I’m Amanda Rehagen, a web designer/developer in the Kansas City area with more than 20 years HTML/CSS experience. In addition, I have more than a decade’s worth knowledge managing WordPress sites and social media pages. I have a passion for creating clean, user-friendly websites and layouts that put the emphasis on great content and finding solutions within the often chaotic world of social media and web marketing/management.
Currently, I work for Townsend Communications, a small marketing and publishing company in Kansas City specializing in higher education and content for the local arts community. In 2014, I oversaw the redesign of the MyMajors website, implementing a more modern minimalist and responsive design based on the Bootstrap framework. As part of this project, I also developed new templates for lead generation emails. And in 2015, I spearheaded the redesign of the WordPress website for KC Studio, a magazine advocating for the arts in Kansas City. In addition to overhauling the look of the website and implementing an improved calendar plugin, I developed a comprehensive social media marketing plan and calendar. I was also responsible for the redesign of the Creative Outlook website, a MyMajors product targeting arts schools and programs and developed a social media marketing plan/schedule for their yearly cover contest.
Prior to my work on these products, I designed the website for a small non-profit arts agency, Chameleon Arts and Youth Development, and helped develop a social media plan. In 2006-07, I was a member of the organizing committee for the Southern Graphics Council Conference in Kansas City, designing the website in collaboration with the graphic design coordinator. I have also worked as a freelancer, developing WordPress child themes for blogs and building websites for arts professionals.
