Hey there!

I'm Corey Donenfeld

A freelance designer and developer based in New York City, using design as a medium to create lasting experiences.

Who am I?

I am currently working at Studio Simpatico as a Senior Developer.

I am a self-taught developer/designer who loves to learn. I have been designing and developing websites for five years. I write semantic and organized front-end code, dabble in back-end development, and eagerly dive into animation work. Exploration and learning are prominent parts of my identity, and I am fascinated by extending my creative abilities. I like taking complicated ideas and simplifying them into beautiful and intuitive designs. When I am not in front of a screen, you can find me playing ping pong, hiking, building with legos, baking desserts, or reading a book.

What people are saying


“It has been an absolute delight working with Corey at Studio Simpatico; he is a “self starter” in every sense of the phrase. Though he quite obviously possesses a raw talent for design and technology, the hours he’s spent pouring over others’ work, teaching himself advanced HTML/CSS/JS coding skills, and fearlessly diving into complex design challenges has produced a skillset and portfolio that rival industry techies many years his senior. On top of that, he’s a delight to work with—he is genuinely interested in his clients and their businesses, always thoughtful about his design solutions and how they solve real client and user needs. He is responsive, organized, and a quick learner, with a great sense of humor to boot. I can’t recommend Corey more highly or enthusiastically.

“Corey is an amazing web designer. I stand in awe of his ability to design and program effortlessly. He possesses a profound knowledge of web design, quickly taking new ideas and translating them into clean designs that are engaging. Corey was quickly able to understand our business and our offerings, further enabling him to design a website that was fresh and interactive. His keen understanding of our company and deep listening made it possible for flawless collaboration. He engaged in a meaningful way by consulting with us and building on our ideas which stimulated the creative process and resulted in unique solutions. He went above and beyond to make us happy, making working with Corey an enjoyable and creative experience. If you want a website that is going to ‘Wow’ everybody, then choosing Corey is a worthwhile endeavor.

“Corey Donenfeld created a great logo, business cards and website for our non-profit. I am very pleased with the final products! Corey impressed me on several levels and he clearly loves what he does. I appreciated his creativity and patience as he taught me how to manage the website which is a big deal as I have never done that before. He is super bright and was great to work with. Highly recommended – thank you, Corey!”

“I went into working with Corey, unaware of the possibilities we could take both Thoughtful Boxes’ brand and website. Through our first few calls and seeing the initial design work, I quickly realized that there was no limit to where we could take my business. Corey gave great direction to my company’s brand by offering thoughtful and intuitive advice. The deliverables were a sleek website with several creative touches that exudes the essence of what my company is all about. He is an excellent listener, and he is genuinely interested in what I am trying to do with Thoughtful Boxes. He went out of his way to make sure we were wholeheartedly satisfied. I look forward to many more collaborations with him. I highly recommend working with Corey to build your website and brand.”

“Working with Corey was both an honor and a privilege. He was interested in and enthusiastic about my music and creating a visual treatment that reflected how it sounded. I sent him some drafts of an album I was in the process of finishing, and not only did he want to listen to all of it, but he also had ideas about where I could take the project. We worked together, brainstorming a strategy that extending beyond looks and inspired feeling. He created a full, beautiful visual motif to accompany the project. Corey was extremely timely; he had drafts and a folio of different aesthetics ready before I knew it. He was efficient and understanding throughout the creation of some incredible work. He did a really, genuinely fantastic job, and collaborating with Corey not only resulted in a great logo but also was quite fun.”

“Working with Corey has been a delightful experience and one of the best decisions I have made for my company. Even after we received our completed website, Corey has been involved in making sure any errors are fixed quickly, and new features are implemented for a reasonable price. I have worked with other developers before, but I can firmly say that Corey’s competitors cannot match his quality at the same price. Purchasing a new website is an important investment for your company, as it gives you much more outreach to your potential clients, and this has been clearly reflected since we released the LeadPro website. Most importantly, Corey ensured my money was well spent on a website with innovative design and development. His approach in doing so was easy to follow, as he provided several updates of his progress and met the timeframes originally planned for the project. All of the feedback my team provided to him during the prototype stages was implemented into the final product, in addition to his advice on features that would improve user experience on the website. I recommend his services to anybody interested!”

David Goldstein

“Corey is a bright, smart and very thoughtful individual. He has a very bubbly personality alongside a comprehensive understanding of design and user interaction. Corey is extremely easy to work with, and helped develop my companies brand – TicketEM, taking it a level further. The website, logo, and panel designs he made for me were stunning, unquestionably displaying Corey’s talent and his vast range of expertise. From personal experience with Corey and seeing his working ability, I recognized his unique ability to quickly adapt to new challenges and ability to learn speedily. I look forward to continuing to work with Corey; he provides a service beyond any other. I have 100% trust and confidence in Corey, as should you.
