What other People are Saying

Don't just take our word for it

From our plan, she began to create. At each step, each reveal, from my custom logo to the finished web design, she nailed it. During our brand proposal meeting I had tears in my eyes because I couldn’t believe how perfectly she had captured the heart of what I do. My logo design has received more compliments from peers, colleagues, and clients than I ever imagined. And the finished web design TOOK MY BREATH AWAY. 

 "At each step—each reveal—she nailed it!"

Courtney did my first design years ago...then a second...then a third. She's the only one I trust to take my ideas and give them life. She elevated my brand and gave new life to my business. Since elevating my design with her expertise, my business has quadrupled and new opportunities (like the Food Network!) have come along! Thank you, Thank you!

"She gave my business new life."

- thea heaussner

I found Courtney years and years ago when I first started my photography business. She was referred from a friend and I immediately fell in love with her work. When it was time to update and rebrand, there was no question that Courtney was who I wanted to do my design. She is a dream to work with!

Every great design



Whether you're familiar with Showit or just getting started, below are a few of the most frequently asked questions to equip you for your design experience.

commonly asked questions

What exactly is showit? I've never even heard of it...

Showit is a leading web design platform for small business owners of all kinds. While allowing for traditional blogging with Wordpress, Showit allows you to have complete creative control of your website. No more being stuck unable to make changes to your site because you're unfamiliar with code and HTML. Showit is a DIY'ers best friend. 

If you are purchasing a web design of any kind you will need hosting or a Showit subscription. This is needed in addition to your purchased design package and can be purchased separately through Showit. Showit offers both monthly and yearly subscription options to suit your budget and business needs.

Do I need some kind of hosting service or a subscription?

Because Showit is AWESOME! No, but really. After working strictly with Wordpress based themes for almost ten years, I grew tired of the limitations of Wordpress. Theme's can only be customized so much and adjustments are limited. With Showit, The sky is literally the limit! We have 100% flexibility with what we can create for your site.

why should i choose showit instead of a traditional wordpress design?

You bet I do! I know what it's like to have to budget and I know what it's like to have startup costs hanging over your head. I offer multiple payment plan options for all of my clients, depending on which package you purchase! I offer 3, 9, 12, and 18 month options; guaranteed to give you a price point within your budget. 

this is a big you offer payment plans or discounts?

This one is super simple! Whenever you get ready! Just shoot me an email using the contact form here on my site! Be sure to select what it is you need help with. I respond to email within 48 business hours, so you should hear back pretty soon! I can't wait to create something amazing with you!

alright...i need this in my life. how long until we can get started?
