With Designer Elizabeth McCravy

Free to Be Me – A Showit Creator Series

Elizabeth McCravy is a phenomenally successful website designer. From a young age, she loved to create on the computer. What a great bonus she created things that people were excited to share! Starting with MySpace layouts in middle school, and now, designing Showit templates as one of our top design partners. 

Her trajectory has not gone without major challenges, doubt or heartache. But what we learn from Elizabeth’s story is the power of sound encouragement. Elizabeth's dad was someone who spoke words of life and encouragement into her creative heart. He was a serial entrepreneur himself, and he just knew his daughter would follow in his footsteps one day.

A Successful Website Designer's Story

Elizabeth thought she wanted a corporate job. And so she got one, and was happy at first. But then she realized she is a homebody who loves working from home! So when she was able to make a good income as a freelancer, she knew she had become an entrepreneur, just as her father had predicted!

One day Elizabeth found Showit, and the rest is history. Or herstory in Elizabeth's case. All the skills she learned designing MySpace layouts resurfaced. She was very excited that she had found a true drag and drop website builder. It felt very intuitive and a lot like Photoshop to her. Even though being a successful website designer isn't something she planned on – it is what she has become! And she couldn't be happier about it.
