How about a partner to take your online marketing to the next level, with social media, email marketing, and analytics?

Hi, I'm Anna and I can help.


How can I help?


So you want a website. You've come to the right place. Have you secured a domain name? How about site hosting? Have you considered a blog? Is this going to be an E-commerce site? We've got a lot to talk about, but fear not: I've got this covered.


FACT Email marketing has an ROI of 4,300%.

FACT 91% of consumers check their email daily; it's the #1 direct channel in terms of daily use.

FACT 66% of consumers have made a purchase online as a result of an email marketing message.


Your brand is everything that encompasses your logo, your colors, your voice. It's who you are and what you're about. Are you quirky? Are you B2B? Your brand starts with a logo, but expands to so much more. Make your mark on the world!


Business cards, brochures, flyers, banners...all those items that make up offline marketing. Good marketing is cohesive marketing, constantly reinforcing your brand.


So this is pretty cool

Smart & Good Looking→Websites

Anna K. Amendolare

Web Designer ✻ Digital Marketer ✻ Professional Coffee Drinker

I started aka design from a desire to create websites that work for your business. With aka design, you get a marketer who can help you define your vision, a designer who knows what looks good and what works on the web, and a developer who can bring that design to life—the whole kit and caboodle!

A great looking website is all well and good, but to help your business, your site needs to be discoverable and persuasive. To maximize your web presence, you need digital marketing. You know your business, I know online marketing—let me be your Digital Marketing Partner. Expanding your reach encompasses a killer website, search engine optimization (SEO), email marketing, social media marketing, and analytics. Together, we can create a strong online presence for your brand.

I get it—I'm a small business owner, too. I understand tight deadlines, small budgets, and grand ideas. I believe that providing excellent customer service, delivering quality work, and creating value are the basis of any lasting partnership. I am as excited about your business as you are. Let's do this!

People Are Talking About Me

Sarah K., Coach Sarah K

Anna is hands down one of the most talented professionals I have worked with as a small business owner. I was looking to establish an online presence for my company, and her skills in graphic design proved tremendously helpful. One of the things that really impressed me about her is her ability to meld my goal and vision with what the site actually looked like. She was very patient with me as I worked through what I wanted my site to look like, and by asking good questions, she helped me better define the message and image I wanted to send to the public. She then worked with me to ensure that the website accurately reflected my business and me. She is incredibly dedicated and passionate about her role in helping your business grow and in making your website an integral part of that effort-it feels like it isn't just a job for her, but something she truly cares about and commits to making successful. I cannot recommend her highly enough! I will absolutely contact her again for her services!

I contacted Anna to help me rebuild my website. I knew I did not have the patience, time, or creativity to take on this project myself. I searched through many web designer's websites and found that the eye appeal and user friendly website Anna created for herself was exactly what I was going for. From the first email, she helped me stay focused and give ideas of what I was looking for in my site. The end result was better than I could have imagined. Anna has continued to improve my site and help me build a greater web presence since we launched the site. I am so please to be working with such a talented woman. She far exceeds my expectation and would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for help with their website. Thank you for everything you do and continue to do for me Anna!

Don Ferris, Schipperhaven & Schipperhaven: Journey

Anna and I have been working together since 2006. I retained her first to produce a new website for the Annapolis Summer Garden Theatre and subsequently worked with her to design my own personal website, schipperhaven.org. Both of these sites have been through multiple updates and renewals.

Her services have been 10-plus since the get-go. Not only has she provided excellent ideas at the startup of each project, she constantly creates and installs improvements, from platform to creative to additional widgets and techniques. At the same time, she listens carefully to client input and goes out of her way to implement it.

During our long association, Anna has had other employment infringe on her commitment to her own projects. Nevertheless, she has been extremely conscious of and able to meet deadlines. As a full-time entrepreneur, she can only better that response.

I recommend her unconditionally.
