About

When I started working as a freelance stage manager, I knew I needed a place where people could see samples of my work. It took me a few weeks to build my website that first summer, but through the process I discovered that a website can be more than just a personal advertisement. 

It can be a tool for reflecting on your artistic process. It can be a digital portfolio to show a prospective employer. It can be a place to store memories that you laugh over years later. If done well, it can be all of these things and more – all while being a tool to help you find and get the work you want.

I understand that creative professionals have different needs and believe their websites should reflect that. A musician might need her latest album highlighted, while a lighting designer wants their production photos front and center. A stage manager could highlight their paperwork, while a playwright may want to showcase script samples. 

At ArtifX Design, I will work with you to ensure that your website perfectly matches your needs. I have experience building sites for directors, actors, writers, stage managers, public speakers, and everything in between. In addition, each site comes with responsive support and the option for customized tutorials so that you can learn how to update the site yourself.
