WORKing
WITH
ME

Nothing is better than seeing a client's excitement when I share creative that brings their brand to life, surpasses their expectations, and genuinely goes well beyond achieving their project goals.

I bring a creative, thoughtful approach to each project and a design solution that's clean, tasteful, and makes a business shine.

PHILOSOPHY + PROCESS

graph_background_updated.jpg

Perhaps you are an individual who has left the corporate world and is starting a new venture or you've been doing contract work by word of mouth. Maybe you've owned a business for a while but your logo and website feel woefully out of date.

 

I love developing branding and collateral for individuals or businesses eager to have a simple yet polished, professional presence online, when networking, or meeting with clients in person. 

how can I help you?

working together

a call

First things first. We'll have a short call or zoom to discuss what your needs might be and if I can help.

a coffee

In order for me to get started, we'll meet face to face - in person or over zoom. This informal session will help me learn more about your business, your taste, and any ideas you have for your project. As we wrap up, I'll share some thoughts on creative direction, make sure we are aligned, and give you some clear to-dos.

a first look

I'll spend a little time creating some initial visuals to get your feedback. We'll review them via zoom, discuss next steps, and I'll explain anything I might need from you.

the build out

Once I have the information and elements I need, I'll start building the project. 

tweaks

I'll share my progress, get your input, then will make any necessary adjustments and continue to complete your project.

what sets me apart

one on one service

No forms to fill out, no impersonal communication. I love the process of getting to know my clients and truly understanding their businesses - it makes such a difference in the final product.

capturing the right voice

Many creative businesses rely on their clients to provide all the written copy for projects; they just concentrate on the design. I believe that a critical part of developing a brand includes discovering its voice. I write all of the copy so that it hits just the right tone, is to the point, and captures the feeling you want your business to project.

creative direction for imagery

High-quality imagery is an important asset that we will create or curate to make sure that your brand assets are the very best they can be. If we need to take photos, I will personally art direct the shoot to make sure that you're comfortable and that we walk away with exactly what we are after. 

an amazing network

I have a "short list" of fantastic professionals that love working with. From photographers and printers to makeup artists and stylists - I have confidence that their work will deliver.

pride in your brand

Expect a heightened feeling of enthusiasm and pride in your brand through the process - it feels so good to watch it all come together!
