Webcrafting


A web site is place where a webmaster must figure out how to juggle webpages without losing the message being sent to the public.

On the other hand, every webpage stands by itself, an individual work of art cast in electrons and pixels, fonts and images. They need to be custom-crafted to communicate their multi-faceted messages to viewers.
