A passion for design

With more than 16 years in the newspaper business as visual journalist, I can design and edit across all platforms. I have designed everything from simple pie charts to the graphics for a smartphone app. If you are looking for help with your small business site or just want to start a blog, I can consult or do the whole job. Give me a call now to discuss your project.

Advanced Web Design

I design using the latest technology. Responsive design takes a little longer to code, but it basically means the design will adapt to whatever size device is displaying the website.

Elegant Design

Elegant Design

Since I got my start in traditional print design, I can design anything you might need to supplement your website: logos, newsletters, icons, letterhead, business cards, etc.

Development

I am the rare designer who knows how to both design and develop. I have learned coding to be able to design in a more precise way on the web. So not only do I know what looks good, I know how to make a site work well also.

Multimedia

I have experience with photography, photo editing, video editing, multimedia, audio and graphics. Anything you might need for your website is available in one place.

Maria handled the transformation of my website from phpBB to WordPress with efficiency. She remains helpful as problems crop up and advice is needed. I would use her services again in a heartbeat.
