Idesign websites for individual people, organizations and companies. One of the things I tell people is you can have the best-looking website on the internet but if you are not attracting new people to it then what’s the point. The whole idea is to bring in new prospective clients or viewers.

How do you do this? Two main ways. Digital marketing and SEO. This article is how to use digital marketing in the form of one particular social media called YouTube. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest and YouTube are all different types and each one of those social media platforms have their own unique way of attracting new followers.

I try to guide people on what social media might be best for their business and I try not to limit their options because each one has their own following. Many times, I recommend that they try three or four different ones.

YouTube is in a class by itself and one social media that I wanted to know more about… only it’s not really a social media in the traditional sense. It is really a search engine that lets people use videos to help promote their businesses or idea’s.

I have a friend by the name of Sheri that teaches people how to use this amazing platform and she invited me and about 100 people to spend a Saturday in January with her at something called a YouTube Bootcamp.

Sheri not only taught us how to set up your own YouTube channel but how to upload your own video’s and how to promote them right inside of your very own channel.

We found out that YouTube is owned by Google so all the SEO (search engine optimization) that you use on Goggle you will use on YouTube so your videos can be found on line.

Mobile Responsive Website 

What does mobile responsive really mean?

Mobile responsive means your website is mobile friendly. How does the website or blog look on mobile devices such as cell phones?

Over 60% of all online browsing is currently being done on these small devices and the percentage will only get larger with more people using them in the coming years. You want your website to look good small. You want to make sure that your website adjusts itself to cell phones.

Website That Looks Good On Cell Phone

Websites are usually designed on a desk or laptop. This means that the website will be designed to in a horizontal (left to right) or landscape view. You can rotate your cell phone to view a website horizontally, but this is not what most people naturally do. They almost always view their cell phone vertically (up and down).

Website + Mobile Responsive = Looking Good

Making a website to be viewed correctly is almost like fitting a square peg into a round hole when you think about it. Most photographers understand this quandary. A horizontal image tells a much different story than a vertical one does.                                                                                  

Another BIG reason to make sure your website or bog mobile responsive is Google. Google will rank you much higher if your website is responsive than those websites that are not. It will waste all that hard work on SEO (search engine optimization when you are trying to have your website to rank higher.

Google accounts for over 5.7 billion searches every day. How will you and your website stay ahead of the competition?  

44% of Fortune 500 companies are not mobile ready. 

Google has been publishing details about how changes to its search algorithm will favor mobile friendly sites over non-mobile friendly ones.

Google even offers a mobile responsive test, so you can see how a visitor can use your page on a mobile device. You enter a page URL and receive a score.

We design all our WordPress websites with a premium theme installed to make our website mobile responsive. This is the only theme we use to design websites with because it is constantly being upgraded to keep up with the changing times of websites and internet use.

Cell Phone Website Design

This theme has an amazing page builder that allows us to view and change all three devices they will view it on. Desktop, iPad and cell phone.

The theme that we use does a great job adjusting most of the time but not always so it gives us this option of making changes no matter what is being viewed.

This tool is powerful and something that was not offered until recently. It has been worth every penny that we paid, and our customers reap the benefits.

Reinventing Myself Through Graphic Design

Reinventing Myself Through Graphic Design

Reinventing Myself Through Graphic Design

I was a professional photographer for 40+ years when I became disabled with a hip replacement that went south. I no longer had the mobility I once had so going back to school for graphic design was the next logical choice.

The same layout and placement of elements is very similar in many ways. Now, I design behind a big computer screen instead of a small digital computer called a camera.

I also have found the graphic art principles also apply to designing websites.

Finding Myself Through Graphic Design

I always admired the people in the graphic arts field because I saw the result of what they did swirling all around me in the world.

From labels on boxes to ads on TV, printed flyers to movie credits.

The ordinary street and store front signs and deep into the internet world of websites, social media, graphic design is all around us. 

Learning new software was the biggest obstacle when I first started graphic art school. It was a struggle at first because computers were not my strong point. I was very old school in many ways.

I had learned photography back in 1969 in high school using a 35mm camera and developing B&W film, and printing images in a darkroom the old-fashioned way. I was very hands on in a manual sort of way, like many people from my generation that started before computers came on the scene.

I think back on those computer and software struggles and it’s hard for me think of me having a hard time with them because I live and breathe with them now.

Graphic Art is Good Therapy


Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign

They are the three big engines that drive graphic design and are all made by Adobe. All very different from each other but, also very similar in many ways.

A.) Photoshop, to work on images and photographs to make them the best that they can be through cropping and image manipulation.

B.) Illustrator, to design individual pieces as in logo’s, individual flyers, ad’s or even adding text to images as a visual graphic for social media.

C.) InDesign, the software that designs multi-page newsletters, magazines or PDF’s for print and digital distribution. I will, many times make a main template for an organization that will be used for future designs with this program. InDesign is the hardest to learn because it can do so many different things on many different levels all at once so my schooling in this program was well worth it.

After I started school I realized website design would become part of this mix. My graphic art skills would be used to make websites look great in addition to functioning as they should.

The Software Design Process

I use Photoshop and Illustrator to design specific pieces, then bring them all together in to InDesign for a multi-page book or newsletter layout.

All the programs by Adobe play together extremely well and let me cross platform to each other easily and efficiently.

Drop and drag is the name of that game when work with them all at the same time.

That is the benefit of having three software programs that are made by the same company.

Many times, I will have all three open at the same time on three different computer monitors so I can be as efficient as possible. When working on a website I will have both Photoshop and Illustrator open with InDesign being the odd man out because WordPress is taking the place of InDesign as digital layout software.

I enjoy and love what I do now because it’s like using different elements of the same puzzle when I am in the designing mode. Graphic art and website design is a combination that allows me to branch out creatively in a couple different directions when the need arises.

I also like the fact that I help people, companies, churches, nonprofits and different organizations grow and become more successful at what they do with my creative skills.

This really is my idea of having fun.
