I've been running my own independent creative shop since 2002. Through irmacreative, I design, write and organize websites to best project the voice and message of my clients. I love working with artists, small creative businesses, community-building organizations and environmental groups who are passionate about their work. Beyond a beautiful, efficient website with a clear message, my primary goal is to help my clients understand and harness the power of the internet so that they can foster their community on and offline.
My irmacreativity comes in finding the balance between beautiful design and strong effective content. I enjoy working with clients to develop the substance of their website as much as creating the pretty stuff that goes around it.
I recently began rolling out a new service called "Smidges" with the goal of providing even greater access to beautiful, efficient design. Clients choose predetermined layouts that will fit their website needs and then I design a customized aesthetic suite (graphics, logo, colors, fonts) to make the site unique to their message. Because the layout and basic framework of the site is already complete, I am able to charge 50-70% less for Smidge designs! It really is a win-win situation for everyone: I get to do the "fun" part of designing while my clients get a new unique website for a fraction of my usual custom design rates.
