About Jill Anderson

Call me a geek, but my favorite thing to do is to take a design that we create together and make it come alive on the web.

It all started one day in 2002 when a friend was launching a festival and needed a logo. Having never designed a logo before, of course, I said, “I’ll do it!” And that’s when I fell in love with design.

In the summer of 2005, I packed my bags and headed to New York to design books for Barnes & Noble Publishing. It was an awesome learning experience, but my heart was homesick for my friends and family in Atlanta. So I moved back and started my full-time freelance career in January 2007.

Gradually, I shifted gears from print to web design (because code is fun!). And, now I spend the day making creative businesses look fabulous online. I love my job! And love that I’m becoming known as the designer’s web designer.

When I’m not designing and coding away on my Mac, I most love hanging out with my husband, son, and daughter. And cat, Peanut, the chief paperweight.

Cheers!

About You & My Values

Here are my core values—those items that are important to me and the way I do business. It may seem odd this section is called “About You.” Read on to find out why.

Work-life Balance

I work 9:30 a.m.–5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Don’t ask me to work on the weekends. And, I won’t ask you to do so either. I love my job, but at the end of the day, it’s just a job I do to create a better life for my family. I’m a mother and wife first, a web designer second. We will get along very well if you have a life outside of work too.

Clarity

When we both are up front about our expectations and goals, everyone wins! I like to be really transparent in my business and give it to you straightforward. So, let’s stay in touch often (I love email!) and be realistic about our objectives. If you are clear in your communication and organization, we will be best friends.

Innovation

I love clients who are open to the latest trends and technologies on the web. Don’t get hung up on the old way of doing things. Branch out—take a chance. Let’s try new and creative things on your website.

Respect

You be nice, and I’ll be nice. ’Nuff said.

These are good people who will take excellent care of you. Disclosure: I may receive commissions made through these links.
