About Site Design Guru

Site Design Guru was founded by myself, Megan Northcutt. I have been in the tech industry for over 10 years. After years of working in the corporate world as a technical lead and website developer, I decided to split off and do what I love most, website design. I have a diverse background, spanning from Java and PHP development, to JavaScript/HTML5/CSS front-end work, databases/SQL, web security, and mobile web development; I am self taught in Illustrator and Photoshop as well as Photography. I am here to help with any questions/concerns you may have about your website, even if they aren't necessarily related to design.

My design approach is very simple and efficient. Since I have a background in programming, I begin laying out the site on the web immediately (although not visible by search engines initially). Sometimes I will put up a maintenance page if the url is already a known url. I do not provide initial photoshop mockups of the design, as all my design work can be seen in real-time. I will speak to clients initially about their design preferences, expectations, and requirements. After I have been given the website content, I can begin with the design. I work with Wordpress extensively, and have also worked with Shopify.

WHAT CLIENTS ARE SAYING ABOUT MY WORK...

“The work by Megan was phenomenal! In the very first shot at re-designing our website, www.drtimmccarthy.com, and sending us the mockup, she really hit the nail on the head! We felt really excited and could see immediately that it took the professional image of the business to a completely new level. The colors were wonderful and complementary and her many little nuances of design created a wonderful sense of flow throughout the whole site. Our website now stands out among all of our local competitors. I would recommend her to any business owner.”

-Dr. Timothy J. McCarthy

“Site Design Guru is a fantastic website designer/developer that we have had the pleasure of designing our website, www.lincolnsquarechiropt.com! Site Design Guru is knowledgeable and approachable when it comes to the needs of our business and the needs of making a great website that will attract new patients and impress existing patients as well. We highly recommend Site Design Guru and truly appreciate the personal touch and care taken in designing and implementing our practice and its uniqueness that translates well on the web.”

-Dr. Joseph R. Meeting, D.C.

“I have loved working with (and continuing to work with) Megan on my style & beauty site daniellealexandra.com. She is extremely professional, knowledgeable & flexible. Prior to working with Megan, I had quite a few kinks with my site, and it wasn’t quite what I wanted. I found it extremely difficult to find someone willing to provide me a personalized experience and actually talk with my about my goals for my site (rather than just email). Megan was able to fix my site & help me achieve the overall aesthetic that I wanted. I continue to work with Megan, as I am constantly updating my site, and she always responds and completes the work in a timely manner. I highly recommend Site Design Guru if you are looking to have your website designed, revamped and/or maintained.”

-Danielle Alexandra, Fashion Beauty and Lifestyle Blogger

“I frequently use Megan Northcutt's services to design, build, update and maintain my websites. She is smart, responsive and the quality of her work is excellent. Megan works very efficiently, with attention to details and in my experience always delivers ahead of schedule. It's a pleasure to work with her.”
