Why Choose Sparks Arts?

With all the competition out there, what makes us so special? Here are 9 reasons you should work with us!


Dedicated to your Success

We’re in this for the long-term. We know your success insures our success. Collaborating to help achieve your goals guarantees you’ll want to keep working with us and send us referrals. Many of our clients have stayed with us for years. We’d like nothing better than to keep that mutually-beneficial relationship for many years to come. And that only happens when we provide quality service you can depend on.


Creative, Goal Driven Solutions

I don’t just build pretty websites. Lots of people can do that. I develop online solutions to achieve your goals. Functional, goal-oriented, user-friendly online experience that will guide your visitors where you want them to go - drive traffic, brand identity, conversions, generate leads, increase sales, or whatever you’re targeting. Your website can be a powerful tool in your marketing strategy that will help grow your business.


We’re Listening

Collaboration is key. That means we have to work together. We ask many questions at the beginning so we fully understand your business, your target customers, and what you’re trying to achieve. We can’t provide the best solutions without this knowledge. So, please, be prepared to talk. We’re listening.



Our 10 Step Development Process insures your project proceeds smoothly to completion and achieves your goals.


Easy-to-Manage Websites

Your website needs to be like your business, scalable and easy to manage. That’s why we build websites with a browser-based content management system that enables you to easily log in and add or edit your website content: articles, blog posts, images, videos, products, galleries - you name it. And we provide the basic training you need to quickly get up to speed. Of course, if you’d rather just do what you do best and prefer not to spend your time on website updates, I am happy to do it for you! The choice is yours.


On-Going Support

Building and launching your website is just the first step. We’re here to provide the on-going support you need to continue your momentum and adapt to the constantly-evolving online experience.

I have specialized in website development and design since 2000, and since 2006 I’ve worked extensively with the Joomla! content management system. I was one of the first 10 people in the United States to become a Certified Joomla! 3.x Administrator shortly after the certification exam was developed in 2016. Sparks Arts has also been a Registered Joomla! Service Provider since 2014.

My formal education includes a Bachelor’s degree in Mass Media and a Certificate in Computer Graphics. To keep up with this constantly evolving industry, I routinely keep up to date with the latest trends, and attend professional conferences.

My wife, Christine, specializes in graphic design, which covers a wide range of services such as logo design, layout and design of professional marketing flyers, brochures and catalogs, online graphics and print advertisements, book covers, signs, newsletters, business cards, infographics, annual reports and vision documents.

Christine has degrees in Art History and Digital Art. She worked for several professional design agencies before we started Sparks Arts.

I always joke that she makes it look good, and I make it work! Together we provide a full service solution for your business promotion and marketing needs - both online and offline.


I My Work

That’s right. I love it. There’s nothing better than working on a project with a great client. It’s fun! When you can tear me away from my computer, I’m still reading or thinking about how to improve design, conversions, call to actions, etc. I’ll bring that dedication to your project.

Let’s have some fun! I’d love the opportunity to discuss your goals and how we can help you succeed.

What Our Clients Say –

Richard has been our webmaster for almost one year and I could not be more pleased with his service. He is timely, offers helpful feedback and instruction. He has done a fabulous job with us for the SITE SoCal Chapter on which I service as Vice President of Communications. I highly recommend his services.
