Our Origin Story
Jess started designing sites in 2009. At that time, she was a doula—a new business owner wanting to help families expecting newborns. Soon after, other doulas began asking her to build those sites, as did her friends, and the business grew from there.
After moving back to Idaho, Jess had to say farewell to the doula business due to the low number of births happening in the valley. At the same time, her success rate with websites, graphics, and logos grew—along with the demand for them.
As a natural entrepreneur, Jess was committed to remaining a business owner. She’s grown the business by being open to collaborations—and by getting referrals. Almost all of her designs come from recommendations from happy clients.
It’s full circle: creating and nurturing websites isn’t too different from helping to care for new families. It’s all about service and a caring heart, which is how Jess continues to have a vested interest in the success of her clients. Just as she likes getting updates on her doula babies, she enjoys watching businesses and nonprofits (and their websites) succeed and grow.
