Customize SmugMug

Some of you have come here from my “How to Make an Online Photo Album” article, where I recommend SmugMug as a great place to host your photo portfolio. Rather than choose the basic themes from SmugMug (which are quite good and flexible), I wanted something extra special and really customize my SmugMug page.

Reasons to further customize your SmugMug site:

  • You have a unique logo or brand and you want it presented in an unexpected way.
  • You want your portfolio and website to look totally unique and stand out.
  • You have an idea for something, and the default themes just are not cutting it.
  • Or, when it comes to your online business, you are simply willing to invest in something that keeps your brand and web presence wonderfully unique.

Zoho Deisgn

For my portfolio, I chose Zoho Design — the gentleman that helped me out there was Justin Busa.  They charge from $400 and up, based on how customized you want the site.  He is very sharp and they have great versatility.

The above site is an example of a “Basic website” design, according to Zoho

The above online portfolio from Turner Forte is an example of a more advanced “Custom Website and Logo Design”

Green Man Design Studio

I’ve met another quality high-end customization gentleman named Todd Atteberry. He runs Green Man Design Studio, and his costs are based on a higher level of features. They start at $750 and go up to $1,500. Todd also seems like the kind of guy that would throw in a free beer too.

Todd’s main page will get you all the info you need, including more details on pricing/packages.

Here is a nice sample image from his portfolio

New Skin Media

Melissa Crain has a very good eye and she runs New Skin Media. Her prices start at $350 and go up from there. From her website, you can see her vast portfolio of various looks and more details on her prices. Melissa has a good sense of style, and excellent taste in color and layout. I think you’ll agree! Below are two varied examples of her work.

A very pretty blog for Arken Studios – Melissa has a nice graphic design touch, eh?

And here is a very different look – more sleek and net-dark, which is also cool

j R Customization

Jerry Roek runs j R Customization and his prices start and $600 and go up from there, depending on the size of the project. You can spend some time poking around his site to see examples of his work for various clients. He has done everything from wedding sites to portrait sites to landscape sites.
