Meet Courtney

As you've probably guessed by now, I'm Courtney and this is my portfolio. It contains work from my current job, some freelance and one or two things I did just for fun. As a web designer I am not only passionate about design and functionality, but also branding. I not only want to make you a site that looks great, (everywhere) and works great (now and 5 years from now), I want it to support and reinforce your brand and marketing efforts. With a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Graphics & New Media from Johnson & Wales University, and over 5 years of web design experience, I have a proven track record that shows I will deliver just that. I'll take your rough ideas, and with a little creative and strategic thinking transform them into a user friendly website that generates sales. I thrive on a challenge and am always looking for ways to increase overall performance. Past clients and colleagues have described me as innovative, extremely reliable, highly productive and crazy fun to work with. If you'd like to hear more from those I've worked with, I invite you to visit my references page.

Services & Specialties

Web Design

Web Design

Let's face it, the web is where we spend a lot of our free time and gather most of our information. When's the last time you used the yellow pages to find a local service? Without a website, or even a poor out dated website you're sure to lose business to your competitors. Your website needs to be professional, easy to read and embody your companies brand. Hire me to redesign, rebrand, or build your website from the ground up and watch business increase.

Branding

Branding

From the very important logo, to the promotional bookmark or coffee sleeve, I've got you covered. Your brand is a direct reflection of your company and it's core values, it's important that this message is consistent and strong across the board. I've studied branding at both Johnson & Wales University and the Rhode Island School of design, it's something I live, breathe and love. Give me control of your brand and you won't be disappointed.

Social Media

Social Media Consulting

Face what? Tweet who? Google + me = confused! I know, I know every time you turn a corner it seems like a new social networking website has popped up and caught fire out of no where. You've heard of "Social Media" and "Social Networking", supposedly your business should be there, but you just don't see how or why. Don't worry, you're not the only one. It is important for your business to integrate Social Media into it's bag of tricks, but which networks you're on and how you utilize them will be different for every company. Sit down for a one on one consulting session and I'll guide you in the right direction. After your plan is set up I'll also be available for weekly, biweekly or monthly follow up sessions.

"Courtney Curtis is obviously a fantastic designer - the proof is all right here in her work. But what you don't know is how much she does for her clients. She graciously held my hand through my entire rebranding process, created a completely new look and feel for my website that seriously astonished me, branded my social media presence, and even advised me on how to better utilize blogging and social media to market my services. No matter how many questions I ask or how many bizarre requests I make, she always gets it done right, done quickly, and done with a playful giggle. I seriously cannot recommend her highly enough! For as long as she'll have me, Courtney will ALWAYS be my go-to designer!"

"Courtney is an extremely talented and dependable web designer whose timeliness is second to none. When she is given a deadline or sets one herself she will make sure it is not only completed on that date but also delivered above expectations. She is very knowledge about her field and is always willing to teach her coworkers when needed. Courtney is a great asset to any company and a joy to work with."

Every time we were assigned to work on a project together, I had no doubt that she would deliver because she possesses an extremely dedicated work ethic and always comes to the table with very creative and original ideas. In addition, her outgoing and friendly personality make her very easy to work with. All of these traits would allow her to add value to any company."
