A one-woman design studio out to deliver the best online marketing to individuals and small businesses

Are you looking for a web designer who can handle your entire web project, from domain, to hosting, to design, to practical & useful functionality?

Wouldn’t it be convenient to have a digital marketer who could help you build your entire online presence—website, social media, and branding?

How about a partner to take your online marketing to the next level, with social media, email marketing, and analytics?

Hi, I'm Anna and I can help.


How can I help?


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.


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

FACT 91% of consumers check their email daily; it's the #1 direct channel in terms of daily use.

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


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


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


So this is pretty cool

Web Designer ✻ Digital Marketer ✻ Professional Coffee Drinker

I started aka design from a desire to create websites that work for your business. With aka design, you get a marketer who can help you define your vision, a designer who knows what looks good and what works on the web, and a developer who can bring that design to life—the whole kit and caboodle!

A great looking website is all well and good, but to help your business, your site needs to be discoverable and persuasive. To maximize your web presence, you need digital marketing. You know your business, I know online marketing—let me be your Digital Marketing Partner. Expanding your reach encompasses a killer website, search engine optimization (SEO), email marketing, social media marketing, and analytics. Together, we can create a strong online presence for your brand.

I get it—I'm a small business owner, too. I understand tight deadlines, small budgets, and grand ideas. I believe that providing excellent customer service, delivering quality work, and creating value are the basis of any lasting partnership. I am as excited about your business as you are. Let's do this!

Karen Truant, Maryland State Funeral Directors Association

Our new site is more engaging, informative, navigable, enticing, and very user friendly. Anna helped us by improving navigation, increasing online resources for consumers, adding more information for student and enhancing features for our events to showcase MSFDA’s meetings, seminars, programs and outings. Kudos to aka design for giving us the professional look with all of the "bells and whistles" that we were seeking.

Peggy Finnegan, Body Bloom Massage

Anna is a rock star at online marketing! She definitely has the brains, the experience, the creative vision and the nerdy technical skills that are absolutely essential to excel in her field. But for me it has been her trademark can-do-attitude, no-nonsense personality, consistent communication style, generous follow up support and crazy sense of humor that has made working with Anna such a pleasure.

In designing my new webpage, Anna encouraged my collaboration while introducing me to a wealth of wonderful ideas and cool options that I never even knew existed. Together we created a distinctive, multi-faceted and user friendly website that I’m extremely proud of. Now I feel completely confident in referring potential clients to my site because it truly reflects the essence of my business. Since the launch of my new website two years ago, my massage business has grown exponentially and I attribute much of that growth directly to the fact that my website really stands out from the crowd.
