My Tool Box

Preferred TOOLS

Every web designer has their own “tools of the trade”  when developing client sites or recommending products and services for their clients. The service providers listed below have earned their place for superior quality, reliability and outstanding customer service.

*Please note that some of these links are affiliate links which means if you purchase from one of the product links, I will receive a commission. I only recommend product and services that I personally use and trust. 

DreamHost*: Superior website hosting prices with excellent client support. Getting started is easy, and if you are hosted elsewhere, moving your domain and website is professionally handled by their in house migration team.

Elementor Pro*: My choice for visual builder. Lightweight, responsive, easy to use drag and drop. No need for a gajillion plugins for forms, fonts, etc. EPro allows me to customize websites to specifications with minimal coding.

Adobe Stock*: A picture can say a thousand words and so does a copyright lawsuit for unauthorized use of a image you pulled off the internet. Rest assured that any digital assets purchased through Abobe are licensed for commercial use (limits apply). 

My EPW Method: This is where I learned to build websites.  “Grim” teaches a method of development that is easy to follow for those of you who want more “hands on” experience with your website.
