Responsive WordPress sites. Thousands of styles/themes and plug ins/widgets to choose from to make your site zing and stand out in the competitive world of internet. The world is your oyster! You will have the option to manage the site via the dashboard yourself or I can manage it for you for an hourly fee or an agreed upon monthly retainer. I can also maintain your existing WordPress, Drupal or Joomla site.
Mobile Friendly Web sites. Are you one of the approx. 40% of top businesses whose web site is still not mobile friendly? Google changed their search algorithm in April 2015 to favor sites that are “mobile-friendly.” This could mean the end of top-ranking for your site when mobile users search for your product. I can build you a new mobile-friendly site.
Customized sites built from scratch to your preference. You will have the option to maintain the site in house yourself if you have someone who knows HTML and CSS or I can manage it for you on the same basis as above. I can also help train clients in the use of Dreamweaver, so if you are local to the Washington D.C. area, that is a possibility.
I also provide Search Engine Optimization (SEO) as part of the web process, which is key to making your site more visible in search engines.
This is how you can actually put that fantastic web site of yours to work! A web site alone may not be enough to attract and engage a customer base. You need to let people know you are out there. Let me take the headache out of setting up your social media accounts and e-newsletter campaigns. I’ll get to know you and your business and reach out to the right audience. Curious visitors will start to arrive at your site. Once there, the content on the site is paramount to “capturing” your clients. Give them something to do when they get there, e.g. sign up for your newsletter, offer free trials, view strategically placed video presentations. This is where we work together to make sure your web site and social media work in concert.
You may want to consider a blog, which takes commitment on the part of the client, but is a great way to build up a loyal following. Good quality blog posts get noticed and quickly shared on social media outlets and bring more people to your site. Want to let your client base know about a special offer, event, sale, etc.? I design e-newsletters and can set up a series of campaigns to send to your client lists, ensuring they “hear all about it!”

first web site for “the best small museum in America,” the world-
renowned Kimbell Art Museum, in Fort Worth, Texas. Since then I have
built sites for clients ranging from the art world to education,
transportation, and biotech. MPP also offers WordPress sites, which are
very popular due to the huge choice of templates and the autonomy they
provide to the client when it comes to updates.
PRINT. Along the way, I was asked to become the print designer for a
particular client who really appreciated my eye for design. I jumped
headfirst into a large project designing an exhibition at the Alcon Eye
Museum in Fort Worth, Texas, involving the design and production of (19)
8ft. x 4 ft. panels. I went on to design many more large panels for the
same museum and for Trinity Historic school and U.T. Austin Aerospace
Dept. MPP also designs smaller items such as ads, brochures, logos, etc.
SOCIAL MEDIA. MPP also offers a full-service campaign plan to promote
your event. We will set up and post to your social media accounts,
design e-newsletters and set up multiple campaigns to reach your target
audience, set up a Google Analytics account, and provide frequent
reports to measure your success. Even if you just want your social media
set up, we can do it! No job is too small. We look forward to discussing
your project and hope to do business with you soon!

Portfolio - When it comes to a web project, I can build either a traditionally built site with software such as Dreamweaver or a Wordpress site with access to your own dashboard. If you decide not to maintain your site yourself, MPP can make all your updates on a per hour basis or some other basis agreed upon by both parties. Concerning social media, we can set up an entire campaign for your organization or company on any budget. Recently I ran a successful campaign for a non-profit with a small budget, doing everything online. We used e-newsletters and social media and a new Wordpress site to connect with the target audience. Even if you just want some social media accounts set up, we can do that. No job is too small. Whether you need a logo, a brochure, an 8ft tall exhibition panel, or anything in between, I can design it. Please enjoy my portfolio and please contact me to discuss your project.

You've probably heard something in the news about Google making a big change this month to the way their search engine works. As of today (April 21, 2015), Google is launching a new algorithm that favors "mobile-friendly" web sites over non-mobile-friendly sites. What does that mean and what does it mean for your business? Among other things, a mobile-friendly site should load quickly, adapt well (responsively) to any size and shape of handheld device screen, and the nav bar will adapt/shrink often to a single button that unfolds upon clicking. A non-mobile-friendly site looks the same on a
I’ve recently been working on “retrofitting” an old site I built some years ago to be 508 compliant. It has been an interesting learning process, going from knowing very little about it, to wanting to learn more. Even though there is a lot of information out there on the internet about 508 compliance, I thought I’d write a basic synopsis for those of you who are not yet ready to dive into the white papers but who were just kind of curious about the subject. Definition In 1998, the US Congress amended the 1973 Rehabilitation Act to require Federal
We’ve all heard the term bandied about and we nod sagely as if we are in the know. But what does it actually mean and why do the web gurus hammer on about it as being an essential part of today’s web site design? The term Responsive Web Design (RWD) was coined several years ago by Ethan Marcotte and is mentioned in his 2010 article, "Responsive Web Design” (link). To most of us, responsive design means building sites that provide an optimal viewing experience across a wide range of devices, from desktop computer monitors to mobile phones. In other
