I am a freelancer, specializing in custom web site design at very competitive rates, among other types of web, graphic and marketing design. I have 5 years experience in the IT/Web design field and bring a fresh outlook on layout and design, enabling me to create user-friendly, unique websites using CSS, DHTML, JavaScript and Flash. I realize that over 90% of the time, a potential client will see a piece of marketing material or website about your company, before first contact. For that reason, it is my mission to ensure that the services I provide will create lasting positive impressions for the clients that you serve.

Sarah has been helping me create my professional website for over a year now, and I could not be happier. She is always willing to change little details here and there- and even when I am just being "fickle" she is always eager to help out and make the website the best it possibly could be. I love final result and it is so cool to see all of the work that she puts into her pages happen before your eyes, one piece at a time. She is very in-tuned with what is "in" and how to get the best possible results for your website. All of her websites are able to snag a viewers attention and leave them wanting more. I am always excited to pass her name along to any and all of my peers and colleagues- because I know that I am putting them all in good hands. She has the power to transform any website from ordinary to out of this world! Sarah is a truly gifted web designer. If you can dream it, she can do it. She is patient, responsive, and willing to put in the time to give you an amazing finished product. It is obvious that this is a passion of hers, and that she not only CAN do it, but actually ENJOYS doing it. It was a great feeling knowing that I had someone who was there helping me out on this process. She realizes how important a website is to each of her clients and she is always there to give them the best results possible. Needless to say, if you need a website done the right way- I would highly suggest having Sarah do it for you." ~ Jenna Loomer [login to view URL] "Sarah Meares is definitely a web designer that is on her game. She is both creative and professional and really pays attention to the details. Her creativity in designing my website was both innovative and fun. She is quick to respond and works well in to the night to make things happen. There were times I would send a change via email late at night expecting to see changes the following day, and before you know it, it was already done the same night. I definitely recommend her work. She is easy to work with and is full of new ideas and thoughts when needed. I will definitely be working with her on other projects in the future." ~ Rob Rutten, Director Underdog Agency, [login to view URL] "I was extremely impressed how fast Sarah understood the scope of my project and her communication skills were excellent. She kept me updated on the progress of my project and completed it in the time frame of her original quote. Customer satisfaction is important to Sarah, and it shows in her attitude and work." ~ Michael Garguilo, President [login to view URL]
