I have been a Denver Website Designer for over 18 years, and have seen a lot of changes in CMS (editing) platforms. For an easy-to-edit website, I highly recommend Wix as a website platform, having designed websites for artists, small businesses, restaurants, architects, garden centers, seed companies, solar companies, magazines – pretty much any industry!

I also design and develop other website CMS platforms for more sophisticated or specific needs, such as Shopify for ecommerce, or Squarespace and Wordpress. I will recommend what platform I think is best for your needs.
Below are a few of my recent projects.

Anderson's La Costa Nursery Website Design
I worked with the the owner of Anderson's La Costa Nursery, a beautiful garden store in Encinitas, California to redesign their old website into a new platform that is super easy for her to edit and update with monthly specials, newsletters, photos and pages. The website design features a mobile-friendly layout, photo galleries, and SEO (Search Engine Optimization). Make sure to check out this gorgeous garden nursery if you're in the San Diego area.
Great Bay Work
Great Bay Work helps non-profits and businesses figure out the best way forward with challenges and complex situations that affect quality of life within the Chesapeake Bay watershed. We built this simple-designed website to inform her potential clients of some of the services she offers as an Environmental Consultant in the Chesapeake Bay watershed region.
Owner Shari Wilson was wonderful to work with, she also writes her inspiring NutsForNatives.com blog which talks about planting native plants in the Chesapeake Bay region with great "plant this or that" photos and posts to learn from. We are working on the SEO and a redesign for Nuts for Natives to help her wonderful posts get found by more people. I love working with smart people doing great things!
Colorado Gardener Magazine Website Dsign
It was great to work with Jane and Lise to create a new website for the Colorado Gardener publication. We designed the site to match their publication look and feel, with some extra flair including illustrations, as well as animated bumblebees and hummingbirds. We also incorporated advertising onto the homepage so they can regularly swap out banner ads as desired for their various sponsors. Most importantly, for SEO and helping their great articles get found, we build a custom articles & Q&A blog that allows us to post their articles from each new issue, which become searchable and ideally reach a much wider gardener audience on search engines like Google. If you haven't seen this magazine and you are interested in gardening in Colorado, make sure to pick up a free issue at your local garden center.
Solar Company Website Design
We worked with Sbrega Electric, a Fresno Solar Company, based in Coarsegold, California, to design a new website with a more cohesive feel. We had fun working on customized interactive illustrations to show off their various solar, backup battery and backup generators for efficient off-grid and on-grid homes and businesses.
Colorado School of Mines:
Transforming Lives Campaign
I worked with the Colorado School of Mines to design their microsite for their Transforming Lives Campaign, in which $456 million was raised for Mines. The website design incorporates lots of video, animation and subtle background image effects, and of course is mobile-friendly. As a Denver Web Designer, I was proud to work on this website for a local school.
Author Website Design for Sandra Dallas
I had the pleasure to work with the talented Sandra Dallas on her new author website design. We redesigned her old website, rebuilding and designing all of her book pages, adding her two new book releases, building a blog for her Piecework Newsletter, and we also optimized all the pages for SEO (search engine optimization) as well as setting up 301 redirects for any page URLs that changed to keep her current SEO rankings in the search engines. Her books are great reads, they are somewhat historical fiction about strong women characters living back in the late 1800s and early 1900s. I'm reading the Persion Pickle Club now, perfect, since my company is Picklewix!
Website Design for Restaurant Food Business
I worked with the team at Stanley Marvel, a family-owned restaurant supply Wholesale Food Distribution company based in Pennsylvania.

It was a pleasure to work with Claire, the owner of Brandmentoring.com on a new website to replace their old Wordpress website that was old and outdated and had been hacked recently (not uncommon with Wordpress websites!) Claire, the owner, was so nice to work with, and their website turned out beautifully! It also looks great on mobile, and features Wix Code in use to show/hide the header menu on the homepage as the user scrolls.
Reconstruction & Painting Company Website

The site features a subscription signup gift that will email subscribers with a link to view an eBook gift once they subscribe to the email newsletter.

We worked to rebuild all of the hundreds of pages including pulling over their existing blog, as well as building in good keywords and titles for Search Engine Optimization.
The owner recently retired and sold Mountain High Tree to a larger company with their own marketing department, so sadly the site as we designed it is no longer available.

This Shopify Website Design for Sandia Seed makes it easy for my client to sell their Hot Pepper Seeds online – most notably, they sell the green chile pepper seeds that are famously grown in Hatch, New Mexico for the hatch chile varieties.

Some of my favorite hot peppers: Anaheim Chile Pepper, Chimayo Chiles, Early Jalapeno, and Poblano Peppers.
The Shopify website also includes a Wholesale ordering form, discount coupon codes, and stamps.com integration.
