? Profile

I am the CEO and Sr. Web Producer of Zenful Creations and the Creative Director here at iKarma. I have over 19 years of hands-on-experience designing web sites from small start-up companies, to known names such as JaRule and Bernard Hopkins.

While most of my experience has been hard earned as a freelancer from my home office I have been involved with several successful internet ventures including Cyber Networks Inc., Dermdex/Salu, and SkinStore.com preforming as an integral part of their executive management teams.

It is my goal to design websites that are well thought out and aesthetically pleasing, while focusing on usability. All Zenful Creations are implemented using hand-coded XHTML and CSS for accuracy and efficiency, adhere to W3C-established web standards and are cross-browser/cross-platform compatible.

I am an avid follower of Social Networking and Word of Mouth Marketing, and the use of its reliable tactics in helping to grow my business. I am active in the blog sphere and follow along with all the current WOM trends. I would say I am equally skilled in WOM Networking and Standard Compliant Design.

Key Products:
I provide complete corporate communication solutions including Standard Compliant Website Design & Development, Business Blogging 101, and Marketing 2.0 (social capital, blogging, engagement)

Online Reputation Management:
Social capital is built by design, not chance - I can show you how to use what you never knew you had!

"Lori at Zenful Creations, Inc. is by far the most talented and professional Web and graphics designer that I have been in contact with. I am the Founder and President of Sock Monkey Ministries, Inc. She took a simple creative logo and made a web design theme that flowed effortlessly. She took and idea and created a masterpiece. I asked her for some assistance with my current web page as it was giving me problems, she dedicated over 12 hours and created a complete web site and had it up and ru"   more...

"Aside from a wonderful and creative design mind, I have to say no one works harder than Lori. As we built iKarma.com together, her ability to design a beautiful layout within a short time frame was impeccable. And, while I’m sure she got tired of hearing from me late at night, Lori never complained about the long hours or the re-designs. She just kept smiling and worked diligently to complete the project.

Before coming to iKarma as President, I have found that many people cannot handle t"   more...

"Lori is an energetic and unstoppable force of brains and beauty. Her knowledge of design and the underlying code that ties it all together have been instrumental in helping us bridge the gap between what looks good, and what works. Lori’s competence is founded in her deep knowledge all aspects of design and the techniques she uses to turn her vision into reality.

Eliot Jacobson, Ph.D. Rating Given:
"Never use this person, never!

I asked for two sites -- things went along well at first. When the initial sites were delivered, they were in two zip files (one for each site). One site worked when I unpacked the zip file, the other did not -- it didn't have the right files in it.

I wrote to Lori and asked what to do, she told me to copy x to y. But, her directions were wrong. I had to read the HTML to figure it out.

Later I asked her to do something to the header -- she gave me a ve"   more...

After delivery files (which WERE properly packaged, not properly uploaded by him) and final payment, Eliot began to send unpleasant emails degrading my work, and professionalism because he caused errors with what was provided by making changes that he did not have the skills to make. Full email discussions and coded sites available on request.
