Selecting the right web design company for your business is important.  Going Online is the right choice for several, important reasons:


Designing a high quality website requires strong visual as well as technical design skills. Many designers can code well, but lack artistic talent. Others know how to apply the principles of visual design to create a great looking site, but lack the ability to code it well and the site languishes in obscurity. Through my many years of instructing students in all aspects of web design I have become proficient in all aspect of web design and development.

All my sites are customized and well-designed whether they are built using an existing template as a starting point or completely hand coded to a client's exact specifications starting with a blank page. I continuously work to stay current and aware of new developments in web related technologies to ensure my sites are fully compliant with the latest web standards.


Going Online provides all the services you need to either go online or to improve your existing site if you are already online, but want better results. A range of services are available to meet your exact needs and specifications. Everything from basic web design to full hosting and domain name registration services. I can take care of every aspect of your website and you don’t have to worry about a thing. If you would like to learn more about the services I offer, view either my Web Design Packages or Website Design Makeovers pages.


Going Online is owned and operated by freelance, web designer, Hans Dewit. Working with a freelance web designer offers you the benefit of direct access to the only person working on your project. No delays in communication. I will be the contact person at all times.

Also, as a freelance designer working from home you avoid paying the higher prices needed to cover the costs of office space and other overheads. You get all the advantages of working with a large company while keeping the cost down.

Although I work independently, I have a number of contacts I can contact should I encounter difficulties. I also have access to advanced resources through online forums and discussion groups I participate with. I have never been unable to meet a design challenge.


Going Online is still a start-up business. I am trying to build my business by delivering quality service and establishing a good reputation where clients are eager to recommend my services. Therefore, I place great value on being open and honest. I can be trusted to develop for you an optimal, affordable design solution.

I will not try to oversell you on expensive packages. For example, I can provide you with a very affordable, full feature Content Management System for your website using highly developed, open source platforms such as Wordpress, Drupal and Joomla. This option eliminates the need for time consuming and expensive, hand coding and can accommodate just about any specification.


I have over twenty years of experience in web design and development. I have expertise in all aspects of web design including typography, multimedia, graphic design, e-commerce, database design, Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and computer programming. I have worked extensively with all kinds of software including Photoshop, Illustrator, Dreamweaver and Fireworks as well as web languages such as HTML, CSS, PHP, Javascript, Ruby, XML, MySQL and others.


I have chosen to limit my services to small businesses and individuals living close to my home in Duncan, BC on Vancouver Island. This way I am able to offer my clients direct access and personalized service. I do not outsource any work overseas. If you choose to work with Going Online you are supporting the local economy.
