Responsive Design

What good is a site if it looks good on the desktop and terrible on mobile. With over 60% of all internet traffic now on mobile, having a responsive design is the only option.

Monthly, annual and custom date range options are available for maintenance. I am also open to guiding clients as well.

 

ABOUT ME

ASHER HARDT

Driven by a philosophy of constant passion, this LA native has melded his love of architecture and art into a single craft.  A passion encouraged by his grandmother, Asher’s fondest memories are found driving about Los Angles and looking at homes with her.  Plagued by an uncertain and unconventional upbringing, his life and art, have grown out of the motto “I never lose… I just tend to learn the hard way.”  Giving his art endless sources of inspiration to draw upon. It was within this chaos that he found his niche, as Mie van der Rohe puts it “Less is More.” Which has become the cornerstone of his work? The understated elegance that Brunello Cuccinelli and Lucio Fontana bring into their repertoires would harmonize with the timeless aesthetic Asher brings to his canvases.   
 
Using a variety of scrap wood in his art, Asher uses these reclaimed, sometimes abandoned pieces to mimic breathtaking architecture. “It’s therapeutic,” says Hardt, “allowing my experiences to speak through the wood and allowing it to reach its own unthought of potential.” 
 
Discovering the outlet, he’s searched for, for thirty years, this is a unique opportunity to watch him develop as an artist. In the future, he plans to continue expanding the mediums in which to express himself and continue to learn and grow.

 

 

Creative Design

I prefer to think and work outside of the “box” as I believe that is how you define trends rather than follow them.

 

Unrivaled Quality

Content is still king and I am a believer in providing the highest quality user experience possible, both for my clients and their audiences.

 

 

 

 

 

FREE CONSULTATION

I  provide you with a free consultation so we can both learn more about the project at hand and what your best options are.

 

 

 

 

WHY YOU SHOULD CHOOSE THE HARDT

 

 

BEAUTIFUL Design

My optimized responsive website designs look amazing whether you’re on a mobile or desktop.

 

COMPETITIVE PRICING

You will be hard pressed to find a web designer with the white glove services I offer and priced as aggressively as I price my services.

 

 

24/7 SUPPORT DURING BUILD-OUT

I am obsessive by nature. Its a blessing and curse. That said, it’s a blessing when it comes to my web design. I eat, breathe and sleep every project I work on and I make certain that I am available at all times.

 

EASY CONFIGURATION

The layouts I design are intuitive by nature. Meaning, the layouts flow seamlessly from one to the next and so on. I try to think of every demographic and whether or not they would find navigating my web designs easily.

 

SOCIAL MEDIA EXPERT

I am a master social media strategist. This allows me to easily integrate your branding (existing or I can create one for you) into the major social media platforms and your new website seamlessly.

 

OPEN WORK ENVIRONMENT

Working with a web developer, whether you’re building a website for your company or personal, it requires a certain level of trust. It’s important to me that my clients feel I have their best interest in mind and having an open dialogue during the process can be the difference between having a good website and a great website.

What Sort Of Functionality Has Been Integrated Into The Hardt Posts and Overall Site?

I have recently completed the Hardt Forum, where we will all be able to make introductions and debut our latest and greatest projects to our peers. Along with the forum, there will be the release of a subscription, from which you will have an opportunity to learn what goes into building an architectural, design art or really any creative brand in the digital space, with an emphasis on social media. I was able to make logging in and out of the system incredibly easy, by implementing "one-click" social login. Being logged into the system allows for you to not only easily submit your projects for feature consideration, but it allows you to create topics in the forum and to participate in upvoting/downvoting. If you look at every post on this site, there is an up/down arrow at the top of every post. This is a function similar to Reddit, in which you can vote to have a project higher up in the overall featured list., or you can vote to have it further down. I think that's a very cool function. I am also excited about a little more of a longer-term goal which is creating a curriculum from which those interested in keeping up with the fast pace of social media and digital marketing and building a branding with a lasting impression will be able to build something they will be proud of.

Why Choose The Hardt To Design & Develop My Website?

There are lots of reasons why you should choose me to design and develop your website. I'll begin with my attention to detail and passion for quality aesthetics. You couple those two intangibles with a superior understanding of SEO and .php functionality as well as .CSS styling, well, you end up with a website like the one you're on, mine. That being said, if you were to request a website with as much content and pages/posts, it would fall under my "customized" website section, under costs. When you select the "Full Website Package" you can expect to have an initial meeting (Skype or in person) where we will explore your goals and expectations. The same process applies to the "Brand + Website" package. You will then receive a report/proposal, which once completed and signed, I will begin work. The scheduling of the events I just laid out is dependant on scheduling and current projects I am working. Accepted projects are on a first come first serve basis, there is no favoritism.

What (if any) Is The Payment Scheduling For The Web Design Service?

So, the website design and developing services are broken down via package and is dependant on the volume of anticipated work. For example, The Full Package requires a deposit/down payment. The payment scheduling for this option is as follows: Down Payment/Deposit, Midway Point, Final Product Delivery. There is a review process as well tailored for each client and is done prior to each payment. The "Brand + Website" package require a deposit as well, and is broken down in a similar schedule as the "Full Website Package." Finally the most basic package "Website Package" which does not require a deposit and is guaranteed to be delivered within 1 week. The "Website Package" does not include reviews aside from the Final Product Delivery

*"Website" package 1-week guarantee is subject to change and is dependant on the current workload.

What Is The Turnaround For A Website Designed By The Hardt?

This is dependent on the website package you chose. Turnaround times can range from 1 week for a simple one-page website, to 2 months for a super-customized massive website. Since it is currently just myself working, you get the benefit of a one on one experience and no hierarchy to weigh down on the creativity. I welcome outside the box thinking. I may actually even promote it.

How Do I SubmitMy Project(s) And What If I Don't Hear Back Right Away?

Submitting is very easy and straightforward. Simply click here and follow the instructions on the page. If you don't hear back right away, please understand, I am one person, and will do my absolute best to get back to you. Unfortunately, only accepted projects will receive responses. I apologize in advance if that seems a little harsh, but it is a matter of time and efficiency more than anything else.

How Do I Know That My Project Will Be Reached/Seen By As Many Users As Possible?

I offer a full reporting of my most recent posts to those interested in working together. In the report, you'll find literally any and all the insights you would ever need to be able to make an informed decision as to whether you'd like to use my services.

Why Would I Pay "The Hardt" To Post My Project, When Other Sites Like Dezeen, DesignMilk, Dwell, etc. Don't Charge Anything?

Completely fair question. And to be totally honest, those brand/websites all have a much larger following, projects budget, a print version, staff etc. It's quite difficult to compete as a single employee. That said, you get a lot of intangibles, none of which those other brands or companies can offer, including immediate publishing, with the other companies they're dealing with a hierarchy, and I'm sure they're dealing with Editors etc. The Hardt, it's just me. If I like it, it gets on. Another intangible you get with me is building a relationship at the ground level. That's something money cannot buy, an opportunity to get involved in something like this at the very beginning. There's a lot more, but it's getting late and I need to finish these FAQ's. Email me if you're still concerned.

What Are Some Of The Ways For Me And/Or My Company To Get Involved In What The Hardt Is Doing?

There are a number of ways you can get involved ranging from being an investor, or you can submit an application for an internship. If you’re an architecture student/professor, artist, or even a venture capitalist looking for your next project, I can promise you, this will be an interesting brand for you to keep an eye on. You can become a sponsor and advertise on the website with banners and the such. You can be active in The Forum I just released. If you're a design/architecture/art magazine or publisher, I am open to collabs.You can be an affiliate and help me spread awareness about what I am trying to accomplish here. There are tons of ways so if you're interested get at me ASAP because I could use a hand.

How Many People Currently Work At The Hardt?

Me. Asher.

Is There A Way To Package The Web Design With The Social Media Services?

Every client is unique with each having specific needs they are looking to have met. That being said, the answer is Yes in almost any case I can think of. Packaging the web and social together is most likely best for brands or young companies looking to gain the upper hand on the competition. It is also dependant on what you'd like for my personal involvement to be as well. This package would almost certainly require a full-time commitment for several months while I build out the platform from which you will continue growing your brand long after I have completed the initial development.

When Will Hardt App Be Available? How Do I Become A Member?

Hardt App Is Still In The Early Planning Stages, However, It Is Fully Ready To Be Engineered and Designed Upon Successful Funding Of The Project. I would love to begin work on it right away and seeing as how my developing abilities have been progressing fairly rapidly, I don't see it being out of the realm of possibility that I may be able to build it myself in the coming months. We'll see.
