Stories

I have compiled a list of clients (just a few here now to start) and presented them as little vignettes. I hope they give you a good sense of who I work with, what we accomplish, and then in the client's own words - what it is like to do this work. You can click on the website images to visit the actual client site.

website and identity redesign
for established therapist

Robyn has a thriving counseling and coaching practice. In late 2016 she began to realize her old website hadn't kept pace with how she and her business had evolved. 

It is very common for new clients to find Robyn on Psychology Today and then use the link to her website to learn more about her. Therefore, it is important for her to keep her website aligned and expressing the truth of who she is in her work today.

She came to me wanting to overhaul her site design as well as her logo and wordmark.

The words that were framing the redesign were Bold and Playful, but we needed to make sure we also didn't go too far. If you met Robyn you would see there is also a Softness in her and so we were looking for a balance.

 

the client experience

I felt seen and heard and finally — and most important to me — excited to suggest that potential clients go to the site to get to know me before making a decision about a first appointment.

Kim does that—transforms what she sees and hears into something that somehow reminds me of who I am yet stretches me beyond where I was.

Website for local CPR trainer

Meet Lori and she will tell you "I love teaching people how to save lives!" And she really means it! 

Lori is a natural-born saleswoman, managing to book in classes by just starting to talk about what she does. But she needed more classes and a better understanding of her target market. 

Lori had her owl and heart artwork already done when I met her. So we focused on discovering her target market and then messaging that fit for that audience. And, we built the website and connected it to Google My Business (a must for any local service business). Happy to report she now regularly gets calls from folks who have found her website. 

Lori LOVES the new site and it really does fit for her. Pink and brown is not a combo everyone could pull off, but believe me if you met Lori you would know instantly why this does!

 

the client experience

Kim helped me to clarify who my customer is and to build a plan to target to those customers.

She is easy to work with, smart, and understands what I need. She is always ready and willing to go above and beyond to help.

I now regularly get calls from people who have found me through my website!!

Kim is such a pleasure to work with. She is truly gifted!
