Website Design

I specialize in moving sites from outdated (and expensive) hosting platforms to simplified web CMS solutions (Squarespace, Shopify, etc). In the process, I teach the client the software so they can make their own edits once the new design is finished, saving the clients money and allowing for full site ownership.

I offer pro gratis web development for non profits and teachers. Contact me for details.

“Sara helped me to navigate so many of the difficulties I was having with my website using her expertise. She even consulted on a few of the design aspects, which really helped the overall site feel pulled together. I was at a dead-end with what I was able to do for myself and Sara was just the person I was looking for! I’m sure I’ll be in touch with her again very soon.”

The Old Way Farm

The Old Way Farm

My client was struggling to sell her large farm property in the midst of a tough market. I created a dynamic website to highlight not only the house but the property, water rights, and surrounding beauty, then set up several online listings and cross linked to the site. She had a full-price offer in a week from a family who found the house via the website.

Due to the client's unquie clothing line (each piece of clothing was made from upcycled silk saris), we selected Magento to manage the complex inventory. In addition to e-commerce setup and management, I also wrote the descriptions for the clothing and blog posts.
