In simple terms, our business is about people, not technology — publishing your story and growing your business. We help clients establish credible, authentic, and successful websites. Then we optimize, promote, and maintain them, updating them in a continuous improvement process as their businesses evolve. Our goal is simply to deliver authentic marketing products using web technology, to help clients be found, be recognized, and prosper!
It’s not about just creating a pretty website. We go well beyond that, raising the bar to measurable business success. We’re with you through a complete marketing makeover, using the same strategies and tactics that big corporations use. You’ll see your unique value emerge visibly through a cycle from branding to marketing design to content development to graphic design to technical development to search engine optimization and maintenance. Our professional team works collaboratively to create sites that are compelling, easy to use, and that make our clients look like rockstars in their industry.

We’re now a boutique inbound marketing agency providing website design and development, search engine optimization (SEO), and WordPress website maintenance. We look forward to working with you.
Linda took a winding path from writing, music, and art into information technology and knew it was love when she created her first website in 1995. She became a database designer, then a systems professional and web developer in California statewide data centers, documenting, programming, and quality testing multimillion dollar web projects, managing servers, training staff, leading strategy meetings, and monitoring the performance of consultants. She served as a best practices resource for several state agencies, and her team delivered California’s first live Governor’s webcast.
In private business, Linda combines her education and experience in the arts with corporate level technical expertise to help businesses and nonprofits succeed in their missions. She has served on nonprofit boards and as an entrepreneur herself, understands their challenges. What drives the work of Clarity Web Studio is this:
Optimizing the union of art and technology to create authentic, unique marketing products for clients
Producing collaborative work we are proud of with accomplished creative and technical artists
