Get Online—The Right Way
Wading into a new website or improvements of an existing site can be a daunting task, but professional design, strategy and advice can make all the difference. Our company works a bit differently--we go beyond design to make sure that your design meets your goals in a purposeful, strategic manner. We prioritize understanding where you want to be, your industry or niche, and creating an infrastructure that will serve you long-term. Additionally, we assemble a team of fabulous collaborators who also work on your project, so, if your vision for your website includes branding, copywriting, strategy, business systems consulting and more, we've got your back.
Don't know what you need? That's okay! Get in touch and we'll talk about your business, goals and the best options for meeting your needs. Another option is to simply schedule a one-hour consultation--you can get some good advice without any commitment beyond the hour.
We offer a variety of web design and development services, primarily on the Squarespace platform, but also on Shopify as well (see my e-commerce services for more) and the occasional Wordpress project.

Squarespace/Large Site Re/Design
Ready to launch a new Squarespace website that's uniquely yours but harnesses Squarespace's ease-of-use?
We will handcraft a beautiful Squarespace website that's future-friendly and a pleasure to manage. With this approach, your site's potential is vast, as extensive custom coding can be implemented. This is the closest service to the traditional website design process we offer, and we have the option to work within Squarespace's developer platform, if appropriate.
These clients often take advantage of the opportunity to wrap graphic/logo design, copywriting and other services with my top-notch partners into their projects. Typically, established business and larger organizations use this option, as it's more time consuming and a more substantial investment than the other web design services available to you.
Hybrid Squarespace Site
This is our most popular service for individuals and small businesses, as they're feature-filled business websites you can grow with.
For "hybrid" design projects, we select the perfect template that meets your needs and build a custom website that works within that template's framework, using Squarespace's blocks in creative ways. We skip some of the more rigorous planning processes of a full-scale site re/design and we create a single initial design concept and revise from that point. This include all basic search engine optimization.
You can opt to add e-commerce, a logo, copywriting, hand lettering and other services for additional fees.
This is a fabulous value, and depending on the features you want on your new website, as well as your budget, we can create a very distinctive design with a useful integration or two.
Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
Want to approach your SEO with a content-first eye? Then let's talk.
Unlike SEO-focused companies, which often create short-lived results, I take a content-first approach to SEO. We conduct keyword research, implement site best practices and provide you advice--and if you choose--implementation of content modifications that will improve your findability online. I typically recommend starting with keyword research (which includes a complementary list of suggested keyword-rich blog post topics), and working from that point forward.
Some clients may be interested in ongoing SEO services, which serve to build and revise your site's content in an SEO-rich manner. This type of arrangement is available to clients who commit to 4 -6 month process and I currently only have limited additional openings for this sort of work.
Website Review & Audit
Get a second set of eyes on your website!
For clients with an already-live site, or a site that you're about ready to take live, I can review or deeply audit your website and provide you with an thorough analysis of your site's functionality, user-friendliness and design. In addition to the written narrative, I will meet with you (in-person or via phone/Skype) and walk you through the site and help prioritize site improvements and recommendations.
