Elisa Shafa, web designer.

My Background

Before going into web design, I owned and managed a retail store for many years as well as participated in a non-profit. I have been in the position of trying to make a website work for an organization.
It can be difficult to translate your business or non-profit entity into an online site that entices your audience, conveys the essentials of what you do, and delivers the goals you want. I know from previous experience that do-it-yourself templates and efforts don’t always come through with the results you envision.

My background is a blend of experience and education which gives me a good sense of what is needed from a website, along with the skills to implement it.

Small Business Owner

A small business owner for 26 years, I saw how much a website influences the overall impression of an organization and how it integrates into its marketing plan.

Web Designer

Web Design is the perfect meeting point of technology, art and service. A beautifully designed and well developed website can go far in helping an organization turn its vision into a reality.

Degree in Psychology

Psychology is very much interested in perception and motivation. It beautifully compliments the aims of UX Design in offering a pleasing and efficient experience for the end-user.
