About my work
I’ve been making websites since 1999. I was fifteen then. I founded my first WordPress design business on July 16th, 2009, and that business has evolved into this one, SixteenJuly, LLC.
Previously, I worked as a designer/developer for a web agency that was the definition of web agencies. In start-up mode, it was fun. It grew, and then it was less fun. So I left, and now I’m doing this.
I’m not that into business as usual. I want more than that for myself — and for you, too. I genuinely believe that we can have it all – flourishing businesses, financial abundance, ease, and a life that makes us excited to get up in the morning.
In the past eight years, I’ve helped more than 200 small business owners up-level their online spaces.
I’ve worked with clients like NBC Sports, The National Society for Collegiate Scholars, and Mariska Hargitay’s Joyful Heart Foundation — but my true love is personal brand identity & digital strategy. These days I work almost exclusively with female entrepreneurs and woman-owned small businesses. #theluckiest
I’m Evan Leah Quinn. I’m a granola-geek with a scientist’s brain and an artist’s heart.
I’m an outgoing but highly-sensitive INFJ. I enjoy yoga and green smoothies, but you’ll never, ever see me turn down a french fry or a glass of red wine. I’m a natural mama even though I don’t have children of my own. I prefer my home to be filled with people, plants, and animals, and I’ll do anything I possibly can to brighten your day, even if I barely know you.
My passions (outside of making the internet gorgeous and effective) include blogging, papercrafting, mixed-media art, and photography. I take photos with a Canon 60D or my iPhone.
My partner-in-all-things is a brilliant, ornery-but-hilarious man named Randall Tyler. (He goes by R.T.) When he’s not busy being SixteenJuly’s second-in-command, he’s also a musician and a writer – sometimes of the creative sort, and sometimes of the freelance-for-money sort. He loves tacos more than any other food.
We recently started our adventures in homeownership in Tacoma, Washington (which is about 30 miles south of Seattle). We have two dogs, two chinchillas, and a lizard named Leslie Knope.
