Hey! I'm Rae!
I help small businesses take the stress out of web design so they can get back to what’s important - connecting with their customers and building their business.
I’ve always been an entrepreneur at heart.
As a kid, I was always creating fake businesses. They each had their own brand identities that I’d design with paper and markers. But like so many people, I did what you were “supposed” to do when I became an adult.
After working in a dozen industries (floral, sales, bridal, marketing, ministry, restaurants, retail, hospitality, and law firms), I picked up A LOT of invaluable skills and experience in marketing, sales, and business.
I was never fully happy working for someone else. Can you relate?
Like you, I couldn’t ignore that entrepreneurial fire inside of me. It was growing larger by the minute
So, I took the plunge into building my own business....
In 2015, I started Shaka Designs to help small businesses like yours with their web presence and branding.
If you’ve tried to build your own website, you know the frustration that comes when you can’t quite get things right or when you feel stuck in a template.
What if you had someone who could make designing a high-converting website easy-peasy? What if you also had an intuitive platform where you could easily make changes or updates yourself?
Enter You, Me, and Wix!
Along the way, I've learned some things. While Wix is simple, it’s not necessarily easy. That’s why Wix designers like me exist.
I’m here to take the stress out of web design. Or in other words, Hang Loose!
(yes...that's me in my bath robe lol)
I might be the right designer for you if...
You know the value of hiring a specialist
You’re serious about building a business and website that is sustainable and successful
You're clear on your brand vision & voice, & target audience
You know you could spend a dozen hours on YouTube, but your time is better spent growing your business
