About

So, you’re looking for a “bright” design solution?

You’ve come to the right place.

Hi! My name is Caryn Newton. Lantern Glow Design is lighting the way to bright visual communication and smart web solutions. With Photoshop, Dreamweaver and a bit of Javascript and PHP, I create unique, functional websites. Check out my portfolio or services list to see what I can do for you. Or contact me here.

Benefits of working with Lantern Glow Design:

  • Custom design to target your audience’s emotions and create experiences
  • A designer who works with you and keeps you informed through every step of the process
  • Easy to update web solutions with a smart setup to work for your business and budget
  • A variety of design services for your convenience

I started Lantern Glow Design, my freelance graphic and web design studio, in 2009 so I could bring my passion for visual design to businesses who’ve “seen the light” in understanding the importance of visually organized and attractive information. The business name stands for the guidance I provide, bringing four years of training and six years of real-world experience to my clients’ projects. I know that budgets and quality services can come together to result in great design that really works for a business, and I’m committed to making that happen inside a process that puts the highest priority on customer service.

Testimonials

I wouldn’t change a thing.

The simplicity of the whole service process. I was provided an easy to understand estimate, the work order/payment process was straight-forward, and the actual work was done in a timely fashion. The phone support was excellent as well. All my questions were answered promptly and explained in a manner in which a WordPress newbie like myself could understand…Caryn Newton was a pleasure to work with and her pricing was very affordable. Great professional support for a great price. You’re doing everything perfectly… I wouldn’t change a thing.

Professional. Efficient. Detailed.

Caryn is one of the most professional, efficient, and detailed graphic designers I have ever worked with. I’ve worked with a variety of designers, and Caryn, by far, is top notch. She delivers ahead of schedule and is very conscious of producing a quality product for her clients. She goes above and beyond and will search for an answer when she may not know it. Her priority is her client and their needs, and it shows in her customer service and attention to delivering a product that her clients will be proud to tell others about.

I’m so thrilled to have discovered Caryn and her many talents and look forward to working with her on more projects throughout the years.

Skill, Savvy and Value

“Caryn Newton is a talented and accomplished graphic designer with an all-too-rare work ethic. More than that, she’s an earnest, insightful businessperson who understands the importance of listening to the client — both what’s said and what isn’t — to glean the true scope of a project’s needs. She’s versatile, equally at home in print and on the screen, with a rich skill set and a refreshing can-do attitude. Caryn doesn’t make excuses for why something can’t be done, she finds ways to make it happen. She displays a personal and professional maturity almost unheard of in a young person today, and always invests herself fully in the outcome of any project she tackles. Best of all for a small business like ours, Caryn is self-directed and doesn’t require a lot of supervision.

She’s capable of owning an idea and bringing it to full fruition, while knowing when she needs to ask for guidance from the client. I can honestly say I couldn’t have gotten through our last several seasons without her. Whoever chooses to add Caryn to their creative team will soon realize they’ve made an excellent business decision. She’s the whole package: skill, savvy and value…and fun, to boot!”
