Buckeye V.A.

I recently had the pleasure of working with Stephanie Fish of Buckeye V.A. on her new website design for her Virtual Assistant business.  Her previous design was very dark with a black background and a bright white contrast.  It wasn’t portraying the look and feel that she wanted for her business.

I suggested that we try to soften things up with Stephanie’s new custom WordPress Theme and make it pretty while keeping it very professional-looking.  The gray pinstripes of the background is a symbol of a suit (professional) with pink accents (pretty), throwing a few swirls in just for fun.  Stephanie was very pleased with the result.  She wrote:

It’s taken many website designs and designers, but finally, I have a website that I’m thrilled about! It’s so nice to start the new year off with a great looking website (it makes a world of difference as a business owner when you are thrilled about your web presence) 🙂

EdenPURE Canada

EdenPURE Canada screenshotEdenPURECanada.ca was a unique site to create.  The owner wanted to portray the feeling of “warmth” in the design.  In order to achieve this look and feel, I consulted a color specialist who recommended an orange and purple combination.

  • orange gives the feeling of warmth, without being too hot
  • purple/blue is the compliment to orange
  • gold gives it a richness and brightness

The background design of the wavy lines helps to depict the heat radiating and filling the space, while the pattern in the header with the gold gives a soft and airy feel.

However, after a short time, the site owner discovered that the majority of his visitors were male, so we darkened up the site a bit to try to pull out more of the colors in the heating unit, changing out the purple for black, thus, keeping the “warmth” feel to the site, but making it a bit more masculine.  We made some other adjustments and the site has done very well.  You will see the finished product to the left.

In fact, this client chose the optional statistics package with his hosting and loves to optimize his page according to what he finds.  The site continues to rank in the top three positions on www.google.ca, www.bing.com, and www.google.com, much of this due to the excellent SEO copywriting of Cindy Bidar.  Cindy is excellent at what she does! Here is a screen shot of one aspect of his statistics:


These are daily stats.  You can see that the EdenPURE.ca site rarely dips below triple digits (blue).  This client has also found that many of his returning visitors (orange) have become buyers, which is GREAT news!

I have to tell you that working with you has been a joy.

Being new to the internet “game” I was more than a little worried about how I was going to build and manage an effective website. You have put all the fear to rest with your creativity and professionalism.  Working with Dramatic Design has proven to be one of the best decisions I made.

Thank you!

Just want to say thank you for all your hard work on my web site. I have been getting a lot of positive comments. The fast response to getting my pictures posted has really helped me with my puppy buyers. The consumer friendly way the whole site is set up is a GREAT feature. I feel my web site has really increased my sales and given me a lot of education in how important the web site is to my business.

While Mary Kay was already known around the world for her champion Chow Chows in certain circles, she is finding that having a web presence is exposing her to a whole new audience of people who want to buy her Chow Chow puppies.  We’ve been posting photos of the pups from birth…and they are just adorable!

Baton Rouge Real Estate Appraisers

baton-rouge-real-estate-1I recently created a custom WordPress theme for Bill Cobb at Baton Rouge Real Estate Appraisers.  He needed wide outside columns to accommodate his videos and other information.  He knew exactly what he wanted and was wonderful to work with.

Bill liked his new theme so much that he asked me to create a second theme, very similar, but in blue.  Here is a screenshot of that theme:


Bill was so kind as to record this video and write the testimonial below. Thanks, Bill! You were great to work with!

“Hi, I’m Bill Cobb Appraiser in Baton Rouge working with WordPress Blogs for marketing help for my appraisal business. I had been searching online for about 6 months now trying a premium theme to use and couldn’t locate a theme I liked. I did find a Realtor’s website I really liked though. I found Kim Smith’s “Dramatic Design” on Ebay under the keyword “Wordpress” and emailed her about my search, the site I liked, my specifications I was looking for and to see if she could assist me. She said she could, so I purchased her Ebay Auction. Kim immediately went into action on my project, asked more questions about my desires for the site and went to work. The theme she designed is located @ https://www.batonrougerealestateappraisers.net/ and I am very pleased with Kim Smith’s Dramatic Design. Her price was reasonable, her attention to detail was superb, and her delivery was rather quick for a Web Design Company. I highly recommend https://www.dramatic-design.com/ .”

Coupons, Deals and More

I recently had the opportunity to work with Ann at Coupons, Deals and More on a new graphic header for her blog, a web button, and a new business card design.  She was very pleased with the outcome.



Kim was a sheer delight to work with.  Her patience, guidance, dedication and expertise turned  a nebulous idea into custom logo.  Dramatic Design exceeded my expectations giving my site a custom look at an affordable price.
