We love working with people to create the website that they want.
The internet is just a world passing around notes in a classroom.
Jon Stewart, comedian
When I first started working with websites in 2004, the internet as we know it today was still a brand-new world, where people were learning as they went. It has grown up into a fascinating tool that has served to level the marketing playing field for businesses. The entry-level cost is low and the lights are always on.
I have helped business owners and individuals find their voice in the digital arena and have worked within a wide range of budgets.
My university training in geography, especially map-making, helped me to understand how to take a mass of data and display it in a visual way to make sense of it all and to communicate the heart of what the data was ‘saying’. I have worked in photography darkrooms and watched the magic of a developing image, knowing that it was partly how the image was shot and partly how it was developed that created the final image. In 2006, I graduated from a program where I learned the building blocks of writing the code that makes websites function and work in your browser.
In short, I enjoy the entire process, from research and discovery to design and implementation. I come from a ‘minimalistic’ perspective (“Less, but better” – Dieter Rams) and work hard to make sure that each part of a website is hard at work, not just looking pretty.
It would be my pleasure to meet with you and talk about your website needs.

We did it!
We were very pleased when a website designed by CarricDesign was featured in the January 2007 issue of Practical Web Design. The article was part of a design challenge that rated sites based on a combination of design, usability, accessibility and content.
CarricDesign’s website, designed for Bayridge Alliance Church, collected 71 out of a possible 100 points, making it the top-rated site for January.
That was also the last contest that we ever entered, because it turns out that clients don’t really care if you win competitions, and we want to care about the things that our clients care about.
