helping you access the power of the web...



We serve a large variety of clients!

Mintaka Design serves many different markets and our clients range from single artists to medium-sized manufacturing businesses. Many are located in Michigan, but we serve clients from all over the United States. Each client is different and we strive to develop websites that reflect the goals of the individual, the culture of the organization and the audience we are trying to reach. We are proud of the websites we design for our customers and of the ongoing relationships we develop with them. Featured in our web design portfolio are websites that we have designed and built across a range of industries and organizations.

Below are just a few examples in these categories:    



Artists & Authors



Lou Kasischke, one of the survivors of the 1996 Mount Everest tragedy, has recently released his book, "After the Wind." Visit his website to view the beautiful illustrations and to learn how to purchase the book. Lou contacted us for both web and marketing assistance. We loved the book. Check it out!

Site is temporarily down for upgrade!

I had no previous experience with website design. I soon realized that it is a developmental process that involves important communication and collaboration. The process was well organized and led to a creative and effective design. The outcome exceeded my expectations. I give a strong recommendation in support of Mintaka Design.

Visit the new website we created for Heidi A. Marshall, a northern Michigan pastel artist. Her mobile responsive site features lightbox popups and tools to indicate specifications of her paintings. Beautiful art by a talented artist!

You did a spectacular job. I am over the moon. Thank you Marta!!!!!!

We created a new website for Sacred Heart of Jesus in Munising, Michigan in 2017.  They were looking for an inspirational design that would communicate the many ways this Catholic church connects with its parishioners.

I can't begin to express our gratitude for all of the work you have done in helping us design and develop our new website. It is beautiful not only with the photos and art design but with all of the content. You knew what we were looking for - that was the best part. You made it easy for us. Thank you so much for all you have done.

Food & Beverage


Millie's on Main, a popular restaurant on Mackinac Island, entices customers and recruits employees with their website.


Horn's Bar, a hopping night scene on Mackinac Island, has a large following on its website. Visitors watch for new entertainment and enjoy the island webcam. We launched a new responsive site in 2022.

Hotels, Home Rentals and Bed & Breakfasts


Metivier Inn's website features beautiful photographs in an interactive photo gallery, rate charts, and a redesign of their logo.


Main Street Inn & Suites on Mackinac Island needed a site to showcase the beautiful suites and convenient location on the island. Slideshows and descriptions give visitors a wonderful feel for this elegant hotel. They have integrated social media on their website through links to their Facebook business page.



The Mackinac Island Yacht Club worked with Mintaka Design to develop a website to highlight member activities and services of their organization. The site includes an interactive calendar updated by the Executive Committee as well as the club manager. A password-protected Members Only section keeps members up-to-date on policies and administrative issues.

Nonprofit Organizations


Join us in supporting one of our favorite nonprofits, Mackinac Associates! We created a new responsive website to inform visitors of the many benefits of being a member.
Mackinac Associates supports Mackinac State Historic Parks' programs which preserve the historic sites and the beautiful natural resources of the Straits of Mackinac area.

Mintaka Design created an appealing, clean and intuitive website for Mackinac Associates. Marta and staff were creative, responsive and quick to deliver an excellent product at a reasonable rate. Five stars, two thumbs up, and any other 100% approval rating for Mintaka Design.

The Mackinac Island Community Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving and enriching life for residents and visitors of Mackinac Island. This newly designed, responsive site outlines the many giving opportunities available through the Foundation. The site is adaptable to the viewing device whether it is a desktop computer, tablet or mobile phone. Having a responsive site improves search engine rankings on mobile devices.

Thank you for everything: Your kind words, your quick responses and always your professionalism.

Wings of Mackinac has a beautiful website with many photos of butterflies featured in this Mackinac Island conservatory. The site is a wonderful educational resource for those interested in lepidoptera. In 2015 we launched a new look for the site developed under responsive design. This platform adapts the viewers' experience based on the device used to view the site and provides benefits for mobile SEO.


Customers order delicious, award-winning fudge year-round. The e-commerce site tracks orders and customers, allows customer logins, prints shipping labels automatically and allows multiple payment processing options.

Working with Mintaka Design has been not only a professional, but enjoyable experience. Marta has always listened to my input as a business owner and provided the perfect amount of guidance to produce a web page that is both creative and user friendly. I would highly recommend Mintaka Design for other business owners interested in redesigning their website.

We developed the Mackinac Island Carriage Tours website under our new "responsive" development platform in 2015. This platform optimizes the user experience for mobile devices. As more visitors are accessing sites via their smartphones, it is becoming more important to develop sites that offer a different layout for different screen sizes.

Northern Periodontics and Implant Dentistry


We launched a new website for Northern Periodontics and Implant Dentistry. This site showcases the variety of services and high quality care provided by these health professionals. One goal was to provide visitors with easy-to-understand information about the oral health procedures they offer.
