Experienced Web Site Consultant and Graphic Designer
Lisa Gray and Kayo Parsons-Korn are the principal designers at Rareheron Web Design. They are devoted to helping you bring your unique message and vision to the world through your Web site!
Web Site design consultant Lisa Gray specializes in developing highly functional Web sites, emphasizing both usability and design. Lisa works closely with you to organize your Web site content into an overall structure that is intuitive and readable, making it easy for your visitors to stay on your site at length. Lisa believes in maintaining relationships with clients over time to keep your site fresh and alive. She prioritizes customer service so you can feel confident that she will be available to discuss your Web site needs.
In addition to being project manager on all projects, Lisa is our lead search engine and social media marketer.
Graphic artist Kayo Parsons-Korn has been doing graphic design for the Web since 1995. She is particularly intuitive and creative when it comes to designing the "look and feel" of your new Web site. Her designs reflect your organization's purpose and message.
After the design is complete, Kayo switches to her left brain and codes the style sheets and templates used to create a site's pages. She also does our Flash work and is a whiz with Photoshop.
Programmer Tom Kerns joins us on sites that include forms or call for a database application. Tom is particularly astute at asking the right questions to make sure the capabilities our clients need are built in up front. We're always amazed at how quickly Tom turns jobs around. Tom also hosts many of our sites through his company Tundra Technologies.
We use Dreamweaver to build your Web site, editing content for readability and pleasing layout, and we handle ongoing Web site maintenance. Rareheron also helps with domain name registration, Web hosting, and email setups for our clients.
Previous owner Andrea Drury, who retired in July, 2012, anticipates an active and fun retirement after more than 14 years with Rareheron Web Design. Andrea is thrilled that Lisa Gray is Rareheron's new owner and project manager. Clients are happy, too, knowing that the excellent Web design experience they've had with Rareheron will continue under Lisa's direction.
