About US


By Kessler

We are a husband and wife duo based in Columbia SC. Our goal is to help local businesses grow and thrive by providing a beautiful online presence and effective means of communicating with customers.

Craig Kessler

Coming from a graphic arts background, I began designing websites years ago. In 2012 I became a partner and Head of Internet Marketing for an internet marketing firm specializing in local service industries across the United States. I have honed the ability to create effective website designs and various other web properties to create more business for local businesses.

For the past six years, I have built over 200 websites a year and more than triple that amount of other web properties. I have developed a very streamlined, effective process – all done by hand without any automated tools.

While these efforts have created a very long resume of work, I do keep the clients I have from my partner company private. However, you can view some of my own designs for local businesses in around Columbia in our portfolio.

Originally from Valley City, Ohio (just south of Cleveland, Go Cavs!), I have lived and worked in South Carolina for 20 years. I married the love of my life in 2015. I have two beautifully spirited almost teenage twins, Tristan and Olivia, and an incredibly vivacious baby girl, Piper Elizabeth so there is never a dull moment at home. I am 6’6″ tall while my wife stands at 5’4″ (when she tries really hard). You can often catch the five of us hanging out at our neighborhood pool, playing games in our front yard, hiking, or building things together. Faith and family is what it’s all about.

I have been involved in the performing arts and entertainment industry my entire adulthood. However, I have always loved business, marketing, and design. With experience in creative fields as well as training and knowledge in business and structural design, my usage of both the right and left sides of my brain give me a unique perspective and understanding when it comes to web design and development.

I have acted as a web design assistant with Designs by Kessler beginning in 2014 and have designed, created, and managed several websites and social media accounts over that time. You can view a few of my web designs here. Beginning in 2017, I took a larger role in the company to become the Chief Business Officer. While I am still very involved with designing websites and mobile apps, as well as managing other web properties, my primary funtion within the company is managing the financial, administrative, advertising, and operational areas.

A true Carolina Girl, I was born and raised in Aiken, South Carolina. I have moved around a bit, living in Utah, New York, and Virginia, but I couldn’t get away from the pull of the south. I married my gentle giant in August of 2015 and got a sweet three for one deal, adding step-mommy to twins, Tristan and Olivia, to my resume. In April of 2018, we welcomed our little bundle of sunshine, Piper Elizabeth, to the world. Family is first and I love to work hard, but if you can’t find me, I’m probably by the sea.

"As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another."
