Web Design - Sample PortfolioWith today's technology, you can have a web site with features that flash, swoop, tap dance and blare music -- but that doesn't necessarily mean that all of it is a good idea. Careful thought and planning, more than bells and whistles, will give you a web site that gives your site viewers efficient access to the information they seek, ensuring that they stay longer and hear what you have to say. Hyla Skudder Design specializes in clean, efficient but visually rich web designs, for businesses and individuals.

Susan Tikson DDS

Worthington, OH

This was a web site redesign project. Dr. Tikson wanted a new site design that better reflected the warm and friendly atmosphere of her practice. She wanted to show her actual staff and patients on the site rather than stock photos where possible, so I supervised a professional on-site photo shoot. Dr. Tikson also wanted to reflect the colors and artwork from her office in the site design, so these details were worked into every page to add visual richness.
