Your Website Should Sing Your Song

It’s one thing to have a website.  It’s another to have an optimized, pitch-perfect website that really performs for your business.

The Designist Studio hits that sweet spot for small service companies that rely on their website to position their offering and reach the right audience in the right way.   

The right messaging, the right keywords, and the right look and feel make all the difference to the ranking.  And it takes just the right kind of designer to bring it all together.

Adventures in website optimization

Artist, part tech-nerd, and full-on-friendly Ruha Thurairatnam is the local entrepreneur behind The Designist Studio.  She brings together a unique skill-set that takes small business owners on a website optimizing adventure.

Ruha says, “Websites are tools that reach people.  The design can pull them in, or push them away.  They need to appeal to your customers, and solve problems for them. How they come together - the words it shares, the message it conveys, the way it's structured - it all matters.  And the smallest change can make the biggest difference.”

A graduate of Sir Wilfred Grenfell’s Arts program, Ruha excelled in retail before being lured in by making website magic and connecting customers to companies.  It started as a favour for a friend, but Ruha found her niche in our pandemic world with people who KNOW the value or sharp web presence, but are feeling overwhelmed and don’t know how to do it.

The Designist Studio cuts through the clutter and noise and sets a clear path to a smart, optimized website.  The team works with Wordpress and most website platforms, and offers custom packages starting small with monthly maintenance packages, to big redesign overhauls and all points in between.  Ruha says, "We create websites that grow your business without complicated marketing or time-consuming tech."

Right now Ruha and the team love designing for Newfoundland companies are focused on local growth.  “Our communities are amazing,” says Ruha, “our companies can sell around the world.  The right websites are tech tools to take us there.”
