A bit about working with me:
“So what happens in a website project?” you ask.
While each project is unique, we’ll typically go through the following 4 stages together:
To begin, I’ll learn all I can about your business, goals, brand, competitors, and customers. Then we’ll work together to build and hone a revenue-focused plan that will steer the website build. We’ll also strategize future marketing efforts that make sense for your business.
Now that we’ve got a solid plan and content strategy, I’ll work with your marketing copy, images, video, etc. to make a few wireframes and mockups that match the plan’s goals. You’ll get to choose a direction the website will move in, and we can make revisions as needed.
Here’s where I roll up my figurative sleeves and pound on a keyboard like a madman. I’ll be coding the website, merging in your branding, content, and marketing copy; and testing the site. We may even jump back and forth from the Draft and Develop stages to polish the site.
Kind of like in a spaceship launch, I’ll make final checks and optimizations here for usability and performance. Then it’s launch time! Woohoo! But even after the website is released, I’ll be around to make sure the website is running smoothly with my 30-day support guarantee.
In short: I’m proud of what I do; and I want to ensure you enjoy your journey with me.

My name’s Stephen Thompson, and here’s a bit about me. Coming from a military family, I’ve lived on both sides of the U.S. (mostly the west coast) often hopping from one island to another. Now I’m blessed to be back in my home island—Oahu, HI.
I got into web design after discovering that writing HTML was like playing with Lego bricks (of which I’m an avid fan). What’s also cool about the web industry is that I can work with folks almost anywhere.
If there’s one thing you must know about me, it’s that I’m always on the lookout to find better ways to do things (shoutout to Lifehacker). Whether that’s optimizing a website for faster load times, improving usability, or learning new customer insights—it’s pretty fun.
