I started my web design business in 2014 and to date I have built more than 50 websites for local and international businesses and creative entrepreneurs. Below is a selection of some of them, please click on the images to visit the live sites.
"The website is extraordinary. We could not be happier with it. It's gorgeous, inspiring, and it functions just beautifully! The process of creating the website with you has been exciting and extremely rewarding. You are so good at what you do Kerstin! I feel the website that you created for us truly reflects who we are in terms of its content, its feel, and its aesthetic. It is just amazing and we couldn't be happier with your work!!!"
– Jennifer Stein, Owner | Austin, TX
"One of the things I really appreciate about Kerstin is the collaborative nature of how she works. I enjoyed our conversations and the many invitations to decide on font, color, images, layout, etc. She offered many good ideas and she also gave me a lot of space to bring my own ideas forward. I wanted to have an integrated scheduling system, with online intake and payment options—Kerstin built that in. She included tutorials and training sessions as part of the process so I am confident I can update content easily.
I found that Kerstin is a technical wizard but also a sophisticated designer. All the design elements of my site—color, content, space, flow, and feel—are lovely and very expressive of what my business is about. To me, this indicates Kerstin’s ability to listen deeply to who I am as a business woman. This is amazing because at the beginning of the process I was not totally sure what I wanted!
I am very satisfied with both the result and the process. My website is beautiful, professional, warm, and true to what I offer."
– Linda Alley Sarnack, Owner | Tucson, AZ
"Kerstin’s beautiful, modern, intuitive and friendly design resulted in a happy user experience which on the first day of launching this site sent sales skyrocketing. Kerstin is quick to process the needs of the business and delivered SO much more in the design than I even knew I should ask for. I am a FAN. xo"
– Madelyn Mulvaney, Owner | Vancouver, BC
"I absolutely LOVED working with Kerstin on a big refresh of my site. I was already using Squarespace for a blog, but was not aware of the potential I had to do so much more.
Kerstin has such a wonderful eye for visually compelling design. I love the result… clean, simple and a reflection of all that I do and love, which can feel quite busy at times but the website is beautiful and calm!
Kerstin was professional and patient. I was able to ask lots of questions and to give feedback. As soon as we pushed the new site live, my email lists began to grow. I’m very excited for what I’m now capable of doing thanks to my new site. Thank YOU!"
– Stacy Julian, Author and Memory Keeper
"From our first meeting I felt complete confidence with Kerstin. Her approach is creative, supportive and fun. She engaged with me every step of the way, from selecting colors, visual images, content placement and final web design review. Her knowledge of Squarespace is excellent and her design skills are top notch. I highly recommend Kerstin for your next web design project."
– Christina Hemmen, Owner & HR Specialist | Seattle, WA
"Thank you so much for all your encouragement and support, going well beyond the design of a gorgeous website that I am so proud of!! I really enjoyed doing the website in only three days! I think preparing everything beforehand forced me to really focus on what I wanted to convey, and I liked being able to work on it with you in a concentrated way over a couple days. And at this early stage of my business I most sincerely appreciated the reasonable price point for your excellent skills!! I love love love my new website!"
– Alisa Hamilton, Owner | San Mateo, CA
"My website has always been a source of extreme stress. ‘Easy to use templates' have never been easy for me to use, and I've lost count of the late nights spent frustrated while I tried to make the smallest change. Today though, i'm happy to say (in fact, i'm THRILLED to say) that's all in the past! I knew from the first email response from Kerstin that we were going to work well together. I truly love everything about my new site! I'm soooo happy with it, Kerstin did an INCREDIBLE job!!”
– Tamara Wickstrom, Photographer | Los Angeles, CA
"The thought of finally updating my very active website was so daunting that it took me years of start and stop, interviewing a dozen web designers and struggling with concepts till I finally stumbled upon Kerstin. From that moment on, the project took shape and developed a comfortable momentum that brought it to a smooth conclusion.
Kerstin is a unique mix of both being calm and encouraging as well as professional and effective. She's a great problem solver! She was able to take my jumble of ideas and organize them, one by one, into the beautiful functional site that I am so proud of today."
– Vikki Stark, Author and Psychotherapist
"My second experience with Kerstin designing my site was just as rewarding as my first. The process was painless, due to her combination of creativeness, professionalism and, most importantly, patience. There are so many problems to solve in designing a site that is well balanced and effective, and Kerstin has the knack for finding solutions. I ended up with an elegant site that works perfectly."
– Vikki Stark
"Working with Kerstin Martin on our web page was a real pleasure and we couldn’t be more pleased with how it turned out, the site looks TERRIFIC! I had the misfortune of breaking my right arm right when we got started on the project. Kerstin was great about working around my delays. When she was asked to make a change, or an update, she always provided clear feedback on the progress, and she was very responsive to emails. It made a potentially challenging process quite painless!"
– Rebecca Johnson, Co-President, League of Women Voters Bellingham/Whatcom County
"Kerstin was absolutely wonderful to work with. We asked for a clean, sharp website that was easy to navigate and would help us stand out. We didn’t quite know what that looked like but she saw our vision and brought it to life and she ended up making us the most unique website in our industry. She has a great eye for design and I honestly can’t recommend her enough."
– Jayne Barocela, Owner | Seattle, WA
"It’s hard to leave this beautiful site!!! I`m completely in love! I got up this morning and hurried to my computer - instead of the coffee machine - this is so much fun! I think it looks very interesting, calming - the blue somehow tranquilizes you, I feel at ease with the world… I also love how it looks on my iPad and iPhone. You did an incredible job, thank you so much, brava!!"
– Jan Hohmeister, Owner | Italy
"Kerstin Martin is a true perfectionist who doesn't stop until she achieves the desired results. Kerstin is a great listener who has the unique ability to bring your words to life by combining the technical with the artistic. I can't begin to tell you how impressed, excited and grateful my company is with Kerstin's work! In a hyper-competitive industry such as Real Estate, standing apart from the competition is critical. Kerstin's vision, along with her tireless pursuit of excellence has empowered my business to do just that.
The communication throughout the project was excellent! Kerstin makes certain that you're aware and approve of everything that's happening during every step of the process. We've already begun to see a return on our investment. This was money well spent! Kerstin's attention to detail and flare for the unique give her a distinct advantage over other Web Designers. Because Kerstin is a successful Entrepreneur herself, she can totally relate to your situation and provide a solution that truly fits your specific needs.
As a person, Kerstin is compassionate, understanding and extremely positive. It was a pleasure collaborating with her and I look forward to doing much more work with her on a more regular basis going forward."
– Brian Hackner, CEO and Realtor
"My experience working with Kerstin was beyond wonderful! After years of using a cut and paste, template website provider, I finally decided my business needed, and deserved, a website face-lift. After reviewing many web designer's portfolios, Kerstin's clean, yet welcoming designs drew me in. Kerstin had such a clear vision for my site, but also an openness and flexibility to listen to what I wanted. She patiently continued to fine tune my site until it was perfect. I can not be happier with the results and amazed at how much a professional, modern, technologically up to date site has impacted my business! I will continue to spread the word to about Kerstin Martin! She is amazing, talented, easy to communicate with, timely with her design process, and overall fun to work with!"

"Kerstin Martin did a wonderful job designing the website for our bar, Galloway's Cocktail Bar. She really listened to what we were looking for, and came up with a great design for our site. She was very quick and helpful with any issue or questions that we had through out the process. When it came time for her to turn the website over to me, she thoroughly ran me through all of the editing training that I would need in order to update the website on my own. I would definitely work with her in the future!"
– Allison Sutherland, Manager
Kerstin is fantastic to work with. I initially contacted her because of her beautiful portfolio and excellent references. Once I began working with her I realized that not only is she talented but she understands customer service and the needs of a small business. She is incredibly talented but also patient and flexible. I felt heard, respected and I appreciated her suggestions and the time she took to explain her thoughts. There are many creative people out there but to find someone that truly understands customer service is a rarity. I would work with Kerstin again in a heartbeat.

"It was a creative pleasure to bring my new website into the world with Kerstin’s technical wizardry and elegant aesthetic eye. I had a clear vision of what I wanted, including luscious colours and textures, curvy, feminine fonts, and a sense of quiet depth and beauty. From the start I could see that Kerstin understood this and would be able to create it. At every stage in the process she had a wonderful sense of both the overall look and feel of what I was hoping for (a "soul sanctuary" with beautiful quotes and images for reflection and inspiration) and how best to present practical information concerning workshop dates, locations, and registration details. I wanted the website to resonate with the same warmth and soulful presence as the workshops and retreats I facilitate. I am thrilled that Kerstin was able to create this. Despite her busy schedule, she was always available and responsive to questions and suggestions. I will be singing Kerstin's praises to anyone looking for a talented, skilled, and sensitive website designer."
– Marlene Schiwy, Ph.D. | Vancouver, BC
