Assuring the survival of your ideas in a blurry world requires a reliable compass and a twist of the lens for sharper focus. We work with you to craft consistent, coherent communication for your business or nonprofit.
When skill is combined with a compassionate, listening ear attuned to the needs of your audience, remarkable things can happen. A good question to ask is,
How do I authentically connect? Why and how do I serve?
Tell a Story
Research has shown what storytellers have known all along: Telling honest, real-life stories will make your ideas, products or services more relatable and memorable.
Beautiful Designs Are Clearly Designed
Design is not art. Design is problem-solving.
As professional web designers, we understand that beautiful design must reach deeper than a slick layout and some pretty pictures. We’re passionate about clearly understanding you and your business so both the words and the visuals touch the hearts and minds of your audience.
Why do you need a website or presentation? What are your goals? Who is this for? What change is this journey for?
Your answers to these questions lay an intelligent and strategic foundation for the the visual puzzle we will are seeking to solve.
Clearly Serving Two Heroes
There are two heroes in the Clearly Presentable story:
You and Your Hero.
From the very outset of our journey together we pay close attention to the people you are currently serving and seeking to serve. Because service–and the positive changes which natural spring from it–is what brought you to our businesses in the first place.
Curiosity is key as we focus in on the main characters of your business story–and it’s a fun and creative process we want to take you on. Instead of forcing yourself to look like everyone else in an oversaturated field using overly salesy marketing techniques which have zero appeal, we invite you to bring humanity to your business–the beauty of what got you here, and the ways you inhabit and care about the stories of your customers.
Serving clients across the planet and face-to-face

Days before I was to give an important presentation at a cultural/educational event that was to be filmed and viewed by more than two hundred members of an international museum-sponsored cultural organization, I learned that a Powerpoint component was expected. The program needed to be creative, educational, and inspiring. And, it needed to be ready in a week. I knew what I wanted the visuals to convey but I did not know how to manifest my ideas. Clearly Presentable worked with considerable constraints to build a strong, innovative, and wildly attractive product. In addition, she managed to instill in me a sense of confidence in my ability to successfully combine my talk with the new technology that is intimidating to me. I am grateful for her creative input and inspired coaching. It transformed what would have been a good presentation into a great presentation that has led to several unexpected and very welcome professional opportunities.

Since Susan Preston waved her magic wand over our website a few years ago we have seen a yearly increase in applications for our summer chamber music program. The Taos School of Music is beyond delighted with Clearly Presentable.

Don’t work with Susan if you only want to throw something up on the web without investing much of your time. But if you want to create a marketing machine for your business that’s truly exceptional I advise you to beg for a place on her calendar.
Susan has been tremendously helpful to me in recent weeks. When we first met for my website audit, I was only expecting some helpful tips for my website. I have received so much more. Susan is that rare breed of part artist, part visionary and part marketing genius. She brings wit and empathy and expertise to every interaction I have with her, and I leave each conversation with more clarity on understanding my customer in a way that makes them want to hear from me.

Susan made the process fun. OK, it was work, but it was fun work, made so by her creative ideas, feedback on the copy I wrote and her responsiveness to my thoughts about the design she developed. We really helped each other do our best.
My site is evolving as I and my business grow and change, and I look forward to continue working with Susan on keeping it up-to-date and relevant.
