Emphasis Creative is a small and nimble consulting agency run by artist and designer Liz LaManche. From solo design and UX consulting to larger projects using a distributed virtual team of developers and designers, we have provided design, web and software development services since 2001. We specialize in seamless and delightful user-centered design, WordPress as a CMS, and custom app development.

Liz LaManche has 20-plus years of experience in user interface design, web development and usability, with an art and design background. She enjoys new challenges and has taken on projects ranging in size from enterprise VoIP management and power utility diagnostics, to commercial web systems for brokering construction deals, to interactive marketing kiosks and retail and travel websites. Her focus is on providing intuitive and delightful user experiences across all media.

LaManche went into software design after majoring in Architecture at Yale, which she says prepared her for “designing spaces for specific groups of people to use and enjoy, and for understanding the needs of clients and manifesting solutions for them within technological constraints.”

Liz’s skillset includes expert level HTML/CSS, web development and administration, basic Javascript, user testing, and of course art and design using Adobe suite and other tools.
