Joelle Reeder

Creative Visual Designer & Wordpress Front-end Developer


Hello, lovely!

I've been designing websites since that little "under construction man" gif was cool. I'm a creative nerd and designer by nature, but love tinkering with code and generally geeking out. I'm a native of San Diego with wanderlust and a penchant for dry martinis, loud lipstick, craft coffee and jazz.

As owner and creative director of Moxie Design Studios, I’ve worked to create fabulous online brands for best-selling authors, award-winning businesses, academic institutions and creative entrepreneurs since 2003.

I specialize in creative consultation, online branding, and creating responsive WordPress websites from design to development.

My skillset includes, but is not limited to Adobe Creative Suite, specifically Photoshop and Illustrator, Wordpress, Squarespace, Shopify and ExpressionEngine. I am very comfortable with HTML and CSS and have an ever-growing working knowledge of Javascript, jQuery and PHP.

Once upon a time, I was an an award-winning blogger, and I am also co-author of the book, "The IT Girl's Guide to Blogging with Moxie" (Wiley & Sons Publishing) and have spoken on panels at industry events such as SXSW Interactive and appeared in several publications, podcasts and radio programs, including Entrepreneur Magazine, BlogTalk Radio and The Derek & Romaine Show.
