WordPress Websites Aren’t Exactly Child’s Play

Take a look at this very well-written article over on Medium that explains why WordPress isn’t easy for everyone and how we are doing our clients a disservice by suggesting that it is the “end all, be all” platform for web design.

Have We Been Misleading People about WordPress? 

The truth is, it took me a year to really learn it and I still don’t consider myself a “master.” I am a veteran designer – I know lots of software, design theory, typography, and HTML/CSS code. But the WordPress platform was still difficult at times. I can’t imagine letting someone loose inside […]

Top 50 Web Designers Vegas List

I was pretty excited to receive an email this morning from UpCity letting me know that I was included in a list of Top 50 web designers in Las Vegas. It’s always exciting when someone finds your business and even better when they drive free traffic to your website, so to everyone at UpCity – THANK YOU! Be sure to check out their blog for all sorts of small business resources.

My buddy Christina over at LuckyGirl Designs also made the list. Congrats!

We are a talented bunch here in Sin City. Who do you know in Vegas doing great (web) design? […]

Project AngelFaces Launches New Website and Updated Branding

In collaboration with Project AngelFaces and Luckygirl Designs, Designibly is pleased to announce the launch of the new Project AngelFaces website, projectangelfaces.org, and updated organization branding. The updated look will help the Las Vegas-based non-profit organization increase community awareness about it’s programs, including fruit harvesting, support programs, and sustainability services, which benefit vulnerable members of the population in a variety of ways.
Beginning in June 2013 at Vegas Give Camp, a volunteer team set out to provide Project AngelFaces with a comprehensive technology solution to aide in running the non-profit, who’s mission is to “create sustainable social change by increasing nutritional access across socioeconomic standards.” The […]

Designibly Freebie: Courage Quote

A dear friend of mine back in Nashville posted this quote as her Facebook status update today.

We need to find the courage to say no to the things and people that are not serving us if we want to rediscover ourselves and live our lives with authenticity. – Barbara de Angelis
It really resonated with me as I have been thinking a lot lately about the services I offer to my clients. As fun and exciting as business ownership and self-employment can be, it is also fraught with tough decisions, conflicts, communication errors, and a myriad of other situations I find […]

New Design Work: Nevada HAND Senior Living

Here’s a sneak peek of some ad work I recently completed for Nevada HAND Senior Living, a local non-profit corporation with the mission to improve the lives of low-income individuals by providing affordable housing solutions and supportive services. 

Looking forward to seeing this one in the Las Vegas Review-Journal’s specialty publication The View in a few weeks. Look for all four pieces to show up in my portfolio soon.

    Happy New Year 2014: Here’s What To Expect From Designibly

Happy New Year 2014: Here’s What To Expect From Designibly

Here we are at the beginning of another year full of possibility. When I started my design career 9 years ago, I never dreamed that I’d be living in Las Vegas, Nevada and running my own design business. But just because that wasn’t necessarily my dream starting out doesn’t mean it wasn’t a goal; working for myself was always an appealing prospect. I’m fortunate to have reached this goal earlier than expected and I’m so grateful for my handful of clients who kept this little business afloat in 2013.

So, what happens when a goal is met? You make another goal.
You […]
