Hey! My name is Denise.
I am a web & font
designer based in Utah

I have been working as a freelance designer and developer since 2005. I’ve always been someone who has both a creative and a logical side. Growing up, my favorite classes were usually art & math.

When I discovered web design my first year of college, I realized it would be the perfect fit. I could use my creative side to design and my logical side to code. As a bonus, being both designer and developer allows me to make sure no detail is lost in translation. When I put something in the mockup, I’m already planning how to build it out.

I love working with
small businesses

I specialize in creating sites for individuals and small businesses. You shouldn’t have to settle for cheap solutions or generic templates. I provide custom designs at afforable prices. Frequently, your website is the first impression your customers will get, so make sure it’s a good one.

Since my time is split between a few different things, I’m not able to take on every project I’d like to, but I'm always looking for unusual and fun work. Take a look at my portfolio, if you think I’d be a good match send me a message with some details about your project. For any other questions, check my FAQs first.

I love to create fun, hand-drawn fonts and digital designs. Who would have thought sketching in the margins of my notes during class was actually career prep? I sell my digital goods on Etsy, Creative Market, The Hungry JPEG, Font Bundles, and YouWorkForThem.

What advice do you have for design students?
Resist the urge to be trendy and just do what you are good at. It will make you stand out. It may not be everyone's cup of tea, but you don't need to please everyone anyway. You just need to please enough to keep you busy.

What advice do you have for someone who wants to start freelancing?
I wish there was some secret I could impart, but I think figuring things out for yourself is part of the package. You can get advice from twenty different people, but ultimately you’re going to have to figure out what works for you. Plus, you need patience and a whole lot of luck.
Do you do custom lettering, logos, or illustrations?
No. The only client work I do is for web design and development.

Do you build ecommerce sites?
I don't do custom shopping carts, but if you are planning to use an ecommerce service, I can integrate that.

What resources do you use to learn code?
The best way I learn is by watching and listening, so as often as I've been able to, I learned in a classroom. I also recommend A Book Apart. They are brief and to the point. And lastly, a lot of my knowledge comes just from googling the answer when a problem comes up. Eventually, it makes it into your arsenal.
