How it started:
After hiring a local web designer in 2015, owner Jessica Gaul experienced what she found to be a trend in web design- a web designer who could not meet deadlines, yet was the only one with access to her site for updates and edits. If changes were needed, she was forced to go through him… all for the “low, low price of $85/hour!” Jessica felt like she was being held hostage, she felt taken advantage of; she would be paying someone else in perpetuity any time she wanted to make a change. When the web designer stopped responding to her communication all together, she knew she better figure something out!
Jessica quickly dove into web design and fortunately it came fairly easy- she completed and launched her website herself, learning as she went. Speaking with others in her industry, it was clear that there was a real need for simple, straightforward and HONEST web design. Jessica began working on the web pages of colleagues and as word spread, more people contacted her to change them over to a design and platform they could manage themselves; Gaul Creative was born!
