Testimonials


Lara is a gifted graphic artist and has been a real pleasure to work with on a blog design. I love her style and the end results! - Kelly McCausey

It’s amazing how well Lara articulated my desires for a beautiful Web page into something real. I didn’t give her much to work with; in essence, I just told her that I wanted something “pretty, pink, sophisticated and professional-looking.” From that, she was able to discern exactly what I was looking for, and boy, did she deliver. Her use of a preliminary questionnaire is a great way to connect – from then on, we were definitely on the same page. She was a joy to work with, always pleasant and willing to accommodate my numerous oddball requests, even after the project wascompleted. I’d book her again in a heartbeat. ~ Rochelle

“When I first contacted Lara, I warned her that I’m not computer-savvy and would require a lot of hand-holding, but she took me on as a client anyway. She installed my new website, then patiently answered questions to get me started ‘behind the scenes’ of my blog. I checked out lots of web designers before choosing Lara. Not only is she a fellow work-at-home-mom, but her classy designs and color combinations caught my eye. Using my sketchy suggestions, Lara created a header design that reflects my personality and brand. I love how she combined the colors and photos to give a fresh look that is professional, yet feminine. I’ve already recommended her to a friend!” ~Beth Bence Reinke

“I needed a WordPress blog design that would really speak to the natural mom community and since I have been admiring Lara’s work for quite sometime now, I was thrilled when she took on the task. She used a simple graphic and created a masterpiece! I gave her some really sketchy info to work with as far as what colors I wanted. Because I asked for an earthy color scheme, I figured my design would be boring…hardly! I don’t know how Lara did it, but my blog leaps off the page. She also made me the coolest siggy on earth! Customer service is important when you are doing business online. Lara kept in touch with me through every stage of the process, even using a friends computer to let me know the status of my design because hurricane Fay knocked out the power at her own home. Thanks again Lara for my wonderful blog. I look forward to using your graphic services in the near future.” ~ Cynthia

“Lara is THE best! She designed an e-book cover, WordPress Theme, and button for me. I now go to her for all my graphic needs! She’s super fast and reliable, very affordable and her designs are top notch. I now recommend Lara to everyone that needs any graphic designing. Even if she doesn’t offer what you need … just ask! She’s more than willing to go out of her way to meet your needs. (Trust me, I know for a fact!)” ~ Anita DeFrank

“It was an absolute pleasure to work with Lara. She was prompt, efficient and wonderful to work with. She took all of my wishes for the design and produced something really fantastic, and was sure to ask for my input during the process.” ~ Shannon

“Lara is the best blog designer I have ever worked with. From the beginning of the design project to the end, she was patient and worked hard to make sure I was happy. I have gone through other blog designers, but none of them achieved my design vision like Lara. I am very picky and analytical but Lara is very intuitive about her client’s personal style and her layouts are clean and professional yet have that whimsical girly touch that most women adore. I will definitely be coming back to her in the future for more blog and website designs. Thank you so much for my new theme – it is vintage, classy and chic! I can’t wait to show it off on the ‘Net!” ~ Brittany

“Lara made the most incredible buttons and banners for my blog. I have a template that I really like, but I didn’t have any advertising graphics. She created a full package and I love every one of them. My only request was not too girly and that I wanted to incorporate some of the site graphics. What she came back with blew my mind. I didn’t have her redo a single thing. The banners/buttons she created are making me think of having her redesign the template I love so much already. lol” ~ Val Shelby

“I was looking online for someone to give my blog a makeover. I found Lara’s site and thought her designs were classy, but also whimsical. I e-mailed Lara a list of things I wanted for a custom designed logo, header, and site. Instantly, I felt like Lara understood what I wanted. She is very fast and really did a beautiful job in giving my blog a fresh look. She really cares and wanted me to be satisfied. And how could I not be? My site is beautiful!! After creating the logo and gorgeous site, Lara set up everything for me on the server and all of my friends who have seen the site love it!

“Ever since I checked out Lara’s site, I couldn’t stop my desire to engage her to give my blog a facelift. I really like all her designs, as they are carefully matched with the blog owners’ personality/ characteristics. I love the image that she found for me, which matches exactly to my blog! I also like her design being very neat and organized. I am actually not familiar with FTP and stuff, but I need not be worried at all – Lara helped to upload the theme and completed all the setup for me, within just a couple of hours or perhaps shorter! I am a perfectionist and have been very picky on very tiny little things. Lara is very patient with me, worked hard to ensure that I am happy. Thanks Lara!” ~ Suzette
