It's not just design + branding— it's synthesis.
You're a passionate business owner— a coach, a writer, a healer, a tarot reader, a yoga teacher. You're an expert in your field, and you need a website that is as dynamic and inspiring as what you do.
To really make a difference and succeed in your business you need to reach every single customer as though you are making that connection with them one-on-one. You need to educate your clients, inspire them to make a change, and motivate them to take action.
How? You need a professional brand and website that not only work, but work together to let your business shine. Your visitors will feel absolutely confident to invest in your products and services, because you've shown them that you're invested in your business.
I design websites that attract your ideal client and put your expertise front + centre so you can focus on what matters most.
"Jordanna is probably the most reliable, meticulous independent creative I have worked with in the past two years as the founder of my marketing agency. I hired her to create two landing pages for me, which she did in record time and followed detailed instructions to a tee. She was kind, thoughtful, and took the extra steps necessary to ensure I was always informed and up-to-date on her progress. With her prices being so reasonable, I can't imagine why anyone would pass up the opportunity to work with her! I was so incredibly happy with the work and was able to provide my client with what they needed quickly and effectively."
"I would definitely recommend Jordanna— she was great, and I love my website! Jordanna explained the process fully and quickly, understanding my IT skills were limited, and I felt comfortable asking questions to ensure I could move forward."
Is a website really that important?
Yes, and here's why: your website is the face of your brand and business. Often it's the first way a potential customer or client really gets to interact with your business beyond a simple social media interaction.
When your website looks unprofessional, your business looks unprofessional. If you were taking the chance on a new product or service with someone you had never worked with before, who would you trust: the coach with the confusing, outdated website, or the coach with a beautiful, professional website that makes it super easy to understand what they do and how they're going to help you?
I saw someone offering websites for $300. Shouldn't I just hire them instead?
You could, but you run the risk of being landed with a poorly designed product that affects your SEO, your sales, and your reputation in your field. You're likely buying a product from someone who hasn't taken the time to understand your brand and the specific needs of your unique business, and it will show.
I don't make just-add-water websites— I work closely with you on every step of the two week intensive to deeply understand your brand, business, values, and goals in order to create a one-of-a-kind brand and design that attract your ideal customer (and blow their socks off). Sound good?
There are quite a few platforms out there on which to host your blog or business website, but I'm confident that Squarespace is the best choice for most businesses (and blogs)!
Squarespace websites are 100% mobile responsive, meaning your visitors are going to get a beautiful, easy-to-use website no matter which device they're using (and your SEO ranking won't be negatively impacted by non-responsive design).
And spending hours searching for the right plugin? Not a time-waster you'll have with Squarespace; all Squarespace plugins are designed by Squarespace, for Squarespace, so you know they'll work right the first time (including e-commerce).
Best of all? The Squarespace platform is intuitive and easy-to-use, meaning once our design process is over, adding content and making changes is a breeze (and won't cost you $60/hr).
WHY DON'T YOU DO A 6 or 8-week design timeline?
Short answer? Because it's just not as fun.
Long answer? Because it's just not as good.
When we work together for a two-week intensive you are my sole design client, meaning you get my full attention for all parts of the design process. During those two weeks I am deeply immersed in your branding and design so I can understand your business's needs in the most authentic way possible.
It also means that I'll be available to respond to your emails Monday to Friday, 8am-5pm within 2 hours— so your burning question never goes unanswered. It also means you have to be available, as well, and ready to respond to updates, so the process moves forward quickly and smoothly.

"This was honestly the best web experience I'd ever had. I've always tried to do my own website, except for one other time. The web designer gave me exactly what I asked for, and I wasn't pleased with it. I really had no idea what elements worked well together, and why some elements should not be together. Jordanna was really so helpful and intuitive in this process, and I cannot think of anything that would have made the process be any better. For the first time in my business I feel like I’m working in a flow. I’m so, so happy with how my website feels."
