“Imagine Seeing What You Think” ™

...with calm, grace & exceeded my expectations!

“Michael created for me amazing holiday business cards to send to my clients to keep me top of mind. I was admittedly hard to please, asking for numerous changes, but he did all of them with calm, grace & exceeded my expectations! I would not hesitate to hire him again for his incredible services.”

Dan Newmark, Presentation Specialist

Hire him in a minute!

“Michael’s work is not just brilliant and in impeccable taste and sense of compositor, it is visually engaging and really gets the message across. I really appreciate his work and him as a person and designer. Hire him in a minute!”

Neal Raisman, Chancellor Briarcliff College

He is charming, engaging & a true gentleman!

“As an art enthusiast… Michael’s work is just a perfect addition to my wonderful collection. As a person Michael is a pleasure to interact with. He is charming, engaging & a true gentleman!”

Linda Hamilton, 3 Time Golden Globe Nominated Actress

He is an artist enamored of the Goddess

“Although his use of grisaille in dramatically cropped compositions could signal a stylistic kinship with David Salle, Apice’s approach to womanly curves is romantic rather than pornographic; he is an artist enamored of the Goddess rather than the bimbo!”

Ed McCormack, Gallery & Studio Magazine

Michael's style exhibits extreme sensitivity

"Michael's style exhibits extreme sensitivity... high emotion between his subjects and viewers. While his painting technique may wow audiences, he keeps the viewers attention by evoking an experience.”

Alli Rufrano, International Photographer & Professor

Web design <strong><em>overview</em></strong>

From Wikipedia: Web Design

Web design encompasses many different skills and disciplines in the production and maintenance of websites.

Web design areas include web graphic design; interface design; authoring, including standardized code and proprietary software; user experience design; and search engine optimization. Often many individuals will work in teams covering different aspects of the design process, although some designers will cover them all.

Web design the term  is normally used to describe the design process relating to the front-end (client side) design of a website including writing mark up. Web design partially overlaps web engineering in the broader scope of web development.

Web design <strong><em>process</em></strong>

Here is myWeb Design Process for you check out!

Step 1. Gathering Information:

Purpose, Main Goals, and Target Audience

This stage, the stage of discovering and researching, determines how the subsequent steps will look like. The most important task at this point is to get the clear understanding of your future website purposes, the main goals you wish to get, and the target audience you want to attract to your site.
Such kind of a website development questionnaire helps to develop the best strategy for further project management. News portal differs from the entertainment websites, and online resources for teenagers looks different than sites for adults. Different types of websites provide visitors with different functionality which means that different technologies should be used according to the purposes.

A well described and detailed plan made on the basis of this pre-development data can protect you from spending extra resources on solving the unexpected issues such as design changing or adding the functionality that wasn’t initially planned.

Estimated time: from 1 to 2 weeks

Step 2. Planning:

Sitemap and Wireframe Creation

Step 3. Design:

Page Layouts, Review, and Approval Cycle

During the design phase, your website takes shape. All the visual content, such as images, photos, and videos is created at this step. Once again, all the info that was gathered through the first phase is crucial. The customer and target audience must be kept in mind while you work on a design.

Website layout is the result of designer’s work. It can be a graphic sketch or an actual graphic design. The primary function of the layout is to represent the information structure, visualize the content, and demonstrate the basic functional. Layouts contain colors, logos, images and can give a general understanding of the future product.

Customer can now review the layout and send you his feedback. If the client is not sure about some aspects of your design, you should change the layout and send it back to him. This cycle should be repeated until the customer is completely satisfied.

Estimated time: from 4 to 12 weeks

Step 4. Content:

Writing and Assembly

Content writing and compiling usually overlaps with other stages of website creation, and its role can’t be underestimated.  At this step it is necessary to put in writing the very essence you’d like to communicate to the audience of your website, and add calls-to-action.

Content writing involves also creation of catching headlines, text editing, writing new text, compiling the existing text, etc., which takes time and effort. As a rule, the client undertakes to provide website content ready to migrate to the site. It is better when all website content is provided before or during website coding.

Estimated time: from 5 to 15 weeks

Step 5. Coding:

Coding, Framework, SEO

Creating the website itself. Graphic elements that have been designed during the previous stages should be used to create an actual website. Usually, the home page is created first, and then all sub-pages are added, according to the website hierarchy that was previously created in the form of a sitemap. Frameworks and CMS should be implemented to make sure that server can handle the installation and set-up smoothly.

All static web page elements that were designed during the mock-up and layout creation should be created and tested. Then, special features and interactivity should be added. A deep understanding of every website development technology that you’re going to use is crucial at this phase.

When you use CMS for site creation, you can also install CMS plugins at this step if there’s a need. The other important step is SEO (Search Engine Optimization). SEO is the optimization of website elements ( e.g., title, description, keyword) that can help your site achieve higher rankings in the search engines. And, once again, valid code is pretty important for SEO.

Step 6. Going Live:

Testing, Review and Launch

Testing is probably the most routine part of a process. Every single link should be tested to make sure that there are no broken ones among them. You should check every form, every script, run a spell-checking software to find possible typos. Use code validators to check if your code follows the current web standards. Valid code is necessary, for example, if cross-browser compatibility is important for you.

After you check and re-check your website, it’s time to upload it to a server. An FTP (File Transfer Protocol) software is used for that purpose. After you deployed the files, you should run yet another, final test to be sure that all your files have been installed correctly.

Estimated time: from 2 to 4 weeks
