About Lesia Design

We make fantastic websites, can help with any user interface problem you may have, and can design some amazing and affordable logos.

Lesia Payne of Lesia DesignThe Lesia Design team is lead by our namesake, Lesia Payne. She has been working in the field of web and software design and development since 1999 as a freelancer, and started Lesia Design in 2006.  She holds the only (as far as she knows!) Bachelor of Science in Interaction Design  degree in Saskatchewan - a specialized degree obtained in 2004 that is specifically useful for creating user-centered designs and interfaces. She is an honest, family-oriented mother of two boys, and holds honour and integrity above all else. Lesia always looks to foster long term personal relationships with each and every one of her clients. This is how she has successfully grown her company year after year. 

Lesia Design's primary method of marketing is via positive word of mouth recommendations (see testimonials below). Form follows function in terms of website usability. We follow a thorough User Experience (UX) Design Process with all of our custom website designs. Usability is key. People like user-friendly and clean websites, and so does Google - so it's a win win! A little bit of leg work in the beginning (working together with you to create a solid information architecture or wireframe prototypes, for example) can make sure that your website meets your goals and provides a fantastic return on investment. Not only do we pay specific personal attention to each clients' needs, we make every client as though they are our only client. This is why we call ourselves a "boutique" web development company where you are not just a number and are never lost in the shuffle.

We also only hire Canadian developers for our websites, unlike many of our Saskatoon competitors.

We create professional, elegant, clean, and user friendly designs for small to large businesses.

Although we are a small "boutique" firm, you will never be left hanging just because Lesia goes on vacation. Lesia Design is a team of:

  • 2 user experience professionals
  • 3 web, visual, and logo designers
  • 1 search engine optimization specialist
  • 3 front-end and back-end programmers
  • 1 social media marketing specialist
  • 1 web writer
  • 1 QA specialist

It was a pleasure working with Lesia Design on the design and implementation of our corporate blog and corporate website. The service Lesia provided was excellent – she was always available to answer questions and was very efficient in her work. We were very pleased with the outcome.

Michael Milo, Saskatchewan Health Quality Councilhqc.sk.ca

Camp Fircom was thrilled to work with Lesia Design on the new website. When people call the office to inquire about renting at Fircom the first thing they say is, "I was looking at your website and I am interested in..." This never happened before! No one ever called to say they were looking at the website and were interested in us. We also receive many inquiries through the form on our website proving yet again how powerful a tool a great website is. We can't thank Lesia enough for her help in creating a beautiful, meaningful, navigable website for our organization.
