Kind Words from those who make it all possible



Professionalism paired with artistic input and genuine care for the client...I could not be more happy that we chose Shopfront Creative to design our website!

Shannon Halford and Shopfront Creative have taken my businesses to a whole new level. Not only did she design websites and create marketing plans, she implemented both in a way that was effective and efficient. Classes and Workshops are filling up at the studio and people are showing up at our gigs. Her work has inspired me to become better at what I already did well. Unlike any other coach or boss or director I've had, Shannon worked with me in a way that was encouraging and collaborating but also empowering. Thank you, Shannon!

Shannon was an amazing asset from the initial planning of our organizational fundraiser, through the event and post event wrap-up. She possessed a true desire to understand our mission and could easily relay our purpose through her talents as an innovative marketer. We were blessed to have her dedicate such incredible artistic energies to our project.

"Some people and companies just get it. Shopfront creative is one of those companies. I highly invite you to have a conversation with this company if you need a hand creating one of the best brands in Central Illinois. Pour Bros. Craft Taproom can attest!"

Just wanted to say how happy I am with my new website from Shopfront Creative. Working with Shannon was a great experience. She is a very creative person who worked long hours creating a very clean, intuitive, and attractive site without much input from me. I highly recommend her.

Shopfront has been a wonderful asset to Enact Impact! Before we started working with Shannon, my team really struggled to write compelling content that was enjoyable and educational for our readers. Shannon works to learn about your target user audience and their motivations when creating content. She also understands popular social media trends and how to engage your audience. We feel very fortunate to have begun working with Shopfront Creative and know our marketing worries are now a concern of the past.

Shannon has put my mind at ease, knowing that her work will definitely meet my standards, and in most cases, surpass my own work in excellence. My favorite part has been utilizing her strengths in marketing, social media, and content development. I look forward to working with her for a long time.

At 2PR Chicks, we consider Shannon to be our "third chick".  She keeps our business running and our clients happy. She is flexible and fast on her feet. We don't know what we'd do without her. When I count my blessings, she is at the top of my list. Shannon, YOU ARE THE BEST!!! Thanks a million!

We were able to quickly move into content marketing strategy and implementation right from the start. The assistance Shannon has provided in that area of our business has been invaluable. She brings a strong skill set that is matched only by her passion for quality. I cannot recommend her highly enough and look forward to working with her for the long run as we grow our business together.
