You're in the right place!  I've renamed my business to create more simplicity and ease in your life.

I am now in my 4th year of business and my client base has doubled in the last year.

I heard of Simplicity and Design from a trusted recommended source. After the initial meeting with Crystal, I knew that Crystal was the ideal person to work with to revamp my web site. Crystal answered all my questions about web design and had some great creative ideas. Crystal is honest, personable and highly skilled at what she does. She has the creative vision to guide a business owner through the building of a web site as well as the vision to provide insight for the business's future. Many colleagues & clients comment on the seamless look/ease of use of the website. I am thrilled with the end result, a professional, clear, concise web site that showcases me and my business. I would not hesitate to recommend or collaborate with Crystal in the future.

Listened intently… invited me to step outside my comfort zone...

From the very beginning of the process Crystal listened, intently. She got to know me as a person, not just my business. She was magnificent in the way she gently nudged and invited me to consider stepping outside of my comfort zone to create the vision I wanted for my new site. The use of the project management tool helped us to stay on track... And her patience is never ending. She was an absolute joy to work with!

I know that I am.

Translated my vision into [a website] that has become an expression of my life.

Crystal has been amazing in working with me to take a concept/vision and move it to something that has become an expression of my life, now, as I am choosing to create it.  Many, many thanks to this creative and competent woman who was able to listen and translate a desire to a desired outcome!  Can’t get much better than that.  If you’re looking for assistance (advice, education or technical) in creating your own web presence, I’m sure Crystal would be happy to arrange to connect with you.

Her creativity sets her apart from the rest.

I chose Crystal as my web designer site unseen, based on a word of mouth recommendation from someone I trusted. I could not have been more right about that decision. When I look at the website I find it a bit surreal as I never envisioned that, together, we would create a website so representative of my new business. It is her creativity that I have come to believe sets her apart from the rest. The initial research she did in my field brought me to conceive of a website beyond my initial expectations which even shaped my business beyond my imagination. When the ideas starting flowing, we fed on each other's excitement and creativity and so much more came out of that synergistic energy. I can now see why Creative is the first word in her business logo. Crystal is a true professional in every sense. Her knowledge of web design and SEO came through in coaching me personally in these areas but also in the couple presentations that I was fortunate enough to attend. It was then that I realized how highly she is regarded for her expertise. As for her ability to guide me to a final web launch date, I was impressed with her leadership (and I am the one with 20 years in the military?!). She was kind, encouraging and yet she exercised her no nonsense mentality to keep me on track with the milestones we had to achieve. What also was key for me was her uncanny sense of what would work (and not work) and her ability to simplify my initial too detailed drafts. She is skilled, talented, creative and a dedicated professional and if you are lucky enough to engage her as your web designer - hats off to you! You are in for a treat and an amazing website.

Clearly understood what was needed to get us what we wanted.

I have worked with Crystal on this site and on parts of two others. I am very happy with all three and would recommend her for anyone who needs help to develop a website. She clearly understood what was needed and worked very well with us to get what we wanted.
