Fearlessly making the web a beautiful place.

My name is Alicia St. Rose and I am Intrepid Realist Design, a one-person front end web development and design company based in Santa Barbara, California.

I make handcrafted, standards compliant, clean, elegant websites.

I’d love to build one for you.

    Alicia's work on The House of Six Doors website completely captured the Caribbean feeling that the novel evokes. Her graphic design work and website layout provide visitors with an opportunity to feel the breeze of the trade winds and see the vibrant colors that characterize the small island of Curacao. Alicia's clarity of design and clear communication made working with her an absolute pleasure.
