Client Testimonial

Founder & Editor, Gender Focus

Kasia helped redesign a blog that I had been running single-handedly for almost five years. Needless to say, it was a little nervewracking to think about putting it in anyone else’s hands. But Kasia was clearly really knowledgeable and confident and worked with me to figure out not just what I knew I needed, but also positive changes I hadn’t even considered. Kasia delivered a fabulous website that runs more smoothly for me and is much more visually appealing and engaging for readers.
