Who we are

One girl, one computer, big results. Webdesigner and front end developer with 15 + years of professional experience specializing in custom website design and WordPress development.

What we do

How we do it

Why Choose Us

No outsourcing here - from start to finish all work is completed in-house. We are based in Halfmoon Bay on the BC Sunshine Coast, but welcome work in Vancouver, Whistler, Pemberton, Squamish and abroad.


My story? I graduated from University with BA (Hons) Psychology — but instead of pursuing this degree, I remained intrigued by the Computer Science courses I had taken which had introduced me to the world of website design… and since then there has been no going back. Since 2000, I have been actively involved in the design and development of websites. As a freelance designer, I worked subcontract jobs, built my portfolio designing for others and gained valuable experience. I now run a small design company based on a passion to create modern, beautiful and professional website designs.


In a world where websites require no HTML knowledge, and “you can do it yourself in 5 minutes” … it can’t hurt to remember the days where code was written by hand, required a calculator and some decent skills. I started out designing and developing all my own websites from scratch, learning the ins and outs of how HTML works and why. This has given me great insight when building my favourite type of sites – WordPress – one of the most popular and awesome CMS around. The combination of up to date responsive design combined with the knowledge and skill of the good old days produces some pretty big results.


Originally from Kenora / Lake of the Woods, I left for the West Coast shortly after graduating University. After living in Whistler and Pemberton for 15 years, I have now settled in the Sunshine Coast community of Halfmoon Bay, which I enjoy with my talented graffiti artist husband Alex and daughters Lucy & Jade.


We don’t do it all.  Instead we specialize in what we love, and our services reflect what we are good at.


We design and custom develop beautiful, modern websites. We are a small business that enjoys working with other small businesses … and the larger ones, too. The majority of our clients are small to medium companies from locations ranging from the Sunshine Coast, Sea to Sky Corridor, stretching to Ontario and beyond. We’re creative and have tons of new ideas to share about how to improve your website. See below our list of services and see how we can help you.

Website Development

We like to keep things clean, simple and easy to navigate. It can’t just look pretty – it has to be functional, too. All of our responsive sites are built using WordPress CMS, one of the most popular content management applications around. Easily update your website through an admin panel using any web browser – no software required.

Website Maitenance

For those clients who need additional support, as-needed maintenance helps keep your site fresh, and keeps your viewers coming back. Maintenance work is billed by the minute so you only pay for what you requested. We have a 5 minute minimum per request, so being organized can help reduce costs.

Monitor Traffic

Know who is visiting your site and from where. All projects include set-up of a Google Analytics account so you can be informed of the details of your website’s visitors. Login to your account and view the information about your website traffic and stats, and gain insight into how your website is performing.

SEO Friendly

Each website is built with the basic components that make them easy to index: Page titles and URLs that are descriptive and SEO friendly, appropriate alt text for images, and proper meta tags. You also have the ability to easily make your own SEO edits via installed WordPress plugins.


All projects include a manual with detailed instructions specific to your premium WordPress theme. We also have an extensive help file with many common questions to assist clients. Don’t be shy – we also provide technical support via email – from the person who designed your site and knows it best.

Customer Service

Get to know us. You might be surprised by how promptly your emails and questions are answered (in a language you can understand), how quickly your edits are completed and how much we care about your website. Read testimonials to see what clients had to say about working with ink.


All WordPress websites developed by ink are customized. We don’t just take a template, change the colours and add your logo. Instead, websites are built with your specific needs in mind so your website is tailored especially for you. All sites are built with responsive design that will adapt cross a wide range of devices (from desktop computer monitors to mobile phones, tablets, etc). The end result is a better experience for the end-user and a better ranking for you with Google.

Your complete web package will depend on the scope of the project (complexity, specific features / functions, total pages required and the number of revisions). Prices are based by the hour, but we bill by the minute so you only pay for the work that is needed. When you receive a free estimate from ink, all of the below points are included in the final projected cost – and we stick firm to our estimates unless the project changes mid-scope, in which the client will be informed of ahead of time. We believe that great design matters – and is an investment in your business.

  • Free virtual initial Consultation (phone / email) – where I gather the facts about your website goals and needs
  • 2 Responsive WordPress design concepts – Home page and Secondary page
  • Content Management System – Update website yourself using WordPress, one of the most popular content management applications around.
  • Contact Form –  Captcha-protected to reduce spam
  • Security – All WordPress sites are protected with security plugins to prevent any malicious attacks.
  • Automatic Backup – Scheduled weekly and monthly database backups.
  • Website Statistics – We will set you up with full access to the details of your website’s traffic by Google Analytics, top-notch free application that will report data about your website.
  • SEO Preparation – Each website is built with the basic components that make them easy to index: Page titles and URLs that are descriptive and SEO friendly, appropriate alt text for images, and proper meta tags. You also have the ability to easily make your own SEO edits via installed WordPress plugins.
  • Creation of sitemap.XML. The Sitemap.xml file is a standard protocol for listing all the URLs that are contained within your website. It gives web spiders like Googlebot a better understanding of your website’s structure.
    note: When clients are eager for additional search engine optimization (seo) work I always recommend to consult with a company who specializes in this service. Ask for details.

  • Estimates include up to 1.5 hours of revisions. Actual review time will vary depending on the number and type of changes and/or final edits required.
  • Set up 301 URL redirects (for redesigns) so there are no negative SEO implications with the redesign.
  • 404 Error Handling Page.
  • Page Speed Analysis
  • Website is formatted for mobile devices and tested at various resolutions (mobile/tablet/laptop/desktop).
  • Custom Favicon.
  • Migration of the new site to your server with little to no downtime.
  • A custom manual with instructions specific to your theme is provided upon completion of project. We also have an extensive online help file with many common questions and graphics to assist clients.
  • Set-up Hosting and Domain names, email addresses on your behalf (if required) so you always have control of your domain name, hosting, and website.
  • Submit your site to Google (new sites).
  • Social Media integration (Facebook / Twitter / Google+ / LinkedIn, etc).
  • Technical Support via Email.
  • We Guarantee it! We warranty all work/programmed code for a period of 1 month after final website launch and if there are any needed tweaks, we will fix it at no cost.

The projected estimate covers virtual / phone meetings only as due to the nature of this work, the majority of our clients don’t require in-person meetings. Meeting in person for Sunshine Coast clients is available at a cost of $85/hour.



Along the way we have met some great people and love our clients – and they love us, too! Read below what happy ink clients are saying, or read more reviews on LinkedIn.


We love hearing from new prospective clients! Contact Chantal @ ink. to discuss your website needs and options. Prefer to chat by phone? We are not your standard 9-5. Please send us an email to schedule a time to connect.


We are not a big do-it-all company – customer service is a high priority, and for that reason I don’t take on too many projects at once. From start to finish, your website is created and built by the same designer who understands your vision from our initial consultation. No outsourcing here – all work is completed in-house. I place high importance on properly gauging my schedule and successfully reaching project deadlines.


At this time I am accepting new clients/design projects, but office hours can be unscheduled. We are not your standard 9-5 and phone meetings require advance notice and scheduling. We will not be a good fit if you need lots of phone calls on a short notice. Most projects are conducted via email as this gives me more flexibility with scheduling and workload. I understand than in order for a design project to be successful, we need to be a good overall fit. If the above works for you, I am happy to work with you!

Spring 2018 office hours: Tues – Fri from 9am-2pm.


Please see the chart below which indicates the next available timeslot for new websites or redesigns.

If this timeline works for your schedule, please contact Chantal regarding a quote or complete the free online quote request form.

REQUEST A FREE PROJECT ESTIMATE. No obligation. We work hard to respond to all quote inquires within 2 business days.


We are located in the oceanside community of Halfmoon Bay, on the beautiful Sunshine Coast, BC – but welcome clients from abroad.
