Dear clients and friends,
After 3+ years doing business under own name, I’m excited to announce that I’m rebranding! Spacious: A creative web company.
My Evolving Mission
I originally started my business trying to be a web developer with a slightly more human touch. What I thought would just be a nice little side-trait became the core of my business. People crave authenticity because so much of the digital world today is plastic.
Along with the rollout of Spacious, I want to publicly double down on my mission to help outstanding businesses and organizations stand out in a noisy, plastic world. I want to partner with unique and wonderful people working to make and impact on the world, and provide you the digital tools you need to create authentic connections with your target audience.
Reimagining Social Media
You’ve all seen the insufferable small businesses on Facebook trying to promote themselves when you’re just trying to chill. I hate that.
It seems the only way to be effective on social media is to be an authentic, helpful human being. I’m testing the waters and would love to connect and hear from you!
“Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.”Antoine de Saint-Exupery
If you try to emphasize everything on a website, nothing stands out. It just looks horrible. Ample whitespace is what allows you to draw the users attention to what actually matters. I aim to create websites that feel calm and focused in contrast to the noisy internet.
If I try to force my clients into a tired digital marketing playbook, there is no space for their authentic selves to shine through. The best way to facilitate a successful project is to guide clients through an open-ended process that allows plenty of space for brainstorming, dreaming, and reflection.
If we fill every minute of our week serving other people’s agendas, we’ll never have a moment to question assumptions or pursue meaningful goals.
All good ideas need space to develop. If everything is a priority, nothing is a priority.
Simply put, there’s simply too much clutter in our lives, our minds, our workplaces, our homes, and our digital spaces. Spacious is my antidote to all that is noisy, crowded, obnoxious, and busy.
A Note of Gratitude
I am so grateful for all of my clients who have made me love this work. Some of you have been with me since my first months in business. You’ve forgiven my rookie mistakes and inspired me to be better. When potential clients approach me, you all are the rubric I use to determine if they’re a good fit. And you’ve referred your equally awesome friends to me, which has been the main driver of my business.
And thanks to this, I’m on a couple year streak of not having a bad client :-).
