Christine Thatcher Designing To Delight Creator

My approach to good design is intentionally simple.

This focus on simplicity and intentionality is at the heart of everything I do, from the way I collaborate with clients to the way I teach designers in this community. I believe in stripping away the unnecessary to focus on what’s truly important. By leaving behind the fluff, I’m able to give designers like you straightforward solutions to common challenges and struggles.

As an experienced designer and creative director (25+ years), I’ve gathered wisdom from a variety of client situations. I’ve honed my collaborative web design process – eliminating multiple concepts and extra revision cycles while building client trust. I’ve built a successful design business - and now direct a team of creatives - using the principles of simplicity, generosity, and intentional leadership.

My proven web design process creates real results for clients and has allowed me to dramatically increase my income per project.

I’ve learned that encouraging (and expecting) clients to actively participate in the design process results in better solutions. My clients were delighted, and I was rewarded with their complete trust in my work.

This way of working – intentional client leadership through a collaborative design process – is the foundation of what I teach you in Designing to Delight.

Being a designer isn’t always easy, but it can be rewarding – both personally and financially. That’s my mission – to generously share my process, my experience, and my insight in a way that eliminates the noise and focuses on what’s most important to you and your success.

I want you to be 100% confident in your ability to deliver good web design.

Mastering good web design – learning how to guide clients and translate their vision into a design they love – is the key to confidence. It is also the key to charging a lot more for your work. I would love to teach you how.

I’m so glad you’re here.
