To commemorate this in my own way, I thought it would be lovely to write about three female web designer entrepreneurs who inspire me. These are the women I look up to. Their designs influence my work. They are passionate, professional and creative. They all seem like friendly, down-to-earth people who I’d love to have a cup of tea with.
All of them create websites with beautiful, editorial-inspired layouts. Clean, elegant, minimalist and stunning.
Melissa Love is a UK-based web designer. She designs websites for photographers and also sells website templates and themes aimed at photographers who want to be completely in charge of their own designs. Her company is called The Design Space.
She has created a vibrant and friendly community around her brand. Her blog and Facebook group (The Design Space Lounge) are excellent and helpful resources for all creative entrepreneurs wanting to grow their businesses and websites.
The WordPress Workspace is a comprehensive online resource filled with step-by-step guides helping people to get online. Plus it’s free – how awesome is that. There’s also loads of information aimed at helping entrepreneurs and small businesses drive more traffic to their websites, and generate more leads and sales.
Los Angeles-based graphic and website designer Meg Long is seriously talented. Her branding and website designs are absolutely gorgeous and oozing with personality. She also comes across as such a friendly, warm-hearted, colourful, fun person.
