Designer’s Statement…

I taught myself HTML at age 13 (it all started with a “Felix the Cat” themed website). Sixteen years later, I’m still obsessed with web design… only now, Thesis is my weapon of choice.

I do it all, from the branding to the custom graphics to the coding, melding a solid knowledge of the ins and outs of Thesis with an innate sense of how your website needs to function to put you on the path to success on the web.

Looking for a sinfully gorgeous Thesis design…delivered satisfyingly fast? Then I’m your girl!

Better Than Chocolate caters to women (especially entrepreneurial and creative types), offering-up a tasty blend of design, coding skills, and online marketing knowledge. When you work with me, you’re guaranteed to get a truly decadent Thesis site — and the best part is, you get it FAST.

After getting to know you and what you want to achieve with your site, I develop a visually rich, totally unique design concept for you — and then we fine-tune it together via Skype in one glorious day of magic-making… with you presiding!

I call this your Chocolate Session, and it’s designed to squash the frustration and delays usually associated with web design. Instead, we hook up on Skype, I show you your design, you tell me what you want me to add, change, or take away, and I make it happen, right before your eyes as we talk.

A Chocolate Session means that by 5pm, you have a delectable, fully functional site — you can hit the ground running with a stunning web presence!

I asked Amanda to help me with my website after seeing her “Website in a Weekend” from Design Sponge. I can get around a computer with help, but coding and setting up a website scared me. I held my breath and took a chance with Amanda, and it was THE BEST thing I’ve ever done. She was so kind, helpful, and prompt. I tell everyone how wonderful she is, and they can still contact me and I will tell you again and again….I would never go with anyone else on a web design. She is wonderful!

Amanda was smart, helpful and unfailingly pleasant– even when my design requests required her to make infinitesimal changes, and despite my complete lack of knowledge. Her responsiveness and good cheer coupled with her skill and know-how make working with her both a success and a pleasure. I will certainly use her for my next site in the near future!

Working with Amanda on my Thesis-based blog was really fun! She exhibited endless patience as I tweaked and tweaked, and as a result, I am really happy with the result. Plus she never treated me like the ludite that I am, and now I feel much more empowered.

I too found Amanda on Design Sponge and she was quite a find! So great to work with and gave me exactly what I was looking for 🙂

Amanda designed 3 Thesis sites for me. She is superb to work with and I would recommend her to anyone. She has a real ability to simplify the complex and has empowered me to run 3 sites effectively. She is a creative mind who also understands the critical role a website plays in driving business.

Work with her if you get the chance!

Hey! I’ve just stopped by to say thanks for this cool article. Take care!

I also found Amanda through her “Website in a Weekend” tutorial on Design*Sponge. After I followed her very good instructions and hit a dead end due to my own luddite limitations, I turned to her to put the finishing touches on my site. She was able to execute everything I asked for, and she did so quickly and directly. I appreciated her willingness to explain things on my level so that I could learn a bit while, at the same time, she just got the job done. Everything delivered as promised!

Hi there! I completely agree with your opinion.

Amanda was a great pleasure to work with. She really helped me think about the clientele I wanted to target, and the best way to reach them. She also solved some very tricky design issues involved in presenting my work in a user friendly interface. As a designer myself, I found her a dream to work with, creative, versatile and with the skills to execute intricate, highly tailored work.
