Erika DeWitt – Risen Upon Thee
Hi everyone! My name is Erika, and I had the joy of helping Jaime with her site relaunch. We created the new look for her blog that you see today. But before I explain that process, I’d like to tell you a bit about myself and my design company, Risen Upon Thee.
If you had asked me even a few years ago if I’d ever leave the corporate world to start my own business in digital design. I’d tell you you were crazy! But in January of this year (2017), I finally overcame my insecurities and set out on a path I knew God had prepared for me. I’ve always been talented with graphic and web design. I had never considered it as a serious profession, despite dabbling in it on and off since my middle school days.
But now, almost a year later and with many opportunities to stretch my wings, I’m so happy I’ve taken this walk of faith. I see God has some very special people who need my help crafting their online ministries. Our gifts combined help bring these inspiring websites to life. I also chose the name Risen Upon Thee because it’s a phrase stemming from my life verse in Isaiah 60:1:
Arise, shine, for thy light has come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee.
Site Relaunch at Seeking God with Jaime Wiebel
When Jaime reached out, she told me that she felt God was calling her to leave Blogger, a free blogging software. She wanted to move onto a paid host and a premium version of WordPress. I was happy to help Jaime achieve these goals. As I informed her of my process and projected timelines while I did the work, I took many concerns off her shoulders.
I transferred her Blogger content to her new site and created the initial design. Then I showed her how to customize her site for future needs. Both Jaime and I are pleased with the final results. She tells me she has been getting a lot of great feedback! If you would like help developing a personal and inspiring look for your online hub, feel free to contact me.
Thanks for reading!
