Making Custom WordPress Website Design
More Affordable for Small Businesses

Laura has an abundant balance of integrity, professionalism and creativity that make her the perfect fit for website design. She immediately understood my desires for a professional, informative and yet user-friendly website for my law firm and made the process so easy, efficient and affordable. And now I have the website that I always wanted, designed so that I can make changes and additions hassle-free. What an important first impression your website is – it reflects who you are and what you do. Laura acutely understands the importance of capturing your identity in your website. And I could not be more pleased the result.

What is Responsive Design?

More and more clients are asking me about Responsive Design, so I wanted to take a moment to explain what it is and why it may be something you want to consider for your own website.

Responsive websites respond to their environment. The text and images rearrange, resize and stack depending on what size browser you are viewing the website on — a smartphone, a pad, a standard computer monitor — each of these present the content of the website in a different way.

This site I recently launched is a good example of Responsive Design.
The Fantasy Sound site that I recently designed is a good example of Responsive Design. You can check it out at fantasysound.com

A responsive website is built with alternate CSS styling so that it detects the screen size your visitors are using and displays the content in a layout that is easiest for them to read.

The benefit of Responsive Design is that it provides an optimal viewing experience for your visitors — easy reading and navigation with a minimum of resizing & panning.

If your site does not have responsive design, your website will still function correctly when viewed on a phone or pad device, but it appears as a tiny, scaled down version of your site. Visitors will have to use pinching and swiping to enlarge the content and navigate through.

“Working with Laura Bowly Design since our business start-up in 2008 has been a great experience. Her expertise and professionalism has been a boon to our small business from the start. I appreciate Laura's fast response time, quick turnaround and professional approach. I am an Internet novice and when I have questions (and I always have a million) I can rely on her to provide clear and easy to understand answers. She has broad experience in both the business and online realms, so when I am weighing various options, she is able to offer excellent suggestions that invariably help guide my choices. I interviewed four firms before hiring Laura, and I can honestly say that selecting her to support the magazine’s online efforts was one of the best decisions I’ve made.
