Portfolio and Testimonials
Some of my
Clients have said they love my process and my Website Preparation Workbook. They have gone from “no clear offer” or “no copy” to total clarity and lots of copy to choose from - and a kickass website as a result. Take a look.
What Clients are Saying
My experience of working with Mariela of Soul Business Design was phenomenal in every way. With a rare combination of warmth and professionalism, she created a safe space for me to discuss hopes, dreams, and concerns for my website.
She took time to get to know my vision, even providing clarifying exercises at points where I was uncertain, so that my website could reflect my passions and draw the type of clients I enjoy working with. It was fascinating to watch Mariela take the bits and pieces of my ideas that were overwhelming to me and put them into a cohesive, beautiful website that I could be proud of!
With Mariela, communication and interactions were prompt, meaningful, and reassuring. I could not be happier with the end result! I put a profile on Psychology Today that connects to my website, and actually had to change my status to “not accepting clients” because I was getting more responses than I was ready to handle. Without exception, each person who contacted me pointed to being impacted by my website, for which Mariela deserves all the credit. She is a kind, amazing professional who truly cares about each person she works with. Her artistry for website design is beyond comparison!
I loved working with Mariela on my website. She's a knowledgeable, creative, and talented partner.
I was worried about the different timezones, but it ended up not being a problem at all. She was really available and super easy to communicate with. It was awesome to have a completely new website in such a short amount of time. This would have taken me a year to do myself!! The overall quality of the website is so beautiful and I'm so so proud of it.
Mariela was able to really infuse my style and personality into the site, which is something I really appreciated. I'd definitely recommend Mariela to anyone who is looking for a web designer.
Before working with Mariela, I felt overwhelmed with all the tech and copy I had to create for my new website. I didn’t want to waste my time on Youtube trying to figure it out. I am so grateful to have found and worked with Mariela to set up my website. She provided clear guidelines and information to help me gather my content. Her template was super helpful in getting me organized and prepare for the launch. She was attentive to details and my feedback.
Communicating with her was easy. We also had great conversations throughout the week and it made me feel good to know that someone on the other side cares for me too.
And I’m so happy with my new digital home. I feel confident that I can point my audience to a professional & clean website that reflects me.
I highly recommend working with Mariela for setting up or redesigning your website.
I highly recommend Mariela if you need a website. I had a slight vision, no design experience, and not much tech knowledge. Mariela had resources to organize my thoughts and pull out of me what my brand and business is about. She used her knowledge and experience to teach me what works best and why. She is responsive and cares about the quality of my site as much as I do.
When my first attempt at copy was not the best effort, she gave me additional resources to help me pare down and simplify my message. In addition, she provides access to tutorials that she’s always looking to improve and helpful instructional videos when I have a question. I am so pleased and have received numerous feedback on how beautiful, simple, and easy to understand my site is. THANK YOU!!!
Mariela has been out of this world. She prepares you well to get your ideas down and preferences so she fully understands your vision and understands YOU. This way the final product is above par. She blew my website out of the ballpark. I could not be happier. She guides and steers you in the right direction, one you never knew existed!
I would highly recommend handing over your ideas and dreams for the most professional, safe, and workable website!
Thank you!! From my heart!
I would be happy to recommend you as a website designer. I didn't really like my website before and I think it is visually pleasing now. I like the prework that you had me do- it made me think about what I wanted the website to communicate and how I wanted it to be communicated. It made me think about color and font and introduced me to great new tools. The website flows much better and is quicker and more responsive.
Mariela helped me create a beautiful brand new website. I had struggled for 2 years and working with her, we talked through my branding and my color choices. She has made me a beautiful website that I enjoy looking at. I can’t say how much I appreciate the time and effort she put into it.
