As principal clarinetist for the Houston Symphony, Mark Nuccio is a big deal in the classical music scene! I wanted to give him an updated Wix website that reflected his experience and professionalism in his field.
"I knew I needed a website facelift but had no idea where to start. I needed new headshots, more recordings, more dates of upcoming concerts, etc… I find that managing the backside of a website is quite complicated. The list was long and overwhelming!
Sarah created an orderly timeline and a punch list of “to-do’s” that helped the tasks to be achievable. There was no stress from Sarah. The timeline was manageable but yet there was one. Sarah brought this knowledge as well as fresh eyes to really move away from the old and into something much more contemporary. I appreciated her fresh eyes and youthful approach that was still sophisticated!
I'm excited because my website feels fresh and current! The functionality is so important and allows me to share what I do with patrons and students. It also allows people who would like to hire me as a musician to have full access to branding, headshots, and bios. That is quicker for them and easier for me. Now I can finally check that big “to-do” off my list!"
Custom Wix website for a family photography business to display her amazing photos in several gallery variations.
"I am so happy with my new website and I have Sarah Kostin of Songbird Creative to thank. Although we live on opposite sides of the country, distance was never an issue as Sarah was readily available to answer my questions and meet remotely.
Sarah offered expertise not only in the aesthetic design and creative elements of the site but additionally from a sales/business perspective. When I struggled to articulate specific aspects of my brand, Sarah kindly offered concrete prompts for me to reflect on and clarify my purpose.
Sarah approaches her work with professionalism, humor and warmth and was a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend Songbird Creative for anyone looking to have a very positive experience building a website."
This was such an interesting website project because the Roland Reed gallery is part art display, art ordering, and part historical records of the artist. We wanted the website to display the stunning images in their frames and mimic the spacious feel of viewing them in a gallery. Because these photographs were taken over a hundred years ago, we wanted the site to have a timeless look and feel.

"I've been so fortunate to have worked with Sarah on two business websites and plan to do more. She really takes time to listen to what you need and her ability to turn a vision into reality is amazing. Thank you Sarah and Songbird Creative for building me such a beautiful marketing platform."
After a coaching session together, Lorna realized she wanted a very minimalist website that was just focused on her audience. Most of the content for this unique and inviting Squarespace website are six videos of Lorna that we recorded on Zoom.
"Before working with Sarah, I was a bit paralyzed because I couldn't work out what I wanted to say on my website. I imagined I needed to be clear and sure, and I imagined that I needed to find a way to blend my experience with my current offering. I had no idea how to make changes to the site because my old website person had made everything a picture.
Working with Sarah felt easy and fun!! She asked great questions and it all seemed like a low-stakes game. Sarah helped me to see that I didn't need to put my life history on my website at all.
Now, I'm so excited to have a website that feels like me! Most importantly, it represents the me now, not an old version of me."
Alaya wanted a grounded website refresh on Squarespace that made readers take a big exhale. This minimalist website is soft and gentle yet incredibly empowered and strong.
"Working with Sarah is fun! She has an incredible way of keeping everything light, while also being focused and "down to business." She approaches every part of the work with a sense of curiosity and play.
Sarah helped me transform a playlist and a handful of feeling words into a beautifully aligned website that represents me and my work. Sarah also helped guide me toward written content that spoke more clearly to my ideal clients. She did all of this by asking great questions, listening deeply to my answers, and patiently checking in with me along the way. I felt that she was holding space for my process and holding the desired outcome along with me.
And now, I have a website I feel really proud of and can share with the world! I also have more clarity about how to talk about and represent my work in general. I feel connected to my work and its potential impact on the people I work with."
