Behind OwlTech Designs
Amalia Toy-Henson is the brain behind the designs at OwlTech Designs and a passionate small-business owner. She is a mother of two active toddlers and a cat-mom to three rescues. She is an avid cross-stitcher, crafter of all things paper and a collector of everything tea. Amalia is mostly self-taught from "over-the-shoulder-watching" of her older brother, John, program robots and write gaming programs. She turned to books and online classes to learn more. Amalia changed her high school classes mid-term, leaving floral arrangements behind to take the advanced computer class. After showing an aptitude for designing and programming in her new class, Amalia started to form her business plan. Feeling confident, she took the idea to her teacher who lined up her very first client.
In her small town community it took off like a wildfire; from teaching clients how to use computer programs like photoshop and movie maker to designing websites for local restaurants. Amalia has designed many websites for local businesses in her community, as well as doing website maintenance, teaching computer programs, designing marketing materials like business cards and technical computer support.
She offers a variety of graphic design services to help you brand your business, including photography for your website. Having started small, with only 5 clients, Amalia likes to "keep it real and keep it affordable."
"I come from a small town, everybody knows everybody. I see small family-owned businesses paying hard earned money they don't have to promote their business and get it out there on the internet. My goal with starting Owl Tech was to create a company designed to help the little guy, the mom & pop shops, and generations of family-owned businesses...it still is. I want to take away the hassle and stress of it by keeping it simple, easy, professional, and most of all affordable."
