The Internet and the concept of web design is always changing.
The next wave of design is here, right now — and you’re the designer.
Learn what you need to know to make a website, create effective images, or edit video without spending time in a classroom.
Design firms and web designers did a great job – 20 years ago. Back when people didn’t know how to use a computer, everyone hired people to do their design work and websites. But today, we can do better. You can do better.
Creating effective designs or editing images doesn’t have to require an industry professional. If you have drive and incentive and can envision what you are trying to create, I can help you learn how to produce the results you desire.
If you can text a message or upload a pic of your dinner on Facebook, then you can create your own website – anyone can. Some of the technology from Social Networking and Smart Phone experience can be used to create an effective blog or website. Some of what you need to learn isn’t obvious. You can spend hours watching videos or reading tutorials and you can take a few college classes in design – or you can call me. I can save you a lot of time and effort by teaching you what you need to know to get your site up and running.

“Working with One Planet Design has been a pleasure from start to finish. From the broad ideas of the conceptual stage to the many details involved in bringing my site to life, OPD didn’t miss a beat. Mary is both easy going and is meticulous as well, and my business has reaped the benefits of her work.”
Martin Shulman ‘Open Circle Productions’ Walnut Creek, California.
“We used One Planet Design for some graphic design (logo work) and video production. Mary and her staff were wonderful in creating spot-on logos for our new startup. Additionally, they performed brilliantly (and tirelessly) in working with us to produce a promotional video that was presented to an audience of over 1000 people. We are extremely grateful for their competent and hard work, and look forward to using One Planet’s services for the foreseeable future!”

“Mary’s efficiency, communication, and dedication separate her from the rest of the web design industry. I have worked with multiple web designers, and for the first time I have been extremely satisfied with the services I have received. Mary went way above and beyond of what I initially asked her; she diagnosed problems with my website I didn’t even know I had and added extra features which have made my website and business more efficient and profitable. You are in good hands with Mary and whether you are looking to set up a new website or modify an existing site, use One Planet Design! You wont regret it!”

“I am the owner of The Art International Gallery in Santa Barbara, California. In the summer of 2009, I decided that our gallery needed a professionally designed website and I began interviewing many web designers. I am very fortunate that I chose Mary Bouldin. She is so talented in all areas of art, as well as music, typesetting, graphics and web design that we have used her services to develop the logo for Art International Gallery, business cards, signage for the gallery, as well as promotional materials. It is very difficult for me to put in words my complete satisfaction and amazement of what a joy it has been working with Mary from start to finish on all of the above. When we initially made the decision to create a website, I was extremely apprehensive, somewhat nervous as to how the whole process would unfold. Mary took all of the stress and confusion out of the project and it flowed more smoothly and easily than I could have ever imagined. It is also important to note that I own five different companies, including a compounding pharmacy and laboratory licensed in two states, as well as a vacation condominium consortium, three tanning salons, as well as continue to maintain my private practice as a doctoral level psychotherapist with a primary focus on forensics and criminal cases. I cannot recommend Mary Bouldin highly enough and I know that any project that she agrees to take on will be done with the highest levels of sophistication, excellence, creativity, and in a timely manner.”
