My name is Caitlyn Grabenstein and I am a professional website designer and artist based out of Delaware County, Pennsylvania. Through CLG Design Co., I offer website design, website maintenance, social media management, professional graphics, original artwork (as Cult Class), and more.
I started doing art and design at a very young age and have pursued it in different forms throughout my life. I began creating WordPress websites for my charitable music business, BANDADE, in 2013. Through my business, I worked with artists like Imagine Dragons, Jason Isbell, Maren Morris, Ingrid Michaelson, the Goo Goo Dolls, Alabama Shakes, Florence Welch, and more. While working with BANDADE, I did all social media, advertising, design, sponsorship outreach, web builds, financial management, and show booking for the company. We ultimately hosted more than 50 charitable shows with over 60 different artists.
In 2015, while running my charitable business and working at Broadcast Music, Inc., in Nashville, I was hired by a contractor, a company with over 40 million dollars in revenue, to redesign their website.
I migrated their site to WordPress and a new server, redesigned the entire website, imported all data, optimized the SEO (moving the site from pages back on Google search to the first result), and installed Google Analytics. Then I worked to maintain the backend of the website and its plugins. During this time, I also worked as a freelance designer creating websites for several local businesses, artists, and individuals, through both WordPress and Squarespace. Each site was (and is) built to the customer’s preferences and requests.
Beyond web design, I now work as a graphic and collage artist under the name Cult Class.
From my experience running a business and creating graphics across several different industries, I know the importance of aesthetic to a company’s, or individual’s, brand.
I recommend WordPress to any individual or business that wants a lot of customization, several pages, or complex components. I design through WordPress because it provides exceptional customization for websites and has an excellent, longstanding reputation in the industry. Through plugins, custom CSS, and excellent templates, our options are nearly limitless. Your site will be both desktop and mobile friendly.
I recommend Squarespace to any individual or business that wants a creative, modern, clean website or one page. I design through Squarespace because it is the most modernized web builder on the market. With their beautiful layouts and extremely progressive coding, your site will be sleek and adapt to mobile seamlessly. Your site will be both desktop and mobile friendly.
Need your website to be maintained and updated after the initial build? Or do you need just minor changes to your current site? I can do that!

Through years of experience with Adobe, Canva, and Microsoft Word, I can create beautiful, custom graphics for your business, ranging from brochures to flyers, to folders, to business cards, to logos, and more.
Cult Class is my personal artwork project where I create collages and sketches. I have prints for sale and am available to do custom pieces and projects.
