About New Orleans Web Design Studio, LLC
Who We Are & What We Do
NOWDS is owned and operated solely by Jennifer Smith Freire, A New Orleans native who works from her home-based office in Metairie. In her early design years (late 1990’s), she attended NOCCA and The University of New Orleans. In 2003 she received her B.A. in Fine Arts and pursued a career in website design. She brings to the table over 15 years of graphic design, photography, and website design, and various coding technologies. She maintains her knowledge and stays up to date on the latest design trends by participating in online forums with web developers worldwide.
Jennifer started NOWDS shortly after Hurricane Katrina in 2005 when she noticed a rapidly growing need for local web design companies. Rather than seeking a job with another firm, she decided to start her own business and has never looked back. Jennifer provides all services offered through NOWDS. She proudly designs everything from start to finish and has never outsourced a single project.
Jennifer’s hobbies include home improvement projects, tracking satellites, learning about ancient history, watching any show with Josh Gates, painting, drawing, and pretty much anything that involves creativity and/or critical thinking. She spends her free time with her family and friends, and she loves going on adventures, even if that means taking the kids on a nature walk.
More than Web Design, How We Stand Out
When you contract New Orleans Web Design Studio for your website needs, you get more than just a website. We take the time to learn about you and your business’ needs, and we develop your website with various considerations like search engine visibility, your customer base, social networking and driving traffic to your site. We even make sure your images for your facebook page utilize the proper dimensions so they don’t get cropped off. That’s some serious attention to detail, and there’s no DIY web design software that can do that!
