Design Guru

My name is Barbi Larkins. It took me 42 years to decide what I wanted to be when I grew up.

I went to university to study design. But after I graduated, I suffered from Imposter Syndrome. I didn’t think I could make it doing what I loved. So I did what was easy. I had a job offer. I took it. And I spent the next 20 years in business management.

WHICH I HATED.

When the kids were nearly grown, I thought it might be time to discover what I wanted to do with the rest of my life. And to my surprise, I found that already knew. I went back to design. And I loved it. And it turns out I am actually REALLY GOOD at it.

For awhile, I grieved over all the years I lost doing something that wasn’t for me. Then I realized something important.

I HAD TO GO WHERE I WENT TO GET TO WHERE I AM.

Those years weren’t wasted it all. What they did was give me perspective.

When I design your website, I know what things look from your side. Because I’ve been on your side. I know what businesses need. That kind of knowledge only comes from hard-earned experience.
I love what I do. I bring my love for design, my technical expertise and my insider business knowledge to put together websites that are beautifully usable and effective.

Be Design is amazing to work with. Barbi is very creative, easy to work with, flexible, and can competently handle a wide range of projects. She's my go-to person when I need help with anything -- print or web -- and I'm over the moon to be working with her.
An awesome website developer who was so affordable and easy to work with. I appreciate her patience and I love the end result! I am totally recommending her to everyone!
