You do marketing work, but don’t market yourself!?

That’s right. Katopia Design receives new business almost solely from word of mouth. Here’s what some of my clients have to say…

Working with Kate on any project is an absolute pleasure. Regardless of the size or complexity of the job, Kate tackles it with efficiency and ease and produces an exceptional final product. I am consistently impressed with how quickly and professionally she gets the job done.

Elie Samuel, Owner of Samuel's Furniture

Ferndale, WA

We have been working with Katopia Design in all facets of our multimedia needs – from graphic design, publication layout, logo work, web design and web graphics and all scales of projects large or small. She does it all and does it to the highest of standards. All staff members that have worked with her marvel at her easy demeanor and professionalism. We have been lucky to benefit from her talents and expertise.

I love your work. You’re such a gem!


Oatlands, NSW, Australia

I’ve been in business for more than 20 years and have worked with many graphic and web designers. My favorite person to work with has a can-do attitude, meets (or exceeds) expectations and is always on time. Kate is all of those things and then some.

Kate has done many projects for me in recent years and we chose her from a field of three very experienced candidates to overhaul our (rather large) website. It was a four month project – it took us that long, not Kate – and Kate was an invaluable part of the process. Not only was her design work excellent, her expertise helped us to refine our vision and make our ‘baby’ better than we imagined.

It’s great when someone can capture your vision, improve it, get the work done with no fuss, show up on time or early with results that need very little adjustment. When someone hits that mark ALL the time, you’ve got a true pro. That’s Kate.

I work with a lot of people. Rarely am I this consistently pleased with EVERY single thing someone does. If I sound like a raving fan, it’s because I am.

Kate has been a life saver for me and my business. I have my own business, which consists of only me. I was finding myself getting bogged down with IT related issues, which wasn't my area of strength. When I found Kate I was able to hand over this to her, including designing my new webpage, rebranding and all the technical stuff that goes with it! This meant I could carry on doing what I was good at and stop wasting time trying to work out the IT stuff!

I found Kate to be fantastic, friendly, responsive, efficient and helpful, and she knows exactly what she is talking about! Thank you so much Kate. 🙂

Tanielle Thomas, Owner of My Singles Coach

Melbourne, VIC, Australia

We had Kate take over the design of our website after previous web designers were unable to fulfill our requirements as promised. Not only did she complete the website ahead of schedule, she was in constant contact with us during the entire process and exceeded all our expectations.

She is extremely knowledgeable and can answer just about any question immediately. Her pricing is extremely reasonable, considering the personal and professional service that she provides. Because of Kate's wonderful work, our business has increased 25% since the website was started.

Even though our website is complete, no matter when we contact her, she is willing to jump right in with her thoughts and ideas on other projects to build our business. I would recommend Kate at Katopia Design for any web design or business building ideas. If anyone would like a personal reference, feel free to contact us.

We would highly recommend Kate and Katopia Design to anyone.

Vinny & Kathy Maraia, Champion Awards, Inc.

Mildford, CT

I feel EXTREMELY fortunate to find Kate! She built our custom website and has been maintaining and updating the site for the past several years. Kate is punctual, straight forward, and always willing to invest in a project as if it is her very own. When starting up our organization, I interviewed a few other "big name" designers who did not come close to her stellar communication skills. After talking briefly with Kate and hearing her concise design plan, my choice was easy.

I have trusted her from the beginning with every marketing project in our organization; and will continue to trust her expertise. Kate has my highest possible recommendation for any of your marketing projects. Thank you Kate!

LT Brandon Sheets, U.S Navy Pilot - Youth Speaker

NAS North Island, San Diego, CA

Kate has been helpful beyond her website and print design work. She has also helped us advance our strategic use of our website and social media, teaching us so we can sustain the work ourselves, which is helpful as a nonprofit with a tiny marketing budget. We have really appreciated her responsiveness and accessibility as a consultant.

Kate was so helpful and easy to work with when we revamped our existing website that we decided to create two more with her help! She is always ready to answer any questions we have and gives clear directions that are easy to understand.

I have hired dozens of developers over the years and finding a good developer who delivers on time, consistently churns out high quality and has SEO in mind is a Rare Gem. Trust me on this - Kate sparkles.

Andrew Leone

Bloomington, MN

I have faith in Kate Spurrell. She is knowledgeable, considers customer needs and budget before making suggestions. Kate is also reliable as well as patient with me, something sorely lacking with some Web designers. Choosing has been the right move.


Soldotna, AK

Kate has a talent for capturing the essence of one's company or enterprise, and illustrating it in a wonderfully stylized way – which is exactly what happened when she created a new logo for our non-profit. We have been so happy with her work for us! Kate brought our 30 year old non-profit into the 21st century with the relevant, eye-catching marketing materials she put together for us. And as a delightful bonus, Kate is warm, friendly, prompt and super-easy to work with!

Liz Braun, Executive Director of Smithwright Services

Lynnwood, WA

Kate at Katopia Design has been instrumental in the success of our Google AdWords Program. I needed help figuring out how to set up the campaign and understand my Google Analytics and Kate was a great help. Our AdWords Campaign has increased our web traffic 10 fold and Kate made it easy and very inexpensive. Thanks, Kate!

Dayna Tukutau, General Manager at Sandy's Furniture

Vancouver, BC, Canada

I have been working with Kate now for two years for promotional work and design of my site. She is exemplary in work and so efficient and quick. If anyone seeks to have a graphic designer/website Kate is the one. When I asked her to do my logo she got it in one! She totally understands and will work closely with you to ensure you get the best results quickly and affordably.
