Meet the designer...

Everyday I work with business owners to bring clarity to their online presence. 

We work together to create a solid foundation for all marketing efforts, the website - where potential customers look first before considering that next step. It is my job to give them a clear message of what you do and why they should do business with you.

Let me help you get started!

Personal story

I was discussing career choices with my son Dan recently. He has an analytical mind and is a natural at coding. I told him, you know, not everyone can do what you do so easily. When you find something you enjoy, use that talent to make yourself useful in this world. I haven't always been a website designer or a small business owner. This job found me 14& years ago. My skills with computers and programming started at a young age and brought me many opportunities over my lifetime. My website design chapter could just as easily be called my "raise my boys by working from home chapter." Designing websites has allowed me to pursue my favorite job of all - being a mom! My boys turned 18 this year and will be off to college in no time. I remarked to Trevor that I don't know what to do with all my free time, his smart @ss response, "go design more websites mom!" God knows I love him.

We don't get where we are out of thin air. There were many chapters before this one for me. One chapter was when I met my husband in engineering classes at college and built our relationship around many mistakes and a few great decisions. Leaving my engineering job at General Dynamics to form Web Design by Robin was one of the scariest decisions we made and, as it turned out, it is one of the brightest decisions, second only to marrying Chris. What I didn't know then is just how hard it is to be a small business owner. I am a talented website designer. Running a business is well - HARD!

We learn quickly in business that we need to find our niche and stand out in a crowd. I'm a service provider; my niche is me. I understand what it means to be a small business owner. My services target local small business and focus on making them thrive. My business in not successful unless your business is successful. My clients think of me as a partner. I design websites and continue to support businesses long after their websites are launched. I am only as good as the product and services I provide. I want to make sure that everything I do is high quality and my customers are satisfied.

My original plan was to start a business doing something that uses my expertise - designing websites. Today my business is still designing websites, however it is much more than that. I am proud to be a local small business owner and I am proud to support local small businesses by providing website design services!

Robin Clapp
Owner, Web Design by Robin

"I’ve partnered with Robin on a wide array of website projects, and am always impressed by her capabilities. As a graphic designer, I design websites, but do not code or build them. Robin takes my designs and is always able to implement them, so that the live website looks just like the mock-up the client approved, and takes that design to build the rest of the site seamlessly. Robin builds every website custom, and works with clients to help them every step of the way, from procuring their URL to training them on how to update their site themselves, if they so choose. She is extremely knowledgeable and stays up-to-date on ever-changing technology. She is very easy to work with, incredibly responsive, and I find her experience invaluable."
