Colandrea Design was founded in 2001 when a local country club asked Janet Colandrea to build a website for them. Backed with a bachelor's degree in graphic design and silversmithing and a lifetime of loving art, the country club project snowballed and she has been building websites and providing marketing solutions for local businesses, holistic practitioners and non- profit organizations ever since.

"As a graphic artist and web developer, I provide a full range of creative and technical solutions," says Janet. " I develop and host websites, train clients to manage their own website or provide those services if they don't wish to take on that task. I design graphics and marketing materials ranging from custom logos to business cards, brochures, flyers, ads, posters and any other branding solutions. The technical side kicks in when providing search engine optimization to increase the clients' visibility on a search engine. I also provide social media development and networking. I'm a Google trusted professional and can provide 360 imaging to help boost local online visibility to businesses. Some of the things I really enjoy is filming, editing and creating videos. It creates a dynamic workflow and tells a story. For me, my job is very rewarding, I could be troubleshooting a down site or building a new site, creating a logo being seen by thousands of people or building an ad campaign that draws traffic to a business. The results are immeasurable!"

Janet builds and maintains the websites and volunteers for A Place Called Hope, a birds of prey rehabilitation center in Killingworth, as well as Meigs Point Nature Center and the Friends of Hammonasset at Hammonasset Beach State Park.

Janet lives in Killingworth with her husband and son. In her spare time she finds new adventures to share with her family from day trips to hiking, camping, rockhounding, beachcombing and just being outside, enjoying nature. At the end of a day, she unwinds in her studio making sterling silver jewelry out of sea glass or gemstones. Her work can be found at seasideseaglassjewelry.com or colandreadesign.com.
