In December of 2010, Wix.com hosted the “Wix Holiday Wishes Giveaway”, a contest that awarded 5 lucky winners the chance to win a free and professionally-designed website from a Wix Pro. Using our social media channels, contestants were asked to answer one simple question: What’s Your Holiday Wish?
This is the story of one winner, Glen Eric Huysamer, and his Wix Pro of choice, Loai Bassam.

Enter Wix Pro Designer Loai Bassam:
For this redesign, Glen was looking for a more professional and organized look. He was worried that his old site would actually hinder the success of his company as it was very cluttered. Glen wanted something sleek, honest, and to the point. He also wanted to link in his various other projects and personal blog.
Loai understood this vision. He decided that a complete redesign was the way to go. The goal was to create an eye catching website that would be easy to browse for any user.
At Glen’s convenience, Loai and Glen conversed several times per week by Skype and Facebook in order to discuss the layout and style of the site. Loai likes for his clients to see every step of the process so that after the project is complete, they can make edits by themselves.
To Glen, this process was ideal. “It was fantastic to be able to talk to somebody on the other side of the world and create something together in real time,” Glen told us, “and it was a real eye opener for me who is (or was) a novice in training.”
Once Glen’s site was complete, Loai transferred it to Glen’s Wix account and Glen was able to upgrade the site on his own.
