hey!

I'm Krystal, and I make small businesses look great online.

So, how do I make small businesses look great online?

I work side by side as a strategic partner with small businesses of all kinds designing, coding, illustrating, organizing and planning in order to build them a beautiful and functional website that fits their brand and will bring them new clients.

There are times when my clients need a little more than a website alone to look their best online. For example, maybe they’re starting a new business and need a logo or maybe they need a series of posts designed for their Instagram feed. This means that I often get to use my graphic design, brand design and illustration skills in addition to my website design and development expertise to help them accomplish their goals. Even though I focus on making great websites, I love this multi-disciplinary approach and welcome the opportunity to use my other design skills as well.

I value close relationships with my clients and pride myself in understanding and empathizing with the unique needs of each business I serve. I consider it my privilege to work with these businesses as they build, launch, grow and maintain their online presence and I’d love to have the opportunity to work with you to get your business looking great online as well.

Here’s How I Can Help Your Business Look Great Online Today

learn a little more about the services I offer

Web Design

I design clean, easy to navigate sites from the concise single page website to full on e-commerce sites. Most of the time I create these websites using the popular WordPress platform but, for smaller projects that won’t need updating very often, I will sometimes hand code from scratch. I also have a growing selection of ready-to-go website templates designed that I can customize with your content.

If you’re the do it yourself type, I offer a WordPress setup service where I get everything ready to go and then hand over the keys for you to finish it. You just add your content – no coding required!

Graphic Design

I can create both digital and print assets that make your business more attractive to clients such as packaging, signage, ads, promotional merchandise, graphics, flyers, and just about anything else that you dream up!

To keep your business running smoothly on the back end, I can also design custom business forms, editable templates, PDF welcome packages, opt-in freebies, wholesale line sheets, fillable PDFs and more.

Branding

Using my unique brand discovery process that has been perfected over the years to guide us I will start from wherever you are at right now, whether you’re at square one or already have an established business and brand, and work together with you to either build your new brand or give your current brand a makeover.

If you’re not quite ready for a full brand design project, that’s ok too! I can help you create a logo for your business and you can build your brand little by little as you go.

Digital Illustration

Whether it’s a cartoon version of yourself, a mascot for your group or business, images to accompany your blog/social media posts, custom holiday or thank you cards for your clients or artwork for the walls of your home or business, I’d love to draw it!

My natural style is whimsical, colorful and cartoony like the art you see here on my website.

Are You A DIY-er At Heart?

When you’re working on your own designs but you’re not a designer, there are often times when you get stuck and could use a little design or website advice to get you going again. I am available for phone and/or online chat consultations to help you work through any issues you run into and put you back on the right track.

If a consult isn’t enough to get you going again or you need more help, I am also available for quick fixes (small jobs that can be completed in 20 minutes or less) and can do the thing you’re stuck on for you.

Krystal was tremendous at taking my ideas and bringing them to life…

Starting a new business is a scary and overwhelming undertaking. I knew I wanted beautiful branding, but didn’t know where to start. Krystal held my hand through every step of the process. Krystal was tremendous at taking my ideas and bringing them to life in a very beautiful and professionally polished website! Krystal was so fast at responding to my inquires and was wonderful at talking me through decisions. She was honest with me and let me know if I was going off track with where she knew I wanted to be. It was a fabulous process about which I cannot say enough good things. I can’t wait until I have an opportunity to use her services again.

Let’s Level Up Your Online Presence!

Looking amazing online means better business and you could be losing customers or missing out on sales if you don’t have your act together.

Every business needs to consistently onboard new clients or make sales but this is critically important to small businesses. A great website design is a tool to help your business make more money and, as consumers are becoming more design savvy and spending more time online, it matters today more than ever. If you get it right, your business will look more professional and you will position yourself as a leader among your competition. This makes people want to work with you and buy your products or services. If you get it wrong, well, it has the opposite effect and no one wants that (except maybe your competition!).

Don’t risk losing clients because of a poorly designed website (or worse, no website at all!). Let’s talk today about your website goals and and how we can work together to make your business look great online.
