Web Design

Your website should reflect your individuality without emptying your bank account. All my designs are custom, not cookie-cutter.

Social Media

I can make graphics for all of the social media platforms you participate in, and/or help you come up with a strategy for promoting your business online.

Print Design

Business cards, brochures, postcards and other printed marketing materials. Custom designed to promote your business.

Logos, Branding and more . . .

A custom logo should reflect your company’s identity. Put it on your business card, a t-shirt, a hat, a tote bag , a banner or your store sign.


Website Concierge Service

Hire me to maintain your website: to make changes as needed and keep the software securely up-to-date. Choose a monthly fee or pay by the hour, whichever suits your needs and budget.

Available for websites I have created or any existing WordPress site.

What my clients are saying

We hired Melissa to update/develop our existing website and make it fresh and informational. Melissa was wonderful to work with. She listened to what we wanted and provided us with professional guidance and direction when needed. If she did not know how to do something she sought out the answers and always followed through. Throughout every step of the process she guided and directed us, taking what we imagined our website to be and made it a reality. Her professionalism, knowledge, expertise and customer service is excellent. I would encourage anyone who wants to either update or create a personal or business web site to speak with Melissa. She is awesome.

I’m a penny-pincher, by nature and often by necessity. Whether you need my services as a freelance web designer, or one of my other services, I know the least expensive way to do it. If you want quality marketing without breaking the bank, I’m your gal.


Web design firms often fall into two categories: either they do custom work but charge a pretty penny for the privilege, or they charge less but they use templates that mean your website will look similar to that of their last customer. Your marketing materials should reflect your identity or that of your company, and it should appeal to your customers. As a freelance web designer, I will work with you to create marketing products that are customized to you and is attractive to your customers.
