What do you need?
Create a unique logo that represents your business accurately. A professional logo increases trust and makes it easier for customers to identify and remember you so they are more likely to return again.
Every Business big or small needs an online home that at the very minimum is clean, professional, and easy for customers to find the information they need.
SEO & Social Media
Your website won’t be useful to you if customers can’t find it, and social media can be a landmine for businesses who don’t know how to navigate.
Flyers, adverts, brochures, business cards, banners, etc. All of these and more are important physical media that help a small business get the word out, and it helps if everything has a consistent style that fits your brand.
A native West Virginian, I believe in the values of hard work and treating everyone like a good neighbor. Since 2000 I've been involved in the graphic design world and have a long history of working with a large variety of organizations, businesses, and individuals catering to an incredibly diverse set of needs. I've worked in print, digital, marketing industries and nonprofits and this has blessed me with a broad skillset that you can benefit from.
Almost every business I've worked with over the years has been small, and I'm distinctly aware of the heavy burden that a small business owner has with trying to put together a brand that can compete with larger companies and at such a small budget. Most Businesses are too small to afford a full time graphic designer on their staff nor the hefty price of a corporate marketing firm, yet their need for these services is all the more dire.
In both business and nonprofit worlds, first impressions are everything. Making sure customers or supporters can find you and that your business looks its best when they do is essential to surviving and thriving in this fast evolving economy. Depending on what you need, I can provide consistent retainer services, one time startup packages, or even a la carte services. You only pay for what you need, and I guarantee that you'll get personal service for less than a marketing firm can offer and incredibly higher quality than an outsourced discount design site can offer. My consultations are always free, so please don't hesitate to contact me with questions.
This is the newest logo project I’ve been working on and I’m rather proud of it. This is for Heather’s Heirlooms, which is a new business specializing in handmade crocheted baby blankets. They are designer quality and made to last not just through baby’s years, but as an heirloom to be passed through the family’s[…]
Whenever I need to clear my mind in order to work more efficiently on my commission work, I take what I call a “sketch break” where I sketch or draw something that is not related in any way to my current commissions. This basically the artistic equivalent of a smoke break or coffee break, and[…]
NaNoWriMo, or “National Novel Writing Month” has just started this week! I may not be a novel writer, but I work with many novel writers who are very passionate about this month-long holiday and I myself do a fair bit of writing (blogs, short stories, social media posts, etc.) even though my main profession is[…]
Increasingly over my career in design, I’ve noticed that only about 40% or less of my work for clients is the physical act of me putting together the design they need. This personally observed statistic is just about the same whether I’m working as an employee for a company or as a freelancer with individual clientele.[…]
