Building professional websites that elevate your business.
Successful web design convinces people to act and delivers tangible results.
Your website is the primary place where people interact with your company. It is also your most important marketing tool. An successful website will generate leads and work around the clock to help grow your business. Your site should look professional, function smoothly, and be easy to use on all devices: phones, tablets and desktop.
My name is John Locke, and I’m a web designer, developer, and consultant based in Sacramento, California. I will work alongside you to help grow your business through your website, social media, and other web properties.
Your business has unique goals, opportunities, and challenges. I want your website to empower you overcome those obstacles and help you achieve your goals. My design process is not a one-size-fits-all type of approach. Instead, I will partner with you to understand the unique nuances of your business, and help you bridge the gap on your opportunities. I will be there to help you tell the story of why your business is freaking amazing, and teach you how to get the most of your web content.

Design is both functional and beautiful. If you are launching a brand new site or need a redesign for an existing website, your core messages should always shine through.

Your story is unique, and your website will help tell that story creatively, as your most effective marketing tool.
Websites must function as flawlessly as they look. Your website will be built using best practices and a modern web development workflow.

Before launch, your site will be tested on a variety of browsers, devices, and use cases.
The Design Process
In our initial meetings, I’ll discover more about your business and your goals—your hopes, dreams, and challenges for growing your business online. This stage is about establishing communication and finding the problems that need to be solved.
During the research phase, I find out more about your strengths and weaknesses against industry competitors. I get a clearer idea of how you can position your business better, focus your website, and reach more people.
With clearly defined goals and research information in hand, the creative process begins. The visual imagery, site content and functionality of your website is mapped out. Each element of the site is given careful thought and consideration.
In the web development stage, I use code and programming to turn design and infrastructure into a functioning website. Your website is tested on a wide variety of devices and browsers to make sure it works properly.
When testing is complete, your website is moved from a staging area to a public server. Your site is now online and ready for post launch marketing campaigns.
Shortly after your website launch, you will receive personalized training so you can easily maintain and publish content to your website. My goal is to make sure you are comfortable with your website tools and set you up for success.
Design is in the details, both large and small.
