“Compelling, Beautifully Designed, And Getting Noticed”

“I had a 10 year old, tired and uninspired website and was immediately impressed with Mary’s careful attention to my unique needs and concerns, her creativity, and how she patiently walked me through her process.

Mary delivered big time! My new website is such a superior improvement to what I had…compelling, beautifully designed, and getting noticed. I recommend her with the highest degree of confidence.”

Has Your Website Lost Its Edge?

Does it no longer reflect your brand or vision?

Have clients (or your CEO) complained about how confusing it is?

Would you say it’s a bit…ahem…embarrassing?

You’ve come to the right place.

You, my dear, ideal client, value good design, are committed to doing this right, and are ready to enjoy the benefits of a smart, re-designed and re-energized website. You’re super busy with your business (especially if you’re in the New York metro area) and want to work with a reliable pro.

I’m Mary Maru…your friendly, local web designer. I’ve got a knack for smart web strategy and marketing design, with a focus on growing small and medium professional service businesses—from lawyers and financiers to healthy lifestyle brands and music industry organizations. I love building transformative website designs and long-lasting, happy client relationships. Read more about me here.

It’s Time To Show Your Brilliance

Because Confusing, Outdated Design Doesn’t Just Look Bad…

It throws a shadow over your awesome work and harms your credibility.

It can cause your ideal prospective clients, perfect potential investors and partners to click away — and erases your chance of ever making a sale, teaming up or turning casual buyers into raving fans.

That’s Bad for Your Business.

On The Other Hand…Crisp, User-friendly Design Can Change Everything

It cranks up your visibility, entices the eye, and illustrates the essence of your brand, beautifully.

It highlights your powerful message, reflects your mission, and engages your people — all while setting you up for your fabulous future.

And — most importantly it puts your genius center stage.

Where It Belongs.

So let’s turn it around
and turn the spotlight on you.
