New Squarespace Website Launched for Rhody Court

Isabel Bay Design is delighted to announce that a new Squarespace 7 website for Liz Berman of RhodyCourt.com, was launched in November.

Check out this sweet new, small-scale, sustainable community developing in Port Townsend, WA.

Here's a great example of a small, 2-page, quick website that was created, designed, written, and launched in one day and all for under $200! Wow! And with the Squarespace Personal plan, there's room to grow whenever Liz is ready to add more content.

Additional services: business card design and production.

With the latest version (7) of Squarespace, this new "responsive" website, can be seen properly on all screens, large (computers), medium (tablets) and small (smart phones.) And with Squarespace's online editing tools and with one-on-one training with me or by taking my Squarespace workshops, my clients will be able to maintain their own site in the future. Of course, I'm always happy to do website maintenance for my clients who don't want to do their own. It's so nice to finally have a choice!

I love building Squarespace websites and teaching Squarespace to my clients. Are you ready to launch a new website? If so, let me know, first half hour meeting is free.

New Squarespace Website Launched for Egg and I Pottery

Isabel Bay Design is thrilled to announce that a new Squarespace 7 website for my bicycling buddy, friend and client, Diana Cronin of EggAndIPottery.com, was launched in late November.

No one does pottery quite like Diana—so fun, bright, beautiful and functional. Her new website has information and news about how to purchase her pottery and upcoming shows she's participating in.

By attending my Beginning and Continuing Squarespace workshops, Diana created her own multi-page website for her super creative and successful pottery business. Yay! Go Diana!

"I've revamped my website...what do you think?
It was time. I kept using the same old outdated program and I wanted to change the look of my website and have it function better with social media. So I signed up for a website class with Isabel Bay Design and Adrienne helped me to come up with this new design. It took me several months and I am still tweaking it but I am very happy with the new design. If any of you need help building your website, Adrienne Robineau is a very talented and experienced web guru. She also offers many classes for the do it yourselfer. Check out her website for more info Isabel Bay Design" —Diana Cronin

Thanks Diana!

Lisa plans on expanding her new site with more information and pictures, but this is a great start for now!

"Thanks for the great class, wish I could have been more hands on at home! Looking forward to building a simple site and building over time. This is pretty cool though! For us first timers ;-)" —Lisa Hoffmann

Additional services: logo and business cards design.

WORKSHOP TESTIMONIAL

With the workshop and a little bit of extra help after from me, Artemis Celt, ND, recently launched her new Squarespace 7 website, DeityCentral.com. She was kind enough to give me this testimonial:

“I recently completed Isabel Bay Design's Beginning Squarespace Workshop and give it a five-star rating. Adrienne has three skills that make her workshop worthwhile. First, she has a high degree of expertise in computer-related skills, including website design. Second, she is a capable and patient instructor with an ability to explain new material in ways that are easy for beginners to grasp. Third, she troubleshoots with confidence and ease, always coming up with solutions for the occasional challenges that arise as class participants work on their websites. As a result of having taken her workshop, I am pleased to say that I now have the confidence to manage my website on my own. Thank you, Adrienne, for a high-quality, enjoyable learning experience.”—Artemis Celt

Thanks Artemis!

New Squarespace Website Launched for Brent Davis Construction

Isabel Bay Design is thrilled to announce another new Squarespace 7 website launching for long-time, loyal client Brent Davis Construction. Brent Davis has been building high-quality homes and businesses in Port Townsend and Jefferson County since 2001 and has been an Isabel Bay Design client since 2004!

Large or small, Brent builds them all from "dust to details." He's all about open communication with his clients, long relationships with his expert sub-contractors, keeping his skilled crews busy, contributing to the local community, and most of all, building superior structures efficiently.

I'm honored to rebuild Brent's website and so enjoyed working with him again. I also had the pleasure of redesigning his logo and the unexpected task of writing copy for many pages on the new site. That was fun!

Using a custom designed template with the online website builder, Squarespace.com, I've updated the previous custom designed and coded site that I built in 2009.

With this new "responsive" website, the BrentDavisConstruction.com can be seen properly on all screens, large (computers), medium (tablets) and small (smart phones.)

Book cover designed for L. J. Schuessler

Congratulations to L. J. Schuessler who recently published her book, Waltz with a Cowboy, a contemporary Western romance novel, on Amazon, on April 21st. This is the first book in her Sweetwater Springs Romance series. It is available for Kindle, Kindle app readers, and as an on-demand printed paperback.

I had the privilege to design the cover for both the print and digital publications. I hope to do more books for L. J. and other authors.

I just added a new section in my portfolio for books and since I haven’t done that many yet, I’ve created some mock-up covers to show more examples of my work, for the fictitious author, Trixie Treated, at the bottom of the page. Enjoy!
