My name is Deborah Edwards-Onoro and I’m the owner of Lireo Designs, a web design and development 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.
I’ll meet with you to discuss your website and design a website that meets the needs of your customers and achieves the business goals for your organization.
And I’ll help you get a better understanding of how being on the web can increase customers.
Whether you need someone to:
- Design a new site
- Redesign or do an audit of your existing site
- Add new features to your site
- Improve the ability for people to find your site
- Train you on how to use WordPress
- Provide monthly maintenance services for your WordPress site
- Create email campaigns
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’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.
Since beginning work on the web in 1997, I’ve seen the transition from table-based layouts, to cascading stylesheets, to mobile-friendly web design.
My first website was my church’s website, which I coded in Notepad. I loved creating websites and quickly expanded my web knowledge. Soon after, I was creating sites for nonprofits, small businesses, and consultants.
When I reached the point of wanting more formal web education, I returned to college and earned certificates in web technology, web application development, and web user experience.
I worked in higher education for four years, as web developer and web analyst on the web services team at Washtenaw Community College, 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.
