Norja Vanderelst

Creative Director • Web Designer

Objective: I am not just a web designer...anyone can make a website these days... I come with business ideas as I have been in business for self for over 25 years. I have official training in the trade (est. 2009). I can code from scratch, but my clients seem to have a need for Self-Hosted WordPress sites as they do simple updates themselves if they chose to do so. It is a versatile platform to suit most small to medium business owner's needs.

I am a hard-working, goal oriented person, and most will say I have a great sense of humor as well. My main goal is to give honest advice during consultations, deliver a great product, along with excellent customer service.

Let's workin the best possible way for both of us.
