   Kathleen Zelony
   Co-Founder

I have spent my entire career in some phase of software development or software marketing.  I enjoy working with people to make sure software projects are designed and implemented in a way that addresses the customer needs for a strong presence not only on the web, but a compelling product representation on the web. 

 

My background is in software and project management and marketing which gives me a unique perspective on how to work with customers and development teams to create websites that not only WOW the business owners, but also the customers.

 

Websites need to be above all, a way for clients to convey the story and passion of their services or products to everyone on the web.

 

I first ran across the plight of small businesses on the web when I was looking for an air-conditioned doghouse for my dogs.  The owners of Blythe Wood Works needed a new website, but the design house that developed their original website was “too big & too busy” to help their long-time client…this was the origin of ZK Web Designs, a boutique design company.

 

Let us help you get your story heard.

 

I reside in North Carolina with my family and menagerie of pets.
