Need a Website?

Do you need a website for your Team or Application? Well I can help. I am a new web designer for hire and I figured where better to find a job than a developer who needs a website done! For a small fee, I can design a website around your application, or for your own team.

All you do is tell me your Application and I do what I do! The price for this is Very Small, the most you will have to pay for an entire website is $50. But actual price will be discussed after we talk about what you want done. To see what I have done, look at my (small) portfolio at http://justice.tekkdrop.com . On there is a contact email so we can get in touch and I can help you out!

I looked at your portfolio, but don't see an actual design or a link to a site I can look at that you've done. If your interested in offering this kind of service, can you please post something to look at?

If you look under, there is a subtitle that says the website.

Ya, but the site is not linked, atleast not in iPhone safari. I'll check it in FF3.5 when I get home, but if it's not linked, consider a way to link it.

True, I will see what I can do with that. I can try to link it.

David, few quick pointers, web designer to web designer.

For the site link, perhaps have a list of the sites you've done so far, that way the potential clients can see an interactive version of the site. If the site isn't online yet, perhaps host a mirror of it on your site, and link to that.

Not a big thing, but perhaps group the different sections of the portfolio page. From an aesthetic point of view, it looks much better than a list of things you've done.

And now a very small thing. Add something along the lines of:

to the bottom of your page. It's standard protocol to add this to sites you make.

Zandog, Had a look at the code of the site, it uses a Javascript Lightbox function, perhaps Safari on the iDevice doesn't support that.

And due to a useless net connection, it seems I managed to post twice.

Lightbox, to my surprise, is iPhone friendly. Even more surprising; it is IE friendly. And, according to the caption, you can visit his sample page here: http://boom.tekkdrop.com/

The "red flags" are the missing images and a (seemingly, at least) randomly placed mobile optimized page that (seemingly, at least) does not pair up with a similar big brother. The look is not uniform throughout the site and navigation is just too clumsy.

David, keep trying.

If the boom site is any indication I'm not quite sure if you're ready to offer your skills to the masses.

It looks a little horrid in low resolutions.
And it really requires a landscape view to look right.

Lightbox is iPhone friendly? Huh, never knew that. Thanks for the link, missed that one.
