Beautiful Design + Easy Navigation + Device Compatibility
Websites not only need to look good, but they need to function well and be easy to follow and understand. They need to be viewable on all mobile phones and tablets and accessible at the touch of potential customers’ fingertips. Take a look at my work, read up on my faq’s, and hopefully we can team up and get your business where it needs to be.

ATTENTION NON-PROFIT ANIMAL RESCUES!
I offer my web design services free of charge to animal rescue organizations with 501c3 status (proof required). This could be for a brand-spankin’ new site or a redesign, your call. Domain, hosting, and maintenance not included, completion time will depend on current workload. Please get in touch through the contact form below if interested.
Small Business Focus
Beautifully designed websites at a fraction of the cost that a big design firm will charge you. You’re a start-up, you’re family owned and run, you’re a one-man shop like me. You need a website but you don’t want to go into debt to get one.
A Business Necessity
Every business needs a web presence, even if it’s just for sharing basic information. Nowadays so many people look to buy products or compare services online, whether at home or on their mobile phone or tablet.
In need of a logo? I can help with that too! Your logo is the first thing people will see when they learn about your business. It needs to be visually appealing, make sense for the business type, and not look like clip art (sorry clip art fans).

What My Clients Have To Say
Working with Leslie to build several WordPress sites has been more than a pleasure. She is talented, capable, willing and flexible ― all of the qualities you want in a website designer. Leslie creates sites that are user-friendly, visually pleasing and also ones that can easily be managed and updated by the operator. I so enjoyed working with Leslie, she is the one I direct friends and associates to use when they are in need of a new website.
Thank goodness for Leslie @ A Girl And Her Mac. I am a small business owner, that loves working with other small business owners. My website had been idle for almost a year and a half. I was getting desperate to find someone accountable, creative, affordable and efficient. Leslie is super on top of her work and really helps “move you along” to get the results needed. I was impressed by how eager she was to complete and exceed expectations set for the website. She does most of her work through email and phone calls beforehand, which is super convenient for any busy business owner! After all that was said and done, Leslie assured me of her knowledge for the industry and I even moved over my hosting responsibilities to her. Thank you Leslie for your work, my clients are already raving about how easy it is to make an appointment online now!
Take a look at a cool write-up I got to do for the Elegant Themes Customer Spotlight series.
A Girl and her Mac is a dream come true! Leslie built our site from the ground up. Our website is a cornerstone to our successful business. Leslie is very accommodating and a dream to work with! Leslie has been attentive to our every need, and there’ve been many, from day one. She continues to keep our business website up, secure and profitable 24/7. Leslie takes care of everything so I can focus on the business.
Let me begin by saying that I’m a big fan of A Girl and Her Mac! I would highly recommend A Girl and Her Mac to anyone that is looking for a website!
Leslie Bernal came highly recommended for the design our summer youth wildlife camp and she exceeded my expectations! Not only did Leslie create a visually appealing and highly functional website, she was a pleasure to work with. She promptly responded to all of my questions and continues assist as needed. We have received positive feedback for the website and are confident that it will increase the interest in our camp – exactly what we needed!

I’ve started up a blog to give out some helpful advice and tips on WordPress theme customization, communicating with your clients, and design-related topics in general.
FAQ’s and other need-to-knows…
If you have questions or concerns that I haven’t touched on here please contact me!
Let me be upfront here, I do not claim to be a super-guru developer. What I do claim to be is a great D E S I G N E R. My background is in Fine Art and Print Design, which means I was trained in foundations and principles primarily pertaining to composition, space, balance, proportion, and the like. I have a good eye for layout and typography, I care about “the grid”, and I have good taste (which is more important than you might think!). I have a BFA in Graphic Design and I have taught myself a **ton** on my own time to improve my skills. That background partnered with my coding experience is why I can absolutely get you a sleek, well-functioning website so that your business can be on par with others in it’s category.
What does a website cost?
Of course price varies based on every clients’ needs, but I can tell you it will range from $650 to $2000. My prices are honestly quite low compared to other freelancers and firms, I urge you to check around and find out for yourself.
I offer payment plans, and I do pro bono work on occasion for non-profits whose causes I believe in.
How I keep costs down.
The first way I’m able to keep costs down is by using WordPress, which is a CMS (Content Management System). What’s important for you to know about that is it saves me the time of not having to write foundation code necessary for a website, and that in turn, saves you money. A benefit of having a WordPress site is that you can manage your content yourself should you want to. It’s quite user-friendly and basic photo and text changes require no knowledge of coding.
Secondly, I’m a one-gal shop. I’m the only one you will be dealing with. I do all the sketches, Photoshopping, designing, coding customization, everything it takes to get your website up. I don’t have a staff to pay, I don’t have an office space I rent, I own my own software and hardware so I don’t need to tack on fees to cover those types of expenses. The only additional costs aside from the actual designing would be related to domain and hosting fees, any special software you may need for your business, or printing costs, should your project require it.
What forms of payment do you take?
Do I offer payment plans?
What is included?
Limits on you. Yes, you.
How long will a website take to build?
As of March 2015 wait time for websites is minimum 6 weeks. Print work varies by project. I will always try to get things done as quickly as possible without sacrificing quality.

About A Girl and Her Mac
I’m a web designer based in the great state of Texas and I focus on helping small businesses and non-profits get great websites. Many small business owners resort to using free site builders with templates because of their lack of funds. The end result is usually ugly and unorganized. I work with their budgets and offer payment plans so they can have another option. firstname.lastname@example.org
