Does your website inspire you with the thrill of possibility?

Or does it make you feel sad and small?


You should never be made to feel sad and small. Your website should feel even more expansive than the biggest dream you hold for yourself. Your website should make you want to be the very best version of yourself that you can be. Every single time you look at it, you should literally marvel at how great it is – and how great you are.

 

Design-snobbery is not as shallow as it sounds. The design snob understands implicitly that a well made and thoughtfully designed product makes your life better. Why have a crappy thing when theres a good alternative? Put simply, design matters.

 

If your website is so far from your dream of what it should be that it is an embarrassment to you, it is holding you back and stopping you from being all you can be, online. That disconnect is also a turn off to a proportion of your audience. Some people who need to hear from you might never ever read your words because your logo and color scheme make them throw up in their mouth a little (harsh but fair).

 

I create crisp, minimal websites for a select few clients EACH MONTH, using either Wordpress or SquareSpace. 


I believe that the web design process should be easy, respectful, drama-free and even fun. It is a collaborative process between you + me; a process that should feel inspiring, expansive and open.

 


IF YOU LIKE MY APPROACH, LET's WORK TOGETHER.

PORTFOLIO


The sites below represent a handful of the many, many websites which I have built for clients. I work with artists, writers, bloggers, coaches, community builders, store owners and service providers. I work with people who have an idea in their head which they need to get out into the world, via a website which makes them feel freaking awesome about themselves and how they choose to spend their time.

Sites include full rebrands, e-commerce integration, portfolios and membership options. Click on the navigation arrows, or click on the the thumbnail images to view the portfolio.

 

TESTIMONIALS


 
I waited over a year to get a website, and the process was actually educational and stress-free. Helen’s creative input was spot-on. I am super happy with the end result. A big thank you for putting me on the map and helping me all along the way. Thank you also for your patience as I figured out what I wanted and for your creativity in shaping the content and “feel” of the site.
— Sara Rothholz, Architect
 
My old website was was outdated in it’s functionality and design and was not an accurate representation of me or the work I do. It didn’t convey the feeling I want my clients to have when they work with me. Working with Helen was very casual and easy, but professional at the same time. I feel like she really got to me know and I got to know her and that we now have a great peer relationship. It was far easier and more enjoyable than any other web design experience I’ve had and the end result was spectacular. I LOVE my new website, and my clients do too! Helen is very update with what works and what doesn’t in terms of design and functionality and her artistic ability shines through with a crisp. clean visual presentation that doesn’t override your message, instead it amplifies it. She’s also able to guide you to find your own voice while at the same time give solid guidance on what the options are creatively to allow that to come through.
— Siobhan McAuley, Stirring The Soul
 
I’ve never been happier to pay an invoice. Your design sensibilities, professionalism, and responsiveness are unparalleled.

Working with Helen was wonderful. She is kind, helpful, knowledgeable and made some good suggestions to help guide me through the process of creating my new website. When changes or issues came up, she was quick to make updates and I truly felt that we were working together as a team. I love my website. It is beautiful, simple and functions properly. Just what I was hoping to achieve.
— Jane Beal, Good Life Transformations
 
Working with Helen made building my website fun. She knew all the right questions to ask, which means my site has the added functionality I didn’t even know I needed. Her design eye keeps it looking professional, and her kindness when answering my silly questions was very appreciated. She is also a great small business mentor. I highly recommend her!
— Mari, Smallful
 
All I can say is THANK YOU Helen. My site was a disaster, even after 3 different designers. The last one took forever to complete and they just couldn’t ‘get me’ they didn’t understand my feel personally, or my biz. I was so over it by then that I jut let them do whatever... ‘a site’ is better than none right? Helen absolutely captured what I wanted to convey. Its so pretty. Fun and me! It makes me want to share my site everywhere and as a result I’ve gotten a TON more traffic and clients. She went above and beyond for me & doesn’t just close the door on you afterwards either. LOVE! Thanks again for stopping the ugly train on my branding

THE QUICK LAUNCH - $2400

WE RUN THE BRILLIANCE INTENSIVE TO A SCHEDULE, WITH TWO WEEKS OF PRE-FLIGHT PREPARATION, FOUR WEEKS OF INTENSE CREATION, AND TWO WEEKS OF WRAP-UP WORK:

PRE FLIGHT WORK
We meet for a Skype session to discuss your wants and needs and wildest dreams for your branding and website. I send you a questionnaire to complete, and set you up with a private Pinterest board where we can share information and inspiration. The whole project can be viewed on our shared Asana board – a virtual notice board where we can both add information.

WEEK 1
Will be researching and exploring your brand ID – your look, feel, vibe, message and audience connection to come up with the colors, fonts, logos and images to use on your site. I will present you with a number of design options that we will review and refine and rework through the week until you are completely in love.

WEEK 2
We will be working together to optimize your content, truly designing the actual experience to be taken by your website visitors. We’ll look at the paths they will take to learn about you and your work, and we will study each and every option to make sure that you are communicating exactly what you want to convey through copy and imagery and layout.

WEEK 3
We will consider your website as an art gallery, with you and your work as the artwork to be showcased. I will start the website construction process, building great, spacious virtual rooms to let you and your venture really be the star.

WEEK 4
We will be looking in closer detail at packaging you and your services. We will dig into your offers and services and freebies and make sure that everything you put out into the world has a consistency and attention to detail across the board. We will talk about your needs for social media, and create headers and graphics and templates for all your accounts.

2 WEEK WRAP UP
At the end of the month, the immersion process will come to an end. Over the next two weeks I provide you with images and templates to use for your future offerings, and put together a brand style guide so you will be able to work with anyone or DIY your own graphics in the future. This will also be the time where we can make any adjustments and refinements to your site. We will remain in regular contact and make sure that everything is exactly as awesome as you expect!


As I only work with one person at a time for the VIP Experience, there is usually a waiting list. Send me a message via the contact form and I will let you know the next available timeframe. We can also set up a time for a 30 minute coffee date via phone or Skype to see if this is right for you...
