I’m a full-stack web designer who works with clients on a freelance basis. I use a three step approach for all aspects of my work:
"We had lots of ideas about how we wanted our website to function. Some were detailed and thought through when we approached Mary-Ann, but others were not at all. Mary-Ann was incredibly helpful (and patient) in walking us through really consolidating all of our ideas and creating a streamlined and robust site.
I really appreciated the timeline Mary-Ann proposed after our initial meeting and was so impressed at how well she stuck to it, even in the midst of a global pandemic! She was great at keeping me on track with providing the pieces of information to enable her to continue moving forward. It's also been really helpful to have her continue working with us once the site went live to be able to problem-solve and answer questions as they come up. She is always very responsive and ready to help whenever we need it.
We are so happy with the site Mary-Ann created for us. I would 100% recommend Mary-Ann for website development - very knowledgeable and such a pleasure to work with."

"Mary-Ann is hands down the best contractor I've used throughout my marketing career. She has the ability to collaborate on a vision, finding ways to improve the output and make the end result work even harder for her client and the end consumer. Mary-Ann is both incredibly creative with an excellent eye for detail as well as extremely organized and solutions oriented. She drove the project seamlessly and was always open to ideas and feedback that fueled innovation. Turner Mining Group moved through three major projects (Branding, Employee Portal and External Website) in just 8 months time. As a client looking to move quickly yet effectively, Mary-Ann managed the project at a very efficient clip. Finally, Mary-Ann is a delight to work with. Her positive attitude brought excitement to each phase of the project and kept us motivated to move toward the final result. We couldn't be more pleased with our collective work."
— Tracy O'Brien, Chief Marketing Officer at Turner Mining Group
"Where do I start...In my career, I've worked with many designers and none come close to Mary-Ann. We contracted her to re-build our website and employee intranet. From inception to final delivery, her efficiency, dedication and end results exceeded our expectations. I've never been prouder to showcase a new site to coworkers and clients. I highly recommend Mary-Ann to all professionals looking to create a site worth visiting."
— Jess Sweetin, Content Marketing Manager at Turner Mining Group
"I discovered Zykin Design while viewing one of her customers websites, immediately i contacted her and started the planning process. From the initial planning and scheduling the timeline, it was a smooth process with plenty of communication which i really appreciated. They absolutely met and exceed my expectations for what i had envisioned the website to be. I will definitely be contacting them in the future for more projects to help push my business to the next level!!"
