We help local businesses thrive.
We are a design company uniquely equipped to handle any type of company image and grow the marketing, visibility and online presence of local companies in smaller communities through current and emerging technology.
Lakes Area Design was started in 2011 after seeing a strong need for local small businesses to have truly effective strategies both online and offline.
The explosion of web-based consumer technology has spilled over to rural areas requiring small businesses to achieve the same level of online visibility and search-ability as a business in a major metro area. Lakes Area Design prides itself on offering small businesses the knowledge and services necessary to leverage the full capabilities of this rapidly expanding technology.
It is my personal and business mission to use the knowledge and skills I possess to lead small business owners to growth in their local markets through well-planned strategies.
I bring the process of design to local small business owners by providing education about how the design process should function to drive business and why design isn’t just something pretty to impress the consumer, but rather a powerful sales tool when utilized effectively.
