Recognition from colleagues & clients:

TomDowningDesigner“I worked with Katie on two major interactive initiatives and in both she constantly amazed me with her ability to manage a variety of media elements, story threads and concepts.  She is a thoughtful and deliberate content creator and curator and is an asset to any project she is involved in.

Over the course of the work we created together, she was always ready to push a project or idea to the next level, striving to produce the best work she possibly could at any given moment. I’d recommend her to anyone looking for a passionate and creative content producer/editor.”

“I recently had the opportunity to work  with Katie Carpenter at Maple Website Design & Development on the creation of my website,, and my experience was exceptional!!!!

Katie took my suggestions and ideas and wove them into a website that reflected not only my personality and story, but made it simple and modern with an easy-to-navigate flow that is responsive for all devices.  I always wanted to sell my artwork on-line and her business partner and web developer, Ben Sheehan, came up with an easy to use design enabling people to do just that.
The process of it all went very smoothly because Katie was always available to respond to me via phone, email, texts, etc.  Her extraordinary knowledge of website design and its content made decision-making easy.  She not only sent me various layouts/designs to consider but reflected on my suggestions and made it all come together.
I would highly recommend Maple Website Design & Development to anyone in need of new and exciting web design and concepts.”
