Scale your business with magnetic sincerity.

Strategic website design for an authenticity-fueled online presence

Hey, I'm so excited to have you here!

I'm Caitlin, the founder of Ember & Co — a design studio that specializes in professional website design for small business owners who want to show up in big ways — without feeling "salesy" or insincere.

Let's talk about your spark of genius and why it's time to dress it to the nines.

Your Spark of Genius: A Love Story

What you bring to the world is significant — and profoundly needed. You've realized this. You are intentional, driven, and smart. You know that dream customers are looking for someone that they can know, like, and trust — and you want to be the business they turn to.

You're mindful. You want to lead your life with value and give more than you take. You care deeply about what you're bringing into the world, and you know it's not enough to have a "pretty" brand.

Your spark of genius won't be fanned into flame by "pretty".

You need an online presence that is authentic, strategic, and revenue-generating.

You don't have to spend a million dollars to craft a website that makes you look and feel like a million bucks. You don’t have to be someone you’re not. And you DON’T have to be perfect. I promise.

— Caitlin

  • We worked with Caitlin to design a brand identity and website for our new company and we couldn't have been happier with her work! She was able to take a vague concept and turn it into a professional brand - walking us through the process every step of the way. Not only was she highly organized and creative, but her enthusiasm and passion for her work were evident from the beginning. I would highly recommend Caitlin and Ember & Co for all of your branding and design needs!

  • I had spoken with several graphic designers before talking to Caitlin, but as soon as I spoke with her, I just knew that she was the person I wanted to work with, and I haven't looked back ever since! I'm actually not positive that Caitlin isn't a mind reader because she understood my vision for my brand so thoroughly and then made it come to life in a way that I hadn't even fully envisioned myself (because she is just THAT good). I basically gave her a bullet point list of what I wanted incorporated in a planner for a Health & Wellness challenge and she turned it into an absolutely beautiful and functional piece of art. My challengers are still raving about this planner! (And their t-shirts!) I can't wait to see what she comes up with for the next season. Caitlin also designed an amazing and easy-to-navigate web page for my challenge (she also built in all of the back-end functionality that made my head spin to think about--all I had to do was send my clients to the page and the rest was taken care of!). And again--throughout all of this--she would make tweaks and improvements on things I hadn't even noticed (like my website not being copyrighted--oops!). I just felt so at ease knowing she had my back and my best intentions at heart throughout this whole process. Caitlin was always timely, always willing to help, and always ensuring that she went above and beyond. I literally recommend her every chance I get and she's got a client for life in me!

  • I would recommend Caitlin to anyone I know looking for a designer. She is incredibly professional, thorough and FAST. She took my scribbles, thoughts and bits of information and turned them into something beautifully authentic to me. She brought a dream to life in a way I never thought possible. Highly recommend!

  • Caitlin has designed an email signature for me, done a design audit (with SEO tips) of my new website, and recently she helped me rebrand my photography business for the first time as I just moved and needed a change. Through and through she is the most incredible person to work with! Not only is she amazing at designing, but she also took the time to listen to my needs and helped direct me to an end result that truly represents my brand & personality in the best way possible (I almost cried when she sent over the final version because it felt so ME). She went above and beyond creating my unique logo & updated color palette/brand board and I’m 100% obsessed with the way it all turned out - I can’t wait to start implementing it!

    She is so kind and incredibly organized/on top of it and helps you know exactly what to expect timing-wise for projects from day one. I literally can’t think of anyone I would recommend more for all of your graphic & website design needs!!

  • Caitlin has been so patient with me and easy to work with in designing my logo! She is also very professional. I love that she sends invoices and agreements which is something I really appreciate as a small business owner myself. She was able to take a conceptual idea of mine and make it real! I can't recommend her enough!

  • Long time customer. Most consistent, professional, and design oriented individual I’ve worked with for brand, web, logo, anything design related.

    Caitlin always covers my blind spots so I trust and recommend her whenever I can. I’m not design oriented, I’m colorblind and I have a propensity to lean on my analytical ability which quite frankly has nothing to do with having content that reads well, represents my brand properly, or signals the non-verbal nuances of my brand before I meet a prospect in a way that’s aligned with how I want to be viewed.

    Here’s my point: Caitlin is always on time and wants to earn your business by doing amazing work instead of selling you some jazzy BS that you don’t need or want like many designers.

  • Caitlin has been working with our organization as a Brand Manager for about 5 years now and we couldn't be happier. She is professional, timely, consistent. And her work is some of the very best I've seen. She is creative and incredibly talented and has designed brochures, websites, t-shirts, marketing kits, and more for our company (and even a tattoo for me personally!). I have nothing but the very highest recommendation for her for any of your projects - big or small. A billion thumbs up!
