12 reasons to work with me
- Benefit 1
Build personalized websites
Tired of predefined themes that everybody uses?
A tailored website (on top of powerful blogging and image management platforms) can increase your online visibility, look more professional, and better promote and sell your work.
Consider FGW to be your personal tailor.
- Benefit 2
Explore creative solutions
Sure, you can hire low-level designers and developers, but they usually just follow instructions and don't really try to understand and solve your real problems.
I try to know your audience, your business goals, your needs and dig in to find more strategic design solutions.
- Benefit 3
Expand your knowledge
If you're just starting out, your comfort zone is slim.
I can also provide some insight into topics like business planning, differentiation, defining your USP, market research, digital photo workflow, photo editing etc., or point you in the right direction to learn more.
- Benefit 4
Focus on core features
I pay attention to "site fashion", but color themes, social media buttons, and plugins come and go.
Clarity, hierarchy, speed and ease-of-use will also be required in 10 years.
Great design is the art of reduction.
- Benefit 5
Website visitors, images/products sold, image searches (and other business metrics) -
all tracked and optimized for.
- Benefit 6
I could be doing a site redesign now, but in a few years we can also collaborate on another project/product,
I'll be here when you need help.
- Benefit 7
I know clear communication is important to get the message across,
I try to really listen.

You probably want more time to do what you love, instead of learning web design.
Working on your website will get the deserved attention (I avoid over-scheduling), so things progress quickly, with frequent status updates.

Save even more time
I try to make your life simpler after launching your site,
so you can quickly update it when fresh content is available
