Web Design | Graphic Design | Writing

My name is Barb Manning. I am a writer, a web designer and a database geek. I value creativity and I believe in fairness and ethical behavior. I can look at projects from several perspectives and work with the solution that best fits the situation. If you have a project that’s disorganized, or floundering, I’m the person to get it on the right track. I work well with people, but I’m not afraid to voice my opinion if I think a project is in jeopardy. I get a buzz out of making things come together.


I have over 10 years of experience helping organizations establish their presence on the web, as well as developing creative marketing tools such as brochures, newsletters and other print media. I can help you reach your company’s goals by providing clear and compelling imagery on the web and in print. Creative Ink Design Services listens to your needs, wants, and desires and takes that information to heart to make the best design product for you.

When it comes to web design, it’s essential to understand the needs of an organization’s client base to create the right website. Working with clients, CIDS develops web designs that are mobile-friendly, responsive, and easy to navigate; also easy to read.

Creative Ink Design Services can provide you with a website that best suits your needs and budget. CIDS will develop interesting graphics and eye-catching color schemes for your website. Whether your company is a non-profit looking for a simple, brochure web design to introduce your services to the community, or your company is an entrepreneurial effort, Creative Ink Design Services can build a site for you.

Your website is the first office or store your customers see. You want to make the right impression. Today, having a well-designed website is just as important as a business card, or company brochure. Your business needs to show itself in the best light on the web.

Included in your web design, Creative Ink Design Services will provide Search Engine Optimization (SEO) to ensure top search results to make your website easy to find for prospective clients. Clear communication between the web designer and client during the planning and execution of a project is essential to success. No concern is too small to address.

Barb Manning has been our webmaster and I have nothing but high praise for what she does. When our site is not up to date it is because I have not gotten information to her. When I send her new information she puts it on the web immediately. She has been helpful and has periodically redesigned the whole site. I am always proud to direct clients to look at our website. Barb has also emailed me and asked for new information and pictures so that we have up to date information.”
