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.
Small Business FocusBeautifully 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 NecessityEvery 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.
Logo DesignNot convinced you need a website, but you know you want some business cards or maybe need a logo? I can help with that too! Letterheads, cards, flyers, whatever you need by way of print can be done at an affordable price as well.

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 about me on 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!
FAQ’s and other need-to-knows…
If you have questions or concerns that I haven’t touched on here please contact me via the form at the bottom of this page.
What does a website cost?
Of course price varies based on every clients’ needs, but I can tell you my minimum charge is $450 and can go upwards of $1000 for online stores/e-commerce sites. My prices are honestly quite low compared to other freelancers and firms, I urge you to check around and find out for yourself.
If my minimum sounds too high for you PLEASE STILL CONTACT ME. I am very flexible, I offer payment plans, and I do pro-bono work on occasion for non-profits whose causes I believe in.
What forms of payment do you take?
I accept cash, checks, PayPal, Square, and Venmo.
The problem, my solution.
The reason I hear most from people in regards to why they don’t have a website for their business is cost. It’s now my goal to help small business owners and entrepreneurs like myself get a vital resource up and running for them, and the only way I can do that in a helpful way is by doing it for as low of a cost as I can while still providing for myself and my family. This does not mean that doing it cheaper than the ‘big guys’ will make it any less beautiful or of less quality. I truly enjoy making sleek and professional websites and will not produce anything I would not be proud of. Every single project matters a great deal to me and customer satisfaction is a top priority. My business is to some extent dependent on word of mouth and customer referrals so it would not serve me well to do poorly executed work.
Do I offer payment plans?
Yes, payment plans will be made on an individual basis. I’m interested in earning what I feel my services are worth, not in the maximum amount I can get out of you. I will be fair in my charges and will have contracts in place to ensure myself and my clients are happy with the value of my work.
Keepings costs down.
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. I have a good eye for design and typography and I have good taste, which is more important than you might think. I do not have the experience of a longtime developer or a designer with a firm may have. This is good for you because my being somewhat new to the business world is why I can’t charge $thousands$ of dollars, it wouldn’t be right, BUT with the experience I do have I can absolutely get you a sleek, well-functioning website with proper search engine optimization (SEO) so that your business can be on the same playing field with others in it’s category. That’s the first way I’m able to keep my costs down.
The second is by using a CMS (Content Management System) such as WordPress. This saves me time with writing some of the foundation code and that, in turn, saves you money. Every client’s needs are different so I won’t know whether I’ll be building your website from scratch myself or using a type of CMS, it will depend on what is best for you based on the features your website requires.
Thirdly, I’m a one-woman shop. I’m the only one you’ll be dealing with, I do all the sketches, photoshopping, designing, coding, everything it takes to get your project finished. 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 printing costs should your project require it.
What is included?
With any type of work I do, web or print, the attention to detail that any job should have will be provided. Spell-checking, proper grammar, appropriate usage of particular fonts or design elements — everything a good designer should deliver will be. Slang will not be used unless it’s appropriate to your business type, and I’m an excellent copywriter. Even though you will be required to supply me with information about your business I will make everything read in a professional manner.
Limits on you. Yes, you.
Since I charge lower than most designers or companies out there it means my work time needs to be kept to a minimum whenever possible. This means I cannot be doing revision after revision after revision. I’m confident in my ability to come up with something you like the first or second time around and flip-flopping or indecisiveness will hold up the job and cost you more money. Of course you know your business best and I depend on the information you give me, but a certain amount of trust in my skills will be necessary to get your work done in a timely manner.
How long will a website take to build?
What anyone would like to know, unfortunately there’s no one answer. Job time will depend on complexity of the work and what I may have on my plate at the time, but in general a basic website can take 2 to 3 weeks (e-commerce sites will take longer) and print work will vary. I will always get things done as quickly as possible without sacrificing quality.
About working remotely.
I’ve had clients who live out of town or for whatever reason prefer to do everything by email or phone. This is not an issue for me, however if it’s how you prefer to work with me I do ask that we have frequent communication as I cannot move forward with any major design decisions or changes without your approval.
About A Girl and Her Mac
I’m a web designer based in beautiful San Antonio, TX 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.
