How can I help?

Web

So you want a website. You've come to the right place. Have you secured a domain name? How about site hosting? Have you considered a blog? Is this going to be an E-commerce site? We've got a lot to talk about, but fear not: I've got this covered.

Email

FACT Email marketing has an ROI of 4,300%.

FACT 66% of consumers have made a purchase online as a result of an email marketing message.

Branding

Your brand is everything that encompasses your logo, your colors, your voice. It's who you are and what you're about. Are you quarky? Are you B2B? Your brand starts with a logo, but expands to so much more. Make your mark on the world!

Print

Business cards, brochures, flyers, banners...all those items that make up offline marketing. Good marketing is cohesive marketing: constantly reinforcing your brand.

Smart and Good Looking...Websites

Anna K. Amendolare

Designer ✻ Coder ✻ Marketer

I started aka design from a passion to design and then build websites that make an impact. With aka design, you get both a web designer who knows design, color theory, and white space and a web developer who can bring that design to the web.

But, a great looking website won't help your business if it's not discoverable and converting. To take it to the next level, you and I must partner-up: you know your business, I know the tools. Expanding your reach encompasses a killer website, SEO optimization, email marketing, social media marketing, and analytics. Together, we can create a strong online presence.

As a small business owner I understand tight deadlines, small budgets, and grand ideas. I am a perfectionist at heart, and I believe that providing excellent customer service, quality, and value is essential.

People Are Talking About Me

Sarah K., Coach Sarah K

Anna is hands down one of the most talented professionals I have worked with as a small business owner. I was looking to establish an online presence for my company, and her skills in graphic design proved tremendously helpful. One of the things that really impressed me about her is her ability to meld my goal and vision with what the site actually looked like. She was very patient with me as I worked through what I wanted my site to look like, and by asking good questions, she helped me better define the message and image I wanted to send to the public. She then worked with me to ensure that the website accurately reflected my business and me. She is incredibly dedicated and passionate about her role in helping your business grow and in making your website an integral part of that effort-it feels like it isn't just a job for her, but something she truly cares about and commits to making successful. I cannot recommend her highly enough! I will absolutely contact her again for her services!

I contacted Anna to help me rebuild my website. I knew I did not have the patience, time, or creativity to take on this project myself. I searched through many web designer's websites and found that the eye appeal and user friendly website Anna created for herself was exactly what I was going for. From the first email, she helped me stay focused and give ideas of what I was looking for in my site. The end result was better than I could have imagined. Anna has continued to improve my site and help me build a greater web presence since we launched the site. I am so please to be working with such a talented woman. She far exceeds my expectation and would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for help with their website. Thank you for everything you do and continue to do for me Anna!

Don Ferris, Schipperhaven & Schipperhaven: Journey

Anna and I have been working together since 2006. I retained her first to produce a new website for the Annapolis Summer Garden Theatre and subsequently worked with her to design my own personal website, schipperhaven.org. Both of these sites have been through multiple updates and renewals.

Her services have been 10-plus since the get-go. Not only has she provided excellent ideas at the startup of each project, she constantly creates and installs improvements, from platform to creative to additional widgets and techniques. At the same time, she listens carefully to client input and goes out of her way to implement it.

During our long association, Anna has had other employment infringe on her commitment to her own projects. Nevertheless, she has been extremely conscious of and able to meet deadlines. As a full-time entrepreneur, she can only better that response.

I recommend her unconditionally.
