Oomph Studios is a brand and website design service company that was born out of my passion for website design. My name is Kelly Sims and yes, I am a website nerd. I love designing websites, building them, customizing them and watching the results of my clients’ visions come to life on the screen.
I began creating websites by building my first business’ website in 2007 using some online tutorials, a book on HTML and a little help from my tech-savvy brother. When a colleague saw the results of my work, she asked me to customize her website. After listening to my protests of, “I’m not a web designer,” and promptly ignoring them, she insisted that I at least try. Well, try I did and she loved the results. This spiraled and after about a year of consistently being approached by clients for web design projects even after insisting “I am not a website designer,” I came to the realization that I LOVE DESIGNING WEBSITES. I began reading more about CSS and HTML – all the stuff that sounds absolutely sleep inducing to normal people was positively enthralling to me and finally, I added Web design to my list of services in 2008. Today, Oomph Studios uses WordPress to make our websites more user-friendly for our clients and I am just as passionate about design today as I was when I first came to the realization that I LOVE THIS STUFF!
Oomph Studios is a result of me deciding to let my obsession run wild! But web design is only part of the Oomph Studios package. With the help of our talented graphic designer François Leclerk, we also produce business brands with OOMPH! Frank is a life-long artist who possesses a D.E.C. in Illustration & Design from Dawson College in Montréal, as well as an A.E.C. in Graphic Design from the Demers Institute. He has worked in the field of graphic design since 2003 and has produced a variety of projects including identity design (logos, stationary) as well as pamphlets, brochures, posters and all kinds of publicity for well-established small and medium sized businesses.
