Katie is the best. She made all of the nuts and bolts so easy for us. She is willing to work at your pace and gives you quality advice and guidance along the way. Her prices are more than reasonable. We will be expanding our relation with 1 Happy Place very soon and we are looking forward to it! Go forward with confidence.

Katie Ayres is a web developer/designer who I highly recommend. She is well informed and professional in her field of expertise with a kind and patient manner. We worked closely together to redesign my website which I simply Love, as it represents me personally and as an artist. Thank you so much Katie.

My experience with 1 Happy Place was beyond my greatest expectations. I came across the talented Ms. Ayres and her company 1 Happy Place when I saw the website she created for my good friend, Tracey Lee Cassin. Instantly, I knew I wanted Ms. Ayres to develop a series of websites for me and she delivered masterfully! The new site which honors my great-grandaunt, Oscar-winning actress Hattie McDaniel, has received great reviews from friends and colleagues (including my publicist team). 1 Happy Place is flexible, creative, professional, and honest. Working with Katie Ayres has been an amazing journey and in the process I have made a most treasured friend. I am looking forward to our next web development projects in 2021 and beyond. Thank you Katie and 1 Happy Place… you are THE BEST!!!

I was fortunate enough to find Katie who knows how to feature my work to its greatest potential. Not only is Katie creative, but she is one the most organized professionals I’ve ever encountered. And to top it off she is very kind. The process was absolutely seamless.

I love my new website! Katie is a very professional, understanding and diligent web designer. I am not very technologically oriented and needed a lot of help putting together my thoughts and ideas. Katie was on target and put together my ideas along with her professional opinion; needless to say, my website has been a hit. I highly recommend 1 Happy Place; it’s name says it all! You will be more than happy with the results.

This is the fourth contact I have received from the website for work-related services (since Katie built it). My old website never generated any contacts.

— Elizabeth Hughes

Thank you, Katie for your expertise and kindness. You made all this technical stuff easy to understand. I so appreciate you solving my problem.

With Katie and 1 Happy Place, I have amazing support at a reasonable price, which leaves me free to focus on what I love – making artwork. Katie Ayres has my heartfelt and top recommendation for her services.

— Lynda Durham

Some of you have noted that my new personal website is eye catching and easy to navigate, and I’d like to give credit to Katie. In a system of five stars for reviews, I’d actually like to register a six-star review of 1 Happy Place, the amazing web design enterprise of Katie Ayres.

Not only her extraordinary skills in the visual design of my new website but also her deep experience with the nuts and bolts of the web have made the process of replacing a previously creaky and hack-able personal website with one that delights me every time I interact with it. She is a pleasure to work with — professional, responsive, thorough.

— Annie Shaver-Crandell

I am extremely satisfied. If you are looking for a professional, reasonably priced website I highly recommend 1 Happy Place.

— Elliot Appel

Katie Ayres contacted me shortly after last year’s WLAST studio tour. After many (unsatisfactory) attempts at minding my website and basically giving up, Katie came to my studio. She was and still is very open and truthful about her profession, and explaining what exactly my professional needs are in the digital space. My regard for her enthusiasm and appreciation of an artists work, translates to a beautiful user-friendly website. It is a comfort to have this important business aspect professionally handled for me by Katie.

— Judith Thompson

I enlisted the services of Katie at ‘1 Happy Place’ to create a professional artist website. Not only did she do this, she incorporated into the design, links to my market places, art blog, as well as my home and garden blog. Our business relationship was seamless even though I am situated in New Zealand and she in the USA. I would definitely recommend Katie’s web design packages (great choices), and her amazing skill base to anyone looking to create a new website. I am so very happy with mine and the future website maintenance service Katie offers.
