In honor of women’s history month, this week I’m featuring nine very special women. This past November, I joined an exclusive group of Showit web designers that Showit calls design partners.
As a Showit design partner, you are educated and quizzed on best practices of the platform and your website designs are personally audited by the Showit team for quality and adherence to their recommendations. Showit design partners have the privilege of being featured on the Showit website and have the ability to submit their website template designs to the Showit marketplace.
But not all Showit design partners are alike! Each designer on this list has a speciality that they really excel at and I’m here to give you the scoop. If you’ve been in the market to find the perfect Showit website designer for your next website, check out these lovely ladies and their beautiful work below.

Though small in stature, Ingrid has always had a big passion for creative pursuits and has been designing since she was 17. She founded her San Diego-based business in 2009, and has been focusing on branding and web design for the past 6 years. Ingrid’s specialty is creating membership websites that are modern and clean, complete with a polished user experience that covers even the littlest of details. Be on the lookout for Ingrid’s shop coming this year where you can buy templates, resources and more or take a look at Ingrid’s design portfolio.
Owner & Lead Designer at Foil & Ink (and record-breaking college athlete)
Jacki’s love for typography and design inspired her to start her Salt Lake City business as a stationery designer nearly 8 years ago. Since then, she has added branding and web design into her repertoire as well. Jacki is constantly inspired by her wedding photographer clients, collaborating with them to create designs that are modern, bold and colorful. Since returning from her recent maternity leave, Jacki has plans for developing several new website templates this year. Check out Jacki’s work.
Owner & Showit Website Designer at Joanna Moss Creative

She knew it was the perfect fit to balance her creative and technical passions and started her own business in 2004. Following her relocation to the Cayman Islands for 3 years and some transitions in her business in 2019, Joanna moved to Vancouver, BC, Canada and rebranded, focusing solely on Showit websites.

And lastly… You didn’t think I’d write a post about Showit website designers without including myself, did you?
Owner and & Brand Strategist, K Design Co.
My design career began working in the agency world for a few years before making the leap to start my own business based in Indianapolis in 2014. One MBA and four children later, I’ve had the privilege to design for a range of clients including therapists, coaches and authors. My favorite part of the design process is seeing the transformation I am able to create for my clients and seeing how it impacts their business. I love designing websites that feel soft and feminine but I also love the challenge of going out of my comfort zone! I’ll be adding a few new templates to my Showit website shop this year as well as launching an all new product – brand kits – at the beginning of April!
