But, Before we start…
I’m sure you’re wondering if it’s even worth spending your money on a web designer, right?
Well, an investment in your brand design is something that’ll be with your business for the long-run. And not only will you have branding that can be used on your website, you’ll have a cohesive brand image that can be used on social media and other marketing materials. I also dive into business strategy with you to make sure your website and branding can actually help you reach the goals you have for your business. As a serious business owner, I know you want to show off your business at its highest potential and having a good website and branding strategy are ways to do that. Plus, you’ll come across as a more credible expert in your industry.
But maybe you had a bad experience with a web designer and you’re not sure if you want to risk investing in web design again?
Here’s the thing…I do things differently with my design practice. I have a clearly defined and transparent process that’s created to give you a premium web design experience when working with me. I want my clients to all have a fun and effortless journey as we work through projects together, so I complete all my work in a project management tool that you’ll have access to so you can literally watch the progress, and I listen to you and your needs to make sure the project lives up to your vision.
Or maybe you’re questioning if a good website and branding will even make a difference for you?
As humans, we’re all visual. We get our first impressions by what we see and then what we read or hear. So therefore, the visuals are everything when it comes to establishing yourself or further solidifying yourself as a pro in your industry. Allowing an expert to create beautiful and strategic branding for you will give you a top notch image, while making it easier for your clients/customers to take the actions you want them to take on your website (i.e. signing up for your email list, booking your services, purchasing products, etc.). And that’s because I design websites not to just be pretty, but to help you get results.
Don’t just take it from me. Here’s what my happy clients had to say…
Keshia was extremely professional and had a detailed timeline with instructions for next steps. The communication was the best part of the project. I always knew where we were on the project and what was needed to move forward. The new design should increase my profile, sales, and visibility. The design highlights my personality and the experience potential clients will have by working with me. It's the best first impression.

“Keshia was fantastic and delivered everything with plenty of time! During the consultation video call, I liked being able to see her face and she was so warm and welcoming that I trusted her pretty immediately. I loved that each step was tracked out at the beginning of the process, so there was no guessing about progress. The design will create a very personal brand identity that will help people gain an understanding of Ness as an artist. For someone considering hiring Keshia, I’d say DO IT. Keshia is thorough, kind, and so easy to work with. Her communication is phenomenal and timely. She produced an end result that really fit our vision.”
-Tylah Gantt, Ness Nite
“Working with Keshia on my startup business web design was easy and economical. Keshia is extremely creative and has a very artistic eye. She was very professional and asked great questions which enabled me to share my vision for my website. Not only did she design a beautiful site, she also created a logo that I absolutely love. I am very thankful that I found her and am happy to serve as a reference for anyone who is serious about creating a website with a modern look that is easy to navigate.”

Frequently Asked Questions
What platform will you build my website on?
Squarespace is the best platform to use—hands-down. It’s what I use for all of my clients. I’m highly experienced in creating fully customized Squarespace websites. Squarespace has all of the necessary functionality for any features you’d ever need, with plenty of add-on features, such as an e-commerce store, membership site, password protected private web pages, subscription products, and much more. Squarespace will also be much easier for you to maintain as changes in your business occur. (i.e. you’ll be able to make simple tweaks without coding!)
If you prefer Wordpress, I can also design your site there, using Divi to create a fully customized website with the same features as Squarespace.
Do I need to buy a domain or hosting before working with you?
With Squarespace, you can buy your domain directly through there, so there won’t be a need to buy a domain or hosting in advance. However, if you already have a domain somewhere else (like Go Daddy), that will work, too. I'll just redirect your domain to the new website I’m building on Squarespace. Hosting on Squarespace is also extremely affordable, with business plans with fully integrated ecommerce stores starting at only $26 per month, or $18 per month if you pay for an entire year upfront. If you don’t need an ecommerce store, you’d choose the Squarespace personal plan, which starts at only $16 per month or $18 per month if you pay for an entire year upfront.
For Wordpress, I recommend buying a domain through Bluehost. You’ll be able to pay for both your domain and hosting on the Bluehost website.
How quickly can I work with you? Can you start working with me next week?
I’m currently booking for June and July 2019 and there’s one spot left for June. You can reserve your spot in advance so I can book your project in my schedule. There are limited spots available for each month.
