Kathleen needed a life coaching web site that was simple, luminous, and quick. There was just one more requirement: it had to be absolutely accessible. Kathleen wanted her site to be welcoming to everyone, with a welcoming visual presentation, content that would present well with the font increased dramatically, and the site must also present well to people using screen readers.
In graduate school my research focused on accessibility issues, and in my early web design career I often advocated for accessibility as a simple way to ensure solid search engine rankings. Screen readers and search engine indexing bots are very similar software, after all. Nearly two decades later I was gratified to confirm that this is still true, and in fact, accessibility is easier than ever online in part because of efforts to support good SEO rank. With reasonable care in design and plug-in selection, a reputable theme like the Genesis themes I favor does the heavy lifting.
I was very impressed with the quality of work and timeliness that Shasta demonstrated in assisting me with the designing and launching of my new Website. Her commitment and dedication shine through very clearly. She strives to design Websites that are at once attractive, accessible and user-friendly. Her hourly fee is also very fair, and she takes only as much time as is required to complete the task at hand. I would highly recommend Shasta’s Web design services to anyone who would like to enhance an existing Website or launch a completely new one. – Kathleen Prime
