I'm delighted to be able to share my favorite creations with you! Below are some of the blogs, sites, and sales pages I've done recently that I'm most proud of.
Catrice styles events, and it was imperative that her website be refined and include the special touches that she includes in the events she does. We incorporated rich textures and sophisticated details to reflect her passion for her business and the parties she designs.
Kim is coaching performers and media professionals, and she is a vibrant, dynamic personality herself, so her site had to sparkle.
Bevin says, "I really like how clean and clear [my new website] is, and I think it represents me!" She is a Kitchen Coach and is passionate about helping people learn about clean eating and real food. I was always hungry when I was working on her site, though!
Ann-Marie works primarily with Sales Managers but she didn't want the typical "sales-oriented" site with in-your-face colors and graphics. We worked to create a sense of exuberance and confidence for her clients, focused more on growth and expansion than on the same old hard-sell tactics.
Hellen is a TV personality with a huge following from her show. She needed a website that was crisp, organized, and beautiful - a reflection of what she teaches others about.
Rhonda Hess is one of the premier coaches in the industry. Her business is focused on helping other coaches be successful not just at coaching but in their coaching businesses. Her Prosperous Coach Blog is all about giving people the guidance they need to grow their coaching practice, so clean and professional were important while still reflecting Rhonda's personal style (the autumn colors are her favorites).
Barb is one of the best career coaches out there, and she has been one of my long time clients. Her site has been through several iterations over the years, but through each rendition where we were expanding the site's functionality to match her expanding business, we always held true to the spirit of an elegant design that she started out with and loved.
Joline is a serious proponent of the Raw Food movement having experienced its profound effects herself, and her site needed to reflect the nature of the healthy living ideals she is so passionate about.
Alas, the Washington Swing Dance Committee has disbanded, but once upon a time, I got to make a fun and lively website for them to organize and promote their dances and bring people who were passionate about swing dance together in the Washington DC area.
Ann is a master at helping people identify and realize their soul purpose by helping them find clarity and focus. We brought that to life with a soothing sage palette, splashes of vibrant color, and a crisp design.
Jennifer was a dynamic Business and Marketing Coach, and she wanted a sharp, clean design with pop to represent her business and how much fun she had doing it. Jennifer has moved onto other endeavors, so her site no longer lives out in the ether, but it was a site I was proud to have created with her.
Marcy is an amazing lawyer doing amazing things in the highly contentious field of divorce and family law. We worked hard to balance calm and soothing with crisp and professional to really reflect what Marcy is trying to achieve in bringing the concept of a Graceful Divorce to the world.
Nichole (that's me) & Les Betterley
So confession time...Mindful Mornings used to be my company. For about 3 or 4 years, my husband and I made Gourmet Oatmeal and sold it at farmers markets, craft fairs and on the internet. The company doesn't exist any more, but the site I created for it made me realize I wanted to make websites (instead of oatmeal) for a living. It was one of my first sites and to this day is still one of my favorites.
I brought all of these beauties to life, but credit for the original designs belongs to other talented folks.
I create custom blogs on the Wordpress platform ("self-hosted" meaning it's hosted on your own domain and not Wordpress.com if that means anything or makes a difference to you). I've done a lot of research and have amassed a decent amount of experience about what's effective on a blog and what's not, and so most of my projects include the following so you can be successful in your own blogging endeavors...
