Hey, how's it going? I'm Ron. I'm a web designer and consultant. I help clients with their website design, maintenance, and with any web-related questions. I like websites with simple designs and intuitive navigation. I work in Honolulu, Hawaii. My current interests are computers, Game of Thrones, and saving money.
My goal is to make a website that fits with your company's identity (colors, logo, fonts, etc). I look at other websites in the industry (including your competitors' websites) to gauge industry standards and best practices.
I'll make the design with your specifications in mind, but I also have a lot of input as well. The initial draft that I show you may not be what you had in mind. So, I offer revisions to make sure that you're happy with the end product.
I consider the little details related to websites. These details include checking the website load time, optimizing image sizes, making your website Google-search-friendly, and more.
The prices I quote are based on how much time I estimate it will take me. I can't give you a flat amount because every project I work on is different.
I make both big and small websites. If you only wanted a small and simple website without all the bells and whistles, hakuna matata. Just name your price and I will tell you what I can give you for that amount.
Note 1: Most work I do is contracted work. For non-contract work (maintenance or troubleshooting or other small fixes), my rate is $50/hour (as of 3/6/2013). My time spent on admin work (contracts, time logs, emails, etc) is never charged.
Note 2: I'm open to negotiating during contract talks, but only if you know how to negotiate.
Note 3: I've got for non-profits. 20% off contract prices.
Note 4: I pay the state excise tax. No hidden fees.
If you like what you see and have read so far, contact me. I'll answer any questions you have and I'll make sure that I can do what you need me to do within your budget and your deadline. We'll then meet up, work out contract terms, and I'll get started right away.
In my spare time, I enjoy blogging. "Ron's Blog" is a recent blog I made where I write about web design principles, business sense, legal issues, and other boring experiences and insights I have as a freelance web designer.
