Claim Your Space
I work with a variety of creative entrepreneurs, bloggers and boutique/small business owners to create beautiful online spaces using custom WordPress solutions. Your Website is more than a theme or a pretty design...you need a solution that fits your unique needs and looks great doing it.
Your online space should represent you and is the place where you and your business can stand out from the crowd. You continue working on being brilliant and creating your magic. I will take care of the rest, I'm here to make it easy and fun.
I get really excited about new projects and I'm currently scheduling for March and April. I choose to work with a small number of clients each month, which allows me to really focus on your project and get you launched fast.
Together we will brainstorm, plan, and start conspiring on a strategy. Don't worry I'll handle all the heavy lifting with techie and graphic stuff. And I'll help you get started if you're new to WordPress. Tell me a bit about your project and I will get back you quick like a bunny (within 24 hours, usually much less).
I’m so excited to welcome Spring today. We are starting to have warmer days mixed up with a few cold ones here in Utah, which is typical for March. Every where I look I see hints of Spring, not quite blossoms or green trees and grass yet, but you can tell things are changing. This is my favorite time of year and I get filled with excitement each Spring. I
Let’s talk about your Sidebar. How can you change your Sidebar without changing it on all pages? Do you love your Sidebar or do you hate it? A current trend is to ditch the sidebar. But this doesn’t work for a lot of bloggers. You have advertising and features that are meant to drive traffic deeper than your home page. The sidebar is a mainstay for most lifestyle bloggers. Did
Have you heard the saying “The best camera is the one you have with you?” I love my DSLR camera, but my iPhone is almost always the one I have with me. It’s handing, fast and easy but doesn’t always produce the quality of image I want for a blog post. Can you get blog-ready photos from your phone? Yes! A few tweaks and your photos will look like you
For about a year I have been in various stages of writing and planning an eCourse. Launch & Rock comes from a desire to share what I have learned about the design process and collaboration from my 6+ years of experience working with clients and help anyone planning a new site or redesign. I’ve seen clients soar with their new Websites create thriving community and resources for their readers. I’ve also seen clients who have
What I Have Learned
I LOVE my new blog design! Thauna did an awesome job with the layout, design, navigation, and overall look and feel of the site. Every element fits perfectly creating a sense of balance with color and whitespace.Thauna was a pleasure to work with. She answered every question and worked in every element that I wanted. The back and forth conversation was a breeze. It’s like she knew just what I wanted and needed for my web site. Thauna moved my web site over from blogger, something I was so nervous to do myself. She made the process easy and took away the intimidation of it. She knows her stuff. Thauna has a wonderful knowledge base of Wordpress, plugins and design.All in all, it was an awesome experience working with her and I would do it again in a heartbeat!

Working with Thauna at Bellano Web Studio was a dream--and I don't say that lightly. She is easy to work with, and was so responsive to my questions, needs, and ideas. I am amazed at how effortless this process seemed to be--which is all due to Thauna's skill, professionalism, and creativity. I am thrilled with my website redesign and I get compliments on it all the time. I highly recommend working with her!
I have worked with Bellano Web Studio on various revisions and update to my website over the past 3 years. Every time, Thauna has been great to work with, within my price range, and super fast. I am amazed at how quickly she can turn around my website updates. She is always quick to answer questions and make changes. I really enjoy working with her and highly recommend her!
Thauna was like the fairy godmother of my WordPress site. Not only did she wave her magic wand and make my wildest website dreams come true, she did it all with a healthy dose of wisdom, humor, nurturing, and love-- that’s the coach and mom side of her. The other side of Thauna is the artist, whose medium comes in the form of digital pixels. She created my site with style, insight, competence, and passion. I'm so glad I found her.

Thauna is an amazing designer to work with. She was great at answering my many questions before starting and made me feel very comfortable. She was always available and responded promptly throughout the entire process. She had so many great ideas and came up with many elements I never would have thought of otherwise. She had a way of incorporating my ideas but making them better. She is very creative and helped me come up with a great logo when I wasn’t exactly sure what I wanted. I loved that she threw in extras like Facebook and Twitter cover photos too. She also provided great support after the site was finished. I’m so happy with how the site turned out and would definitely use her again and recommend her to anyone else needing an amazing website.
Education to the Core
Thank you so much! You truly have been so amazing throughout this whole process. I just want to thank you so much for working so hard, and being so kind. I have had the best experience with you, and I am so happy with my blog. You are amazing, and I would recommend you to any of my friends.
Good. Food. Stories.
Thank you a million times over for all your patience and detail-oriented work - as you now know, I'm such an OCD person, and you are a dream to collaborate with.
Thauna is a phenomenal designer/developer and it has been an immense pleasure to work with her. She is not only extremely responsive and gets stuff efficiently in such a timely manner but she is extremely patient, which is something important for me since I am very aware of my OCD tendencies. She delivered the website of my dreams and I am so thankful to God that I hired Thauna and I look forward to working with her on future websites. If you're looking for a designer who is creative, efficient, timely, patient and versatile, I highly recommend Thauna, you will not be disappointed.
Thauna is awesome! I've worked with her on 2 projects and in both cases the outcome was entirely different. This really shows what a versatile and creative designer she is. On the last project we worked on I was pretty demanding, I changed my business name and my logo twice and I was still not 100% sure about the direction I wanted to take with the website. Thauna stayed very patient during the process and helped me to put together a brand that I´m really happy and content with. I've made a lot of stupid investments trying to set up my business, but hiring Thauna was one of the best decisions I've made.
Red BrollyI have had two blogs designed by Thauna. And I’m extremely happy with both of them. Thauna is brilliant at knowing exactly what you want and putting this into a design that exceeds your wildest expectations. She always goes that one step further. I’m very pleased with both designs Thauna has done for me. But, it’s not only with the design perspective that I’ m very happy with- it’s also with the ongoing support. As a person that is limited with technical knowledge about my website- Thauna is always there to solve any problem in the shortest possible time! I cannot recommend Thauna and the Bellano Web Studio highly enough.
Thauna has been spectacular in every aspect. So organized, from start to finish. We really jived in how we approach projects, which thrilled me. I couldn't be happier with how my site turned out, or how quickly it came together. I'd highly recommend Thauna to anyone who asked!
First Grade Blue Skies
Bellano was A++ to work with and handled the changeover to Wordpress completely! She did a phenomenal job and helped me during every step of the process. Highly recommend!!
For years, my website was a nightmare. Thanks to Bellano, now it's a dream!
I worked with Thauna on a complete redesign of my site. Not only was it painless, it was fun. Imagine that!
If you want a designer who quickly responds to questions (and I asked a lot of questions!), creates sites that are beautiful, and sticks to a deadline, Bellano is for you!
The Iceberg Project
Before I worked with Thauna I had no idea how I wanted the site to look and function. After giving her some basic ideas and course-correcting along the way, she came up with a brilliant design for my site that's better than I could have ever imagined it.
The Bubble Dancer
I have been thinking about starting a blog for the last three years, and the task has always scared me. I am busy professional with no time, I certainly cannot dedicate days never mind weeks to the project. So I started looking for help. I bumped into Bellano Web Studio, and I was impressed right away by the clarity of the service offering. Thauna has been a saviour, she came up with my logo design (which blew me away), web site layout, fonts colour scheme and she created a terrific brand for my new project, all from a very meager set of instructions, almost a mind reader!No need to look any further for Web Design you have found the right partner.
Working with Thauna is a dream! She took my vision and made it better. She is extremely creative and knowledgeable about Wordpress, features, and plugins. She pulled me through my site design, and made it fun. My site was delivered on time and on budget. I would jump at the chance to work with her again. She's a gem!
A Merry Feast
Thauna from Bellano Web Studio has helped me create my beautiful new home-sweet-internet-home. I can’t thank her enough. She is a fellow Italophile, and had some wonderful ideas while we were brainstorming together. It’s been kind of overwhelming and a wee bit scary to move and re-brand the blog- and Thauna handled all of my questions and changes and ramblings with such kindness and patience!
A Spoonful of Sugar
Our blog was in desperate need of makeover. Thauna from Bellano Web Studio has listened to our ideas and designed us a wonderful new site which is modern, easy to navigate, and showcases our crafts and recipes. She handled the Blogger to WordPress transfer, designed our new logo, added lots of cool features, and kept us regularly updated and involved with the process. Thauna was a joy to work with and has a great attention to detail. If you are wanting to invest in a quality web design, we wholeheartedly recommend Thauna.
Thauna was simply a delight to work with. With very little input from me, she came up with the gorgeous, minimalist website I'd said I wanted. I highly recommend Thauna for her designer's eye and technical savvy. Creative, knowledgeable, responsive -- Thauna embodies every quality you hope to find in a web designer!
Fabulous After 40
I couldn't be more thrilled with Thauna and the stellar job she did on my website! I searched high and low for a designer like this and thought I was asking for the impossible. Thauna exceeded my expectations with her knowledge, creativity, patience and speed. She was attentive from start to finish and working with her was a joy. I can't recommend Thauna enough. She's the real deal!
Red Barn & Respro
Thauna did an absolutely wonderful job on two custom-designed sites for me, one for a food safety consultancy company and the other for a book publisher's blog. The audiences for the sites are vastly different, and she achieved a design for each one that works for its market. Her creativity and professionalism are top-notch, and she's lightning fast with answering questions and completing projects. I was very relieved to have her help with SEO and getting site maps submitted to Google too, which made all the difference in getting the sites to show up in Google search results. Bottom line: Thauna rocks and I look forward to working with her on any new sites in the future! - redbarnblog.com and resprofsp.com
