I also have the resources, vision, and skill to design any small to medium web site with personality, integrity and style. Experience is key. I take the time to fully get to know your business, organization or non-profit and product to create an engaging, professional web site. All clients are educated with custom docs on managing, editing and adding content to their web site using easy-to-use Content Management Systems (CMS) such as WordPress and Joomla. Don’t overpay for a generic web site from a firm that doesn’t care about your success after barely getting the job done.
Ditch Stock Photography
Ditch stock photos and take or use some of your own photography. People want to connect with your business when visiting online, so it should organically feel like your business. Photography is the easiest way of accomplishing this, and it doesn’t always have to be professional. Some of my most successful websites have […]
The Arlington, Lexington, Belmont Democratic Regional Office needed an infographic designed which blends in a local image with Hillary Clinton’s design scheme and also has just enough info for social media. They’re having a grand opening in less than a week with Congresswoman Katherine Clark and it was important to get this out on the […]
This an amazing look into the behind the scenes of the “Pantsuit” user experience for HillaryClinton.com. I love the modular design and the changes they made for color-blind visitors. Check out the process below!
Design systems. Pattern libraries. Styleguides. Whatever you want to call them, they are very much in style right now.
A design system’s purpose […]
You don’t have to be a geek.
That’s my job. Many web developers claim to design a site that’s easy to maintain and use. I promise it.
Once the site is launched, you’ll be ready to blog or update your content, because I take the extra step and provide custom, step-by-step instructions how to use your site. I take pride in my work and my work isn’t great unless you succeed. I recently worked on a multi-site WordPress project for the Newtowne School in Cambridge, MA. Since their redesign into the WordPress system, the entire staff of teachers and administrators are blogging on their web site with ease and the parents are loving the weekly blogs. Their official Facebook page grew to 250 “Likes” in just 48 hours after custom social network curation. The Newtowne community is now thriving, thanks to a motivated director, a fantastic new web site and social media campaign.
Gone are the days of desktop-only web design. All of my designs are responsive and adapt to the browsing environment. Your web site will have the same experience across all current mobile devices, tablets, netbooks, and notebooks.
Are you? Understanding your target audience, your competitors, and industry trends are critical to creating effective and substantial web site. Let me take the confusion out of web design and social media marketing. I specialize in small to medium business web design and can get your web site and social accounts up and running quickly and on budget.
Using integrated software and curation, I will configure and design any social media account you need and connect it to your site. All clients will have a small base of followers and 50-75 local, hand-picked accounts to get you a solid start on Twitter and Facebook.
If you are looking for the cheapest web designer around, I’m not your best option. However, if you are looking for a fantastic web site at a very reasonable and competitive cost, you AREin the right place. There are a lot of decent web designers out there, but it’s up to you to decide if your business or project is worth investing in a local, reputable web designer who will give you professional results – the first time. I finish every single project, whether I start it or not, and it’s not done until you love it.
On average, a custom Web Design, WordPress or Joomla project ranges from $1500 to $4000 and takes between 2-4 weeks. Contact me for a personalized quote to get started!

Danielle has helped us to substantially grow our 26 year old company’s customer base since we hired her to design and develop our website over 10 years ago. We often get high compliments from potential clients regarding our outstanding website, which they assure us was the very reason they chose New Life Upholstery to meet their decorating needs.
She has a fabulous sense of design, and the business savvy to keep us at the cutting edge of advertising by advising and assisting us in changing with the times. We have the highest of regard for Danielle, and can recommend her and her company without reservation.
Steve & Sheila, New Life Upholstery
Danielle’s work has been an invaluable asset to our small non-profit school. Danielle recently rebuilt our school website, creating a home for our individual classroom blogs, and providing us with a very professionally designed tool to increase our outreach to families and other programs. Her dedication to meeting our timeline was exceptional and she worked tirelessly to troubleshoot many challenges in order to deliver us an excellent product.
Danielle’s commitment to this project was exceptional. She took time to define for us the many options available, which allowed us an opportunity to uniquely tailor our product. She has a keen eye for aesthetics, and a deep understanding of how best layout and design can enhance performance. She was incredibly mindful of creating a smooth transition from our old site to our new one.
Our new site, coupled with our new social media connections, has reached many families and early childcare professional across the country, and worldwide in a matter of months. This allows us to continue to strengthen our work as we are now able to build connections where we can inspire, and be inspired, by schools that share our common philosophy. Danielle took the time to deepen her understanding of our unique program to reflect the beauty of our work in her product. I would highly recommend Danielle to anyone looking for a fine tuned, highly professional and effective site for their business.

“I honestly can’t say enough – Danielle has literally helped to build my business over the last 5 years!”
– Sarah Haase, Shanti Bodywork Owner
Soon after opening my own practice (I am a massage therapist), I reached out to Danielle regarding a web presence for my business – which was one of the best business decisions I have ever made.
Danielle got to know me – and my fledgling business – and grasped very quickly the “vibe,” content, and features that I needed to stand out from my competition.
Her response to questions, changes and ideas is consistently timely and with great insight, and her ongoing site hosting is seamless. Her handling of those little bugs that pop up now and then in technology (no matter how silly from me, someone super tech-impaired ) are always handled with an urgency that only echoes her dedication and passion to her work — and clients! I have had many clients tell me that they chose me because I “had the best, most professional website on the North Shore” when compared to competition, and I’ve even had techie clients ask who does my SEO and website because they were so impressed with my ranking in Google!
We just went through a site redesign, and Danielle once again impressed me with just how much she has kept up with the trends in this space since the first site was built. I LOVE my new site…and so do my clients. I honestly can’t say enough – Danielle has literally helped to build my business over the last 5 years!
Thanks to your design we are ranked first in our market niche on all major search engines and we have had no down-time. We are grateful to you for making our entry from wholesaler to e-commerce retailer so easy and successful! I admire your patience and I appreciate all you have done for us.
You hit the redesign of Bags For Sports out of the park!
It really makes us look as good as the big swoosh! Nike will certainly be jealous. Thank you.

I can’t thank you enough for the wonderful redesign of Sassy Chicks Boutique! The process was simple and you were so easy to work with. Being a small e-commerce site pricing and budget was very important and your prices are very competitive.
Thank you for taking the time to make sure the layout and colors were exactly what I wanted and for taking care of the thousands of little details that go into making a site live. You made the process seem effortless. I’m so excited about the new design and am looking forward to growing the business. I’ve already received numerous compliments on the new site from both friends and vendors. Thank you!
Stephanie, Sassy Chicks Boutique
