Forgotten Lore Design is my portfolio and a gateway into what I am capable of creating for you and your business. I have ten years of experience working with web sites of varied content and design. My goal is always to present a site that is aesthetically pleasing, easy to navigate, and compatible with multiple internet browsers.
Whether you are looking for something simple or ornate, my experience can provide you with the solution you're looking for. I am self taught, and that has enabled me to learn through experimentation and work outside of the box. While my artistic background will ensure you have a design that does your company justice, I also have a strong research background which allows me to make sure information remains the primary focus.
Too often designers stick with cookie cutter design, where everything they create seems to be made from a single template, or use messy software generated code that looks different between IE, Mozilla Firefox, or any other browser your client may be using! In those cases sites can become difficult to navigate, use more space and bandwidth resources than needed, and give your visitors a very unprofessional introduction to your products or services. When hiring someone you need to be sure it is someone who can highlight your business favorably rather than detracting from it.
I can provide you with a custom package to fit your needs -- from site design to hosting and maintenance. Not quite sure what you are looking for? Feel free to drop me an email to discuss ideas!
