Website Portfolio

With Squarespace I can offer so many options and possibilities to my clients. Here are some recent sites that that we’ve created together. Once the site is ready to launch we have one or two training sessions and then they are able to start editing and elaborating, keeping their site fresh and alive. And I’m always around to help if anyone gets stuck.

Sonas Health Foods

Sonas wanted a new website which would really communicate something more real and personal about their health foods business in Ireland. The site is now a virtual window into a friendly world of health and happiness, through good food and an emphasis on the team. I look forward to visiting them in person one day.

I found working with Rachel to be a really productive and affirming process. Once you provide her with what she needs she does a great deal of work in a short space of time to produce something new and beautiful! Rachel’s style is clear, she speaks in real life language and has the patience of Job when it comes to edits and maybes and what abouts. She teaches you how to make updates and wants you to succeed. I highly recommend Red Ladder Studio.

Jas-Lab Creative Living

Jas-Lab is a one-page site and a window into the creative world of Jutika and Sahaja. I made this page as a starting point for Jutika to develop into a multi-page, multi-project, site. Like them the site has a bold beauty to it. 

I found Rachel very easy to work with, clear and friendly. It’s obvious she enjoys the whole process of collaborating. She’s good at creating beautiful websites but doesn’t impose her taste, it’s more that she helped me to find my visual style. She doesn’t do bland, there is an edge there, where she likes juxtapositions and challenging the viewer, yet keeps the whole layout quite simple. Can’t recommend her highly enough.

Anna-Karin Darpö Yoga

With Anna-Karin I created a 5 page site to present her Yoga classes and courses. Anna-Karin is trained as a doctor and wanted the site to have that ‘seriousness’, but I loved that she chose images that were a little quirky. It helped create something a little different from the cliched Yoga site. Her site is in Swedish.

Kava Counselling

Kava is starting a counselling practice. Words are her medium and along with the images on her site give a real sense of the person you will meet when you book a session with her. Check out her blog, adding new content by way of blog posts is a great way to keep your site high in the search engine rankings.

Starting a project with Rachel I recognised her almost deceptively relaxed approach to practical, technical tasks.
I was surprised by how empowering and enjoyable it was to build a website. She encouraged me to find out what I liked, signposting me to resources and letting me find my way. Then she turned that into my online presence.
I like the end product and the process of getting there - how great is that?

The radical embrace

Singhashri teaches meditation and wanted a place to share those teachings. The main elements of this 5 page site are the teachings page, where she shares audio recordings of talks and led meditations, and the calendar page where you can see what she’s up to and if you’re lucky get a place on one of her retreats. 

Rachel was a delight to work with from beginning to end. Her creativity, sensitivity and sense of humour supported me through a project that was deeply personal to me. I felt she really took the time to understand want I wanted and the end result really reflects who I am.

Red Ladder Studio

Here’s where it all started. This is my own site for Red Ladder Dharma Arts project. It was through making this site that I fell back in love with web design. Now the two projects, Dharma/Arts and Web-design, exist side by side at Red Ladder Studio.
