I have worked in web and new media since 2005 as a digital designer, photographer, PM, and creative producer for corporations and independent companies.
Currently, my passion is working one-on-one with entrepreneurs and small businesses. I build custom Squarespace sites, produce identity work, handle art direction, and design materials for web and print.
My husband, Tor, collaborates with me on the occasional project and contributes his skills as a UX / UI designer, visual designer, and illustrator.
As a Squarespace Circle Member, I offer my website clients an exclusive discount of 20% off all annual Squarespace plans, a free phone consult, and a complimentary website CMS (content management system) guide.
“When my clients are in need of creative content, Richele is first on my list. She not only has the eye of an artist and what seems to be a bottomless well of ideas, she has the experience to guide me and my colleagues through each project with finesse which culminates in stunning results. I trust her work completely and look forward to any project that involves her expertise.“
— MARSHA WALKER | OWNER, MARKET DEVELOPMENT FOR THE ARTS
“Richele is the real deal. I've been working with her for years and she is my go-to GURU for all things graphic and web design. She's delivered countless marketing pieces and several websites for me. Not only is she UBER-talented in the graphic arts space, she is an absolute joy to work with!
What I love most about Richele is her ability to master the creativity space, developing amazing content while effortlessly taking charge of the project management side. It's very rare to find someone in the creative world who can do both very well. Richele is masterful. She is what I like to call a "Pro’s Pro". She always over-delivers!
If you want to have beautifully design work along with a conscientious professional to manage the process, you MUST work with Richele. You will be over joyed that you made the smart choice of working with her.”
“Richele is the ultimate professional and website guru. I was referred to her by a mutual professional, and was impressed by her transparency and humility as she informed me her exact availability to complete my website redesign. She could have easily agreed to take on the project without my knowing she had numerous other projects, but I was immediately impressed by her specifics on when she could schedule my website, and was eager to work with her. My website was not only completed in the time frame promised, but it was done over and beyond my expectations, with a few extras for me to utilize at a later date. On top of that, I was given a step-by-step instruction document that allows me to update myself and / or provide to a team member to do for me. Again, Richele was accessible, easy to work with remotely, and she was able to re-design a website that truly reflected me and my wedding / event planning business. I'm forever grateful and looking forward to working with her again in the near future.”
— LORRI LEWIS | OWNER, THE DIRECTHER
“Working with Richele was such a pleasurable experience! When we started, I was overwhelmed and honestly confused about what exactly I needed for my website. She asked me the right questions to help me get clarity on what pieces a business like mine should have. Then she expertly crafted the pages to flow in a way that made sense for my offerings and my prospective clients. I trusted her design choices and absolutely loved the beautiful end product she created for me. It's something I'm proud of when people find me through my website. Richele is a professional badass and triple threat with a designer's eye, writer's mind, and developer's brain. She took a process that I was anxious about and guided me through it with ease. And she made it fun! I can't recommend her enough!
— ASH MUDRA | EMPOWERMENT COACH
“Richele has done both design and back-end development work for me. It’s a rare quality to be able to be so exceptionally creative AND also have the ability to focus on the nitty-gritty details of getting complicated website functionality working. I have very high standards for all contractors who do work for me, and Richele has always met or exceeded them. She asks insightful, probing questions so that she can create the most simple, elegant design with high functionality. Richele is also a pleasure to work with—so friendly, helpful, and responsive. I highly recommend her for any type of design, creative, or website work.”
— LORI NICHOLSON | OWNER, WELL AWAKENED LIVING
"Richele gave us attention to detail, hard work, and a creative approach to developing our website for Bennett Suites Bed & Breakfast. She made the process effortless and we would recommend her services in a heartbeat!"
— DONNA BENNETT | OWNER, BENNETT SUITES
“Richele is an absolute JOY to work with! She's a creative genius, a brilliant communicator, and a warm-hearted supporter for her clients. She consulted with me on my author website revamp, providing valuable insights, advice, and direction. I was blown away by how clear, efficient, and organized she was in her approach—she far exceeded my expectations. I was also impressed with the preparation she did for our consultation, doing research and providing written guidance that proved enormously helpful. I felt so much more confident after she helped me choose which website builder would best meet my needs, how to organize my website, how to integrate my logo and design elements ... and much more! I truly would have been lost and floundering without Richele's practical wisdom. I recommend her whole-heartedly!”
— LAURA RESAU | AUTHOR
CREATIVE PRODUCTION WORK
“Our team gave Richele a wide variety of possible subjects and locations to capture during a four-day production. She lined up nearly every option, which was above and beyond our expectations. She has a way of tracking things down and making them happen when others would simply dismiss an idea as ‘not possible’. Richele turns the ‘maybe’ into: certainty.”
— JONATHAN CHAPMAN | PHOTOGRAPHER + DIRECTOR
“We have had the opportunity to work with Richele on several occasions. The process is always a pleasure. More importantly, her thorough pre-production services have enabled us to deliver work that have exceeded the expectations of both our clients and ourselves. Richele really connects with people during pre-production. When I meet an interview subject for the first time and start the conversation with, “I think you spoke with Richele …” I get an instant smile, the ice is already broken, and I’m in like Flynn. Working with her allows us to focus on what we do best.”
