A buddy of mine is a big bike enthusiast. With over 20 years of professional industry experience, he decided to start a bike fit company here in Colorado Springs. His services helps serious riders increase their performance by creating a more comfortable and enjoyable ride by properly fitting the rider to their bike. Here is a bicycle website design I created for him.
Project Move Coaching is a Colorado Springs based company. Founder William Whitman, is a master practitioner, I use numerous methods that include SCOPE assessment, Energy Leadership Index surveys, self-perception charts, and core energy coaching methods, which help clients uncover what drains their energy and prevents them from achieving their goals and reaching their full potential.
Our goal for this website was to create a beautiful and elegant design that expressed a sense of professionalism and taste with William. We needed to show the audience that William followed his own words of wisdom. That guidance that allows each of us to reach our greatest potential. After all, how can you help shape someones life when your own is in turmoil. You can’t. So we built a site that proudly promoted Williams beliefs systems within the structure of his own life. The user can easily navigate their way around the website while picking up a few helpful tips along the way. The call-to-actions guide the user to schedule a free consultation with William. The scheduling system notifies William of the appointment, while automatically scheduling him into his Google calendar. The user also receives a follow up email and reminders as the they near the appointment date.
Here is a photography website design. My friend Joy is an excellent baby and maternity photographer out of Colorado Springs. She came to me inquiring about revamping her WordPress website with the intention of creating a better looking portfolio presentation and getting more leads. We created a simple masonry style photo gallery and some call-to-action buttons that would direct the user to contact Joy. Done and done.
Just finished mocking up a roofing website design for Roof leak Investigators. This site is designed to be very simple and user friendly.

Here is an asphalt website design for Asphalt Advanced Services in Colorado Springs. There current site has excellent SEO, it just needs a little love on the visual side of things. We spent the last month rebranding their image, onto the website now.
We’re currently in the process of developing a real estate website design for Colorado Springs company, Mountain Peak Realty. I always put together a mockup of the home page to give the client an idea of how the site will look and function. This also allows us to easily make changes prior to actually building the site in WordPress. Here’s what we came up with.
We’ve been working with an investing company out of Plano, Texas. They’re restructuring their business and need to promote their bold new ideas. So we’re designing a new investing website for them, here is our first concept. I’m sure there will be plenty of changes to come as we dive a bit deeper into this project. It’s nice to have a first draft though, this gives us a frame of reference as well as a sense of direction.
I always have my clients send me a Word doc with a complete breakdown of the site, including the content for each page. Even then it can be tricky some times to make sense of what the client is actually wanting. So putting together a template in Adobe Illustrator gives us and the client a better idea of what the site is going to look and feel like. We can hammer out all the tweeks rather quickly prior to actually building the site in WordPress. This saves us time and usually a headache or two.
Heroes Home Care out of Colorado Springs asked us to put together a website design mockup for them. Below is my breakdown of the homepage along with a JPEG mockup. All images are temporary fillers but you get the idea. Designing sites in Illustrator, prior to actual construction, is a great way get a good visual reference of the direction you’re going to go in. It can also save you a ton of time. Work smarter, not harder ding-dong.
Header – Logo followed by call-to-action on the left Menu – Services will have a sub menu for the services offered. Main photo – This area can be a slider to navigate through various images or services offered however I don’t think it’s necessary. I like the single image with your logo and slogan, along with another call-to-action. I imagine the audience isn’t going to be too tech savvy, simple is better. This image is nice, would be better with a senior veteran in place of the elderly lady. About us – Simple message that lets the audience know what you do and the area you serve. This will help with SEO as well. Services – Simple and direct, each image will link to a separate page about each service with detailed information. Testimonials – We can rotate out new testimonials as needed, this is great for building trust with new clients. Call us today – Another call-to-action (I use the word call instead of contact because I know how important it is to have that personal experience with someone and emails just don’t deliver). I think you’re more likely to get someones business by making it personal. Footer – Another logo for brand awareness with a short description about your business. Followed by navigation and contact info.
