“My team and I absolutely loved working with Heather and highly recommend her. She was so easy to work with and was great at taking our vision and running with it.

Heather was fabulous and brought our vision to life. Thank you, Heather! You're amazing, and we're excited to continue working with you!"
"Heather has been a delight to work with! I operate a high-end, boutique photography studio and Heather was able to help elevate the look and feel of our website to better reflect our brand. We had a lot of custom requests and she was able to accommodate every request and provide us with exactly the website that we had been envisioning.
"Redesigning a website that has been the foundation of our brand is not an easy task. While we wanted to dramatically elevate the e-commerce platform for our customer, we did not want to lose the core brand essentials. Heather was able to take the aesthetic style of Uncommon James and turn it into a beautiful, functional and easy-to-navigate website, from home page to press page and every page in between! With a great majority of our business coming from online sales, it was imperative that our new digital home embody the true essence of who we are as a company -- and we could not be more thrilled with the final result. Thank you, Heather, for your incredible time and talents."
"Heather was a pleasure to work with. I’ve spent thousands of dollars on a website I never truly loved in the past. Finally I have a website I love and feel shines my personality. I highly recommend Heather!"
"The rebranding of our musical duo, the Marilynds, was an extremely important one. As our music has evolved over the past few years after our moving to and living in Nashville, so has our sound and our look. We needed a new visual identity that would reflect our matured, raw and pop-infused vocals -- something that reflected our style as sisters and as musicians. Heather took our direction and ran with it, creating a gorgeous aesthetic that is truly and uniquely us. Our new digital home perfectly encapsulates our message and our music."
"I knew exactly what I wanted in my new website and sent over all of the design images over to Heather. She did such a great job making the website look the way I wanted and I know it wasn't an easy request. For design aesthetics, Heather aims to please and her work always turns out beautiful. "
"I've always designed my own websites and it has always been such a long and frustrating process... only to end up with a mediocre website that wasn't as perfect as I wanted it. I'm so glad I finally decided to hire Viva la Violet to design it for me! I finally feel like I have the beautiful, professional website that I've always dreamed of thanks to Heather! Thank you!"
"Heather exceeded our expectations on multiple levels. She impressed us with how she understood our ideal clients and our niche. She has helped us bring our vision for our brand to life. She has been extremely friendly, flexible and dedicated to our project from enquiry to launch and beyond! We keep looking at the screen and we can't quite believe it's our website! Working with Heather has been such a wonderful experience! Thank you Heather!"
"I am so happy with the way the branding and website came together! It is beautiful and beyond my expectations. I was very particular (and a little OCD) and Heather was so patient with me and great to work with!."
"Creating with Heather is a fulfilling, beautifully collaborative experience. Every time I work with Heather, she brings my words to life through visually stunning aesthetics and design. For 411 CREATIVE, my boutique creative communications agency, she nailed my brand identity -- a sophisticated, modern and retro brand that reflects my work and my personality. I couldn't be more thrilled with the entire design; from the submark to the final website, it's simply perfection! Heather is a true talent, a genuine spirit and a meticulous artist."
"Heather brought my vision to life on a website that truly speaks to my brand and the female clients I serve. I am so thankful for her gift of creativity and technical expertise as it has helped provide me with an avenue by which I can now serve women all across the globe! "
"We thought we knew what we wanted in a brand and web design, so much so that we tried DIY'ing it. Boy, were we wrong! Working with Heather far exceeded our own dreams for the online presence of our business. She created a brand that reflects a simple and unique elegance. Her patience and willingness to get every detail just right made her a joy to partner with for this project. We are certain that this investment in our brand will be worth it!"
"Finding Heather of Viva la Violet was no coincidence. I knew from the moment she sent me the design inspiration board for the House of BellaChic website that I had found the right designer. She really listened to my ideas and my brand message. She honed in perfectly on the tone and aesthetic of our brand! I’m so excited to launch this project. I cannot wait for brides to see what we have created. It has been a labor of love and I’m so glad that I had Heather to guide me through the process. Thank you so much Heather for your professionalism and expertise."
"Heather was an absolute joy to work with from first inquiry all the way to launch. She is professional and communicative which is a huge plus. She was clear on when she would be able to get tasks done and what she needed from me. I couldn’t be happier how my site looks!!! I will be using Heather for any projects that I need in the future. "

“I put off getting a designer for YEARS because I didn’t think a designer would understand what I was looking for or that I wouldn’t be pleased in the end. That was not the case at all with Heather. I am so glad I decided to work with her. She exceeded my expectations and was able to put my general ideas into a beautiful vision beyond what I could have come up with on my own. The process went so smoothly because she communicated so well, got back to me quickly, and was a wealth of knowledge for all my questions. From the design inspiration, page layouts, and overall aesthetic, Heather truly hit it spot on. I could not be happier or more pleased with the finished product and the entire process. Thank you Heather!”
"I had a life-long dream of opening a free-standing, midwife-led birth center. When you have a life's dream, you want someone who will take all your heart and soul's hope and transform it into something you can see and touch. Heather's deep listening transformed my dream into a brand and website that perfectly reflects the mission and feel of Gentle Landing Birth Center. I am so proud to send people to our website! Thank you Heather for all you do! I am grateful beyond words."
"Heather is amazing!!! Originally I was going to try and build my website on my own, but I wanted something a little more customized then the templates that were offered so I decided to invest in a Showit designer to help me. I came across Heather's information and automatically loved everything I saw. Because I'm a researcher, I kept looking to see if there was anyone else that caught my eye but in the end, there isn't anyone better than Heather. Once we connected I was confident she was the right fit to help me with my rebranded website. Heather started with a design proposal and color palette that I loved, and then we started on the website. I gave her some basic information and she ran with it. When I got the first draft of my site I fell in love, it was everything I wanted: a clean, modern & uncluttered website. She is very creative and talented when it comes to the layouts and design of the website. Heather did everything on time and was very professional. Because I'm type-A OCD I was a bit picky about a lot of my content and photos (these are items that were my responsibility) and Heather waited patiently while I worked through these details and made small changes as I tweaked some of my details. I'm very thankful for her patience with me!!! 100% I would recommend her to anyone looking for a website design, and she will be my go-to if I ever decide to rebrand. THANK YOU HEATHER !!!!!"
"The greatest thing about Heather, and there are a lot of great things, in my opinion was that she really listened to us. She was able to take our thoughts and ideas and turn them into something living...something breathing on the page and that is a true talent. Her skills in design, UX, and communicating made the experience one of the easiest things we've done. Sometimes a website redesign or a brand refresh can seem daunting, but not with Heather. She is organized and has a process that makes it very easy and doable. We're much better off now than before working with her, and we can't say how grateful we are."
"I absolutely loved working with Heather! She was extremely responsive and patient with me as we designed a new look for my website. Her design is gorgeous and it was well worth the investment of time and money. This was a huge project with 1000s of details (I also tend to change my mind a lot). Heather handled all the changes and adaptations with a great attitude, prompt response, and wonderful vision. She was fantastic at problem solving and adapting Showit to fit the needs of my organization. 100% recommend Heather, she gets my 5 star rating!"
