About Poiema Design | Poiema Design

Website Designer & Developer

Besides doing web design work, I bring to my clients a background of working with small business owners for almost 20 years as a financial consultant in the 80’s and 90’s as well as a background as a computer programmer.

About Me

Want to know a bit more about me?

 

I have always had a passion for and an interest in technology. When I was 14, I got a ham radio license (WN5IQE) and I built various electronic kits as a teen.

Fast forward to the early ’90s, and the World Wide Web came into being, along with browsers and websites. I started playing with Netscape Composer, a basic web page design tool, right after it came out. 

Then I tried a beta version of NetObjects Fusion in the mid-’90s and I was hooked! In the late ’90s, I did my first business website for a friend, you can see an archived version of it here. I realized I really enjoyed web design and began the transition from financial planning to my own web design business in 1996.

Since that time, I have used a wide variety of web design tools, including Net Objects Fusion, then Dreamweaver, Rapid Weaver, Adobe CC, and now I build exclusively using the WordPress platform, due to its flexibility and extensibility.

In my spare time, I enjoy walking, reading, taking road trips with my wife, and, surprise, the latest technology, especially in electronics.

I also love apologetics, the study of theology, and living out my Christian faith.

My Vision

A website should be so much more than simply a place of information.

A well-designed website should be one that invites the visitor to explore the site.

It should inspire confidence in the product or service being offered.

Ideally, it will be aesthetically pleasing, without sacrificing functionality.

And last, but hardly least, it should rank well with the search engines.

This is always the goal I have for each site I work on.

 

I believe design is a process

I prototype and iterate

I design and build

Define

Part of the design process is getting a clear definition of goals so that we can measure success.

Design

Once we have clearly defined the goals, we can begin the design process to ensure coherence and focus on those goals.

Refine

As we work together, we may see we need to refine and tweak goals and design before launch.

Launch

Finally, we will launch your site and make any tweaks that need to be made to enhance speed and SEO.
