WEBSITE DEVELOPMENT

Fewer things are more important nowadays than a beautiful, professional, easy-to-navigate website. Everyone needs a site they'll feel confident sending clients to. I specialize in building SEO-rich, wonderfully organized websites that drive traffic and help brands stand out. And with over 6 years' experience migrating, designing and managing websites (including e-commerce stores) on Shopify and SquareSpace, I can build you a beautiful online store and teach you how to best manage it. Your success is my mission.

Photography

Compelling photographs are a crucial component for any brand. I've styled and photographed plenty of products, spaces, people, and places. I will deliver more photographs than you can use, all high res, ready for print and neatly organized via Dropbox.

GRAPHIC DESIGN

With only 15 minutes to consume content, 66% of web users would prefer to read something beautifully designed than not (Source: Adobe). This is why I aim for all my designs to be inspired, impactful and digestible. Whether for a catalog, flyer, homepage, or marketing promo, bringing together verbal and visual messaging through smart design gives your clients a good first impression, makes your brand memorable, lends it legitimacy, communicates your values, drives engagement, and sells.

WEBSITE ASSESSMENTS

If you’re a DIYer and already have a website, but need one-on-one guidance on how to best improve it, I’m your girl! I will carefully comb through every page on your site, assessing its design, layout, user experience, functionality, content and SEO, compile my suggested edits into a detailed report so you can take your time updating your site, and follow up with an in-depth conversation to review my findings and go over any questions.

 

 

What my clients have to say:

 
Bea Rue is one of the brightest and most positive creatives I have had the pleasure of working with. In the months that she lovingly crafted our website, she was able to help us streamline our vision (even helping us edit text), and translate something huge into something accessible in the digital medium. She married artistry and functionality in ways that distinguishes our website from others in the field of yoga. Always quick to respond and execute changes, and exceedingly patient, she tackled difficult and challenging tasks with such enthusiasm that it was contagious. She turned something daunting for us into something fun and interesting. I highly recommend her as a creative website designer and look forward to working on more projects with Bea in the future.

Bea is one of the most dedicated and inspired people I know. Her assistance throughout my business growth has been uniquely thorough and care filled. The fact that Bea works specifically with conscious businesses is a beautiful reflection of her conviction. I recommend Bea to all I know and love who are in need of business support.

Bea’s web design skills have been a primary force behind the recent success of my food truck business. She’s also an excellent photographer - my site features a photo shoot she did at one of our private catering events. I regularly recommend her services to other entrepreneurs. She really knows how to navigate the complex world of online business promotion, and helped put my small business on the map! We’re now fielding frequent requests from clients who found us on Google because of Bea’s SEO tactics. In fact, we went from booking 3 events last year to 23 events this year! Every one of those clients found us because of the website she built. Bea has been an absolute pleasure to work with and I highly recommend her services for any business!

Working with Bea was seamless. From creating my logo to consulting me on my website, Bea helped shape what I wanted my company to convey perfectly.

The logo is better than I had imagined. It was really important to me to incorporate a butterfly into my logo to pay tribute to my grandmother, but I struggled with how a butterfly could communicate my work as a professional organizer and designer. Bea creatively made a skeleton key from the ‘T’ and ‘S’ in my business name and used a butterfly wing as the key bit. Amazingly Bea didn’t know of my love for antiques so the skeleton key couldn’t have been more fitting! She said the idea came to her very quickly after reading my assessment. It was meant to be! It was the first and only sketch we went with and I am so happy with it!

In creating my website I did not have a large budget to work with, so Bea came up with the perfect answer- consulting with me throughout the process which worked out perfectly. I built the site myself but she offered a website assessment and helped me tweak items on each page to make it look more appealing. She also gave me insight on what needed to happened behind the scenes so people could easily find me with SEO. I’m so happy with the result! I strongly recommend Bea! She’s professional, talented and so easy to work with! Thank you, Bea!

Working with Bea was a dream come true. She is fast, responsive, and proactive - which are hard-to-find qualities in a designer/developer. But more than that, she’s truly creative. She rolled with me as my design needs evolved and added so many good suggestions that the site I now have is really beautiful and powerful beyond what I even hoped for. It’s not so easy to find this combination of discipline and creativity in one person. It was a joy to work with Bea. And, I’m proud of the site we created.

Thank you, Bea, for making my first foray into working with a designer such a fascinating and enjoyable process! I appreciated filling out the questionnaire to refine and solidify my needs, and your prompt replies always had me smiling with eager anticipation of what you had to share. Each iteration of your creative and original interpretations based on our give-and-take of images and words led to further ‘ah ha’ moments. The final logo reflecting my yoga teaching and practice, yet you have not taken a class with me and we have never met! Whoa.
— LAURIE BARTELS, YOGA INSTRUCTOR & SMALL BUSINESS OWNER | HEAD TO FLOW YOGA
 
It has been a joy working with Bea on the creation of my website. From start to finish Bea retained a super savvy and professional demeanor, always willing to go above and beyond my wishes ~ I felt so at ease with Bea’s clear and communicative approach. I wholeheartedly recommend Bea for any and all of her offerings!

Bea did an excellent job of shooting our product photos and providing guidance on the development of our website to achieve greater clarity. She has a good eye for detail and was a delight to work with. We look forward to working with her on future projects.

Bea helped me with my first company logo. She took her time and focus to clearly understand both me and my company. From concept to final design, she was extremely patient and helpful. When I was having a hard time expressing exactly what I was looking for she guided me with creative ideas and suggestions! I look forward to collaborating with her on future projects, and I would highly recommend other people to do the same!

Bea helped me create a beautiful new website for the services I offer as a yoga teacher, music teacher, musician and healer. I put off creating a new website for a long time, partially because it felt like a daunting task and I was overwhelmed by how to present all of this information. Bea was able to help me organize all of the information in a clear and elegant way beyond what I could have come up with on my own. She was also able to offer not only design help but guidance on marketing, business, and SEO. I ended up with a website that was better than what I was imagining and one that I believe will help my business grow. And Bea was a pleasure to work with! I would, and already did, highly recommend her to others needing help building an awesome website.

Bea Rue’s work is the yardstick of cool. Her inspired vision can be singled out for the special quality it possesses, not only in her photography but in her design aesthetic, personal and business websites, blog articles, social media savvy and any of her many creative endeavors. (You’ve never seen a prettier, more inspiring Instagram account in your life, btw.) Bea makes you want to be a part of whatever she creates because there is something true, unspoken, and sort of magical present. I have worked with her for over a year which has been an absolute pleasure. She always has an idea, a smile, a word of encouragement or insight. I adore her work AND her, and I hope to continue working with her on many future projects both business and creative in nature!

Putting together an event flyer with Bea was a pleasure. We came to her with just our concepts and ideas, and she was quick and creative in producing a solid first draft for us and easy to communicate with as we fine-tuned it together. We would be excited to work with her again in the future!
