Web Professional & Designer
There are many crucial components to a website that are just as important as eye-catching colors and images. The entire ‘design system’ or ‘engineering’ matter a great deal. What good is a beautiful website or cool features if we meet visitors with a clunky, counterintuitive experience? Or a web page that takes over 4 – 5 seconds to load? Visitors will abandon your site before submitting that subscription form, signing up for a newsletter, purchasing a product, or sharing your information on social media channels. I am, of course, talking about a good user experience (UX).
My name is Sharon Rieger. I am a multi-faceted digital designer with 11+ years’ experience in the web industry. I collaborate, consult, and map out digital strategies with marketers, business owners, and nonprofits to bring to life their digital vision.
“Some people think design means how it looks. But of course, if you dig deeper, it’s really how it works.”

In my role as Marketing Content Specialist, I had frequent need to coordinate and seek assistance from Sharon Rieger who held the role of Web Development Manager and was responsible for building and designing various landing pages, and websites for which I prepared the content. Sharon was extremely responsive, available and easy to work with, quickly and efficiently taking care of any issues, providing guidance willingly and as needed, and going above and beyond to provide clear and helpful communication that made it easy to collaborate on complex projects.
I had the pleasure of working with Sharon Rieger for more than 8 years.
Our Digital Media department was highly respected, our work was impeccable, and Sharon was the primary reason for the success of our team. She is responsive to all inquiries in a timely manner, her work ethic is commendable, and she has all the necessary technical skills, both hardware and software, to be fully productive when remote.
Sharon is a formidable talent and was a brilliant, creative a fearless partner during this project. Her brilliance is not limited to development work; her creative mind is solutions oriented and helped us transform our website into a space that will help us connect with more prospective volunteers and supporters for years to come.
I loved working with her on this project and hope to work with her again in the future.
