about TGS Creative

Are you ready for a website redesign?

Hello. I’m Tom G. Semmes, founder of TGS Creative. What I primarily do is redesign websites. I take sites that are out of date, disorganized, and hard to maintain and, using the WordPress content management system, create solutions that will engage your visitors and build your business.

You already know your website is important to your organization or business. But are you getting the most you can from your current site? Are you ready for a redesign? Take this short quiz:

Mark a checkbox for each statement that describes your situation.

Your website hasn’t been updated in a while. You aren’t even sure how that’s done.

You are paying someone to maintain the site and still I lot of your issues haven’t been answered.

You have a backlog of ideas and updates for the site  but don’t have the time to make them, and not sure where to get started.

You aren’t sure if your site is optimized for search engines.

You get calls from people who can’t find  information on your site even though you thought it was easy to find

Your website hasn’t kept pace with current technology and user’s expectations. It frustrates both you and users.

The look of your site seems out-dated and old-fashioned. It doesn’t reflect the professionalism of  your organization.

If you answered “Yes” to any of these, you need to take action. Let me work with you to create a dynamic site that builds on your company’s strengths, leverages new opportunities, and draws business to you.

Here’s what I’ll do

  • Build a website that gives the control you need and that will grow with you and your business.
  • Create a clean and contemporary, custom design that is easy to navigate and enjoyable to use.
  • Collect and organize content that will  keep your visitors coming back again and again.
  • Analyze, install, and configure web solutions to provide additional power such as e-commerce and membership systems
  • Optimize for search engines and integrate with social media
  • Provide a trouble-free launch, and backup with technical support as necessary

About me

Tom G Semmes

Here is a little bit about me.

I had a 20-year career as in-house designer and production manager for a several DC associations. I know how organizations work and how things get done.

I was educated in both fine arts and economics (BA, University of Maryland). A balanced background for a web designer—a little bit of geek and a little bit of artist.

I built my first website in 1997, coding HTML by hand. I started working with WordPress in 2005 and realized that this popular content management system gave me the power to offer full-service web services at prices that everyone can afford.

I work out of Cowork Frederick, a shared workspace for independent professionals, and often collaborate with my “coworkers” who include writers, IT specialists, and SEO experts.

When I am not at the office, I am often in my art studio. Visit my art website to see what I am up to.

I live in Frederick, MD. If you want to get to know me a little better, visit me at Facebook or LinkedIn.
