Web PersonalityWeb design is a lot like fashion—everyone has a distinct style.

And though there are aesthetic trends that come and go in the Web design world, the best websites are the ones that reflect the unique personality of the people for whom they were designed.

So if you’re interested in creating an author website (or having someone do it for you), but are not sure what kind of design you want to go for, no worries!

This quick little quiz will reveal what kind of Web personality you are and help point you in the right direction.

Working with the Web Design Relief team was a total pleasure. They made the process easy, in-depth, professional, and lyrical. I wanted a site that leaned toward the bohemian and yet held an edge of minimalist sophistication. I couldn’t be happier with my very inviting and creative site! We should win awards with this one!

I cannot possibly detail how professional and helpful Web Design Relief has been in helping me launch my collection of short stories—there are just too many things they have done! They’ve been there for me all along the way, guiding me in developing my book and into the 21st century of web design and social media platforms. It could have been a bewildering journey; Instead it was one that was organized and so pleasant. Truly, Web Design Relief has blown me away by what they have created. The first time I watched my book trailer (who knew there were book trailers?), I cried. That team perfectly imaged what my book is about. I want to thank the whole team for their skill and creativity. I appreciate it so much.
