HOW IT WORKS
Let’s Collaborate to Create Design To Be Proud Of!

We specialize in helping you take your design to the next level.

When you hire me, you get EXPERIENCE where it matters, a dedicated partner who will LISTEN to your needs, and HANDS-ON care, helping your organization SHINE

THE PROCESS

CONNECT

First things first! We’ll talk about your project, what your goals are, and how you envision your final product to look and feel. It’s simple, and also the most important step in the process, because it helps me best understand what your needs are.

 

After we talk, I will send you an estimate with cost projection and hours so that you have an idea of the low and high end costs of the project.

RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT

After we connect, I will get to work researching the best use of design for your project. This includes your branding and identity, competitors’ materials, and stylistic desires.

 

This research informs the development process, refining the elements that would be important to include to best convey your message.

DESIGN & REFINE

The fun stuff! I design and share with you several mock-ups that apply stylistic desires and research. Once you choose which mock-up works best, we begin the process of editing and refinement until you are 100% happy with how it looks.

 

The time that this takes can depend on the scope of the project.

LAUNCH

Once you are 100% happy with the final result, I will work with you every step of the way to a successful launch! This might mean connecting with a printer and uploading a final PDF to them, or it might mean launching a website and collaborating with your domain and hosting provider.

 

This last piece can be daunting for clients, but don’t worry, I have you covered!

SERVICES

My goal is to create design that YOU FEEL GREAT ABOUT, and provide

professional, gentle encouragement along the way.

Graphic Design

You’ve come to the right place if you’re looking to take your design to the next level.

 

My graphic design services can help you design the perfect collection of materials to make your organization, business, or event SHINE.

 

I’ll work with you on aesthetic and branding to make sure you are confident in how your project is going to be represented, and then we’ll look at any print materials that you might need. You can be sure that each printed design piece will seamlessly match your identity.

Web Design

I built my first website in 1997 via HTML and CSS, and many more since. I currently design all my client-websites with the WordPress platform, and here’s why:

 

Clients like to be able to make changes to their site without relying on me.  WordPress makes that easy.

 

Using WordPress is a treasure trove of beautiful designs, and plentiful functionality that can be customized to fit your unique look, without inventing the wheel. It ends up costing you less money  over time. I will teach you how to make simple changes to your site with a one-hour tutorial.

I’ll always be there to answer your questions and help you with larger changes or any issues that come up. I like win-win situations!

 

All the thoughtfulness, consideration, care, and research will go into the development of your new WordPress site! It’s perfect for anyone from non-profit organizations, businesses, local teams and groups, wedding sites, and any other project you can think of!

Communications

I love working with non-profits! When you partner with me to provide your communications needs, I invest in the well-being and success of your organization, developing a strong sense of how to move the organization forward.

 

In the last five years that I’ve been working with organizations in this capacity, I’ve found that there are great benefits of having someone onboard who knows the ins and outs of your design needs at an intimate level. Your materials will be consistent, clear, and well-designed. Hiring me lifts time constraints that your staff might have to do these tasks, and keeps  your design professional and top-notch.

 

I offer a discounted rate for organizations that hire my services for a set number of hours per month.

Photography

I incorporate photography into many of my graphic and web design projects, and can offer my clients photo sessions for your website and print material. I also provide a variety of photography sessions. Let me know what you have in mind!

 

My first camera was a FisherPrice 110 camera when I was eight years old from my amateur photographer dad. In high school, I started shooting concerts and a few years after that, I learned to use the darkroom. I’ve come a long way from that time, but the ritual of capturing moments and memories, and telling a story runs strong through my family history. It’s rare for me not to have a camera on me.

 

I offer photography sessions using natural light with a documentary style.
