Sungraffix is Robert Heston and I am a freelance Web Developer. I come from a background in graphic design and desktop publishing for print media. Recently, I earned a degree in Web Technologies from Forsyth Technical Community College in Winston Salem, NC. I now offer the combination of graphic design, desktop publishing, and website design.

You will find that I offer competitive pricing. While I can still be considered new to the website design trade I will discount that competitive price. Each job is different, so we will need to discuss the terms of our agreement. I can work with almost any budget. Thanks to the nature of Wordpress, I can enable you to access, maintain, and even make changes to your website when it is ready or I can return for any future needs. It will otherwise be easy for anyone that is experienced to work with it in the future.

I can build a website custom designed to meet your unique needs. To save time and money as well as give you more control, I use the Wordpress framework. 30% of the websites out there today are based on Wordpress. Once everything is in place, this framework provides the luxury of user-friendly controls to maintain, change, and update the website. Some clients prefer to take over the incremental maintenance tasks themselves.

The unique framework used by a Wordpress website is called a theme. Themes are relatively inexpensive combinations of features that work together for the basic, functional design. By utilizing the built-in features your content can be used to build the customized pages of your website. It is good practice to keep your design consistent throughout, but you can venture out to some degree and add or change features of your pages. You will not be bound to just the features you saw in the theme’s demo.

Various features within the website can come in the form of plugins. Your eCommerce storefront, accounts registration, contact form, or special photo gallery or slider could be a plugin. Plugins allow for easy adjustments, additions, and changes to those features.

Choosing a theme: Below I have added links to some theme companies. Each company will have a collection of themes they have created. Each theme will have a live demonstration that you can go to. These companies are merely suggestions. I can use themes from any source. You can shop for a theme yourself, we can choose one together, or you can describe what you want and have me choose one.

I can also design your company logo, brochures, forms, letterhead, cards and advertisements. I typically use Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, and InDesign for graphics and publishing. If you check out my resume, you will see that I have many years of experience in that type of work.

This is where I will be placing links to websites as I create them.
Here are links to theme collections where you can find the layout that works best for you. Take your time and check out the demos. I will work with Wordpress themes from these or any source you like.
Below are links to my work with school projects. Links at the top are from my earliest classes. The work becomes more recent as you go down. You can view more of my schoolwork from the School menu of my personal website.
