Mara Davidson

Web & Graphic Designer, SEO Expert, Social Media Marketer, and all around online guru

I love making the web look beautiful.

I'm both a designer and coder by trade. I love taking someone's ideas and integrating it into a responsive, fully functioning website.

For the past year and a half I've worked for a company in Omaha, Nebraska redesigning their website, running their marketing team, and bringing their SEO up to par.

In my freetime I run an Etsy shop, and do a bit of freelance web design on the side. I love traveling and exploring new places. I'm always looking for my next great adventure!

Tim Kingsley Personal Website

Tim needed a website. I designed one for him.

This website is a responsive V-card style website. All of the content is laid out on one html page that a viewer can scroll through with that tabs at the top. I love the seamless layout of one page html websites. To check out the full site click here.

Marry Me Savvy Website & Blog

My good friend Candance, currently a blogger over at Nebraska Wedding Day asked me to help her create her own wedding blogging website.

I love the style she went with! We chose to keep everything minimal with a big bold saying across the front about love (the saying changes when you refresh the page). I built in social media links across the top and embedded a newsletter sign-up on the bottom.

Candance will be launching her website January 2014! Just in time for the new year! I can't wait for her to launch this lovely design!

Poster Savvy is an Etsy shop specializing in funny posters.

Since they do most of their sales on their Etsy shop they didn't need a huge fancy website. This site is simple with a products page, about page, and contact page. To check out the full site click here.

TransWood

For the past year I've worked for TransWood redesigning their website, getting their social media up and going, and running their marketing department.

TranWood wanted a completely responsive website that was easy to use. I created these large icons across the top to direct people to the most important links.

Plans Book

In 2012 I worked with Blue Inc. to create a plans book for a campaign they were designing for Nissan.

I was responsible for the design of this 20 page book. It's filled with tons of charts and graphics, making it super easy for the reader to understand the information.

Green Mile Theory
Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic.
