4Real Arts: Creative web design for artists and creative markets

About 4 Real Arts

4RealArts offers web design services specifically targeted to artists, healing artists, and small businesses in need of image-rich pages. I create websites and graphics that reflect you, your art, products or services, and can give you the personalized attention needed to create your presence on the web. Creating a web site is a collaborative process that involves listening to the client's needs while utilizing the designer's intuitive choices. The vision of 4RealArts is to create designs which are elegant through their simplicity and straight-forward navigation.

I'm a one-woman business, working in Oakland, California. I serve both local clients and many who I've only met on the web. As a visual artist, my need for establishing my own web presence is what introduced me to this business. I quickly found a niche creating sites for other artists and creative businesses, and my business has grown primarily through referrals.

If you are new to the idea of how a website is created, see my Get Started page to get an overview of how this process works. Also, be sure to view sample sites within my Portfolio for ideas about elements you would like to include on your site. All sites include a customized header logo, rollover links, and resizing of your images for thumbnails and pop-ups or scroll galleries. Every site is custom designed with YOU, the client, in mind. Whether you need a new website, a fresh redesign of your existing site, or just occasional updates, I can help. And I'll speak to you in plain English, not a lot of tech-talk that will confuse you.

Prices vary according to client needs. Basic packages with many designers usually run at least $1000 and have minimal graphics. 4RealArts offers aesthetically designed websites, rich in graphics, at a cost that is considerably lower than the average web designer. If you would like a quote, please fill out my questionaire to help me underestand your needs.... or simply Contact me for a free consultation. I''ll collaborate with you in creating a site that matches your aesthetic, and will even help you update your website when it's done! ... 4RealArts, designed by a real artist, for real people.
