Website Design - images, colors, and fonts
If you have been in business a while you also may already have images for your website. If not or if you need more let's get started.
While in Boston attending a WordCamp (place for us WordPress designers to mingle) it was said that an image is processed 60,000 times faster than words which means your images matter! And, a lot.
Let's get started! Below are a few places to find images. Again, no worries as I can help along the way.
Best = Your own images - if it is possible it would be best to utilize your own images. Professional images of yourself, your office, employees in action, are the best way to go.
Free Images - Realistically, it can be hard to have all your own images. No worries as there are several awesome options to grab some free images.

Tip: Gravitate toward a feeling for your images. For instance, you might want your images to evoke worldly, laughter, or kindness.

If you have been in business a while you also may already have your font scheme. If not let's get one created.

Keep in mind that this does not mean you can never use another font but that this simply means these are the fonts that should be prominent throughout your marketing.

Tip: Pick a font that is easy to read. If you like the handwritten or script look, find one that you like, looks good with your names/words, and then we will use it sparingly (not for the whole website).
