Website Design & Development
June 30, 2019
Dr. L.E. (Lindsey) Carmichael is a forensic geneticist turned award-winning author who writes non-fiction science books for children and young adults. She has published over 20 titles to date on subjects ranging from animal behaviour and the environment, to video games and technology, to medicine and sports. Lindsey is also a mentor and writing workshop leader for both students and adults, as well as a public speaker and conference panelist at industry events.
Lindsey wanted to transition her existing do-it-yourself WordPress blog using a pre-built theme to a custom theme with a modern, polished design that would speak both to her professionalism and her sense of whimsy and fun. Our mandate was to create more visual impact, with her books as a content focal point. After reviewing her previous site and evaluating her content needs, I also identified ways to simplify and improve the website’s structure and approach to content so that updating her site and managing her content would be easier and more efficient.

I’m a children’s author who asked Kasia to renovate my existing website. She understood what I wanted my site to say about me and my work, and delivered a design that perfectly captured my vision. She also added functionality that I hadn’t known I could ask for, but which will make maintaining and updating my site significantly easier. I will work with her again, and enthusiastically recommend her services.
