How did it all start?

The story behind Worth It Designs.

Why I Created This Company

I created Worth It Designs to make a difference. To work with people that embrace social good. To work with those who enhance efforts around mental health. To work with those who advocate for animal welfare. To work with those who help the environment. To work with those who fight for equality. To work with those who write books that change our conversations around important issues.

This is the essence of Worth It Designs. It’s a company here to help you help others. To provide solutions that expand your positive social impact through the growth of your organization. To make the world a better place, together.

How it came to be

I always used to want my career to be in business, especially something marketing related. That is, until I could no longer handle being taught to sell things using only borderline truth, pushing products, services, and practices that I didn’t ethically agree with, and more.

In university I changed my major from Business to Sociology, and everything changed. I was learning about how cruel the world could be, but also ways in which we could change it. Ways that we could give back to society, push for equality, and take a stand against those who are pushing back on these efforts.

I now knew that I could make a difference, but how? What kept calling my name was web design, which I had done as a hobby for years (in addition to graphic design), but I wanted to be sure if I took that path that I could still be doing good. That’s when I decided to attend a web design program, become a freelancer, and only work on projects that furthered efforts I believed in.

I then created Worth It Designs, named that way because we are all worthy of love, respect, and belonging. And I extend this sentiment to animals too.

About

Meet Michelle…

Your secret weapon for great design!

I, Michelle Balge, am the face behind Worth It Designs and graduated from Sheridan College’s Post-Graduate Web Design Certificate Program with Honours. I hold an Honours BA in Sociology with a Concentration in Critical Animal Studies from Brock University, and was one course shy of completing a Business Minor because I chose to pursue web design studies instead.

It’s so important to me that you’re excited about what’s being created and pleased with the whole process. I want to make things as smooth as possible for you to reach your goals.

I design websites and sales pages that are functional, strategic, beautiful, and impactful. With a totally custom website that is unlike any other, it becomes an experience that emotionally connects to your audience. The same holds true for sales pages, with more leads and more sales than ever before. No matter what you’re looking for, I will discuss with you how we can strategically meet your objectives.

Beyond my design career and education, I am a mental health advocate, author, and animal lover. I have lived experience with mental illness, and have spent years advocating for mental health awareness by doing things such as leading a university club and now public speaking. I have written a memoir about my illnesses and recovery that is now an Amazon #1 Best Seller in Teen Depression, and am so happy it’s having a positive impact on others. I adore animals, am a vegetarian, and after taking animal related courses in university, I now have a deeper understanding of how brilliant they are. All of the above, plus more, make up who I am. If you’d like to learn more, feel free to chat with me!

I’d love to work with you!
