Donna Halme Designs created a Squarespace website design for a synthetic turf installer and property maintenance company Tanner’s Turf.
The website design is styled like a magazine, very modern and informative with striking headlines, yet clean, easy to read, and navigate. The site also showcases all the beautiful photos of their completed projects.
The main navigation is displayed neatly where, when clicked, I added an emoji of a green seedling for interest to offset the dark background. By creating the Home page with the use of parallax scrolling it provides a visitor the information they are seeking quickly and easily.
All social media accounts were added and the Services page displays as an image gallery on a timed slideshow. These images are linked to further information about those particular services offered. As always, images and text show beautifully on all devices by the incorporation of responsive design. I also customized index page titles and url slugs to gain greater search engine optimization for the website. The 'Careers' page has a job description for available positions and a secure link to their employment application form. This was created so potential applicants can add their information, upload their resume, and submit directly to the company.
"I knew that Donna had designed a website at my current position and her work was amazing! Donna is very detailed oriented and understands my ideas. It was easy to work together with her and she was extremely organized and efficient in designing our website at Tanner’s Turf. I would highly recommend Donna Halme Designs for designing and developing a website as Donna was extremely professional and worked very hard to create our beautiful website."
Dayna Yelland, Tanner’s Turf

Donna Halme Designs created a Squarespace website design for Steveston Glass Ltd. It has a modern clean look, is easy to navigate and showcases their many completed projects. The Careers page has a secure employment application form created so potential applicants can add their information, upload their resume, and submit directly to the company.
A domain connection was done rather than a transfer as they have a registered .ca (Canadian) domain. Their present Shaw Business email was connected in a way to not interfere with any loss of previous emails and work cohesively within their new website.
"Immediately when I saw Donna's previous web design work, I new I made the right decision in hiring her. She was very receptive to our ideas and willing to work together to get the result we wanted despite us having a schedule that was sporadic. Her willingness to fit into our schedule was more than appreciated! Donna's professionalism and attention to detail as well as her understanding of our needs and how to reflect that on our website was amazing! Donna made sure our website was complete before we received our final invoice and she made it easy to pay for the wonderful service she provided us. I have, and would again, recommend Donna Halme Designs to anyone needing web design services!"

This website turned out to be useful and successful because it enabled land developers, who received an extensive amount of calls, to not only sell these properties themselves but was a convenient way to provide information to prospective buyers by referring them to their website. All the important property information both legal and engineering documents are displayed.
