about dma charleston
21 years in the print + web design industry
DMA (Dragonfly Media Arts) — began offering print design services in August 1999 in the Clearwater/Tampa market, and exclusively served a number of award-winning regional homebuilders until October 2008. Like many in the homebuilding industry that year, I was forced to expand my company’s capabilities and diversify my client base. Shortly thereafter, I decided to relocate my office to Charleston, South Carolina, my home town.
Development and design of digital media was added in 2001, along with my ever-expanding client base that now includes food + nutrition manufacturers, real estate developers + commercial brokers, religious + community organizations, musicians/artists, restaurants, and more.
Consultations are always free.

MY NEW POLICY ON SOCIAL MEDIA
Social media has taken a significantly negative turn, and after many hours of prayer and thoughtful consideration, I have decided that DMA will no longer support/manage Facebook or Twitter. I believe both social platforms allow and encourage the suppression and manipulation of information that directly results in the deception of its users for the purposes of their own economic gain and political agendas.
WHAT I WILL DO
I will link your web site to your accounts if you intend to use these platforms, but I will not engage any further in the development or management of your Facebook or Twitter pages. I will continue to support Instagram for the time being.
Thank you for your consideration and understanding regarding this critical assault on our Freedom of Speech. If you and/or your company have been ‘canceled’ as a result of your free thought and free speech, and you are in need of creative services, I welcome your business.
*DMA designs, develops, and customizes exclusively in the Word Press platform. We provide secure hosting and plugin management for our hosted web sites beginning at $19.99 per month.
**Yoast SEO Plugin installation and initial optimization is provided with every site we develop. Yoast offers a Pro version for an annual fee. DMA is not a marketing company and recommends acquiring a third-party expert for any additional SEO/Google services pertaining to your industry; however, I am pleased to provide creative content for those services.
