No matter the market you serve, whether you’re a wedding planner, photographer, salon, you know you’re busy! You should trust your Website is doing the heavy lifting for you.
If you’re still using an old, outdated Website platform or theme you could be having issues that weren’t addressed in the design phase.
And if you want people to trust and enlist in your services, a professionally-designed website that grows with your business is the first step. And Showit delivers – it’s revolutionizing the website building process and is the platform of choice in my boutique Graphic & Showit Web Design Studio.

Many of my designs have copy to guide sections, giving you a solid foundation to build upon; you’re absolutely welcome to tweak and refine to suit your business, or elaborate upon headlines for well-rounded copy that sells your expertise.
Remember, copy should be easily scannable. Don’t over-do it! Alongside your website design, your copy should immediately tell prospects what you do, where you’re located, and capture their interest so they move along smoothly throughout the rest of the page and through different parts of your website.
If you still struggle to come up with copy, consider the following framework:
What is the problem your audience faces?
How does your business address this problem?
How does your audience feel after you’ve resolved this problem?
I use design principles to effortlessly guide the visitors eye throughout the design.
This includes using a polished color palette and make white space (blank areas) a strategic element to highlight and separate elements and give an orderly look to the website.
This goes for text as well: leading or line-spacing for body text should be between 120% and 145% of the font size to improve readability.
Mobile-optimization – mobile visits account for over 50% of all web visits! I make sure the layout is optimized and enhanced to improve navigation and user flow.
