Sharon Reaves – Web Developer

I design beautiful and responsive websites for Authors, Writers and Bloggers to highlight their latest and greatest work.

Overview

I am a self-taught, Front-End Web Designer specializing in WordPress/Elementor, Squarespace and Wix. Over the past 13 years, I have had the privilege of working with writers from various fiction and non-fiction genres. I can take your project from concept to completion. I also offer re-design for existing websites that might need a refresh to improve look and feel as well as content organization and UX.


My design approach is proactive and client driven. My goal to deliver websites that enhance your message and generate maximum engagement. I consider each project a collaboration and I rely on client feedback and regular communication. My job is not finished until your vision is realized.

CLIENT REVIEWS


“Sharon is a phenomenal designer. She listens, gets to know your company, and thinks about how to translate your needs into a stunning, intuitive, and user-friendly website. She’s flexible, timely, and a pleasure to work with. When I need her help - whether explaining technical issues, advice about content, or problem-solving - she is always at the ready. It is rare to find a designer like Sharon who knows how to visually and operationally translate content and business objectives into practice. I will only use her for my web needs - she’s that good!”

“Sharon Reaves has a keen eye, a strong sense of design, is a great listener, and has a vast knowledge of website building. These are the skills I was looking for in a web designer. She was eager to answer any questions I had and very helpful in explaining what I needed to know for my site, and made my participation very easy and approachable. I recommend her highly!”
