Dawn Russell formed Artisan Web and Print, located in downtown Brattleboro Vermont, in 2010 after completing graduate studies in Web Development at Marlboro Graduate School. She trained extensively with author and Joomla! expert Barrie North for two years before taking over his small hosting company and customer base at My Artisan Web (formerly Simplweb).  Her skills in design were cultivated during her Master's program at SUNY New Paltz in Fine Art where she took every opportunity to visit museums and design houses in New York City.  It was during this time that she refined her eye, aesthetic and love for design and art.  Her combination of design, business savvy, and technological knowledge provides a unique blend for her clients.


  • Dawn is an extremely talented, professional and skilled web designer and developer. Her coding skills are second to none and with her design/graphics background this is a winning combination. I was looking for someone to collaborate with that didn't need a lot of hand holding and was customer focused. I also wanted someone who was original and could think outside the box, Dawn fits the bill to a tee! Dawn is deadline driven and extremely professional in both her dealings with me and with my customers. I highly recommend her.

  • I recently had the opportunity to offer usability testing support to Dawn on a web redesign project she was managing. It was evident from the start she's well organized, an effective communicator and excellent designer. Despite tight timelines between pilot and full usability testing sessions, she was able to complete necessary prototype revisions. Dawn is very professional, focused, approachable and has consistent follow through. I feel confident she would be an asset to any company who opts to work with her.

  • We had the pleasure of working with Artisan Web & Print when we decided to upgrade our website. The redesign went through the steps of defining goals, outlining improvements, and ultimately implementing a responsive content framework that works across devices. Artisan’s attention to detail and skilled web and design knowledge shone through the entire process. My questions and comments were always addressed with a timely and detailed response, which, when running a small business, is essential. We have also seen a measurable increase in web traffic as a result of the new website.
