Hi, I‘m Melissa (Ek) Taylor!
I’m the owner and creative mind of ekMEDIA. My career started as a layout designer at a magazine in Virginia Beach and has grown into a successful independent design business…can you believe I’ve been doing this since 1998?!
I specialize in WordPress websites, clean layout, and fast turnaround, all on time and within budget. I work with a wide-range of clients from the locally owned businesses to worldwide powerhouses. My clients are scattered across the United States with the majority of them in my home state of Texas (yeehaw!).
I love the challenge of a new project; finding the best way to convey information to that client’s customers, investigating how to work around project speed bumps, and navigating technical issues.
I also provide other design services including:
Infographic design: Long or short form infographic design for print or web
Print design: Business Cards, Logo Design, Letterhead, PowerPoint Template Design
Email marketing: Designing & coding email blasts; Integrating into your email solution
Banner advertising design: Animated GIF banners; Static banner ad design
Are we a good fit? Read this to find out:
My ideal client:
- Companies who need help with print design or website maintenance on a regular basis
- Marketing agencies or companies who need a designer to supplement their in-house staff
- Marketing or design agencies who are looking for a freelance WordPress website builder
- Businesses looking for a website design or redesign who don’t have those resources in-house
Not a great client for me:
- Clients who need heavy development / database work or custom coding (i.e. – ASP, .net, custom PHP development).
- Clients who need an app developed (an app is NOT the same as a website)
- Companies looking to pay in ‘exposure’ or ‘future work’ or who need pro bono work done
