Hello~ I’m Karissa!
I design, build, and grow unique websites for local businesses that put their best foot forward online.
Working with extraordinary businesses ran by passionate owners I can stand behind is my joy!
I met Karissa during the McCombs digital marketing certification. She became known for her initiative and charisma during the course, which helped her achieve excellent results and inspired us all.
Karissa has exhibited the qualities of an effective team player, and I believe she will be a valuable asset to any team.
KEA Digital Services started from the desire to connect and build community with local businesses in the Austin area.
To create beautiful, useful, and easy to manage websites that delight business owners and their customers.
To cultivate a “small town feel” in Austin, preserving the weird and promoting the unique.
To provide quality work that you love and works for you.
What’s poppin Austin! Here’s a bit about me.
My name is Karissa, I’m a Pisces, and I created my first website in the 7th grade! Because of my natural curiosity and wanderlust, I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know some amazing people.
Visiting locally owned businesses that take community to heart, and enjoy what they do inspires me all the time. I love meeting the people behind the brand, and discovering the passion that led them to make their mark on the world.
I’m all about having new experiences, the more exciting and novel the better!
I knew my interest lay in many things. I find joy in working, but I’ve always felt doing just one thing limited all that I could explore in life. This is where web design enters stage left.
I got into making websites because I loved the idea of creating an experience when browsing online, but also because there’s so much to learn in this world. With each project I take on, it’s like I unlock a new section of life. Kind of like joining an unexplored subreddit irl.
But since quality web design consists of so many evolving parts, I studied digital marketing at UT Austin. There I met and worked under Daniel Bisett, a 20+ year web dev veteran, and owner of WeRock DM. He was an amazing mentor, passionate about his craft, and always taught with ethics in mind.
Website design is a pure form of expression and how we as business owners can communicate our energy to interested customers. I know it can be tricky to get everything you are as a company onto your site in a tasteful way but that’s where I come in.
