Website Design | Susin Nielsen

THE CHALLENGE
To create a fun, engaging, modern and responsive website for author Susin Nielsen. Susin writes for middle grade and young adult readers, and she wanted a website that could be appropriate for both her readers, and her professional connections in the writing world. She also wanted to do updates herself, and maintain a blog that was integrated into her website. Susin had an existing website on another platform, and a separate blog, and needed everything integrated into one easy to access (and update) location.
.
THE SOLUTION
We used WordPress to build Susin a site that was modern, fun and just a little sassy! We pulled from existing content and updated where necessary, and added completely new chunks in some places. In order to make it easy for Susin to perform updates, we held a coaching session on how to add articles to her blog and how to make changes to the rest of the website. And now we change a few elements each time a new book comes out to give it a fresh look to match her latest release!

THE OUTCOME
"After a couple of false starts, I was referred to Crystal. Working with her was a dream come true. Even though I’m a writer I couldn’t articulate very well what I was looking for – yet somehow she gleaned what I meant, and built the exact site I wanted – even though I didn’t know it was what I’d wanted till I’d seen it!"
