Website LAUNCH!

There’s a phrase “write what you know.” And in the case of Tesz Millan, it’s pretty clear, she knows how to be bold and creative. Tesz offers copywriting services spanning all industries and mediums.

The site was a collaboration, highly influenced by the shapes and stylings of a magazine layout. Bold and creative, the site is built around some fantastic professional images provided by the client, that help take the site from simply creative to almost dream-like.

It was a blast working with Tesz, and if you ever need copy written, you’ll get a first-hand taste of her “boldacious-ness”. Check it out at!

Having recently begun work in voiceover, Mia came to ArtistUpgrade needing to kick off a strong marketing campaign. Mia has a warm, vibrant, comforting voice, with a smooth, mellow and sexy sound, so designer Mick Lauer designed this simple and sweet site for Mia. We announce the official website launch for Professional Female Voice Talent, Mia Bankston!

Christian Bell has the classic guy next door sound perfect for ‘web explainers’- youthful, fun, and easygoing – so designer Katie Willis created a fresh site to complement Christian’s “best buddy” kind of voice. From the design came the tag line, “The fresh & friendly voice that fits”. Experience it for yourself – visit this awesome site.

AU voiceover client Jason Brough was so happy with his one page voiceover site that he came back to us for seconds! He contacted ArtistUpgrade in needs of a new website for a single product line of his manufacturing company JTI. The JTI Companies, Inc. has been an industry leader for over 20 years in fiberglass technology and support system design. JTI is the exclusive manufacturer of the JOVE® pipe and duct support system product line, and this website was designed to promote the JOVE® product line to engineers, while giving them an easy place to find information, download/view the catalogs, and contact the company. We were happy to work with Jason once again and design this one page custom site! Check it out at
