Anja Marais helped me with my website and was a great pleasure to work with. She helped me think through what kind of look I wanted, what the various options were, the advantages and disadvantages of each option, and how to edit the website myself. Anja has a deep understanding of social media and the interconnectedness of various forms of social media. I highly recommend Anja Marais as a web designer.
Anja Marais is an excellent designer, guide, and fixer for all that was going wrong. As a talented artist herself she knew exactly where I was attempting to go. She understands very well the intricacies of the backend, helping me keep everything I wanted and seamlessly eliminating the bugs. She enjoys that her clients improve their skills and understanding as well. Great bedside manner and art focused digital talent! Worth every penny.
As the Marketing Director for The Studios of Key West, the island’s premier arts organization, I have long admired the keen artistic sensibility and professional ethic Anja Marais brings to her projects. Her aesthetic is modern yet accessible, and she works closely with clients to unify their thoughts and ideas into a bold visual statement. She’s a wonderful communicator, and I’ve always found her to be responsive, patient, innovative and generous with her ideas.

Anja has been a pleasure to work with throughout the years. She has helped RLA with website hacking issues, MailChimp set-up, and helps with social media advise. She was right there when we had an emergency with the hacking of our website. She corrected all the issues quickly, removed all the malware, and followed up daily to make sure our website wasn't flagged as spam any longer.

Anja Marais understands the unique needs of artists. She is savvy to the fluctuating whims of superficial "art marketing speak” and educates artists on the use of promotional materials and tools that are reflective of the artist’s needs and priorities.
