Rhonda Smolarek, Founder & Lead Designer
Websites | Graphics
My mission in all that I do is to give the best of my knowledge, creativity and dedication to the people, organizations and families I serve.
I am ferociously curious, and competitive in the online representation of my clients in their industry. I want my clients at the tops of online searches. I want my clients to immediately appear as knowledgeable, trustworthy, leaders in their industry who are easy to approach.
I stay on top of my game as a website designer, graphics professional, Social Media expert. I constantly seek inspiration, effectiveness, and follow online trends. I approach every project with fresh and eager eyes. I research my client's competitors and similar experts nationwide to bring the most relevant, appropriate wording, keywords and visual appeal to the published product.
In 2017 I won an award from the CSBJ (Colorado Springs Business Journal) for technology innovation. My innovation was based on mobile marketing. I authored a book on my design which sells on Amazon and Kindle.
Marketing books and articles are a mainstay in my life and one thing that struck me early on was when an industry leader pointed out that online you are remarkable or forgettable. I observed that many websites look identical. I made it my purpose to design websites that hook the viewer quickly, cause them to pause. The longer a person stays at a website, the more likely they are to make contact.
I am the lead designer at Remarkable Design. I am always innovating, it comes from within as well as from constantly researching art and design from a variety of sources. If you have an idea, I would enjoy the challenge of bringing it to life.
I love to learn. I knew early on that I would be an eternal student and this permeates every area of my life. I try new recipes, listen to new songs, try new foods, travel to new places and constantly rearrange my furniture. This way of being plays out well in my website design and may be an element that separates me from my own competitors.
On A More Personal Note
I am a Marine Corps Veteran, a 4063 Software Engineer. I have taught high school and was honored to love other peoples children even when they were not being lovable. I have 2 young adult sons, one who is serving our country in the USAF, the other, an artist like me. In addition to graphic design, I draw and enjoy design in general. I have a miniature Shitzu, or she has me. I'm never sure which that is. As your brand ally, I'm a straight shooter, a team player and I rely on you to help me help you.
Integrity is my super-power.
