About accent45

Hi there. I’m Michelle Andreas, graphic designer and web developer for accent45. I have over 15 years graphic design experience, including print design. I’ve been working with the web since 1998. I went to school for graphic design and started learning HTML as a graphic designer working in Seattle. Before going out on my own, I worked with a marketing team for five years, which gave me the experience and confidence to start my own business.

I prefer to keep things simple. My main focus is creating websites with a content editor like WordPress or CMS (Content Management System). This allows clients to update their michelle-andreas-2014websites without knowing any code. Accent45 can also add a CMS' to existing websites.

I am constantly learning new technologies, techniques, and solutions for each unique web project.

When I’m not working, I’m up on the mountain playing in the snow. I have been skiing / snowboarding since I was four and it is absolutely my favorite thing to do! I’ve also got to be outside during the summer, either riding my bike, hiking, digging in the dirt with my son or spending time with friends.
