Allison Kramer, an expert in Graphic & Web Design, grew up in both Denver and Vail, and as the owner of Sweet Buzz Media, she still spends time in both communities.
However, if Allison hadn’t launched Sweet Buzz Media some seven years ago, she might be out in Hollywood designing animated scenes for three dimensional films. Allison resides at the intersection of computer graphics and Georgia O’Keefe. Her roots and initial training were as a fine artist with a BFA (University of Dayton, Ohio) and then she spent years continuing her education by taking extensive coursework in the astonishing world of computer graphics. Allison brings an artistic sensibility to every web project she works on, but she “paints” within the complexities of the digital world.
Allison honed her web design and graphics capabilities while working for large Colorado corporations but what she longed for was the direct, hands-on connection she so treasured between artist and subject. Sweet Buzz Media is a reflection of those connections.
Though Allison works with clients nationwide, she particularly enjoys taking the hopes and dreams of small business owners and translating those feelings into the images and words of websites.
Allison gets tremendous enjoyment out of working with women-owned businesses as well as businesses that reflect her many interests including skiing, food and wine, yoga, fitness, health and wellness. Sweet Buzz Media serves clients throughout the Denver Metro and mountain areas.
