WindyHill Design is a web-based group of loosely-associated
artists and producers. We take take pride in our originality, creativity
WindyHill Design produces original design on the web,
without diluting or diminishing the commercial or personal goals and requirements
of the sites we create. How do we keep this focus? By enclosing
content and functionality within the container of unique, high-quality
design and digital arts components.
WindyHill produces new sites, redesigns existing ones,
and creates website components such as layouts, graphics, Flash and text
Besides design, layout, graphics, Flash, animations, and original artwork
(both digital and handdrawn or painted), we do image and photo retouching
and optimization, and handle sites' original and revision copywriting,
content research, data collection and organization, site and navigation
structuring, and usability (interface) design requirements. The
sites we build meet W3C
Level 1.0 Accessibility guidelines (and can be coded to meet higher-level
guidelines if required), and are cross-browser compatible.
WindyHill Design develops on Windows PC's. We use
(an enhanced HTML text editor), Macromedia's
(a visual HTML editor), and Ipswitch's
Pro (an explorer-interface FTP client) to create and publish web sites.
Based on our own experience with these popular web development tools,
we recommend their use to build and maintain web pages.
Heather Quinn conceived of WindyHill Design in 1998, and
began teaching herself the necessary web, graphics and design skills at
that time, drawing on her previously acquired fine arts and programming
skills. Her interest in the fine arts is still active. In
addition, she brings years of business experience to the mix. More
about her personal background can be seen at: http://www.windyhilldesign.org.
