Selecting a web designer to work on your project can be a daunting task. Where to start?
A Google search? The phrase “St Louis web designer” yields a whopping 2,270,000 returns. Clicking through and visiting the sites on just the first pages can be overwhelming (as a result of excellent SEO we do feature on that page!) Once on the sites you can check out the portfolio, evaluate the skill set of the company but often the most telling way to get a feel if they are a company you’d feel comfortable working with is to see if there are any client testimonials.
Here is glowing testimonial from St Louis celebrant, Ruth Hasser, www.ruthellenhasser.com which really speaks volumes about how we can help clients with their projects.
“Zoe Feast worked with me every step of the way to design and optimize my first website. She listened to me, understood what I was going for, was wonderfully patient with my inexperience, and delivered what I needed in a professional and timely manner. As a result I get regular compliments on my website and, more importantly, customers are finding me! I will continue to rely on her expertise and thoughtful support. Thanks so much, Zoe.”
Thanks Ruth for taking the time to write this!

There is something so tactile about a carpet of moss, which is abundance in St Louis at the moment after our recent abundance of rain.
I love the variation of textures in this photograph, the simplest of pictures often serve as a great inspiration source when designing new websites.

Fall is undoubtedly here in St Louis.
Today marks a very special day for the St Louis web designer. My husband and I were sworn in as American citizens.

Getting away from the Internet for a whole week … PRICELESS
This week has seen me multi task on nine different design projects. Jumping from logo design to web design, updating client web sites and sales calls.
On this beautiful St Louis morning I took a little time to visit my garden ahead of all the hustle and bustle of the day- it is my antidote to the digital world. I would rather be pottering around among my flowers than twittering any day!
This is a self seeded Morning Glory enjoying the morning sunshine. By this afternoon it will be gone but I will be treated to another spectacular display tomorrow.
A steamy Monday morning here in St Louis and lots to do:
- One branding and website proposal to write
- Two logos to complete
- Three current customers to call regarding new projects
- Four prospects to follow up on
- Five web sites in various stages of production
What’s on your “to do” list today?
A few weeks ago these beautiful irises were in full bloom in my St Louis garden. Notice anything about the colors in this photograph? They are essentially the palette of colors we use in our brand.
I love using nature as an inspiration during web and graphic design projects and as this image shows a simple photograph is sometimes all you need to build a great color palette from which to work.
