Client Stories

Katie O'Brien Website Testimonials_IPI (1)

"Working with Katie was one of the best decisions I have made in my business.

I had a website, but it was not supported. I wanted to have one single place to show my designs, attract clients, and feel supported.

I really wanted to form a working relationship with someone who understood me and my brand. I had not found the perfect match for me in a web designer and felt a bit lost.

I wanted to work with a professional who could anticipate my needs and make suggestions for me to tailor my website and brand. Katie was that perfect person for me!

I am not worried about my website at all anymore, all the updates are taken care of and that's huge for me. No more broken links, no more late updates. I am able to relax knowing my website is doing its work for me and I can concentrate on design.

Working with Katie was one of the best decisions I have made in my business. I gave her my basic thoughts on what I wanted and she took the design to the next level.

She was able to capture my style and create a brand that is truly ME.

I'm now perfectly branded. My website works all the time. I feel supported every step of the way.

The design and the backend of how all the pieces work together is one of the best parts of working with Katie. I don't need to know how all the website works, I just need to know that it does. She always has my best interest in her hands and that is really comforting. The weekly updates are also part of the amazing support she provides.

I feel confident now in knowing I am putting my best foot forward to attract my ideal clients. I niched into what I do best and that is now reflected in my website.”

– Ingrid Porter, Interior Designer

“Definitely what I was looking for. It's elevated and fun! I feel very proud of this.

I'm selling an elevated product to an elevated clientele and needed my website to reflect that.  My website and brand are now reflective of the work I do.

The website looks beautiful! It feels very elevated. And fun! Definitely what I was looking for. I feel very proud of this.

I love the crisp yet fun design, the brand colors, and the new package logo. I'm a branding snob—meaning I think branding is a huge deal—and this looks GREAT!

I appreciate how Katie is always super open to my directions, edits, feedback and suggestions. It's cool to see how Katie magically brings my vision to life.

She is the BEST of the best when it comes to elevated website design and branding."

– Betty Kempa, Business Coach


"Katie nailed the entire project from start to finish. Flawlessly executed.

The entire site is clean and modern. Katie took the vision in my head and made it come to life online.

Her design services have enabled me to feel confident about my company's online presence and the ability to draw in my ideal audience.

Everyone that has seen our new website has complimented how modern and clean it looks. I feel like our online presence matches our brand, the value we offer to our clients, and the level of work that we perform.

Within less than 24 hours of being live we had already received 7 new strategy session bookings. A good indication that the site is doing what we designed it to do.

Katie’s process is flawless and perfectly executed. She made the entire process of such a huge project simple and streamlined. I never had a question about where the project was in the process, what was coming next, or what I needed to do. As a busy business owner, this was like a dream come true."

– Jessica Hernandez, CEO of Great Resumes Fast

Web Design Testimonial_SB

"Katie is worth investing in. In the end, you will get a website you ADORE!!!

I reached out to Katie via a recommendation from a friend. I had heard such horror stories from other web designers and developers. However, from the get-go, Katie was warm, welcoming, and METICULOUS.

She explained her process and, in fact, she shared a detailed, step-by-step project plan that outlined everything she would be doing, the dates it was due, and my part in getting it done. I was very impressed with that. She stuck to deadlines and met them all.

Katie was always available for a conversation. She was adaptable, when we thought we wanted something and then saw it, she would change it the way we wanted it. I found her work to be of such high quality!

I am glad that I utilized her services to build a website that is beautiful. It really is lovely. She did a great job.

She is such a fabulous web designer and I would recommend her to ANY OF MY FRIENDS."

– Sue Bolton, Leadership Coach

Web Design Testimonial - Joseph Michelli

"We are thrilled with the website Katie designed for us.

Our website felt dated and stale. It was custom coded website and were frustrated we had to contact the developer for every little change.

We are thrilled with the website Katie designed for us. The site conveys our business message clearly and is professional looking as well as user-friendly.

Katie is extremely easy to work with. She listened to our needs, offered her professional insights, and project managed the site so that everything ran smoothly. Katie brings her creative vision to the table plus strong attention to detail so we knew we were in good hands. Any question or concern that came up Katie addressed quickly and efficiently. We could not be more pleased with the results.

Redesigning a website requires a gifted partner and it can be a daunting task, but Katie kept us feeling like everything was under control. Her reassurance, professionalism, and easy-going communication style let us know that we were well taken care of."

"No more website shame – and people are sticking around longer.

After we chatted on the complimentary call - I didn't have any hesitations hiring Katie. I felt we connected and that she understood the vision I had for my site. I was confident it was a fit from the start.

I don't have website shame anymore. I'm more than happy to drive traffic to my site. Overall it's a much nicer experience for the end-user and people are sticking around longer.

I loved how organized and professional Katie was. She managed the entire project from start to finish - I just had to hit the deadlines that she set up.

I also really liked the check-in calls that allowed for feedback along the way. I always felt comfortable sharing my feedback with her, and ultimately I always felt we were on the same page when I left those calls.

I felt the whole experience was seamless from beginning to end.

I wish I had hired Katie sooner. I'm so happy to have worked with her and look forward to working with her again!"

Web Design Testimonial - Karen and Curtis Herbert

"Katie was very knowledgeable, organized, and created a thoughtful design that reflected our business and brand.

We chose to go with Katie because we liked her design approach, she seemed very familiar with how the website would interact with our other business platforms, had worked with those other platforms, and had the experience of working with coaches.

Katie easily answered all of our questions.

We were waiting to fully launch the business until we had a completed website, so we were able to put all the interlocking pieces in place and feel confident in our professional appearance online.

We have no hesitation in referring people to our site and we know they will have a good experience.

Communication was timely and relevant, she held us to achievable deadlines, and we have a site we are confident we can maintain. Within the great structure, she was also flexible in responding to our particular needs and timelines.

We were very happy with both the experience of working with Katie and with the outcome.”

Web Design Testimonial - Kim Jones

"I knew Katie was the web designer for me from our first conversation!

I chose to go with Katie for my project because of her obvious talent, attention to customer service, and her understanding of the coaching industry.

She is clearly an expert in this space, which she demonstrated by delivering beyond my expectations.

It was so important for me to have a professional-looking website that positioned me as a leader in the coaching field. Having such a site gives me the backing now to go full-force with marketing my services as an executive-level coach.

I specifically liked how well she understood what I was looking for and offered her advice on what would work best for me. With each iteration, she delivered according to the last feedback given, to a T.  She created things I didn't know I wanted until I saw it in the design.

My new website is more beautiful than I could have even imagined. I can't recommend her highly enough!"

– Kim Jones, Career Transformation Coach

I am SO excited for people to see and experience my beautiful new website.

Since the website launched, my LinkedIn followers have increased, my inbound leads have increased, and am on track to earn more revenue this year than the last two years combined.

From our first interaction, I knew Katie was polished, experienced, professional, and would approach my project in the same way.

I felt she understood my vision for the website and would be a great partner to help me achieve how I wanted to be present in the world through a visual medium.

I love Katie’s positive energy, willingness to brainstorm with me, her big smile, and the clean, fresh, strategic, and streamlined design of her website.

"The process was smooth, clear and seamless.

Katie clearly knows how to walk her clients through this process in a way that you always feel confident she knows what she's doing. I knew our website needed an overhaul to harmonize with our branding and keep up with our quickly growing business.

I'm so proud to link people to my website. Kind of like when you makeover your home and it represents your authentic self, you're excited to say "Look at this, this is who we are!"

I liked how organized Katie was, it was so helpful in our crazy chaotic business world to have the reassurance that we were working with someone who had it completely together and would keep us on track.

I made the investment so I could focus on other aspects of my business while the expert was building my site. I chose to go with Katie because she understands the business of coaching so I knew she would speak my language. She also came strongly recommended by another coach that I admire.

As soon as I landed on Katie’s website and saw her portfolio, I knew she was the designer for me.

Web Design Testimonial - Trish Bates-Doolin

"The process was really smooth and straightforward.

I chose to work with Katie because I really liked the work she did with my friend Lisa Christensen's website. I thought it really captured her personality and her coaching style. After speaking with Katie on our informational first call, I further felt she had a good system in place and would be a good fit for me to work with.

I had never developed a website for my own business before. I was concerned that it would be onerous and a ton of work on my part. I was also not clear on my niche and unsure [what it] should look like.

I liked the process. It was great to start with a logo design and the ideal client profile. That helped me begin to see themes and get a sense of what the site and my messages would look like.

Katie was incredibly patient with me and very flexible.

It was a great experience working with her and I would highly recommend your service to anyone!"

I was at a point in my business where I was ready to invest more in my business. I procrastinated over my website for so long... but I finally decided I needed to stop trying to do everything myself.

Katie was very organized and quick with her responses. I loved that I could hop on a call with her whenever I needed it and that she always explained tech issues so simply.

It was lovely to work with Katie."

– Astrid Teigaas, Executive Coach

Web Design Testimonial - Kine Fischler

"I have worked with Katie in the past and have always been happy with the communication throughout the process as well as the results.

I really like being able to delegate website tasks without hesitation. I know how to do some of the tasks but do not have the time to make sure I am doing them correctly, nor the focus.

I am always confident that things will be done correctly without any extra surprises.”

Web Design Testimonial - Stacy Dorius

"Katie has a warm, inviting professionalism that comes packaged with the expertise to create a make-me-shine website.

From start to finish I felt heard, understood and supported.

I'm so happy with how everything turned out. I get a big smile on my face every time I open my site - it feels like a burst of good vibes!"

– Stacy Dorius, Energy Coach

Web Design Testimonial - Karen Powell

"Katie is a joy to work with.

I had specific ideas of how I wanted my website to look and feel, but I didn’t want to spend the time learning how to do it myself.

When I first considered working with Katie I had a couple of hesitations initially: a feeling that the price was a little high, and not sure if our 7-hour time zone difference would cause problems or create stress. But these two concerns were overcome as I’m thrilled with my website design, and the time zone difference was hardly noticeable.

I feel very happy, relieved, and confident about my website.

I'm getting really positive feedback from my clients and community about it, and their comments confirm that my site reflects me, my business, and my personality.

Katie is a joy to work with. She's smart, dependable, clear, professional, very efficient and organized, patient, knows what she's doing, has an eye for design and functionality, and is just a lovely person! I also loved that she has a background and experience in coaching, as I felt like she easily understood the specific needs of my business."

"Katie is SO organized and anticipates what is needed before you even know it is needed.

I was concerned about spending money on a website I was not potentially ready to launch. I felt uncertain and scared to share my business with others.

I loved the process and was so impressed throughout how she organized everything so well and anticipated needs.  All the steps were simple and easy to follow.  Additionally, Katie was such a joy to work with.  She listened and got what my vision was and knew what I wanted before I did.

Katie is incredible to work with and I would 100% recommend her to others.  She not only helps build your website but really helps you to understand your brand, what you are offering and what you want your website to do for your business.  She has a comprehensive mindset and just totally gets it.
