Welcome to my New Website


Welcome to the new and improved ZacharyCoyne.com!

I’ve recently been re-building my website to give it a new look and improved functionality. My hope is that the new site will be even easier to navigate and will have more to offer prospective and current clients and anyone else who happens to stop by.

My new portfolio page has a pretty sleek image gallery to display some of my most recent works. My services page gives a quick list of some of the web and graphic design stuff I do. Overall, I tried to keep the site clean and well-structured so that you can always find a way to contact me and/or get to the information you need.

Web design blog!

The feature I’m most excited about on the new site is my blog. I’m going to be writing quite a few articles about web design and development in general. My goal here is to help inform prospective clients (and others) about the ins and outs of website design.

Finding the right web developer to create or update your website can be intimidating, especially if you don’t have a lot of web knowledge. On the one hand, it’s not your job to know a lot about how websites work (heck, that’s why you’re paying a web designer in the first place, so they can build your site and you can worry about running your business). On the other hand, not all web designers are created equal, and if you don’t know what you really need, can’t assess the quality of the product you’re getting or the qualifications of a designer, you’re taking a real gamble. I can’t tell you how many clients I’ve had who come to me with a broken website and a story about a past designer whose “grandma died” or just disappeared without warning.

With this in mind, I think it’s worth a business-owner’s time to learn the basics. I’m not necessarily talking about picking up an HTML book and studying code, but more so taking a moment to learn about what makes a good website (and what makes a bad one) and what you really need in a site (and what you can do without). I’d like to share my business perspective and explain what a good website can do for a company (and how you can measure its effectiveness), and explain the difference between a website that looks good and is good (performs well).
