Dame Saint Orleans provides various services pertaining to website and graphic design creation.
All DSO websites are responsive and designed mobile-first. This not only allows your site to look good across multiple platforms, from phones, to tablets, to laptop and desktop computers, but it also greatly increases the positivity of your users' experience on the site, as well as helps with search engine rankings. My goal is also to keep your site looking good across multiple browsers so that your users will be impressed no matter how they find you.
I have experience building websites with the following technologies and platforms:
- Custom Mobile-First Responsive
- Basic PHP
From discussions about you or your business' needs, to proofs and prototypes to upload onto a live server, I will work with you personally to build a website that fits your needs and shows off what you and your brand are all about.
Have a website that isn't responsive, needs a facelift, or just isn't fitting your current needs? Lucky for you, I have lots experience taking old, out of date, and out of touch websites and giving them new life.
Much like the process of creating a new website, I will come up with a game plan with you where we will discuss your needs and goals, as well as in what ways your current site is falling short of your expectations. From there we will move on to creation and implementation of a new site, including any transfer of content from your old site to the new.

Website Additions and Modifications
Needing a new feature or content added or removed from an existing website often doesn't call for a total redesign. Get in touch with me with your specific needs and goals for your existing site to see if I can provide you with the changes you are seeking. I will work with you to incorporate these new changes as seamlessly as if they were there all along.
Website Repair and Maintenance
The web is fluid and so is business. I provide regular website maintenance on schedules that fit your needs as well as repair services for your site that broke when you let your techie cousin tweak with it over Thanksgiving. I do what I do and keep your website running strong so that you can focus on doing what you do.
Graphics & Visuals
Photo Retouching and Editing
The difference between professionally retouched photos and the ones you took on your phone with your finger part way across the lense is pretty huge... even when you do use the latest, hipster-approved Instagram filter. Nothing is worse than a professional website watered down with amateur images.
I provide the following photo editing services to keep your images and graphics looking fresh and professional:
- Photo Retouching:
- Color Adjustments
- Lighting, Shadow, and Contrast Adjustments
- Blemish Removal and Feature Enhancement - To cover for that time you singed your eyebrow off blowing out your birthday candles the night before picture day.
- Photo Sizing and Cropping
- Background Removal
- Banner Creation
- Image Text and Graphic Additions
Whether its for your website or just for your business, I will work alongside you to develop a logo to take your professional image to the next level.
In some cases I provide video editing for clients with specific video/visual needs.
- Cutting and Editing Clips Together
- Creating Title Sequences
- Adding Layover Text to Video
- Adding Transition Effects
Get in touch with me for questions about your specific video needs.
I’m honestly a bit blown away by how quickly Rachel got my site up and running. I knew I wanted a fairly simple webpage for my business and wanted to get it online quick. I put a lot of well-founded trust into her creative hands and let her build it from the ground up – since I didn’t know what I wanted – and she came up with the perfect solution for me in a few short days. A few small tweaks later, and my site was live! Literally under a week. Thrilled! Just get her the info she needs to make your page and if you’re not sure what to do, just ask her advice. Couldn’t be happier with the quality and fast completion of my webpage! Thanks, Rachel!
