar displays events as links.  The application also doubles as a complex newsletter generator. (Example)

Music and Image Galleries

  • emAlbum – software that automates the management, organization and viewing of images. It features timed slideshows, image captions and endless images and sub-directories. (Example)
  • Vespa – web application that organizes albums and their mp3 files.   (Example)

Newsletter Emails

  • Vertical Response – Provides online newsletter manager, event marketing, surveys, direct mail postcards and social media content.
  • MailChimp - MailChimp helps you design email newsletters, share them on social networks, integrate with services you already use, and track your results.

E-Commerce Systems

  • Prestashop – My choice for e-commerce software.  Developed in Europe, this application has an easy-to-navigate control panel, it can be customized easily and installed without much troubleshooting. (Example)
  • Zen Cart – A popular choice of e-commerce software.

Dating Websites

  • VLDpersonals – Some of the default features were: Instant chat rooms, video, audio, friends, favorites, dozens of search options and a complex events calendar.  (Example)

Google Analytics

  • Google Analytics - Google lets you measure your advertising ROI as well as track your Flash, video, and social networking sites and applications.  I study and understand how to analyze this data to make your website more effective.

Flash and Director

  • Adobe Flash Player is the standard for delivering high-impact, rich Web content. Designs, animation, and application user interfaces are deployed immediately across all browsers and platforms, attracting and engaging users with a rich Web experience. (Director Example), (Flash Example)

Random Testimonial

“Having worked with both designers and programmers, it was refreshing to find both skills in Terry’s toolbox. He’s a dynamic graphic designer and writes clean html by hand – not a combination you find easily.
“I would recommend Terry to anyone looking for a dedicated, creative and hard-working individual to enhance their company’s graphics and/or website development projects.”
