My mission is to create beautiful online experiences for passionate people who want to level up their web presence.

Lydia Roberts

Owner, Web Designer + Developer

When I started my business in 2014 I fell in love with helping businesses level up their online presence. The kinship and teamwork I always wanted in my career came from my clients themselves — we are and continue to always be a team, working together toward their goals. Many of my clients have been with me since the beginning, and I relish the long-term relationships that grow from our work together.

From 2014-2018 I served as an organizer of WordCamp Asheville, an annual event which helped hundreds of people each year to grow and learn about WordPress. I love meeting other web professionals and being a part of the WordPress community.

My web design story actually began early in my teen years, when I became interested in web design and taught myself to code. My love of learning and the visual arts took me from my hometown of Chapel Hill, NC to beautiful Asheville, North Carolina where I earned a degree in Multimedia from UNCA.

After nearly fifteen years in Asheville, I moved to Las Vegas, Nevada in 2019. I transitioned to working fully remote and brought on Laura, a talented web designer and developer, to help support me and my clients. A few years later, I moved again to the Bay Area of California where I currently live.

It’s important to me to peel away from the computer now and then. I enjoy hiking our great National Parks and traveling with my husband. You can often find me admiring plants, reading and collecting science fiction, and being amused at the antics of our two cats. To see what I’ve been up to lately, please see my blog or follow me on instagram.

Web Designer + Developer

I have had a long love affair with design, although I got my start in journalism. I moved to Quito, Ecuador to work as a travel writer after finishing my bachelor’s at UNC Chapel Hill. But I couldn’t stay clear of the visual arts, and after a year in South America I packed my bags for San Francisco, where I earned a master’s in web design and new media from the Academy of Art University.

After graduating I moved, yet again, to Austin, where I have been happily situated since 2011. I’ve worked with Lydia since 2019 doing web everything from researching and writing about plugins to web design and development. When I’m not hunched over a computer, you can bet I’m out soaking up the Austin sunshine at the Greenbelt or cooking up a new creative side project.
