I knew what kind of business I wanted, I just didn't know how to represent it visually.
Samantha took the time to understand the type of business I have. I like the fact she asked questions and I believe this helped her to be able to design a website that reflected my personality in a professional and personal way. Samantha made what seemed like an overwhelming task enjoyable. With each step of the process, I was able to not only see the vision come together, it actually helped me to become more focused and excited about what I wanted my website and business to become. In light of the fact I did not feel confident about how I was originally representing my business, I struggled to even promote it. Since the redesign of the website, it has given me a renewed sense of pride in what I do.

Going into my design, I had a general idea of what I wanted everything to look like but had a hard time overthinking specifics.
One of the wonderful things about working with Samantha is that she is extremely organized and timeline oriented. You will never have to wait on her to get a project done. She's very accessible and makes it easy to schedule phone calls and meetings and goes above and beyond to make sure you are happy with the progress. I was able to see my options before making final decisions at various stages of the branding process - from choosing my color palette, fonts, graphics, website layout, and overall visual aesthetic of both my brand and website - I never felt pressured to make a decision and just settle. Samantha made the revision aspect of every part of the project very easy and took every care to make sure I was happy with my brand. It was important to her that it would be the best reflection of what I wanted my company to "look" like - and making my brand as timeless as possible.

My website is now easier to update after Samantha set up templates for me.
I needed to update my website, but didn't have time to design and was getting frustrated with the tech. Samantha was organized and so kind and easy to work with!

Samantha really works with you to make sure that your design really reflects your business.
I have spoken with people and worked with other businesses that make you feel like you are just a paycheck or your business is just another job, but Samantha really made me feel like she cared about my passion and my goals. She really understands how hard it is to let go of aspects of your business and put something as important as the face you present to the world in someone else's hands. And she does not take her role lightly. I hope to continue working with her and Lemon and the Sea for a long time and would recommend her to anyone.

Samantha a great communicator, completely professional and an absolute joy to work with.
I received a strong recommendation and needed a Squarespace expert who could help be rebuild my former WordPress website in a jiffy! She is quick, efficient, responsive, proactive and nice. It's also very easy to communicate with her and she really listens to feedback! She has exceeded my expectations on every level. I am so happy, and fortunate, to have found Samantha.

My website was up and running quickly so I could benefit from the new site design.
The clarity of Samantha's communication and rapid turnaround on questions and feedback gave me the confidence she would take care of all the details. She was willing to do her homework to solve any issues, and really listened well to feedback while providing her own input and expertise to collaborate towards a great finished product.

I had absolutely no clue what I wanted, but somehow she created the most perfect design.
Working with Lemon and the Sea was so easy! She took the information I gave her and ran with it to create a Welcome Pack that was exactly what my brand needed.

This was one of the simplest, quickest, and most helpful processes I have been through.
Everything was spelled out easily for me (someone who has no idea how to make a website!) The correspondence between us was always quick and communicated well. I enjoyed collaborating and being able to make some of the design decisions myself while still having such strong guidance. I really feel like this will be a long-lasting tool for my career and it all happened so fast!

There were a few issues with my web site that I couldn't manage on my own and needed to hire out. Yet I was struggling to find someone who would do light projects instead of a full blown site.
Samantha was prompt to reply, professional in our interactions and proficient - I knew that I could trust her to do the work she said she could do in the timeframe she said she could do it. Since my project was so small and specific, I loved that she communicated so well and was efficient since I was on a much tighter timeline than I'd initially anticipated. Samantha doesn’t fit the stereotypes of the artist/creative who struggles with deadlines and completing work. She is the opposite: organized, efficient and prompt in the delivery of everything. I really appreciated that after working with a number of creatives lately who did succumb to that freelancer stereotype.

I love having a more cohesive look for my brand on social media and my website!
Samantha delivered the graphics in a very efficient and timely manner into a Google Drive that was easy to access and download from. She completed revisions quickly and really understood my vision for the graphics I wanted to create. It felt like I was working with a friend! I loved having a personal touch and felt like I could trust her with the project.

Samantha delivers what she promises. I highly recommend her.
Samantha was wonderful to work with. She’s detail orientated, organized, and dependable. Our work together began with a series of questionnaires, which were detailed and insightful; in fact, they helped me clarify what I wanted in my own mind so I could more clearly communicate what I wanted and needed from her. After she began to build my website, she kept me informed, and I watched what she did, step-by-step. During that process, she continued to consult with me about my likes and dislikes, and she was never impatient when I made requests or ask for changes. We communicated regularly by phone and email. She answered all my questions promptly, and she kept to the timeline she promised.

Samantha will work with you and create exactly what you are looking for.
She also makes sure you are part of the process to know what is going on with your product. She used our basic ideas and enhanced them to create the finished product that we LOVED. She is also personable, easy to talk to, and quick at responding.
– Robin Schrecengost
It felt easy to express what I wanted and she was able to take that and create something truly beautiful.
I loved the process Samantha set up. We were in constant communication and she went above and beyond to give me a variety of options until I decided on what I wanted.

Samantha is great and running with your ideas and using her creative expertise to make something awesome.
Samantha was super easy to work with. She made the jumbled up mess in my head come to life and kept making adjustments and corrections until I was completely satisfied with the end product!
