A Mobile First Website Designer and PHP Developer in Dallas, TX
Welcome and thank you for visiting my website!
As I go about on my daily routine, I am in the habit of obtaining business cards from any business that I visit and later on, analyze the design of their website. It is fascinating to see the different website design types and creativity that I come across. These website designs fall into one of these three categories!
1. DESKTOP WEBSITES
I am old enough to remember the 1990's when the internet first started getting popular. All websites developed around this era where categorized as a Desktop Website and were viewed ONLY on desktop computers and monitors.
How can you tell if your website is a Desktop Website? Try to view your website using a standard size Smartphone. Can you read and navigate your website without pinching and zooming in and out? If your website is not Mobile Friendly, your website needs a COMPLETE REDESIGN!
2. WEBSITES THAT USE A RESPONSIVE WEB DESIGN
The introduction of the 1st Smartphone forced the website designers to change their design strategy!
After Apple, Android, and Windows released their 1st Smartphone devices, there were a few problems:
Although 1st generation Smartphones had web browsers, the telecommunication infrastructure was very slow using second-generation 2G cellular networks.
The Desktop websites that companies had invested so much money on WERE NOT READABLE on these 1st generation Smartphone devices because they were designed for large screens!
A new website design strategy was developed to address the new Smartphone devices. It is called Responsive Web Design (RWD). One Tell-Tale sign is that there are two different webpage layouts. One for a Desktop and another for a Smartphone device. This allowed companies to keep the original investment of their Desktop Websites and still address the new Smartphone phenomenon.
Some of these website designs are not very efficient so you should use the Google mobile test to see if improvements can be made to your website. How did your website perform in this test?
3. RESPONSIVE WEBSITES USING CONTENT MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS
Anyone can build a website in a matter of hours using specialized software where the user drags and drop pictures and adds text into a document that represent a web page. These websites are powered by what is called a Content Management System. The most popular software products are WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, and Magento. Some website design agencies also use these products. The problem is that HACKERS LOVE websites that use these software products.
The most efficient method for detecting a website that uses a Content Management System is to use a FREE website called www.builtwith.com. Just type your website name and the results will show all of the technologies used by that website.
If someone is recommending a new website design project using a Content Management System software product, PLEASE CALL ME. I will demonstrate a tool for you that will prove to you beyond any doubt that this is not a good idea FREE OF CHARGE! You can then decide for yourself and assume all risks if you want to proceed.
A NEW WEBSITE DESIGN STRATEGY AS A RESULT OF MOBILE GROWTH
As I have explained, the website design principles and strategies have changed several times as a result of technological changes. In the last 10 years, there has been a revolution in mobile technology. The trends and statistics related to Smartphone growth, mobile internet traffic and cell phone carrier network speed improvements are UNDENIABLE!
As a result of these mobile trends, a new website design strategy has been developed and it is called Mobile First. A Mobile First design strategy does not just concentrate on developing for the small screen of a Smartphone. It is also used to deliver better usability of websites, develop better use of screen real estate and, reduce the amount unnecessary elements from pages.

WHY SHOULD YOU HIRE ME?
I have had a personal website since 1998 that has been redesigned twice, and built internal websites for the companies and teams that I have worked with throughout my career.
Currently, I ONLY design and develop websites with a Mobile First design strategy!
If you are in the market for a complete redesign or a new project, and already have a quote from another web design agency, I promise you that I can BEAT THEIR PRICES!
Most web design agencies bundle services. Instead, I offer an hourly rate. That means that you pay ONLY one time for the cost of designing and implementing your new website. After the work is completed, you can contact me anytime and I will only charge you an hourly rate if I need to logon to your server to fix a problem or solve an issue.
I provide proprietary website server automation features that the competition does not provide.
I only use CSS3, HTML5 and PHP which is the standard software used by professionals in building and deploying mobile websites. The smaller number of software products used keeps the design simple and faster to execute.
Email Forms that verify a valid visitor's email address domain name to cut down on SPAM emails.
REAL TIME EMAIL AND SMS SERVER ALERTS when suspicious activity and or malicious intent is detected from a website visitor!
Having 30 years of IT executive and technical experience, I know how to provide EXCELLENT CUSTOMER SERVICE.
