We are a husband and wife web design team, and we love what we do. We met in Truckee, but after our first daughter was born, we moved to Nevada City, Dave’s hometown. We always thought it was funny that we left the snow, only to move onto Winter Street in downtown Nevada City.
We had never planned on going into business together, but can’t imagine anything else now. Winter Street Design evolved as we started a family and tried to figure out how we were going to balance our work and our time with our children.
What We Do
Our skills are a blend of design and function. Carol handles all the initial planning, design and overall marketing direction of any website. She also loves working on content, editing text, adding photos, creating graphics, and making sure everything looks good. Dave handles everything technical, setting up Wordpress, building custom themes from design mockups, installing plugins and making sure everything functions as it should. All work is done in-house, and you’ll always work directly with the two of us.
What We Love
If it’s winter, and a powder day, you’ll have a hard time catching Dave at his desk. In the summer, Carol will have planned some sort of travel adventure, claiming that we only have so many more summers before the girls are out of the house.
We have two teenage girls who both love to travel, dance and spend time with friends. They’re always up for an adventurous vacation, but would be just as happy lounging around the house or walking around downtown Nevada City.
Faye is currently at Seattle University where she is planning on double majoring in Spanish & Photography. Her days are filled with studying, dance, walking to the waterfront, and late night runs to iHop. Up next: studying abroad in Puebla, Mexico.
You’ll usually find Eve curled up on the couch, doing her best to avoid her homework. Her mornings start slowly with tea in bed and schoolwork, the bonus of being on independent study. Then dance classes for most of the afternoon and evening. Up next: applying to BFA Dance programs in a couple years.
Lately, Dave and I have been playing golf together, a sure sign that the kids are getting bigger and we have way too much time on our hands.
