I make simple, affordable, attractive websites that you can then maintain and update yourself. If you are an author, practitioner, or consultant, chances are you don’t need to pay a web development firm a lot of money for a complex or fancy website. Of course, another option is to make a website yourself—there are plenty of services designed to let you do that. But as I have discovered, creating a website that looks really good and works well is not as easy as we might wish it were. The question is, do you really want to spend your time learning how to do it yourself? I can help you make a beautiful, functional, professional-looking website for a reasonable price.
We can learn a lot about ourselves and what is at the heart of what we offer the world from the process of creating a website together, as I discovered creating my own and other websites.
I am not a web developer. I am a graphic designer with years of experience in print design, who has done the work of researching and learning what I consider to be the best low-cost way of making a simple yet flexible website—so you don’t have to. I design using WordPress, by far the most widely used website management system available. With my knowledge of WordPress and my training as a graphic designer, I can make a really nice, simply functional website.
My websites are not fancy, but they are not just pretty either. I pride myself on creating sites that can make even complex information clear and accessible, using clean visuals and a logical structure and organization. This website, as well as the others pictured above, demonstrate the type of website I am best at.
Logos & website graphics
Every website is only as good as the embedded images. If you already have a great logo and professional, high-resolution photographs and graphics, my job will be easy. If not, I can help with those, too, and for less than you might think. Read more about Logos and Graphics.
Manifest Identity can help you with any print marketing materials you might want. An attractive business card with your logo—one that aligns visually with your website—is a vitally important tool. You may or may not want a flyer, rack card, postcard, or brochure. I can help you decide which forms of print media, if any, might be useful to you and worth the investment. I can design any print media you decide on to visually reference your website and prepare the files for printing.
How Manifest Identity’s Identity Design Works
Contact Lindy to set up a free, no-obligation phone consult, so we can both get more information and to decide what you need and if our working together can help you achieve your goals.
If we decide to proceed with a website, I will ask you to send a sample of your materials (writing and images) for me to assess whether or not you are ready to begin the design process. If our conversation and the materials indicate you are ready to go, I will provide an estimate.
If you are not yet ready to begin, I can tell you what you need to pull together in order for us to start. If you need help with that or with discerning the structure and intent of your website, we can set up a series of phone or Zoom consulting sessions at $65/hr on an agreed-upon schedule.
