I started my business (also known as Agdeppa Creative LLC) with the hopes of helping other small business owners by lending my expertise in design to make their lives 100x easier.
My passions have always been intertwined with art and technology, so web design became a whole world I stumbled into and never looked back.
I am currently based in Portland, Oregon, but my roots will always be planted back home in Maui, Hawaii.
My web design discovery began in university learning essential project management skills, working with real-life clients, and receiving essential feedback from my peers. I graduated in the summer of 2020 with a bachelor’s in Integrated Media and German. Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic had other plans and my post-college expectations were thrown completely out the window.
Since then I’ve picked up sewing as a passionate hobby, moved in with my best friend, and went on an adventure of a lifetime in South America. But there is nothing I’d rather do than to work with other small businesses near and far, and help to connect them with their consumers online.
I can’t wait to take my passion of web designing and helping people to the next level by making it my career. This all would not be possible without the support of my friends, family, and you.
Small businesses make the world go ’round, in my opinion. Once we get the project started, you will be in the loop 100% of the time. I like to make sure we set up a meeting for each big step of the design process to go over new things, changes, what you like, and what you don’t. If there is something you don’t understand, I will be available to help.
When I’m interested in a new design trend or hobby, I put my all into it. My friends might say I’m too curious for my own good, but I would not be where I am if I never sought out to improve my skills and figure out what makes the wheels turn.
Sometimes you don’t realize exactly what you need until we’re halfway through a project. Don’t worry about it— I’m here to make sure the magic still happens. Not only will there be plenty of time for revisions, but I’ll be asking the right questions so that we’re prepared from the beginning.
One thing that’s really important to me as a designer is my arsenal of tools that allow me to create the best experience for my clients and their projects. These include industry-standard platforms like the Adobe Suite. For web design, I specialize in WordPress and Elementor.
Fun fact: WordPress powers around 43% of all websites on the internet.*
If you want a website/brand identity to be proud of, you’re in the right place. It’s time to make a step towards change so that you can get back to what you do best.
