About our Studio

We’re a small shop dedicated to digital design & development, SEO, user experience, e-commerce, product packaging, marketing, advertising, illustration and video.

Hi, I’m Jeff. I know it’s important to you that your website is welcoming, provides a satisfying user experience, and reflects who you are and what you stand for. Those things are important to me, too!

I was quite happily working for a major metropolitan newspaper as a designer and editor when I heard a few colleagues complain that they spent $$$$ on a website that they didn’t like and didn’t work.

The websites weren’t at all what they talked to their web designers about. In fact, they hated their new websites, but their designers either wanted more money or weren’t responding at all. My colleagues felt stuck—they didn’t know what to do, and they weren’t sure how to communicate what they wanted.

Basically, I was witness to a lot of “I spent all this money and THIS is what I got in return?” moments. They felt more like an ATM for their web designer than like an actual client.

I looked at these websites and thought, “How could someone take thousands of dollars and put out this junk?” I thought that was B.S. I knew I could do better than that. Way better. And so I did.

Attractive, high-functioning websites

Yes, I’m a skilled, award-winning graphic designer, but my expertise in project management means I can brainstorm, develop content, edit photos, design logos, write code, choose color palates, do SEO, etc. Many people are good at one or two of those things…my small team and I are good at the whole shebang.

You’re not just a cog in our business wheel

How I make your life easier: Tell me what you need, and we’ll take care of it. Small business owners and entrepreneurs have enough on their plates. They don’t need to worry that their website isn’t going to look good and reflect their brand, that their SEO isn’t going to be effective, that links won’t work, that their pages won’t load.

Communication, communication, communication

I’m kind of like the Dunder Mifflin of website design. I’m there for you, I’ll pick up the phone, I’ll respond to your emails (and actually read your emails).

I know how important good communication is, and how frustrating it can be when it breaks down. That’s why I take the time to thoroughly find out what you need from your website before starting the design process. What functions do you need? Who is your audience? How do you want your website to feel when people come to it? And then I stay in communication with you, every step of the way.

Frequently asked questions

I need a website, but I don’t know where to start.2022-12-30T17:56:07+00:00

No problem. That’s what we are great at doing at JPD Creative Studio. Let’s chat about your what you need, and we will take it from there.

My website is slow to load and my customers complain they can’t find me.2023-01-01T19:52:15+00:00

This is a common problem, and we know how frustrating it is! Let us handle the investigation into why your website is having issues. We will find the answers, then fix the problems.

Help! My website is offline.2023-01-01T19:53:36+00:00

You’re not alone, and this happens far too often. Whether the problem is that the domain hasn’t been renewed, or that malware has infected the site (or something else entirely), we can help.

I can’t afford a new website. Why does it cost so much?2023-01-01T19:49:39+00:00

Website design and development isn’t just about choosing colors, fonts, photos and copy. Making a website look good and function well is a technical process. If the backend (everything “under the hood”) isn’t set up correctly, your website just won’t be what you want and need it to be. (We’ve seen far too many websites that look OK but are hot messes under the hood, which causes a lot of problems.) Our costs are in-line with our competitors, but we do understand it can be a lot up-front. If you can’t afford the full up-front cost, let’s talk and see if we can come up with a payment plan to get your site up and running and your business bringing in revenue. Remember, a quality website is an investment in you and your business!
