Website Design & Development

Abstractionz is a full package service when it comes to website development and design. Whether you’re starting something fresh and need a website or you already have a website that needs some love and care, you came to the right place!

Like putting together a perfect cup of coffee, Abstractionz brings the cream and sugar to your project by combining design and development in our service. The result: a website that is appealing to look at, is well organized, informative, has everything you need (and maybe didn’t think of) and flows smoothly.


The first step is as simple as a conversation. We’ll talk about what it is you do, goals for your website, your target audience, and your branding.

I don’t disappear after your website launches. We’ll be planning social media strategy, marketing, and continued content development. 


Abstractionz includes SEO (Search Engine Optimization) with all website work, focusing on making sure search engines and social media can adequately read and index your site. This is accomplished by following the industry’s best SEO practices.

Domain, Hosting, & SSL

For simplicity and peace of mind, in house website hosting is available. By integrating the hosting, domain, and SSL into your monthly maintenance package you get one bill and don’t have to worry about missing renewal dates.


A website is never truly finished. Abstractionz can maintain your website by adding and changing the site’s content as needed with ease. Maintenance also entails keeping everything behind the scenes running smoothly and security monitoring.

Additional Services

Book Covers

Your book cover is just as important as your synopsis. It can convey the sense of a mystery waiting to be solved or a new world about to be discovered.

We can even recommend some affordable options that we work with regularly.

Recent Work


As a public water supply operation, providing information and online billing to our users is important. Abstractionz developed and maintains our website in a prompt, professional manner at a very reasonable cost. I can not say enough positive things about our dealings with this fine business.

-Joe Cosgrove, Godley Water District

Abstractionz redesigned two websites for us with quick turnarounds, and maintains/updates them for reasonable rates, including dealing with some hosting transfers and other confusing background work. Great to work with and maintains contact via several methods.

-Jessica Johnson, Mounds Theatre

My business hired Abstractionz to redesign our website, and it was a great experience. We have a great working relationship, the service was very reasonably priced, and we couldn’t be happier with the final product. Highly recommended.

– Zeke Nelsons, WeARGames


Some of the folks groovin to the different beats of their goals and dreams.



I’m a freelance website designer operating under the name Abstractionz. Having been in the biz since 1998, I bring a lot of creativity, experience, and ideas to every project.

My first website that got me started was a fan website for my favorite band, The Monkees. Over the years I’ve had the privilege to work with a wide range of clients from all different places. Municipal, musicians, non-profit, artists, digital content producers, businesses large and small. 

My hobbies include hiking, video games, and photography. I’m a past president and served four-years on the board of the Kankakee Area Jaycees. I’m a current member of Rotary 609 operating out of the greater Kankakee River valley area.

Frequently Asked

An ideal scenario will see your website completed in 4-6 weeks from the start date. The time it takes to complete the project can be impacted by the slow delivery of needed information or materials.  

No, be cautious of anyone who says they can. There are a lot of factors that play into decent website rankings. Abstractionz includes SEO with all website work, focusing on making sure search engines and social media can properly read and index your site. This is accomplished by following the industry’s best SEO practices.

Yes. Be sure to mention the need when requesting a quote!

Credit Cards, Paypal, and GooglePay. Checks will be accepted on a case by case basis. 

50% of the quoted cost must be made as a down payment before work will begin. The remaining balance must be made within 15 days of work being considered completed.

Third-party services that charge service fees are your responsibility and are not part of any service package provided by Abstractionz. This includes third party fees for hosting, domains, SSL, software, or services.

No, you don’t have to. The option is provided to help keep things quick and simple. Some people may find it confusing or complicated to pay out to the designer (Abstactionz) and then a hosting company. By integrating the hosting, domain, and SSL into your monthly maintenance package you get one bill and don’t have to worry about missing renewal dates. If you already have a domain, we can work with that and still host in house.

Your domain will belong to you and in the event you need it released, we’ll provide the needed information. No fooling around and no hidden costs.

Sure! Abstractionz works regularly with WordPress, one of the easiest platforms to use for self-maintaining a website once it’s up and running! We’ll even keep it backed up regularly so that if you make a mistake we can reset things back to before the big OOPS!

Don’t worry, we’ll also provide information on how to add and change the content. 

More or less we offer unlimited revisions. However, if it feels as though the offer is being abused, we do reserve the right to add a limit if things get out of hand.  Remember, a website is never truly finished. You’ll be making changes regularly, so if you’re nervous about finalizing something and remaining happy with it…trust us, you can change it later!

Music is just about always playing when I’m working. Generally, a mug of coffee is sitting on the desk that I do sip casually. But sometimes, if I’m working in the evening, I switch it up to hot tea and occasionally cocoa.
