Ensuring the survival of your ideas and the work they inspire requires a trustworthy compass. We work with you to craft consistent, coherent communication for your business.
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,
What does compassionately listening look like? What does help look and feel like to them?
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 Ideas Solve Problems
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 are you seeking for them?
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 here 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 won’t attract the right people, we invite you to bring humanity to your business–the beauty that led you here, and the ways you inhabit and care about the stories of your customers.

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.

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.
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.

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.
