My First Muse Website – Beauty of Beads

My first Muse website is about to go live. Working for my client Marian, has been a great experience. Marian is a jewellery maker, working from her home studio and producing some lovely pieces for both adults and children. After finishing Marian’s branding for her business, I moved onto creating her website and it has been a great experience. She has been lovely to work with and thankfully she is happy with my work.

When I first discovered Muse I was incredibly excited. Adobe had finally produced just the thing that I needed to get me through the web design jungle. It’s not like I’m cheating by not having to write code, it definitely helps to have some knowledge of web coding if you want to understand just how it’s working and you also need to be reasonably proficient with the use of their other products. With this software and some working knowledge of other Adobe products, you can make something that is unique to your client rather than using ready prepared templates.

It’s been a rather long learning experience, but I can safely say that I’m getting the hang of how Muse works. I’m looking forward to updating my own website as well as starting work on two more sites for new clients over the next couple of months. I’ll be publishing Marian’s site tomorrow, so I’ll add a link to it once it goes live. Any feedback would be great – good or bad – I can take the pain of constructive criticism if it means I can improve on my skills and put that into my future work.

In the meantime, here’s a sneak preview of the front page of the site…

About CathieDesigns

After many years of wishing I could be successful in a profession that I actually enjoyed, I embarked on a new career as a Graphic Designer. By gaining a BA(hons)Graphic Design in 2009 I have realised my dream of being part of the creative industry. In my capacity as designer I listen to my clients needs, suggest practical solutions and aspire to portray their business in a professional and creative manner. I am competitive with my prices as I like to stay affordable for smaller businesses like myself. However, this doesn't mean I compromise on the quality of my work. I pride myself with being a bit of a perfectionist and would only ever give 100% to every project I take on. Please contact me for any digital marketing & graphics work you might need - I enjoy a challenge and will gladly take on any job, big or small
