Web Design

SquareSpace is a great platform for stylish, easy-to-update websites, but without customization, they all end up looking the same.
I love creating beautiful customized SquareSpace websites for clients who want a unique look tailored to their needs.

I was my first client when I designed and customized the online portfolio you are looking at now.

 

Bonnie came to me with a website that was created in the 1990s. With a new book coming out, she needed a total overhaul–and a site that worked perfectly on mobile devices. We created a site that beautifully featured her new book on the home page. See More

 

After Bonnie’s new book had been out for a year, she asked for a redesign that focused on her rather than that specific book. The site now offers a friendly first-person introduction to her larger body of work while still highlighting the book lower on the home page. See More

 

Melissa needed a website that was simple but didn't feel corporate. She began the process on her own and I helped her customize it. We both loved her drawn portrait and featured it on the home page. Yeah, we don’t love the four icons. They still need to be updated. See More

 

I learned to customize Squarespace sites through my business website. It features my feature my film, writing and multimedia work. My favorite part is the winking GIF on the home page. You'll need to click through to see it. See More

 

This documentary website supports a deep and information-rich structure. It's a huge site that had to be easy to use and inviting, get people to the film, and also fulfill a lot of publicity and educational outreach needs. See More

 
 

Custom (non-Squarespace) sites I've designed, working with a developer

The V-Card Diaries is an interactive story-sharing website with a cool dynamic interface. It was originally created at a Hackathon and then updated the following year. Note: Since the site is about virginity and sexuality, it may not be suitable for some workplaces. You can learn more about this project here.

The Hartley Film Foundation supports and distributes hundreds of films so our goal was to create a clean way to publicize their films while also providing easy access to the entire collection. The site is in Beta and we are still fine-tuning the design. See more.
