Collaborative WordPress Web Development for web + brand designers who are ready to drop the code & focus on design.

Design is what you adore when it comes to crafting a custom online presence for clients. Unless you're willing to pick up some serious coding skills, which I doubt. You'd rather NOT code - but instead focus solely on design and not worry about finding which code to snippet to match your design.

Gaining back some extra hours for family, because if you're honest you started your business to be more present with them NOT the screen. You love Google but you rather not spend hours using it to search for random coding snippets that you pray will work.

Collaborative Web Development is a 5-week strategic partnership that helps you save time on website creation AND allows you to focus more on design. Without sacrificing the quality of the service AND functionality you provide to your clients.

Karen Howell

Hi there!

I’m Karen the Web developer with a design background behind The May Creative I work with established designers like yourself to help tell the story your clients need to share.

Through successful collaborations I've helped business owners to dance online successfully. Some have gone on to continue to build thriving online communities, expand their brand and build an audience of like-minded, fun loving people.

I’d love to connect and discuss how we can successfully continue to build dreams one story at a time.

This is perfect for...

Established designers who offer custom designs and needs a skilled developer to help deliver on the functionality.

Designers who know their skills are best suited for their clients by focusing on design and not the development.

Designers who want to stop muddling through the tech and be able to deliver high-level designs as an easy to manage website for their clients.

Designed What I Wanted Without Limits!

Questions others have asked

How soon should I get in contact about partnering?

Definitely the earlier the better, so we can address any questions that may come up.

How does payment work?

Typically the quote for design services and development are separate but presented to the client as one invoice which goes through you. We can either do one invoice or invoice separately.

How do you manage your project?

I use a project management system which you'll be invited to so that we can collaborate.
