Web Design by Amanda Hawkins

I build custom responsive WordPress themes for artists, musicians and small creative businesses. Want to work together? Send me an email! Please include project details, budget and timeline if available.

I’m always on the lookout for designers and agencies to develop long-term relationships with. While I love taking a website from the first pixel to completion I’m happiest when knee deep in code. Because of my background in Art & Design I understand the importance of transferring every detail from artwork to finished website.


I’m really good at building things with:

  • WordPress (8 years experience)
  • HTML + CSS (10+ years experience)

Design vs. Development

I’ve been a graphic designer for 12 years and have designed several websites. However, I would much rather be coding these days. For that reason I sometimes say no to projects with heavy design work – or I’ll recommend a designer that we can both work with together.

Pricing

For a full website prices range anywhere from $1800 to $5000, depending on the complexity.

I love helping out artists, craftsters and new bloggers and am more than happy to work with you on any reasonable request and budget. However, I’m not currently taking on work for trades or no pay.

“It was a genuine pleasure to work with Amanda to bring the bits of my vision to life. My blog / website finally feels like ‘home’ now – a true reflection of self. Amanda was efficient, proactive, thorough, and flexible. She has the rare ability to stretch and blend your vision and ideas with her unique gifts in artistry and creativity.

She smoothed out any of the bumps that I had anticipated with a project of this size and her knowledge of WordPress is impressive. She created efficiencies where I didn’t see them possible. I would recommend Amanda without hesitation for a solid experience – start to finish.”

“In the past, I’ve worked with some bad designers and some terrible designers. And while they all can make a pretty website, rarely do they “get it” when it comes to incorporating even some of the most basic parts of the technical side in WordPress. Amanda’s designs are great, AND she “gets it” so as not to overcomplicate the design process or the end result. She rocks!”
