A web designer from Fairfield recently launched a home-based online business that alters websites for small businesses so that they are appropriately sized for the screens of smartphones.
Tim Meehan, a website developer for the past 10 years, has created a new website, www.mowmywebsite.com, to market the venture. The alumnus of Fairfield's Notre Dame High School said he is able to "m.o.w." a website -- an acronym he came up with for "mobile optimized website" -- by using a "touch optimized framework for developing the source code" in combination with his graphic design skills. He said the two main tools he uses to create the scaled-down sites are Adobe Dreamweaver for development and Adobe Photoshop for designing the graphics.
