Let's goSee our full services list


Whether you need a complete website from scratch, or simply want to refresh or update what you have, we offer a variety of service options.

We have extensive experience creating WordPress, theme-based websites that won’t crash with every new update. However, many business websites can be built much more simply on Squarespace or Wix (platforms that handle all those updates for you).

If your website is a digital business card or a place for folks to “check you out” after they’ve met you or received your proposal, I can make what you need. If your site serves as your 24/7 home on the internet, to attract your ideal clients and get them engaged with your products or services, let’s chat!

If you need e-commerce or custom coding (most business owners we meet don’t), we are not the right fit.

I promise to help you find the right solution and understand what you are getting, even if you ultimately don’t decide to work with us. Seriously, if another designer or agency gives you a proposal that you can’t understand, we will help you read through it to make sure you know what you’re buying.

Established businesses

We have helped businesses on WordPress upgrade, edit, maintain and change their WordPress themes or plugins. We also help clients who need someone to build landing pages, make program or service page updates and create new graphics for their websites.

Owners and marketing managers with Squarespace websites have reached out for help. We have designed new pages, added new staff, created product pages and refreshed the home page.

Small business clients of ours have come for support in revising, redesigning, evolving or completely changing the look of their websites. They still have the freedom to make edits on their own, but they want a professional design aesthetic that’s a level up from their first DIY website.

WordPress website update for a digital wallcoverings company. In collaboration with the VP of Brand, we refreshed the design, and simplified the site customizations so that custom code was no longer used throughout the site. This will allow the internal design team to self-edit and self-manage the website.
