Be Like Water

Effective, custom Web design and development for non-profits.

Services

Be like water, making its way through cracks. Do not be assertive, but adjust to the object, and you shall find a way around or through it.

Bruce Lee

Every client is different. I offer several service packages to accommodate any project. Need an on-going maintenance agreement after the site is built? No problem. Don't have hosting set up yet? I can do that too.

Have a look at these options and let me know how I can help.

Design

Some of my clients hire me for design only: To come up with the "look-and-feel" of a site. I never use predesigned templates - only hand-coded, original designs custom-made for your nonprofit. If you already have an in-house team of developers but need some design ideas, this option is for you.

Development

On most of my projects, I also handle development, which is to say I turn a design into a functional, interactive website. I'll set you up with a content management system that makes updating your website as simple as composing an email.

ExpressionEngine

Be better than WordPress. ExpressionEngine is a secure and flexible content management system that's perfect for many nonprofit websites. I've been developing websites with ExpressionEngine since 2006, and am a member of the ExpressionEngine Professionals Network. Get in touch and let's see if it's the right CMS for you.

Project management

With Be like water, you and I will work together throughout the life of the project. But you probably have other responsibilities at your organization as well. Not to worry - I am quite comfortable taking the lead. 

For projects where other services are required such as branding development, print design, or copywriting, I have a team of trusted colleagues whom I can sub-contract as needed.

Consulting

Not sure where to begin? Why not hire me for a day or two to help assess your situation? I offer consulting services at a rate of $500 plus tax per day. I can perform an analysis of your current website and find out where it's falling short, or if you work within the Greater Toronto Area, I'll come into your office and meet with your team.

Site maintenance

A website is not a building, but a garden. It requires ongoing maintenance to help it grow. Some clients don't have the resources to devote to maintaining their website, so I offer retainer services to help you out with that.

Let's have a discussion about how many hours of work per month you think you'll need to make your website thrive.
