Greetings! I am Adam Herbst, a freelance website designer.

Be kind, for everyone is fighting a difficult battle.

Adam Herbst


Hello! Do you need a website? You're in luck! I love doing web design! It is difficult to do on your own. It requires you to be a jack of all trades. Graphic designer, programmer, writer, typographer, designer and communicator when interacting with people. It is challenging, but rewarding. There is always room to grow!

A bit about me: I am a nerd from WAY back. I have lived in Indiana most of my life. I got my first computer back in 1999 by detasseling corn over the summer. I love computers and most forms of programming. I am currently a student at Indiana Wesleyan University studying Computer Information Systems with a minor in business.

I have done occasional personal and professional websites for myself and others since 2001.

I founded this venture as a creative outlet to provide people and businesses with unique Web Design solutions.


So busy... NOT currently taking new customers. Add your name to the queue

I run my business with morality and integrity. My *digital* handshake is my word.

I do not make “adult” websites in any form. I also hope that my clients use their utmost discretion when posting things on their sites.

For my customers I offer low level tech support. I can help you with something like reinstalling windows or installing Linux (I ALWAYS recommend Linux! Try it!) or maybe getting rid of a virus.

Right now I charge a flat rate fee, not hourly, because while I have experience, I am still learning. This is also why my prices for my hand-made sites is so low. I also offer cheap managed website hosting for all of my customers.

As far as prices go there are a few different ways I bill: Static websites are websites whose content does not change very much. You can change content but it is a bit harder than changing content with a dynamic website.

Dynamic websites typically use a CMS (or Content Management System) such as wordpress, joomla, or Craft. They are easy to edit and post new content, but are more complex to set up. Personal sites typically do not require as much work as business sites. Business sites are usually more important as well.

I do not typically do the client’s content myself, but I go over it for search engine optimization purposes.

I believe in transparency so:

Typical pricing tiers:
  • A personal static website is the cheapest.
  • A business static website is next as far as price.
  • A personal dynamic site comes next.
  • A business dynamic site is the next tier of price.
  • A business site where I have to fabricate lots of images, content, and monetary applications (a site where someone has an online store) is the most expensive one, additionally I have to buy a SSL (Secure website certificate) and set it up to create a safe space for credit card information etc.

**I am not a big box chain and I seek to build a relationship with my customers.**


First off: I am a Christian and I love to help others.

Second: I do not discriminate on the basis of religion, sexual orientation, race, or gender when accepting clients and as a rule in my life. I do not make “adult” websites in any form. I also ask that my clients use their utmost discretion when posting things on their sites.

If you are looking at this site you are probably considering your options as far as a new website goes. You can either make it yourself and go through the plethora of methods that are available. Or you may pay someone to make it.

Making it yourself is always the cheapest option. However, if you are unaccustomed to the website design process like user experience or even the internet in general I would not recommend this. There is also a learning curve so it may take up quite a bit of your time. Balance your time for it early on.

Your other option is to pay someone to do it for you. This is where I come in. I have tons of computer/internet/web design experience. I would choose this option especially if you do not have much time on your hands.

Some tips for getting a site elsewhere:
  • Be wary of anyone who tries to charge you for a Wordpress CMS install as this is free software.
  • Think about what you feel is a decent price you are willing to pay. Ask for clear reasons why they are charging what they charge.
  • Ask them ahead of time how much it is to upgrade the server your site is on in case it really takes off.
  • Make sure you have a website backup either on server or locally on your machine. Also, make sure you understand how to secure your server and keep the bad guys out.
  • Ask about their SEO (Search Engine Optimization) practices if you are going through a company.
  • If you are making it yourself definitely look into SEO.
  • Have a plan in case your site goes down.
