Tailored to the unique needs of solopreneurs and small teams, Design Day offers a signature VIP experience where you gain exclusive access to my expertise for a full day.
Whether you're looking to launch a new website, refresh your existing online presence, or tackle a list of design and strategy tasks, Design Day is your gateway to achieving rapid, impactful results.
You, the solopreneur, the small business trailblazer, know the value of every minute.
Traditional web design? That's like trudging through a dense fog, where weeks drag into months, and your crystal-clear vision gets clouded by endless, murky revisions.
You're in pursuit of something more brilliant. You deserve the dazzle of speed, the clarity of purpose, and a website that springs into action as swiftly and brilliantly as a shooting star.
Enter Design Day – your shining star in a landscape of lackluster processes.
It's where your dreams and my expertise converge, transforming your brand from blah to breathtaking in a single day.
No more waiting games. No more complexity masquerading as quality.
Just you, me, and a day of focused, inspired action, illuminating your brand with a website that radiates your entrepreneurial spirit and passion.
For the entrepreneur who values time as the ultimate currency, welcome to your digital renaissance.
Welcome to Design Day.
This VIP experience is tailored to fit your specific web and design needs, making significant strides in a condensed timeframe.
While the possibilities are as vast as your imagination, here are some examples of what we can accomplish together in a day:
Breathe new life into your digital presence with a strategic makeover. Elevate both the aesthetics and functionality of your site for a fully revitalized online identity that captivates and converts.
Ideal for new business owners aiming for a memorable start. Launch with a compact, powerful website crafted to ensure your brand makes a brilliant digital debut.
Consider your website wishlist complete. Whether it's design tweaks, feature enhancements, or performance optimization, we'll efficiently turn your "to-do" into "done."
Design Day is your golden ticket to efficient, high-impact progress, but its success hinges on teamwork and preparation.
Here's how we ensure every moment counts:
Be Ready for Action: Your input is crucial. Be available for day-of decisions to keep the momentum going without a hitch.
Prioritized Progress: You're booking a day of strategic expertise, focusing on what matters most to elevate your brand. While we aim to check off your list, our focus is on impactful, quality results, not a predetermined set of deliverables.
Pre-Work Makes Perfect: To make the most of our day, ensure your pre-work is complete. This groundwork sets the stage for a day of uninterrupted productivity and creativity.
Remember, while Design Day is a potent catalyst, the extent of what we achieve together will vary based on the complexity of your project and your specific objectives. Our initial consultation will pave the way, crafting a focused roadmap that aligns precisely with your most pressing needs.
TLDR: You're booking me for an intensive day of design work, not a set of deliverables. You'll have my undivided attention to move through your priority list with efficient expertise.
Invest in yourself today and work with Katy, she is awesome! When it comes to improving your business, having a dedicated professional who genuinely cares like Katy makes all the difference.

Small Business Owner,
Katy is very professional and easy to work with at the same time. She has a lot of experience working with big heavy hitter clients, but doesn’t present herself as anything other than someone who is helpful and will get a good job done for you.

Katy was a perfect fit for helping us redesign our website. We knew we needed an overhaul, but we weren't sure how exactly we wanted the new site to look, and definitely didn't know the steps to get there. Katy took the time to learn more about our business, products, and our aesthetic and helped us step by step to work through the website to end with the perfect look and flow for our business.
