Overview

YOUR BRAND = MARKETNG + DESIGN. You can have strong marketing efforts, but without intentional design, you won't be an identity people can relate to. And if you have that identity defined, but don't market yourself, no one will know about you.

I've transformed the impact many different types of companies have had using intentional marketing and design. From working with Whole Foods Market in Chicago to an Italian Culinary Company in Tuscany, Italy - marketing and design have foundational elements that can be applied to any type of company, but your story and mission are what make it unique, stand out and have an impact.

My web design services include a strategy session for art direction; I develop 3 design concepts for you to choose from and build the content off of. We work together to ensure the final design is functional, user-friendly, tells your story and gains leads. I'm always available for updates and questions along and after the process. I've always said that a website is like your storefront online - there are a lot of necessary details to put in place for it to be successful, but its worth the intentional work!

All my websites are:
- Responsive
- Mobile-friendly
- Search Engine Optimized
- Designed for Lead Generation

For basic websites, the process from start to completion typically takes 2 months. We develop the brand strategy, collect marketing content, critique the design, and then there are technical web development things that need to be implemented on my part to ensure your website is searchable on the internet.

Let me take your concept and make it marketable, profitable, and impactful as you take your journey to your destiny!
