My Latest Projects

a sampling of some of my latest projects. to be clear, if you have not realized this about me yet, i believe self-hosted wordpress is the only way to go if there is any chance your business is going to need to adapt or grow. it is because of the endless opportunities that plugins bring to wordpress that we can make anything happen on your site. i do not post all of my projects on my site, i post at my own discretion. schedule a creative consult if you'd like to see how your business fits in.

the creatives classroom | roxanne evans stout

Roxanne was debating moving all of her courses from her Square Space website to a learning platform such as thinkific or kajabi. When she presented this to me, of course, I said a huge, "Why Roxanne???" Instead, let's create your own personal, branded, classroom just for you! You will have unlimited courses, unlimited students, and unlimited freedom to do what you want. She was very familiar with what Learndash integrated with Wordpress can achieve as she had been part of courses that used it on other sites I have developed. Roxanne was in! We first got the domain name that would be complimentary to her main site that is still on SS. The Creatives Classroom. This is a fully custom website built on self-hosted wordpress. 

Building and designing this out was pure joy. Upon opening the new site (or classroom) we had 5 courses to offer including a brand new mini course. We made the decision mid project to not migrate old students to the classroom. They can still access the courses the way they always have. Only students who join a course from within the new classroom, will access the course there. This allowed us to open the site sooner and then take our time to migrate down the road. I wanted to add that tidbit to show that nothing should keep you from making the move. Roxanne is so inspired with the results of the new classroom and the feedback from her students, she is already working on a new course again! I absolutley love this.

Art Center of the Bluegrass | Designed + Developed by Noelle Mena

art center of the bluegrass

What an exciting project! I have been working with so many artists the past 5 years, I was so excited to take on the complete redesign + development of Art Center of the Bluegrass. The Art Center of the Bluegrass connects people to art, culture, and creativity.  Bringing 30,000 people through the doors each year for the national glass museum, art exhibits, classes, workshops, retail space, café, events, community gatherings, cultural conversations, and ceramics studio.  The Art Center of the Bluegrass, reimagining what an art center can be.

What an opportunity to create a space that felt + functioned like the premier art center that it is.  Fully custom site, centered around their vast expansion project. Niki Kinkade, the Executive Director for ACB, wanted a vibrant, modern, but elegant approach. I began with the main site,  Art Center of the Bluegrass and then carried it through the 3 new areas of expansion. GLASS National Art Museum, Murrini Café, Fern: Curated Gifts. The 3 additional sites are one page informational sites that we will continue to expand on. 

This was the first site that I have started to use my own images in the design. All of the photography and art images are mine. I created each one exclusively for the project. I believe this is a total game changer for bringing a client's vision to life.

This is a community of almost 50,000. The project starting in 2017, was to move from NING to self hosted wordpress while keeping all members in place including their enrollments active in each of their courses. All aspects of the site as a whole had to be developed and designed out.

After getting the backend where I wanted it, I then custom designed the frontend such as course layout pages, workshops, portfolio, shop, about, press, profiles, all pages from the start of the site through Feb 7, 2020.  Developing and Integrating business solutions for supporting such a large community. 

After I designed + developed I stayed on for 2+ years to continue designing + developing + maintaining the site and therefore took on a very limited amount of new clients.  After finishing the custom development of Creatively Made Business at the first of 2020, I decided I needed to focus more on my own projects and stepped down from JO.

Lorraine Bell

Lorraine came to me with her Square Space website that she had outgrown and could no longer get the results she was needing to focus on where she wanted her business to go. 

We started with importing her Square Space site into self-hosted wordpress. From there I was able to build out a site she will never out grow. Custom pages for every aspect of her art business along with setting up the ability to host her own courses and podcast. 

With every graphic I designed, I also put it into Canva along with all of her design elements so she can continue to create new ones, or use as templates. 

Custom tutorials were added the back of her site along with all the tutorials she needs to learn how to use her new wordpress site. What a complete joy Lorraine was to work with! Go check her out.

Rochelle Gaukel

Rochelle came to me at a time when I was closing my queue to work on my new course, The Obtainable Website. But her work was so beautiful and she ended up being just as beautiful of a person, I could not say no. 

Rochelle had beautiful images all ready to go of her work. As an artist that is such a huge step in getting started. Just from her first upload of images, I could immediately see a vision for developing the site around them. Her palette jumped out just as fast. Working in neutrals alongside a pop of color, just enough to not compete with your art is the key for most artist. The font Rochelle chose gives a vintage vibe but with a modern take. Lining up completely with her art, voice, and other design elements but on the site and off. Keeping her brand clear.

Like most clients today, she also included offering courses on her new site. Such a great opportunity to diversify your offerings.

Kecia Deveney

Kecia also came to me from her Square Space website that she had outgrown. This happens so often. Square Space will work for you until you outgrow it. 

Kecia had a photographer take images or her, her work and her studio for us to work with. It always makes the beginning steps of defining a client's brand out when you can see such quality imagery mixed with written copy. You want to design from this, not design and then try to fit things in. 

Kecia is an excellent example of not staying neutral. Her colors are vibrant. The key is she uses the colors across all of her work in one or the other so the colors do not compete. 

We expanded Kecia's reach with adding the ability to offer courses right on her site as well. Kecia dove in, like all of my clients and began to learn how to run her business on the backend as well as the front.

Alex castro ferreira

Alex and I met right as the pandemic hit. Her work is just absolutely stunning. She wanted more from her website and found herself a bit stuck.

I came in and restructured the entire site through development, design and function. We have now added the ability for Alex to have her own courses on her site as well. She has had great success in offering her courses. We continue to add as Alex grows in her business. Recently, adding In Person Workshops and Retreats!

What a difference a professional on your side can make.

Melissa auclair

Melissa came to me after she had tried to do it alone on wordpress but could not get the site to come together the way she wanted to offer her art and business. She had learndash on the site already to offer courses but it was not functioning correctly. It is a tedious process to get all working together seamlessly. It was time to get serious and be all in. 

I had Melissa capture some images and then upload them. I worked with them, pulling out ones I saw that would go with the different sections of her site. I created a filter for them all to run through to keep her aesthetic along with custom design elements. I created a logo with many variations as I do with all custom projects. A single version does not work across the many places you will use your logo. You will need to display it differently and should be able to pull from your variations to keep within your overall brand. 

What a difference a professional at your side can make.

all testimonials

Noelle Mena was a pleasure to work with before and during our campaign. Not only was she very responsive to our questions in a timely manner, she also provided valuable input as to how we could get the best results from the campaign. I highly recommend working with Noelle and support her in what she does for Christian Women worldwide.
Debra Mazda
"I struggled for years trying to develop a web site that felt like “me" and represented the Artist I am today. It was not until I worked with Noelle Mena that I found someone who “got me” and was able to pull my vision from my head and heart and translate that into an online home that I absolutely adore. Noelle consistently listened to me and transformed what I scratched onto paper into a perfect site that reflects all I want my customer to experience. Her skills and professionalism made what was a daunting task appear simple and seamless! I appreciated her patience while I tweaked and changed along the way and she didn’t stop until it was ‘just right!’ My site was delivered on time, complete with extensive training and hand-holding through the transition. Noelle not only built a beautiful site for me, but she was also a cheerleader for my business and success. The highlight of my day is when a customer tells me how much they love my new website!"

Thank you, Noelle!! It has been such a joy to work with you on our three websites. You are very talented, creative and professional and knew exactly what we needed to make our websites "pop"!

My Journey of Faith Ministries
Noelle's goal setting bears the mark of both a great starter and finisher. Personally, I have been challenged and encouraged by her enthusiasm, encouragement and empowerment.
Tara Sloan
I can't say enough great things about Noelle! It would be a pleasure to work with her on any project. Even for a techno-phobe like me, she's made the process easy and understandable. I've also learned a lot from her about stepping out on faith with what God has called me to do. She's always available for questions or just to talk.
Nicole Kirksey
When I think of Noelle, I think of a fun, energetic, motivated, driven and powerful world changer. She is absolutely, hands-down one of the most dedicated women I know. As a Webinar Host for CWA, I had lots of questions for her while learning how to set up webinars through her system and how to do it so that my audience would get a ton of value with as few technical glitches as possible. She was not only a great coach because of her patience, but she was also creative and gave great ideas that I could easily run with to make my webinars stand out from the crowd. If you are looking to partner with an amazing, fun and energetic God's Girl, then you must meet Noelle. I am honored to be in her space day in and out.
Maruxa Murphy
A passionate heart for excellence as she pays attention to detail and managing multiple people from all walks of life. Noelle is a trainer, a teacher, a mentor, and an encourager as well as an organizer and administrator and manager. Her energy is apparent as she undertakes each new avenue; her unbelievable ability to multi-task is apparent as she works non-stop to achieve her goals. It's been a pleasure and an honor to work with Noelle.
Jan Ross
My husband Peter and I were very impressed by Noelle's efficiency, professionalism, courtesy, and her willingness to catch the vision of this next phase of our ministry. Noelle, is patient, talented and gifted and she cares about the end result being exactly what you desire. I could see immediately God was leading her. My ministry is like my "baby", and just as I did not easily put my own children into the hands of someone else when they were young, so is true with the ministry God has given me stewardship over for 15 years. However, it was with ease I released it to Noelle's creativity and enthusiasm. I highly recommend Noelle and the services of Mena Vision whether your needs are personal or professional. She went beyond what was expected. You will not be let down. I look forward to my next project with Noelle.
Lisa Shaw

Alice Klitz
Noelle is amazing! I hired Noelle to help me build a new website from scratch, which to me, seemed like such a big undertaking! However, Noelle made it seem easy. She is so genuine and easy to talk to; she just 'get's it'. She was able to see my vision and has done an incredible job with bringing my style into the web design. Thanks Noelle!
Lisa Osborn
Noelle conducts and operates an amazing organization, offers direction when necessary, and encouragement when needed. I thoroughly enjoy the opportunity of knowing her and working with her. I highly recommend her professionalism and work ethic. She is creative, whimsical, and extremely dedicated to excellence.
Julie Gorman
Noelle is one absolutely incredible woman. She serves, leads, dreams, lives with such passion. Her heart to glorify Christ in all she does spills over onto everyone around her. She is a visionary, coming up with ideas that would take people years to come up with. Not only is she a visionary, but she is also a developer, she takes these amazing ideas and develops them into well thought out systems. It's a rare combination to have someone who is a visionary also be someone that can develop the ideas. The creativity, the team building, the leadership skills she possesses make her one amazing woman.
Melissa Mashburn
Noelle's knowledge of design, building a website, integrating multiple platforms and attention to aesthetics was so important and appreciated when I was looking to rebuild my website last year. She not only brought knowledge and skill, but helped me gain confidence in my decisions.
Melissa Auclair
“Through Noelle’s great inquiry skills, she was able to elicit what I wanted for my website and come up with so much more than I expected. Her attention to detail shines through in creating a timeless website for me. She took the vision I had and turned it into reality. I can’t say enough about her professionalism and knowledge and I am very pleased with my website. I would recommend Noelle in a heartbeat.”
Rochelle Gaukel
When it was time for us to upgrade our website into the 21st Century, we found Noelle Mena. We have never regretted that decision as she designed, developed, and maintained our stunning website. Noelle is personable, timely, and gives us instructional videos on how to make basic changes on our website (since we are techno challenged). We highly recommend Noelle for creating fresh, well-designed, efficient websites.

I started working with Noelle after I accidentally crashed my website. After first I was shocked and panicked about what happened with my website, but then I realized that I didn’t really like it - and now was the time to have a site created that I did like. I started looking at artist websites that I enjoyed and studied them. I found one site that I loved and after searching it, found out that it was created by Noelle of The Eclectic Designer. I contacted Noelle, who immediately put me at ease about the situation. I give Noelle huge credit for being very patient with me and all my questions. I’m easily overwhelmed and she was great with encouragement and doable assignments to help her begin. It’s very hard to pinpoint and articulate ideas swirling around in my head, but she managed to ease them out gently and translated them into pivotal creative components to be used in my website. I couldn’t be happier. She leads by offering direction in ways that I didn’t really know could happen. The girl knows what she is doing. I also love that she is willing to offer input or gently nudge me when she thinks we could do better. I highly recommend her and I love that she offers an option to still be available to help maintain the site. Being able to continue reaching out to her with my virtual needs is just what I needed. I feel so much better knowing that she will always be there to support and help me continue to grow my site.
Kecia Deveney
My two-week summer project involved a lot of complex parts and Noelle’s support and skills were invaluable in executing the faith-based wellness program. She was forward-thinking which helped circumvent problems in advance. In addition, she was very enthusiastic and motivating to provide much needed support during critical times. Overall Noelle provided an exceptional value for her services. I firmly believe anyone that teams up with Noelle will benefit greatly.
Coach Liz
Noelle's impact on our network has been priceless. Noelle Mena is one of the most talented and hard working women I have ever had the privilege to work with. When you come to she is the amazing builder of this site. If you ever need a web designer I can promise you that you will find no one better.
Jeanne Oliver
Noelle designed and maintains my website ( I love how the website turned out. She has been maintaining my website for 4 years. It requires updating every two weeks. She is a joy to work with on an on-going basis. She displays a careful attention to detail, and is responsive, positive, and makes great suggestions for how to improve the website. She works well with the rest of my team. I recommend Noelle without reservation.
Sara Holtz
I have found Noelle to be one of the most knowledgeable, positive, encouraging, and inspiring women I've met online. She is an expert in webinars, and is an excellent speaker, writer, and teacher as well. She is a woman of integrity with a strong faith in Christ and has a huge heart of love. Her devotion to her family is evident and inspiring. I highly recommend working with Noelle for your webinar or other online business needs.
Beth Jones
We had been part of a "build your own" website for our industry where you filled in the blanks. No one ever mentioned our website and it was boxy & boring. My life coach suggested I contact Noelle. We met on Skype and within that hour she understood I wanted personality, class, flare... and there was NO WAY I was going to get there without help as I am "website silly". She talked about things from Mars. But I could feel that I could trust her. I put it in her hands and just picked out pictures I liked. Which most of my pics didn't even work as I really don't get this process. BUT...our website is FABULOUS and she did a great job crawling inside my head & expressing my vision online. Thank you Noelle... we are not finished. I will be in touch after the New Year!! I want more of your magic.

My website needed a relevant design and more functionality for less cost than I paid previously. Noelle's visionary mind, creative eye for design, and expert ability to apply the latest technology to brand and restart my website brought my ideas to life!
