Designing websites since 1995
Hi, I’m CArRiE McDougall
I’ve been designing web sites since 1995, and I LOVE what I do… the whole process, the brainstorming during the initial planning, interpreting my clients’ vision and creatively taking it from concept to digital form, and even the technical aspects of code manipulation. It’s all fun!
Designing a web site has come a long way since coding HTML from scratch (thank goodness)! I now almost exclusively use WordPress. I love WordPress for many reasons, the main one is I can be sure each site is responsive (adapts to phones, tablets, etc), which is so important. Plus, WordPress is so user-friendly, I can easily teach my clients how to keep their web sites updated themselves. Of course, I’m always happy to update sites for those that would rather focus on their business instead of their web site.
Let’s chat! I offer a complimentary consultation and would love to discuss how I can help you with your online presence.

Carrie consistently exceeds our expectations when creating websites for us. She’s such a trusted member of our team that we recommend her services in our marketing and business program. Everyone I know who uses her mentions her professionalism, her kind heart, and her gentle accountability approach that helps those that call themselves “tech-phobic” stay on track without hitting overwhelm. It’s rare combination her talents and gifts that have us as loyal customers for over 10 years!

Carrie has been taking care of my ad web page for ten plus years. She has never missed posting the weekly ad. I recommend her highly.

Carrie is awesome. I have been working with her for over two decades. She has a great imagination & she gets it done!
Carrie designed my first website in 2003. She redesigned the website in 2018. Her creativity and knowledge made it a seamless process. It has always been a delight working with her! I give her 5 stars.
Carrie is wonderful to work with! She understood right away the intent of my website and came up with a great design for it. She is a good listener and communicator. I look forward to a long and trusted working relationship with her.

I am so pleased with the excellent work Carrie did to create my website. Her ideas are wonderful and done in such a way as to allow all of her clients complete autonomy in the final process of decision making to make each site unique.Completion of each site is alway done in a timely manner and something to look forward to. I am very pleased to have her working with me and would highly recommend her services.
Even if this isn’t the your first experience embarking on a web design project, each designer does things a little differently, so I thought I would lay-out the process so you know what to expect.
We start with a one-on-one FREE consultation (usually less than an hour). This can be done in-person, by phone or using Zoom. Together we assess your goals and desires for your project, such as whether your site will be purely informational or will it include on-line sales and/or scheduling of services. With this information I will be able to determine the size and technical scope of your project.
It would be helpful to be able to see your logo and any printed marketing material you might already have during our consultation. With this information I’ll be able to determine any creative needs and a clear picture of your vision.
Within a day or two I will put together a “Project Outline & Quote” for you to review. This will provide every detail of your project, based on our consultation. This will insure you will have a clear understanding of exactly what will be included. Once you have approved of the outline and the price quoted, all you need to do is sign off, and we will get started! (a deposit of 1/2 down will be required at this time)
Now the FUN part begins…
I will design an overall ‘look & feel’ for your project, a design built for your specific needs and branding. There will not be any ‘content’ yet at this stage, that will come a little later. You will want to take as much time as you need to review, test it on multiple devices, and maybe even share it with others, asking for feedback.
When you’re ready- we will evaluate and decide if it’s perfect, needs a few changes, or if it requires a trip back to the drawing board. We will repeat this step until you are thrilled with it! (final payment required once you are thrilled)
