make a
statement

not
just
a site

Your website is your first impression, and you want it to have a firm handshake and solid eye-contact. I design digital home-bases for businesses (and humans) who want their online presence to be as bold and vibrant as they are.

about me

Hi, I'm Hazel Foerstner (hard-to-spell last name, hence the URL). I've worked for startups and individuals designing and developing sites, webapps, and mobile apps. And I love problem-solving.

It's not a buzzword for me -- I literally play Sudoku and code apps in my spare time.

In my development career I've found that problem-solving doesn't just happen in the coding part of development -- in fact, most of it happens during the design. Determining the functionality of a site or app goes much further than beautiful colors and illustrations, it's a puzzle to be solved. Design is the perfect marriage of empathy and tech, and that's why I'm here.

WEBSITES THAT
FEEL LIKE YOU

Templates and site-builders have allowed just about anyone to make a website, but you're not just anyone. I will design a goal-oriented website that shouts your brand's message from the rooftops before you even write a line of copy.
yes please
That's right, real code-on-a-black-screen programming. If you have some fancy tricks in mind that site-builders just can't handle, we can make it happen through the magic of Javascript and StackOverflow. I use React for web and React Native for mobile apps (but I'm flexible!).
