handcrafting heartfelt

web designs & branding

for female creatives since 2008

YOUR WEBSITE IS NOT JUST A WEBSITE.
IT’S YOU. THE REAL YOU – YOUR HOME ONLINE.

And the real you is a dreamer and a doer.
You’re passionate, fiercely feminine and led by your heart.

Finding the right web designer —
one who ’gets’ your brand, your message and your values —
is all you need to launch your business.

.01

beautiful web design

You’re online presence is so important, and it’s time to make a lasting impression. I create custom designs for female creatives that reflect who they are in passion, in vision, and in style. Let’s show the world who you are.

.02

Memorable Branding

Having a brand that is in alignment with who you are will give you the confidence to make your dreams happen. I handcraft each branding element to reflect your style and establish a consistent look and feel for your business or blog.

“My potential blog followers are floored and blown over when I hand them a professionally done card created by Heather. Heather nailed my logo by just me answering a few questions. Beautiful is the resounding response I have received when people have checked out my blog. I feel so confident to show my work as a recipe developer and kitchen mentor with the platform that Heather created. Having Heather as part of my dream team is priceless. I am beaming!!!”

“My time collaborating with Heather on Nutritiously Mari was of unparalleled excellence. I knew very little of how I wanted my website to look, and the vision I had for it was unclear. From briefly talking with me, Heather was able to determine exactly what I was looking for, and create a unique, clean, and beautiful design that perfectly represents the purpose of Nutritiously Mari. Heather is quick to respond to any questions or concerns, happy to revise the design until you are 100% satisfied with it, and certain to deliver quality results with care and excellence. From day one Heather showed skill, talent, and love in what she does, and clearly takes pride and joy in helping females achieve their dream website. The results of our project has far exceeded my expectations!"

After explaining what I had in mind, Heather created a gorgeous design that perfectly fit my vision: something chic, feminine, and classy.
