Welcome to Designs By Downtown, your home of affordable website design. Here at Designs By Downtown I feel that everyone should be able to have an affordable web site designer.
Affordability is usually the main reason small business , individuals and non-profit organizations do not have a website. I can create high quality, great looking web sites at very affordable rates.
Whether you require a single page on the internet , a complete fully-functional web site or just want your old Web site redesigned, I can create it for you. I can even make it an easy to navigate an online shopping site with secure e-commerce payments via Pay Pal.
Let me take care of your web site needs by walking you through the process of design, layout, getting a domain name , finding affordable web hosting and search engine optimization.
Don’t let your old web site send the wrong impression. I specialize in both turning old web sites around and starting from the ground up. Whatever your need is, I can customize a plan that will fit your budget.
I am here to help you reach a broader audience thru the World Wide Web and get your message out for everyone to see and hear.
I am Michael Brown of Designs By Downtown. I got my name as a car salesman back in 1994. After 8 years of selling cars , I retired in 2002. I first gained interest in website design when my grandmother passed away and I wanted to honor her memory by creating a memorial website about her. As I furthered my career by doing websites for friends , family , my professional talents have expanded. I now have 14 years experience as a freelance website designer and I am certified in website design and advanced website design thru an accredited college.
I have experience using the following applications:
Paint Shop Pro 8
Animation Shop 8
Adobe Photoshop CS4 and CS5
Adobe Flash CS4 and CS5
Microsoft Office 2007 and 2010
Adobe Dreamweaver CS4 and CS5

You are probably asking yourself how can I offer you prices that are lower than most companies or other web designers. That is because I love doing websites and since I am retired, I can offer my clients original , creative and truly unique one of the kind web sites at lower rates. I have very little overhead outside of my computer, printer, telephone and programs. I work out of my home office and not for a big corporation in an expensive office building, so I can pass that savings along to my clients.
All of my web site design creations are one of a kind. I do not use generic templates , so no two web sites I create look alike.
I offer free quotes, so check out my services and see what I can do for you.
