A little about what I do
CurlyHost LLC is a WordPress Web Design and Development firm servicing Grand Rapids businesses, artisans and non-profits since 2010. I work with business owners, designers and project managers to help bring their website to life. I help make sense of the wild world-wide web. There’s a lot of stuff out there – I’d like to help you sort through it.
And that’s what makes me different from other web design and development firms and freelancers out there. After I create your site, instead of contacting me for every update, I’ll make sure you understand what updating and maintaining your site looks like. I want you to go back and make changes when you’d like. Within no time you’ll become your own website guru.
Here’s the deal. I want you to have an amazing, dynamic website, I really do. I also want to take away the scary nature of maintaining your own website. YOU CAN DO IT!
WordPress sites are an ideal solution for any kind of website, providing necessary functionality and layout to make your site stand out from the rest. WordPress features allow you to carry out any vision you might have about your website. Learning a few basics of WordPress is not that bad once you have a few tools and have someone to help you.
My prices vary depending on how much content and theme customization you need. Do you need a logo? Images formatted? Body copy written? Yep, I can help with that too.
I love storytelling; learning about different cultures and beliefs and ways of life; figuring out their intricacies and how they differ or are similar from my own. And then I love transforming all that information into a really amazing website for my clients.
Your business has a story, your art has a story, your non-profit has a story, your music has a story, your idea has a story and it should be told and I want to tell it. Through a killer website, consistent social media, and an online marketing strategy, we can make that happen. But first we need to get to know each other.
So, contact me, let’s grab some coffee, and chat about the future of your website.
I am most often contacted by business owners who are looking for a web solution that will grow with them. With my one on one tutorials and guidance, their website becomes something they can update and change as time goes on. They are in the driver’s seat and get to control their website’s fate.
Having a professional designer do all the storytelling, design and conceptual work is often the best solution for a business really trying to stand out from all the rest. Designers typically will develop the relationship with the client and contact me to make their web creations come to life.
When working on a complex project, a project manager can a fabulous way to go. A project manager will develop a relationship with a client, designer and developer and will communicate those goals in the appropriate language ensuring the project comes to life on time and within budget.
Let's get to know each other
My name is Andrea Napierkowski and I’ve been a passionate learner and social butterfly since I was a kid. I love social media, documentaries, being with people, and cradling my little Macbook Pro. Hanging out with idea people and small business owners is one of my favorite pastimes.
I create customizable websites with WordPress that puts the power of updating sites back into the hands of the business owner, entrepreneur, artist, and non-profit organization.
Helping new and interesting people organize and communicate their visions through great, professional-looking websites is an exciting pastime and job!
So let’s hang out, grab some coffee and come up with something cool for you.
