Need web site developer
I have a consulting business for entrepreneurs and small
businesses and I need a fairly simple website with a blog. I
am looking for someone reasonably priced and reliable who
can help me. Jonathan
Check out Maiya Holliday at Mangrove Web Development. She
did my site (www.bluebridgeproject.com) and I highly
recommend her. She was reasonably priced, very timely and
walked me through how to update and manage the site myself.
Plus, she lives in Oakland so it was great to meet in
I used Burning Ear Media (Elisa Lewis) to create my small
business website. She was great - fun, easy, quick
- just perfect for my needs. The contact info is on her
I can refer you to the person who did my website - she is
very reliable and her rates are very reasonable! She can
also help with any content writing you may want, and what
the heck, I'll say it again, she is reliable. She's very
quick to respond to email and update things that need
updating, add features that need to be added, etc. The site
she did for me is rfreeling.com, if you want to check that
out - most pages are static, and she added a blog. She can
be reached at email@example.com or 614/623-6426.
Need a great web designer
I work for a small design-build company located in Oakland.
We do high-end residential work with a modern sensibility.
We are looking for guidance in revamping our whole line of
publicity materials including our website, brochures, email
newsletter, other social media, t-shirts, etc. The goal is
to create a more polished and coherent image which reflect
the type of architectural work we do. We prefer to work with
a local firm or an individual designer. Portfolio includes
design or architectural clients would be most relevant.
Thanks in advance.
Check out Sarah Lenz of Smart Loft Studio. She designed my
law firm's logo, website, business cards, and also fixed my
many technology troubles. She's affordable and organized, in
addition to being fun and arty. . www.smartloftstudio.com
For great web design, check out Elisa Lewis at
www.burningearmedia.com. Elisa is creative, efficient and
great to work with... she created an easy to maintain
website for me and showed me how to manage it. The whole
process was a great experience and I have recommended her a
number of times. Check out her website and see if she might
be a good fit for you. Heidi
I have someone great to recommend. Her name is Irena Becker
and her company is Creatage. It can be found at
www.creatage.com. When I started my business, I looked
around locally for someone who could do what you are asking
and was actually pretty disappointed by the lack of artistic
vision of many of the developers using wordpress. Everyones
sites looked the same as everyone else's. So I went on
ODesk and found Irena. She is based in Milwaukee but that
posed no problems. Most of our correspondence was through
email with a few calls. I am so pleased with the final
result. And she really helped me keep costs down.
Lawrence McKendell did my logo, wordpress site and business
FB page. He was extremely open to find ways to work with my
ideas and needs and went way above and beyond what I
expected. I'm very pleased with his work on the design and
the ease of using the website. His website is

pleasure to work with. Her information is: petra

Web Designer for Open Adoption
We are adopting through open adoption and need to create
both a brochure and website for potential birthmothers to be
able to contact us. There are some recommendations for
websites on BPN, but they are more business oriented, and
our adoption agency has some referrals, but we want ours to
stand out. Can anyone recommend a designer who might be
more family oriented?
I know a Berkeley husband and wife design team...Michael
Wong and Leslie Firestone (who have also been through open
adoption). I've worked with them on a couple of occasions
over the years. They are quite talented and super attentive.
check out websites if you would like to see some of their
works and to contact them.
In need of a great web designer
I own a yoga/dance studio, and would like some help with
putting up a website. I would like to have an elegant, well
designed site to attract new people and communicate the
overall sensibility and approach of our unique studio. I
know there are a lot of web designers out there, but can
anyone suggest a designer who is creative, has excellent
follow-through, is fun to work with and affordable? If you
have worked with someone you really like, please post!
Thanks so much! Maxine

and I've referred him to about 6 friend/colleagues and
they've been satisfied as well.

design and build a website for our Berkeley nonprofit. The

and will design exactly what you are looking for. She has a
great eye and uses color beautifully. I was very happy with
the final product and would use her again in a minute. Check

a great website. Good Luck! Anon
I highly recommend Mike Waters with Studio678. He created my
website many years ago, then recently updated it to
WordPress because it a) gets better google hits and b) I can
easily update it anytime. He's been doing this a long time,
really knows his stuff, speaks fluent English (and not just
techno-geek) and pays attention to not just creating a good
looking website but ensuring the world finds you. geraldine

Web Designer for Holistic Practitioners
I am looking for a web designer for my massage therapy
practice. I currently have a website but would like to
enhance it to include features that would enhance my
business. Ultimately, my desire is someone who is really
good with graphics as well as in the web marketing/sales end
of it who has experience with websites for massage
therapists/holisitic practitioners and is reasonably priced.
I currently have someone who is very inexpensive (a major
plus and why I haven't sought out anyone else) but lives on
the East Coast and does not seem to be too interested in
working with enhancing my profit margin. Thanks. Rita
I can highly recommend Pagepoint Web Solutions in El
Cerrito; I've used them for my own website and am very
pleased with their work. They have a complete in- house team

Web Design & Development ? Print, Logo & Identity Design
Creative Marketing Solutions ? Consulting & Training
I would like to recommend KOCS, a small web development
business with a background in non-profit management,
fundraising and marketing. The owner, Julia designed and
created our website, www.gppaarchitects.com, a firm who
specializes in Accessibility and Universal Design. We are
really pleased with the results and the attention to detail
during the development process. You can reach her via her
website at www.kocsbrand.com
I have retained KOCS Branding, a small web design firm in El
Cerrito to develop my business logo/online identity and
website in October. The owner, Julia, worked with me to
define my marketing goals, ensured that they were within the
service mission of my company, and delivered a site that is
professional, yet creative and unique. The website she
created, www.Napatax.net also has a Content Management
feature, which means that with minimum amount of training, I
can edit all text and photos myself, eliminating any
additional or monthly recurring expense after completion of
the web site. As a former director of a non-profit agency,
she would be the perfect candidate for developing your site
as she has a keen understanding of the financial limitations
that small businesses and organizations face. Overall, I
would absolutely recommend KOCS to any company in need of
creative, cost-effective and user-friendly design for their
web site and branding and marketing materials. You can ask
for a free consultation by going to the website at

Website Designer and Blog Master needed
I run a small garden design company and need someone who can
create a website for me as well as help me make some changes
to my blog. I would like someone who can create a simple,
clean and well-organized website that is not too animated or
too commercial looking. Quick and affordable are pluses too!
I have a small video production company and we use Rocky
Laber at DSD Interactive http://www.dsdinteractive.com/
He sets up sites so you can add content and blogs yourself
using Wordpress. It is easier than I thought, and Rocky is
very skilled in his craft.

have worked with many- is Saill White:
She is amazing. She designed and programmed my site so
check out her work: http://incultureparent.com
She is local here in Berkeley as well.
Web Site designer - freelance consultant
All of the recommendations for web site designers are old.
I'm looking for a local person to do freelance consultant
work for small e-commerce site who is up to date,
understands SEO, is detailed oriented, and good problem solver.
I have been very happy with the website work done by Tod
Abbott and Karen Nierlich, of Almost Everything
Communications. I wasn't sure that I'd be able to work with
them, because their own website doesn't appeal to me
personally. Nonetheless, they created a site that really
suits me (check it out, if you like: www.uniquelaw.com);
unlike other designers I tried, they didn't insist that my
site had to look like every other legal site in the country.
Even better, they managed to create a design that I really
love, without much helpful input from me at all. Most people
would be stymied by a customer saying ''I don't know, I just
don't like it THAT way'' and ''make it, you know, prettier''
without anything more specific, but Tod and Karen handled
the entire process with grace and aplomb.
They're friendly and approachable, and their rates are very
reasonable. You can reach them by phone (510-527-9920) or
through their website at www.almost-everything.com.
Hi! I would like to recomend to you Karen Nierlich with

designer and she can also offer you the search engine

familiar with FTP. I'd like to have the site adapted so that I
can maintain/update most of it myself in the future, and am
looking for a designer who can help me with that.
Jana (pronounced Yanna) Branisa is our web designer, and she is
great. She set us up with FTP so we can exchange large files
with our clients. She uses a system called Wordpress, and she
showed us how to make changes as we wish. She has trained our
staff person to update the website. She knows business and
marketing, and she is very sweet. We now appear on the first page
in a Google search for Oakland Video Production, thanks in part

aesthetic needs and preferences while staying within my modest

be contacted through her website: www.emilyadesigns.com

large companies like Kaiser and has even done work for the City of
Oakland. 510-761-4865 or email@example.com
A former secretary for our church hooked us up with her friend JP
Collins at Pylon Studios. He took our project seriously and did a
complete and professional job for us (even though we were a
pro-bono project for him). He even designed the site in such a
way that it would be easy for us to update and add to. I highly
recommend him! check out his site: www.pylonstudios.com and ours
www.sothb.org. Give me a call if you have any questions.
I have just the person for you! Sarah Lenz created my logo,
business plan and website and I could not be happier with her
work. I have received tons of positive responses for the website
she designed. Sarah is very creative- she is an artist- and I
found her to be exceptionally reliable and responsive. Check out
her website at: www.smartloftstudio.com
Creating website - godaddy.com?
I am creating a website for my small business and would like to try to
do it as simply and inexpensively as possible. I've heard about
www.godaddy.com. Would love to hear if anybody has used it and what
you're experience has been. Also, if you can recommend any other sites
that have worked well, I'd love to hear that as well.
I use godaddy to create my website. godaddy has a web based tool for
doing this which does not require you to know HTML. The tool is called
website tonight... it isn't perfect but it works. I am an experienced
geek but never created a website before i created mine. I use godaddy to
host my site as well for about $5 per month...
It took me about 2 days (that's 2 days of work, 16 hours) to create
something i wanted to publish (that included some edit time). And the
best part is: it's empowering, it feels great to have done it, and i can
keep it simple or make it as complicated as i want.
The downside: the website tonight application is kind of slow at times
and has crashed the browser on occasion. It's best to back up your text
and images on your own computer (using offline back-up procedures)... As
for intuitive? Well, it's ok, probably on a scale of 1 (hard) to 10
(easy) it's a 7... it does take some work to understand it.
I say go for it, start with simple, but start! It's inexpensive and it's
yours. there are a few tricks to getting the godaddy logo off your site...
Go Daddy's website and web building tools are a nightmare to work with;
just really hard to navigate, so many ads, not even the cheapest, etc.
I recently built a website using Wordpress on an ISP called bluehost.com.
I liked it because the price was very reasonable. I got unlimited disk
space, bandwidth, lots of subdomains, a hundred Mysql databases, lots of
email addresses, etc. I've heard good things about pair.com and laughing
If any of this sounds greek to you, or no fun, you might not want to
create your own website. Wordpress.com lets you create a blog for free,
and then you can add on other features and get rid of the ads. Wordpress
is very easy for newbies to use. You can make it look just like a regular
website, not a blog. I haven't worked with them directly, though.
Any way you go, have fun!
Hello, I did not create my website via GoDaddy, but my web designer
suggested Go Daddy as the host. I've had zero technical problems and their
rates are very reasonable. I recommend them, but can't speak to the
I use Hurricane Electric (http://www.he.net/) for hosting my small
business web page. They are extremely reliable and affordable and are a
local company based in Fremont.
If keeping a strictly limited budget is your goal, I would go with a blog
style site. You can use services like blogger.com, vox.com or
wordpress.com to get your site up and running very inexpensively.
Just because they are called a blog, doesn't mean you don't have static
pages and hosting is included. The primary downsides to the free services
is you don't own the domain name and they aren't as customizable.
One of the keys to having a website is making sure people can actually
find you. You will want to spend a little time making sure your meta
title and description are unique and use keywords people may use to search
for your product. The text in the body as well should be very relevant.
For my own site, I use SF based Laughing Squid: www.laughingsquid.com
which runs about $10/month + cost for the domain name.
There are a lot of additional considerations so feel free to reach out.
Website updates for small non-profit
I work for a small non-profit. We have to change/add things to our website monthly, and I think our current website person is charging a lot, mostly because he's slow. Usually, we need to add a few events to our listings. Occasionally, we need to change content. For a 3-month period of adding events (3 per month, already written out), we were charged over $700!! My husband also has a web person for his website, but she doesn't charge nearly that amount. Unfortunately, she's unavailable to us. Can anyone recommend a decently-priced person to help with our site?
I have a fabulous webmaster/designer. Hold on to your seats, he is 16 years old. I worked with professionals who drove me crazy, being late, or not doing what I asked for, not answering calls or emails and were expensive. This young man is smart, responsive and very skilled. I had clear ideas about what functionality I wanted on my website and basic ideas about how I wanted it to look. He has been resourceful, quick and extremely professional, much more so than any of the several ''professional'' adults I had worked with before. I cannot recommend him more highly. When I first started working with him, I had a deadline and he met it. The site is not completed, but that is because I have been slow getting him the information. He has always implemented whatever I need within 48 hours or sooner. You cannot go wrong. If you want to see an example of his work, you can view my website artfulsurgery.com
Nir Jacobson firstname.lastname@example.org
Here's a solid, efficient solution for your website maintenance needs. My friend Harry Orner has provided this service to small businesses and a nonprofit, and he agreed the fee that you paid seemed way out of line. Harry charges an hourly rate and is fine with routine, modest needs. He also serves on the board of a non-profit so he gets it!
Harry's contact info is email@example.com or (925) 788-7862 cell. He'd be happy to talk with you about what your nonprofit needs and expects.

Web site update - literate in html and css
I am updating my professional web site and I am looking for help with
someone who is literate in html and css code.
Has anyone used someone
more recently to improve an already existing web site? I would love some
contact information of web folks in the medium price range category.
I highly recommend Kari Gim. Check out her website at
http://www.slimgim.com and prepare to be impressed. This is
a home-grown, woman-owned business! I know nothing about
websites except that I like them to be user-friendly and
attractive. Kari does both in spades, she asks the right
questions from the start.

Web design for small business
I have a small business and was looking for someone to design a
website for me. We have an existing one but it needs updating.
Jennifer Curry Pham is a fabulous web designer and user interface designer. She
has worked at many internet companies including Ofoto, AOL and Macys.com. She has
also designed and build internet sites for many small businesses, including my
husband's: www.orenskitchen.com. She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
I had a website previously with Yahoo Small Business Web
Hosting. It was quite affordable, had lots of web-design tools,
or you can use FrontPage software to build your site on it if
you like. Overall a good choice for small business needs.
Just an FYI, consider what kind of traffic, what you will offer
such as just information & pics, product sales, referrals,
mailing list, etc. on your website you are expecting on your
site and that will give you an idea on how much of a site and
support that you need.

She has designed a number of sites for my colleagues and they are listed on

I imagine that you can find a wide range of prices for web
design. We used ESP for our design after having a not so great
product from another (overseas) company. We found the people
at ESP to be incredibly helpful and thorough, as well as local.
The references I checked were all of small businesses, as well
as a few non-profits, so I imagine they were in-line with what
was out there. I went with them because of the kind of service
they offered - direct personal contact, thoughtfulness, as well
as other computer stuff - web hosting, email, networking, etc.
They do it all.
Give them a call:
ESP Interactive Solutions

I am looking for someone to help me to design a website for a
new feminist organization. I will supply all content and have
some design and navigation specifications and hope to find
someone to get the initial site up and running, and follow up
consultations as the site grows. I would also like the person
to train me to continue to update and expand the site myself. I
prefer to use a widely used commercial program like
Dreamweaver. Ideally this would be a person with some
experience creating websites for themselves or an organization
who is looking for a small project to do from home. I would be
ready to begin in the next few weeks. Thanks!
For my web site, I used Pat Smith at Yellow Belly Web Design.
Working with her was a great experience. She really listened to
the look I wanted and integrated it into her design. She's done
a lot of web sites, including her own, so you'd have a lot of
examples of her work to look at~ Pat Smith, 848-7256 (in
Berkeley), E-mail is pat AT yellowbellywebdesign.com.
