Offering Thoughtful Consultation

Whether you need a new website because the one you have is aging or you are starting a whole new business, the most important aspect of creating an online presence is deciding which tools to use. There have never been more options and the stakes of choosing wrong have never been higher. Figuring out how to build a website that serves the needs of your users, loads fast on phones, and doesn’t violate privacy laws is extremely difficult. Working as a consultant, Robin helps brands avoid costly mistakes by identifying the right platform before they begin building.

Launching Hand-Crafted Brands

Robin was an artist before she ever wrote a single line of HTML. While earning a BFA in printmaking, she worked in an art museum. She got interested in branding when she realized that many of her clients needed more than just a nice-looking website. She loves helping with all aspects of the branding process, for audience identification and research to logo design and brand kit creation.

Crafting Agile Websites

The internet has gotten crowded and busy and loud. Instead of falling for the allure of cheap bells and whistles, Robin works to create quiet, targeted websites that leave room for the voice of the brand to come through. She can not only code you a minimalistic website from scratch, she can help you craft effective and concise messaging that will inspire your visitors to connect.

Supporting our Partners

Robin still works for many of her original clients. Though she takes steps to ensure the websites she builds have the longest lifespan possible, updates and maintenance are important when it comes to keeping a site running smoothly and a brand feeling fresh. Robin is happy to help with all kinds of support, from intermittent updates to monthly retainer agreements.
