We’re excited to announce another Customer Story of a stay-at-home mom turned professional website designer who has a truly large collection of beautifully designed sites. Read on for her tried and true plugin recommendations and become inspired hearing her upward solo journey of website designing.
I am Nicki Lloyd, and I run Mara Communications, a website design and consultancy business based in Melbourne, Australia. I am also co-director of Hub Business Solutions, which provides an online marketing and communications portal for local businesses.
Mara Communications was founded in December of 2014 as a web design company. My professional background was in print management for several large companies. After a largely corporate career, as a full-time mum, I made the decision to not return to it. Without a technology or design background, I dabbled in newsletter and website editing for a local community playgroup. This was my first taste of website design.
This month’s Customer Story features a branding and designing studio called LICKERISH. One look at their website and you’ll get the idea. Their goal is to make your work stand out in style. The websites they’ve created might surprise you when you find out they didn’t begin with web development. Read on to see how Themify helped put their beautiful designs to web developing perfection.
We are a Brand Strategy & Design studio named LICKERISH. LICKERISH was founded by Dovile Sidlauskaite, who has a Graphic Design and Arts background, and Martynas Kudarauskas who brings his expertise in Marketing and Business Growth. For about 5 years now, our designs have been helping brands and businesses to create impactful connections with their audiences.
And now more recently, we have been developing customer experiences in the digital space. During this shift, we explored numerous options for website development and we are very glad to have found Themify.
Welcome back to a new installment of our Customer Stories. Just like his name Lee Pears, his story is also short and sweet. He shares how he went from a veteran graphics designer for major fashion magazines, including British GQ, Tatler, and Elle UK, into an empowered web designer.
Making the switch from old media to new media can be hard, but Lee shares it isn’t so. Let’s hear from him now.
My name is Lee Pears. Yep, you guessed it, pears like the fruit. ‘Pears like the fruit’ is actually my Instagram handle because of the amount of times I’ve had to say it so that people would get the spelling right – I at least thought it was about time it paid its dues.
One look at this month’s Customer Story agency website will have you fascinated as to how he created it all on his own, with the help of a Themify theme! Let’s dive in and hear Lester’s best tips and tricks on using Themify and WordPress to create his own digital marketing agency site, and for all the sites of his clients.
My name is Kart Lester Balangue, I currently run my own digital marketing agency with the goal to help businesses grow and eventually be the authority in their field. Hence the name, Eminence Digital Media.
Originally, I started doing web design in school when one of our main assignments was to design a recycling website. Back then I had a little bit of CSS and html knowledge due to an old social media platform that allowed you to customise every aspect of your personal page, which I spent plenty of time doing. I enjoyed designing and building that recycling website and it ended up being one of the best websites in my class.
Welcome to another Customer Story, where we share the beautiful work and interesting tales of our clients. Today we’re journeying to the west coast where we’ll hear the success story of a web designer, who was hesitant about WordPress at first, but after switching over, fell in love!
My name is Brett Hallonquist and I live in Seattle, Washington. For the past two years, I’ve been the Creative Director at the largest regional real estate company in the western U.S., Windermere Real Estate, tasked with overhauling their entire brand and collateral top to bottom. Prior to Windermere I ran my own successful graphic design business, Atomic Design Lab, for nearly 20 years.
It’s always exciting to hear the different ways and purposes people use Themify, and this month’s Customer Story is no different. We’re pleased to welcome Professor Robinson as well as an entire several years of graduates and undergrads of Colorado State University. They’ve been using Themify to create WordPress sites to flex their digital marketing skills and to help local businesses get their websites started.
My name is Dr. Arnold Robinson III and I am a Clinical Professor at Colorado State University. I teach undergraduate Digital Marketing and Social Media Marketing, and graduate level Search Engine Optimization and Digital Marketing.
I graduated with a CIS (Computer Information Systems) degree in 2001 and my first job out of college 2001 was as a web designer. I have been involved in websites and digital marketing ever since. Throughout the years I have obtained an MBA and a Ph.D. in marketing. I currently own a web design company on the side while I teach full time at CSU.
