Steph Sedgwick

Founder & Creative

Over more than 11 years in the industry, Steph has learned that accessible, inclusive websites are not just a social responsibility but also a smart choice for the entire internet. Steph continually seeks new ways to make the internet a better experience for users of all abilities, and ways to empower all businesses to have a powerful online presence.

We are a micro design agency specializing in fast, functional websites for female entrepreneurs.

Having a website doesn’t mean your customers will magically find you online. The internet is chock full of pretty but useless — or worse, complicated — websites. Your site is like a houseplant: it needs care and attention to flourish. 

Your business and your website need to stand out. A great website puts a virtual face to your brand’s name, and helps people decide whether they want to work with you. The best way to shine through the noise online is with a well designed, clean, and accessible website that any user can enjoy. 

An added bonus? Search engines will like you better too. Of all the websites out there, only 2% are considered accessible-friendly. Good design is good for everyone, and it’s time for your website to be the amazing sales generation tool it was intended to be.

Our Core Values

Web accessibility means that websites, tools, and technologies are designed and developed so that people with disabilities can use them. The beautiful thing is that designing for Accessibility also enhances your brand, drives innovation, and extends your market reach.

In today’s world, we all crave genuine, authentic connection. Those connections cannot happen without genuine caring: for each other, for our actions, and for our planet.

We are committed to our mission and to making the internet a better place for all its users. We won’t try to sell you on anything we don’t genuinely believe will be of value to YOU and your business.

We believe relationships of mutual trust are critical to mutual success. We work with clients to achieve that level of mutual trust so that we can all succeed.


We’re on a mission to make the internet a better place for all its users by empowering female entrepreneurs to have functional, findable websites.


We want to reset the industry standard in providing unique, sustainable web design services that improve your findability and online presence.

Client Reviews

I LOVE the speed with which my website could be "fixed". Most companies told me that I had to rebuild my entire website, it would be triple the cost, and take months. I was thrilled that Stephanie could improve and enhance both the functionality and design of my website in 21 days. I also loved the detailed step-by-step process, education on how to maintain my website, and Stephanie's quick response to my questions and concerns. My favourite result is the ease with which you can navigate the website. It is clear, accessible and mobile-friendly. The speed is MUCH faster and the website is performing well in search engines ensuring that my business is visible to potential new clients. ~ January 2022
Before meeting Steph, we had a website that was okay but not spectacular. We’re a small team providing specialized services, so I don’t have the time to manage it myself. Having it was actually more of a chore than anything else, and honestly I felt that we weren’t a priority for the company we were paying to manage. That company couldn’t identify our website traffic sources, our so-called “leads” were inaccurate, and so we had no way to verify that the website was even worth having. For every 10 inquiries, we might get one conversion to an actual sale but only after lots of time spent back and forth on each one. Now our conversions are more like 1 in 5 or higher. I can rely on Steph and her expertise to handle any questions I have. We get tons of great feedback from everyone who sees the site, and our clients love its professional look. Now I think our website is so great that we are busier than ever! ~ September 2021
Before [Steph's 21 Day Website Fix], my website was exactly the same as I left it 3 years ago, felt and looked no different that any other real estate agent site. Boring, too busy and very slow. With Steph, I felt that I would be working with someone who would listen without sales pressure to get me where I needed to be. The website now reflects me, and my business. It's simple, fast and includes only the components that are necessary. If you're thinking about signing up, Do it! It is such a huge weight off my back and you will feel exactly the same way. Steph is so approachable and she not knows all there is to know about web design, she goes the distance to understand your business and where you need it to be. I've never had such a great experience before, especially in an area I know so little about; I didn't feel taken over, I felt taken care of. Thank you! ~ December 2021
Steph! Thank you so much for creating an amazing new website for my small (and growing!) business! I really enjoyed working with you, you made the process easy by walking me through everything along the way. From creating a new logo, to designing the site, and helping with the writing, I appreciated your insights and how deeply you understood my unique business. Thank you! ~ November 2019
Steph is simply incredible. From her amazing listening skills, to her creativeness, and then her follow through, I have been amazed at every step of the way. I am so very proud of my new website and it’s all because of Brightwebs. It’s the only business I’d recommend!!! ~ August 2018

Stephanie from Bright Webs is a talented business professional with a creative mind. She helped to guide my start up business website design and logo creation. It is rare to find this level of creative talent combined with the business savvy she can offer. Prices were more than reasonable for the services provided and I felt assured and confident that she would see the project carried out to the very end. Thank-you Bright Webs for taking the stress out of the "back of house" aspects required to start up a business and for delivering such a high quality product with a professional image! ~ March 2017

Stephanie at Bright Webs was a lifesaver. She took my jumbled thoughts and wishes and turned them into a professional, accessible, successful website. Her high standards and attention to detail put me at ease. She has kept herself available as the business has grown and held my hand over all the bumps. Thank you Stephanie! ~ July 2017
