So you’ve made it to our Client Throwback series, and boy, are you in for some (wait for it…) inspiration instigation!
We’re bouncing off the walls right now (and a tiny bit nervous!) because the person we’re about to introduce here is no less than a rising star in the world of accounting.
It’s time for you to meet Robyn D Jefferson (no connection to the old man you’re thinking about!)
So Who Is Robyn?
Good question this!
For that, we’ll have to rewind all the way to 2007. Back when Jobs had just announced the first-ever iPhone, Bush had freshly taken on the mantle as president, and a young lady named Robyn was concluding her bachelor’s in Accounting to set foot in the professional world.
With a drive to move forward and an immense passion for numbers, Robyn skimmed through a decade, making a name for herself as a financial advisor. Possessing a charisma seldom seen and a penchant to go the extra mile for clients, she quickly made a reputation as a unique, savvy & forward-thinking individual.
It wasn’t long before she also added the much-coveted CPA certificate to her impressive resume.
Fast forward to the present
Today, Robyn is a full-time member of the Texas Society of CPAs, lending her service to several core committees. She also does her bit in helping underprivileged communities to learn financial literacy. All this, while being a wife and a mother!
Not only that, she is at the helm of a fast-growing and successful CPA firm operating with her namesake, “Robyn D Jefferson CPA PLLC.” It’s this startup that began TechNerds collaborative relationship with Robyn.
But before we dive into it, let us answer this burning question in your head.

Client Journey: An Entrepreneur Is Born
It was in June 2020 when TechNerd’s first got a chance to interact with Robyn, and we have to confess, we were pretty impressed.
Robyn wanted to collaborate with us on bringing her CPA start-up to life by delivering her a modern website.
Now there are VERY few things we like more than working with start-ups (probably only pizza!), so this was a no-brainer.
From the beginning of our team’s first discussion with Robyn, It was evident that she had done her homework and possessed a clear idea of what she wanted to achieve with her website.
She’d already chosen and set apart the stylistic aspects of her project for our reference (This helps tremendously because it helps us narrow down a client’s vision)
From the fonts she wanted to use to the color palette she wanted us to incorporate, from her desired website layout to her favorite theme, everything lay bare like an open book.
Now the ball was in our court.
Designing A Brand Identity
Unique Brand identity is what differentiates a brand from its competitors. Its logo, images, web design, and values must all reflect through the visual aspects of a brand.
In the case of Robyn D Jefferson CPA startup, she had strong ideas regarding the kind of message she wanted her brand to embody.
A forward-thinking individual by nature, she wanted her brand to reflect that sentiment. She strived for a website that pitches convenience through technology, an Accountancy practice that breaks away from the norm, and a business model that is a realization of the future.
Armed with all these insights, our nerds took on the challenge of bringing Robyn’s vision to life.
Our design team began by crafting a logo that sheds light on her strong personality as an individual, creates recognition for her personal brand, and reflects true professionalism which is a hallmark of her personality.

Shades Of Robyn D. Jefferson
In the world of branding, colors take on a very significant role. This was Robyn’s preferred color palette, and it’s easy to see why. Take a closer look at what Robyn’s website colors symbolize.
One of the three core colors used on Robyn D Jefferson’s website is Rose Gold. This communicates luxury due to its association with precious metal and frequent use in jewelry. Gold is a wealth marker, so rose gold is often associated with style, elegance, and affluence. Since Robyn herself deals with wealth management, this is a great color to utilize.
Antique Brass stimulates a positive attitude, a sense of calm, and trust. It often shines the most when paired with rose gold.
Due to its warmth and radiance, Amber is connected to energy. Its vibrance inspires feelings of happiness and boldness. Based on color psychology, amber symbolizes and promotes confidence and comfort.
We utilized a Sweet Square Heavy Small Caps Font for the website to give it a clean & contemporary feel that is comfortable to read, blends well with the web theme, and aligns with Robyn’s forward-thinking approach.
Keeping in line with our promise of delivering a website that embraces modernity, we incorporated website animations on the homepage to make the website experience fun and engaging.
Now that we’ve described the science behind each element, this is how Robyn’s modern CPA website blends all of them.
The Homepage (HP)
The “Homepage“ is one of the, if not the most important, pages on a website. It sets the tone for what your visitors can expect from the rest of the website.
In Robyn’s case, We went with a modern minimalist design. We placed a custom GIF specially bought for Robyn’s website. All web elements blend with Robyn’s personality and vision of embracing the future, breaking stereotypes, and being engaging.
