"I was looking at [a competitor's] website and it's nice, but yours is FAR superior!  You have excellent ideas and an excellent "web guy!"  Your website is extremely professional and it looks like the company you work with is 10 times bigger than the company she works with!”
-- Unsolicited feedback received by one of my clients

My web design business is based almost entirely upon referrals.  Clients of mine continue to be pleased and enthusiastic about their web sites.  And I remain committed to delivering that same level of personalized service to everyone I work with.  Perhaps the best way for you to evaluate a potential web designer is to look at his or her work and to hear what the owners of those web sites have to say about the experiences they have had with their web site designer.  Feel free to contact the owners of any of the web sites that I have designed.

Cards by Mania

www.cardsbymania.com

This site uses a PayPal shopping cart to market a collection of very snarky Holiday Greetings Cards.    If you’re looking for something out of the ordinary, you might want to check this out.  I never had much fondness for websites with animated falling leaves or snowflakes and I was skeptical when this client asked me to do it... but you know what?  Sometimes the client really is right... and I think they work great on this site.

“If you're like me and find the whole website design thing daunting, then Laurence is your guy.  He guided me through the set up and retail process perfectly and was very patient with my rookie questions.  He put what was in my head right onto the page.  You can't ask any more than that."

  Fans-See This!

site taken offline by the owner

Original daily comics strips are featured on this site, chronicling the antics of consummate sports fans “Barney and Franklin”.  Custom scripting features automate various aspects of this site’s maintenance and product marketing.

"A friend of mine who had used Laurence to build her website recommended him to me. Immediately, I felt comfortable working with him. I expressed what I was trying to accomplish, and he took in that information, gave me his thoughts and suggestions and never gave me the feeling that I wasn't part of the process. Laurence was very accessible and patient, which was very important for a perfectionist like myself. He constantly gave me tips on how to make my website more efficient and user friendly, and in the end I couldn't be happier. I would recommend Laurence's services in a heartbeat and hope to use him again in the future. Thank you Laurence! You have helped make my creative dream become a reality!”
