no problem. The gig is good. It's a challenge since I hadn't done any work as part of a team, so learning git and all that has been a new experience for me. Also using more advanced features of C# like interfaces, unit testing, and things like that has been a learning experience as well. I'm very happy about it. It's a challenge that I wanted, and I have already learned a ton. ______________________________ http://i.imgur.com/v2ye7l2.jpg

You're right about the term 'web design' being a generic label.
I thought to maybe use 'Digital Design' or 'Front End Development' or 'Web Design & Development' but my sense is that small businesses wouldn't understand what Front End Development is.
Digital Design might mean graphic design or logo design and I don't feel confident in my skills (really my education) to pull either off.
And while WordPress theme development is something I'd like to include in my list of services, my experience is limited so it wouldn't be fair to list Web Development.
I've worked doing PHP development or Joomla theme development but that was years ago and my skills aren't strong enough to feel comfortable charging someone for development work.
Using a more contemporary or clever descriptor might help with the level of competency my brand suggests, but my guess is that most small business owners or entrepreneurs aren't sophisticated with their tech knowledge, especially the development of websites. So, I agree that using Web Design isn't very imaginative but does get the point across.
But to answer your question about my specialties, my strengths, in order, are HTML and CSS, web interface design, JS, jQuery and CMS theme development.

The logo is pretty much telling you everything
The two places people are gonna see it is your site and if you hand out business cards, both instances theyre gonna know from the site or you telling them in person respectively . Google should index whatever is in your bio and metadata anyway which will include that so if they come through google, they'll see it.
"Web design" or any label is just one extra unnecessary element and looks a little amateurish. Not that youre an amateur, it just reads as atiquated. Nobody really does that anymore since its unnecessary. You can put that on the site elsewhere or on the back of the card as more of a description of services rendered, but i don't think it belongs in the logo.
