Beautiful WordPress Websites
That You Can Manage Easily

We had been wanting to update our website for about a year, but had been struggling to find a web designer who was efficient, responsive, and creative. And then we found Laura Bowly. She has truly been the answer to our prayers! From our very first consultation we knew that Laura was going to surpass our expectations, and she provided us with a site that was better than we could have imagined. She was immediately able to grasp our vision and created a site that was beautiful, user-friendly, and responsive..in no time at all! We could not have asked for a better web designer, and we have already recommended her to many of our colleagues. We look forward to working with her on more sites and projects in the future.

Web Fonts vs Web “Safe” Fonts

Search Engines rely on ‘reading’ the text content of your site in order to rank the relevance of your pages against searched for phrases. Your Header tags are a particularly important piece of that and the styling of those tags also play a large role in the look of your site.

custom-fontsThere has always existed a small group of fonts that are considered “safe” for web use, meaning, all visitors will see those fonts exactly the same. Because the display of fonts on the web largely depends on the viewer’s font collection, it has been the best practice to use fonts which are already installed on a large percentage of viewer’s computers, limiting the “safe” choices considerably.

In the past, if you wanted unique styling of your Headers or other text within your site, you created images that replaced words for bolder impact. Of course the problem with this is that Search Engines do not ‘read’ images as text, so you have the look, but not the function. Also, changing the text requires creating a new image.

Enter Web Fonts.

Web Fonts are generally a subscription-based (or open-source) library of hosted, high-quality fonts that can be used in any website. Instead of relying on the fonts installed on the viewer’s computers, these fonts are hosted on independent servers, so they literally load when someone visits the site.

Custom Web Fonts allow us to design a truly unique website that better ties into your business identity.

Our company website was seven years old and ready for a big makeover. Fortunately for us we found Laura Bowly and quickly assigned her the task. She tackled the project with zest from minute one to launch. We couldn't be happier and the results speak for themselves. See cedarcreekrealty.com to review her outstanding work. Our site required constant revisions, creative solutions and quick response. Laura’s patience with the entire process kept us sane and she performed brilliantly. Our launch was a seamless event. Laura is a consummate professional and will get you where you want to go and beyond. And it’s great to know that Laura is available for our business needs into the future. Thank you Laura for service above and beyond our high expectations.
