About

Deborah Edwards-OnoroMy name is Deborah Edwards-Onoro and I’m the owner of Lireo Designs, a website development and digital marketing company in Canton, Michigan. I’m a front-end web developer and user experience professional who uses WordPress to build engaging websites that are usable and accessible.

At Lireo Designs, I offer personalized service and listen carefully to your needs and goals. Based on conversations with you and careful research, I define your audience to learn what visitors might want and expect from your website and email campaigns.

I’ll work with you to identify a web solution that works for your organization, and help you get a better understanding of what being on the web can do for your business.

Whether you need someone to:

  • Design a new site
  • Redesign or do an audit of your existing site
  • Add new features to your site
  • Improving the findability of your site
  • Create email campaigns

I’m happy to chat with you about the services I provide to help you achieve your business goals.

One nonprofit client received an unexpected $50,000 donation from a website visitor who discovered the nonprofit’s achievements from their site. View some of the sites I’ve created in my portfolio.

Some Background on Deborah

Since beginning work on the web in 1997, I’ve seen the transition from table-based layouts, to cascading stylesheets, to responsive web design. Prior to my work on the web, I worked at two software development companies in Ann Arbor, Michigan where I oversaw translation of decision support software, worked in quality assurance, and marketing.

As web developer and web analyst on the web services team at Washtenaw Community College, I worked in higher education for four years, helping to improve the user experience and accessibility of the college website.

I’m an organizer for three meetup groups: Detroit User Experience, Metro Detroit WordPress Meetup, and Refresh Detroit. From 2008 to 2011, I was a boardmember of the Michigan Usability Professionals’ Association.

When I’m not on the computer, I can be found reading, shooting photos, bicycling, or bird watching.
